A quick update from DC, where rock and roll is alive and well!
I’ll have some new playing and gear content up here in August. In the meantime, since there’s been a lot of music business / psychology of music posts on GuitArchitecture lately, I thought I’d touch on both areas with some new posts on Guitar-Muse.
First up, is a post on my Pickboy Speed King pick. It’s a weird and cool piece of gear and the flatpickers amongst you might find some DIY inspiration in pick design there. You can read all about it here.
Secondly, I’m doing a player profile series for Guitar-Muse and the first player up is the former Vincent Cusano (Vinnie Vincent). Vinnie has gotten a lot of attention in the press for everything but his guitar playing, but in many ways he’s a fascinating player to me. He managed to fully embrace the shred aesthetic and do it in a really unique way. Vinnie’s pentatonic-based approach produces some cool sounds that you can find here.
The player profile series is going to feature some cool guitarists that mostly fly under the radar. As I mentioned before, the series will also include Alex Masi, Vlatko Stefanovski, Ridgely Snow, and José Peixoto.
There should be some gear/tech pieces on modeling, tone and amps with some other interviews getting posted into August/September.
That’s it for now!
More stuff next week and as always thanks for reading.
