Guitar Print Giveaway Extension

Gibson ES-175SP

As you can see by the lack of posts recently, I’ve  been busy with real life (the blog has yet to become the Guitar media powerhouse allowing me to quit my day job… or buy a cup of coffee… just yet).  Unfortunately, this has also meant I haven’t been able to add more guitars to the Guitar Print Giveaway.  Because of this I’m going to extend the giveaway to November 2nd.  Between now and then I will definitely be adding more guitars for the print giveaway.

Experience Hendrix Abandons Jimi Hendrix Gibson Guitar?

Jimi Hendrix What

Since I seem to be posting so often about the Jimi Hendrix Gibson guitar debacle, I thought I’d post another quick update.  It appears that even Experience Hendrix have removed all mention of the guitar from their website.  Initially it had only been Gibson who seemed to be abandoning anything Jimi Hendrix related on their website.  Although, I couldn’t imagine why they would want to get rid of the Jimi Hendrix Piano, that was totally legit.

The Beatles – Day Tripper

The Beatles Day Tripper


As I mentioned in my lesson post last Friday, my instructor gave me Day Tripper by The Beatles as my homework.  The song is pretty straight forward, nothing very difficult really.  I can play all the bits and pieces, but for some reason, I had the toughest time playing the song straight through without constant screw ups.  It took more takes than I’d like to admit to get what’s in the final video.

Gibson Jimi Hendrix Guitar Canceled?

Jimi Hendrix Guitar On Fire

Ok, this is strange, but all of the links to the Gibson Jimi Hendrix guitar have been removed from Gibson’s website.  Has Gibson come to their senses and pulled the plug on the guitar that seemed to be wildly hated across the internet?  Could my fake Fender Les Paul post have been what made them see how utterly ridiculous it was for them to be making the Jimi Hendrix strat?  (don’t worry, I’m not that delusional)

Guitar Lesson – September 25th, 2009

Dr. Suess

For this weeks lesson we continued with the “circle of notes” diagram that I wrote about in my last lesson.  My instructor Kit likes to call this his “Dr. Seuss” lesson since at first glance it doesn’t quite make sense and I need to trust that it’s going somewhere.  This week I learned that this was more than just a memorization exercise to learn the notes backwards and forwards from any given note as I wrote last week.  This time, Kit added two new circles (shown below) with different “note spacing” between the notes.
