    Some sensitive fingerpicking

    After watching some episodes of Homeskoolin with Tom Bukovac, I discovered this chord. It’s the one I’m using at the C position in this jam. In the process of trying to make it fit in various situations, I came up with this progression. Using my Gibson Les Paul Special into my Line 6 HX Stomp...

    Saddles that fit an American Standard from 2011

    My saddles are rusted, burred and pretty worn. It makes adjustment difficult and I suspect a lot of buzz is caused by my saddles. Wondering what I could buy as a replacement? Would love to keep the bent steel look!

    Some licks and chords with P90 pickups

    Found a nice clean tone using my Gibson Les Paul Special into my Line 6 HX Stomp. Decided to film myself jamming and ended up with this short rendition of House of the Rising Sun after some mindless noodling. It would’ve been longer if it hadn’t been for that mistake at the end. That was kinda...

    Did this Pink Floyd song as a tribute to my late father

    Today marks a decade since my father died. I’m not any good with words, so I figured I would make a musical tribute to his memory by doing my version of a song he loved. This is my version of “Shine on you crazy diamond” and every note in it is dedicated to his memory.

    Tried my hand at this Chris Buck solo

    Chris Buck did this solo last year for one of Paul Davids backing tracks. It rightly got a lot of attention, because it’s a beautiful and inspiring solo. I had to learn it in order to snag some licks and tricks and figured I would film it once I got it down. I used my P90 Gibson Les Paul...

    Got really frustrated with my playing the other day

    Got really fed up with my playing the other day. I was trying to make a video where I improvised over this backing track and did five attempts in total. Halfway through the fifth try I got really frustrated with myself. I found myself playing very boring lines that didn’t really say anything...

    Took my digital ampless setup into my analog garage

    Finally dragged my tiny pedalboard and computer into the garage for some jamming. In the garage, I can really hit those strings loudly without waking up the house as I’m a heavy handed player. I purchased a Line 6 HX Stomp some weeks ago and I’m very happy with how it is simulating amplifiers...

    Channeling feeling through improvisation

    Some songs just makes you feel a whole lot of stuff. “The Night We Met” by Lord Huron is such a song for me. I got the idea one late night to try and express the way it makes me feel by improvising some lead lines over the finger style guitar riff in the background. I used my Gibson Les Paul...

    Quit my band, here’s my final contribution

    How Olympic White ages (pics inside)

    So online I see there is a lot of talk about how these poly finishes age and fade. I took the pick guard off my American Standard from 2011 to have a look. This has been my only guitar for 10 years and has seen constant daily playing, countless recording sessions, over 100 gigs and plenty of...
