I've always associated them with Eastwood guitars in that they take familiar guitars and put a nice twist on them, or take less familiar guitars and re-introduce them to the masses.I love the top on this Left-Handed Sad Fester. Is that walnut? Or something more exotic? I've checked their website quickly and could not find one like this to find out.At $400 it would be a great guitar for any lefty.

    In a 2009 article titled A Buyer’s Guide to Carbon-Fiber Instruments featured in the music magazine All Things Strings, a prediction was made that carbon fiber would begin replacing wood in string instruments in the low price range. But why carbon fiber? What is all the hype about this material? Most people haven’t had the opportunity to pick The post What’s the Deal with Carbon Fiber Guitars?

  • The Return of House of Floyd

    Zack Urlocker
    11 May 2015 | 9:19 am
    I happened to be back in Santa Cruz for a brief visit and was delighted to see that, House of Floyd, one of my favorite tribute bands, had a gig at the Rio theater in Santa Cruz. As lead guitarist Pat Potter said, playing in Santa Cruz is like homecoming week. It was a full house and fans were excited to see the band in full form with lasers, smoke machines, a trippy video montage and of course a giant pig.  One of the best things about seeing House of Floyd, is that it's a different show every time. The Pink Floyd catalog is so deep, that there is always an exciting mix of songs.
  • 2 Cool MIDI Guitars on Kickstarter

    Zack Urlocker
    11 Apr 2015 | 11:08 am
    We're coming into the final days on two very cool electronic instruments on Kickstarter.  They're sort of electronic guitars, but sort of something else also. While I have my reservations, based on how fast both got funded, there's clearly interest in innovative musical instruments. Artiphon Instrument 1 is a general purpose MIDI controller that looks like a super short scale guitar and can be used as a guitar, a keyboard, a drum pad or a violin. While super innovative, I somehow wonder whether it's trying to do too much. Still, if you were traveling and wanted to have…

    25 Jan 2015 | 4:21 pm
    I admit, I'm late to the party. How did I miss this? If you have any interest in music, you have to watch "Searching for Sugar Man." It's the story of Detroit singer songwriter Sixto Rodriguez who issued two albums in the early '70s, faded into obscurity yet became the voice of a generation in South Africa. This is like discovering some bootleg Dylan album produced by Phil Spector that got shelved for 40 years. If it was fiction you'd say it was too far-fetched. Yet, it's all true. Checkout the trailer below. Amazon: Searching for Sugar Man, Rodriguez …
  • Nick Lowe's Quality Holiday Revue

    Zack Urlocker
    14 Dec 2014 | 10:41 am
    I managed to catch Nick Lowe and his Quality Holiday Review at The Ark in Ann Arbor this week. What a great show! Nick played a short acoustic set and was then joined on stage by the fabulous surf-guitar band Los Straitjackets. While you might find this to be an incongruous mashup, especially given the mexican wrestling masks, it worked perfectly. They added a retro-modern shimmer to the whole show. Despite my concerns that a "Holiday Revue" would mean a lot of cliché'd christmas songs, the set was a great blend of classic Nick Lowe, more recent works, instrumentals by Los…
  • S.F. Sorrow - The First Rock Opera

    Zack Urlocker
    8 Oct 2014 | 7:55 pm
    If you ask most people to name a rock opera, they'll probably come up with "Tommy" and not much else. Until recently, I had assumed The Who's "Tommy" was not only the definitive rock opera but also the first.  But as I learned listening to the public radio show SoundOpinions, Pete Townshend was beat out by a year with a release of the album "S.F. Sorrow" by the UK band The Pretty Things. The Pretty Things started out as a typical UK R&B band with a claim to fame of being hairier, dirtier and raunchier than The Rolling Stones. The Pretty…

    Dry. Deep. Bassy. Strong. Those are just a few words that describe these D-shaped “muscle” guitars that Martin bravely brought to the market many years ago (when smaller, more well-balanced acoustic guitars were favored). The guitars are aptly named after World War I era battleships, “Dreadnoughts” (source).

    How much time have you spent over the years searching around for the allen wrench to unlock your locking trem? I remember on my old Ibanez RG550DX I had a little double allen wrench holder on the back of the headstock and that was probably the only time I knew where they were… as long as I remembered to put them back in once I had finished using them. If you have watched the video above and you have a Floyd Rose trem you may be interested in the Turbo Trem Arm which includes an Allen wrench built into the short end of the unit, what a great idea. The Turbo Trem is available in chrome,…

    I’m a big fan of imitation when it comes to learning how to improvise in the bebop style. This may seem counterintuitive but we learn to speak the same way, by imitating our parents. I’ve given a lot of thought to how we improvise and what would be most effective way to learn the skill. After years of practicing a lot of ineffective things I finally started imitating jazz professionals such as Robert Conti and Greg Fishman (sax player). I learned a variety of solos and etudes as well as licks. I was having a blast and really sounding like a jazz musician! One part that took some…

The venue was reminiscent of a post-apocalyptic coliseum straight out of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, where  sweat-drenched fans packed the floor, two upper balconies surrounding the stage and the arena floor below. Air conditioning was nowhere to be found. I can only assume it was not included in the price of admission. Vocalist, Myles Kennedy, shouted from the stage; “This is my favorite venue in New York to…

    Due to the mirror effect, I’ve always found it easier learning from a right handed teacher.  I’ve often wondered if the opposite is true in that right handed players would find it easier learning from a lefty teacher? I see no reason why not… When I first started playing guitar I always found it easy learning from other players, whether it be in real-life or on the screen.  I learned to play using the DVD course from MetalMethod (actually, come to think of it, it was VHS – jeez!) and never thought twice about the difference it made being left handed and using those…

    The music works best when King least literal in his tribute. Much of the still-vibrant quality of Jordan’s recordings lies in the innocently sly charm of his rapid-fire delivery, and King gets a little breathless at times when going word for word with the original. He does a creditable job on “Beware, Brother, Beware,” reminding us that rap was alive and well

    Cheap electric guitars are probably a bit subjective. Because who defines cheap? In Virginia, “cheap” probably means less money that it does in, say, the Bay Area in San Francisco. But one thing that can be more easily measured is the idea of value, or getting something worthwhile, regardless of what you’re spending.

In fact, I spent quite a long time with them believing that I will improve my finger independence and speed.

We says things like: “If only I had more time…:”, “It’s too difficult…”, “I don’t have talent…”, “I can never be so good…”.

But first let’s examine what is the most common approach that aspiring guitar players use when learning a new guitar solo. The process may look something like this: (assume we are going to learn solo from Stairway to heaven) You listen to the whole solo for a few times to get a big picture. You download a tab (hopefully not) or start transcribing (learning the solo by ear and creating your own tab or notation). Once you are done transcribing,…

    When you start getting into playing over changes, whether in jazz or blues, it can seem like a daunting task to have all those scales in all keys on demand. In order to play over changes effectively by changing scales as the chord changes, your scale knowledge needs to be second nature i.e. you must be able to seamlessly blend one scale into another without really thinking about it. If you have to think, or find root notes, or work out what scale to play then you’re in no man’s land, and probably feeling a few heated stares and raised eyebrows from fellow bandmates into the…

  • 3 Simple Methods for faster chord changes

    Danny
    17 Apr 2015 | 12:03 pm
    One thing that crops up time again from students everywhere is the dreaded issue of chord changes. I spend a lot of time in the early stages with my private students helping them get past this hugely frustrating part of playing the guitar, and I answer quite a few emails on this subject too. I hate to see it when students start learning the guitar with loads of passion and ambition only to lose interest or get super frustrated because of this issue. Often they will then stick the guitar up the attic for 10 years and let it gather dust while their musical ambitions slowly fade away. It`s a…

  • 10 Commandments of Jam – Derek Trucks

    Hopefully some of my students will find this useful. Spot on advice from a well seasoned player. 1. Just listen. Make sure that when you’re on stage with others, you are paying attention to what’s going on and not getting self-involved in your own world. 2. Respect everyone else’s musical space. The easiest way to kill a vibe is by jumping in and adding your two cents too soon, while someone else is still trying to build something. Just let things happen. 3. Make you sure you are telling a story. Never just be playing scales, filling space or going through the motions. Sometimes people…

    As some of my students transition from pupil to music professional, and start working in their own musical world, – they occasionally ask which songs should they ‘have’ in their wedding repertoire if they are asked to perform for a wedding. While some pieces may be requested by the Bride, Wedding Planner or ‘friend'; it’s always good to have some suggestions in cased you are asked While my list is not meant to be exhaustive, I have included a few of the ‘legit’ (or ‘Classical’) pieces that I have been requested to play for the brides…

    Are you a big fan of guitar? If the answer is positive then you must know that the guitars available at less expensive price rate have solid tops along with laminated sides and back.

Manufacturing of Guitars- A Big Challenge As a result, manufacturers are at their wits end to turn toward readily available variants like early woods and manmade materials. If you are highly ambitious of acoustic guitars, then it is…

  • Mesa Engineering Flux-Drive

    18 May 2015 | 6:19 am
    The Flux-Drive is the overdrive pedal for those who want more of all the best things from an overdrive. It has more liquid gain and enhanced sustain that easily feeds into rich harmonic overtones making it incredibly addictive and inspiring to play, whether into a clean amp channel or especially to enhance a crunch or higher gain channel! It also offers a more complete tone-shaping network with individual Treble and Bass controls. This architecture makes the Flux-Drive a more complete preamp with added versatility beyond that of most overdrive pedals.

    Go from crisp “bathroom” slap echoes to epic, Gilmouresque delays with the MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay. Featuring 600ms of delay time with optional modulation, and a three-knob layout that controls Delay, Mix, and Regen. In addition, there are two internal trim pots that offer user-adjustable width and rate control of the modulation for even more tonal options. All done by a completely analog audio path for authentic rich, warm analog delay—made possible only by old-school analog bucket brigade technology.
  • Aqua-Puss Analog Delay

    Rob
    8 May 2015 | 9:30 am
    The Aqua-Puss MkII is making its triumphant return, ready to bathe a tone-thirsty world in gorgeously smooth delay. One twist of the Delay knob takes you from a tight 20ms delay to a cavernous 300ms. The Feedback control regulates delay duration and intensity. But watch out. Extreme settings can send the Aqua-Puss MkII into self-oscillating psycho-freak-out mode! Meanwhile the Blend knob lets you set a balance between dry and delayed signal—from mild to wild. The Aqua-Puss MkII delivers all the spooky mystery of vintage analog delay and tape-based echo, with none of the hassle of creaky,…
  • Mesa Engineering Tone-Burst

    Dave
    8 May 2015 | 7:03 am
    The Tone-Burst Boost/Overdrive offers a virtually transparent gain range usually associated with “clean” boost pedals. However, the Tone-Burst has enough gain to boost your guitar to the threshold of clip and slightly beyond, making it far more useful for a variety of applications. It’s incredibly powerful for adding boost, drive and/or EQ to any guitar and amp combination. Whether using it as a utility to boost the output of single coils to match a humbucker or as a subtle overdrive when a standard overdrive may be too much, the Tone-Burst is an incredibly useful and expressive pedal…
