    Faking Slide Guitar using a Strat Tremolo

    Some humans are truly amazing - Check out this one man band

    Happened to run across this guy on YouTube named Steve Hill. He's a killer guitar player in the similar vein of Warren Haynes. And he plays guitar, drums and bass all at once. Pretty amazing and GREAT playing!

    My 59 Les Paul DC clone w/ killer P90's - Catfish Blues inspiration recording

    Same here. I don't really have a pickup preference. They're all great for something. Like you said, the DC Special is a great package. Lightweight, great access to higher frets, and killer fat tone. It's a rock and roll machine, no doubt.!

    The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Voodoo Child (Slight Return) (Live In Maui, 1970)

    Hendrix was one of the highest paid acts of that time period and he's playing in front of that crowd with no security and no barriers. It is pretty wild the differences between then and now as it pertains to security.

    My pandemic version of Hey Joe....

    Hi guys - I hope you are all safe and healthy! I was messing around the other day and tuned down a 1/2 step, which I haven't done in many years. I was amazed at how much looser the guitar feels. I think tuning down a 1/2 step is a critical part of Jimi's tone/sound. I am really loving it! If...

    Good morning guys - I've been practicing using my tremolo on my HSS Strat to make it sound like I'm using a slide. I had to bend the tremolo bar a good bit to get it close to the strings so I can keep my hand on the bar while I pick. Check out the below audio file and let me know what you think...

    I found a fun way to practice guitar

    I ordered one of the Amazon Echo Dot devices for $25. The Echo Dot allows you to play streaming music and has a sound output jack. I hooked it up to a spare guitar amp. Using voice command I tell Alexa to play a song, and I jam along with it. Amazon Prime has about 2 million free songs...

    New Guitar Day!

    Picked up this beauty on Craigslist. My first HSS strat. I think having a bridge humbucker on a Strat completes it. I love this guitar! 1. Tremolo system that stays in tune with the hardest abuse 2. Classic Strat neck PU tone with bridge humbucker can do it all (the Fender PUs actually...
