    I’ve seen the myth grow in the guitar world, but Leo Fender went from maple to rosewood not because it sounded any different, but because he didn’t like how dirty the maple fretboards looked after a...

    Sinker is pretty cool. Moon spruce is my favorite because of when they harvest it, but I’m a big fan of anything with a history. A friend of mine builds electric guitars out of joists taken out of...

    I’ll have to give that shot. My method was to strike the strings a few times, line up the audio from the video and the audio from the mic so they’re lined up, and then strip and delete the camera’s...

    I use a Yeti (super capable mic, but it does take some experimenting to find the right setting, angle, and placement) and my phone to record the video. Until just recently, I used GarageBand and...

    He certainly does. I try hard to resist most of them because I’m working hard on arranging from standard notation and trying to build that skill, but I saw this one and couldn’t resist.

    Hallelujah (Fingerstyle)

    I’ve always liked this song and wanted to learn it and then Ten Thumbs put out an arrangement on it and I couldn’t resist. It was definitely the toughest piece I’ve tackled so far and since our...

    Reading The Practice of Practice was a pretty eye-opening experience. Tons of cool science to practice routines!

    It took time for your brain to remember the distances between frets and strings so it makes sense that switching to different scales throws you off, but just like learning the spacing for one scale,...

    Just wanted to jump in because you mention where to put your fingers for tab AND CHORDS and say that with both single notes and chords, finger placement should be looked at with efficiency in mind. A...

    I subscribe, but it’s mostly to show support and to get hard copies of the lessons. It’s no Fretboard Journal, but it’s worth supporting. ;-)

    Depends. Short trips (2 weeks or less) and I’ll probably bring a soprano because I’m probably just going to be practicing a piece I’ve already arranged. Longer than that and there’s a chance I’ll...

    I have a Kamaka and a Kanile’a and I play them both (the Kamaka more because of the more comfortable neck shape) and, when I lived in Hawaii, wouldn’t hesitate to bring them to the beach to play...
