Guitar Print Giveaway

Gibson Les Paul Goldtop

This blog is here because of my love of guitars.  For my day job I’m a photographer.  I recently decided to combine the two and started taking pictures of guitars and offering fine art prints of my guitar images.  Due to the positive response I’ve received about the images and prints and to commemorate the new images and print offer I decided to give away three prints.

Gibson Jimi Hendrix Model Guitar

Jimi Hendrix Gibson Flying V

The folks over at Gibson are apparently going to make a Jimi Hendrix signature model guitar. I find this a bit curious. While yes it is true he did play a Gibson Flying V on occasion, I think we all know  Jimi’s main guitar was a Fender Stratocaster. If they were to do a Jimi Hendrix  Flying V, that would be cool, but from the sound of the article that’s not what this is going to be. These guitars are “inspired by” Jimi Hendrix.

John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers With Eric Clapton – Hideaway

John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers With Eric Claption

I was sitting around reading the latest issue Of Guitar Aficionado and there was an article about the Gibson Sunburst Les Paul from 1958-1960.  In it, they write how Eric Clapton was the first to really popularize the guitar for a lot of the 60’s British guitarists.  Jimmy Page was quoted as saying “Eric was the first one to evolve the sound with the Les Paul and Marshall amps”.  In the article Guitar Aficionado write about how the John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers albums shows off what Clapton was doing with the Les Paul Sunburst, in particular the song Hide Away (a Freddie King remake).

Guitar Lesson – September 11th, 2009

MrMiyagi

It seems my new instructor, Kit, is a bit like Mr. Miyagi and right now he has me waxing cars and painting fences.  I trust it’s all going somewhere.

First off, he had me stop practicing scales all together because of my picking motion.  He told me not to do one more scale until he tells me.  Somewhere along the way I apparently picked up the habit of “economy picking” rather than  strict alternate picking.   My previous instructor, Bruno, also suggested I try to stop economy picking but he wasn’t quite as fanatical about it as Kit seems to be.

Tascam GT-R1 Review

Tascam GT-R1

So far for all my recordings I’ve been using the Tascam GT-R1 and it’s built in microphone.  I’ve been pretty happy with the quality, but that may just be because I haven’t tried any alternatives.  I did just order a Shure SM57 microphone to see if that helps with recording quality.
