It Might Get Loud

I’m pretty sure I don’t need to tell you about It Might Get Loud, but I’m pretty excited to see the release dates that were recently announced.

I wanted to get familiar with the nuances of each guitar before throwing effects into the mix. But after seeing the video he posted comparing the different versions of Big Muff Pi through the years, I think I might have to dive in and get one.

What's Going On?

It’s been a couple weeks since I started this blog and I thought I’d post another “what’s this site all about” post since I’ve had some more time to think about it.  I’m sure I’ll have some further insight down the road, but this is what I’ve been come up with so far.

Blues In G

Here’s a little riff my guitar teacher taught me to help with playing bar chords. It’s pretty simple and sounds pretty cool.  Just pick a strumming pattern you like.
