The Iceman Shreddith

A cool thing about being me is that people bring over really cool guitars for me to play. The other day, my friend Jerry stopped by with a “vintage” Ibanez ICEMAN with an 8-string neck. First of all, can something from the seventies be considered “vintage?” Second, OMG WTF how have I missed this guitar? I played a “Paul Stanley” Iceman years ago and it was very nice but this guitar has double-course first and second strings with two extra tuners sticking out the back. How cool is that?

Practice Makes Ready

There is a thing I do every day and I have been doing it for a really, really, really long time. I add a third “really” now that I just had a birthday.

I’m pretty sure that means that I have been playing guitar, very nearly every day, for 50 years. Even during the years of raising kids and having a “real job,” part of my income was earned giving guitar lessons or playing local gigs, so I have practiced my guitar a little every day.

Under the category of useful software tools for musicians, you should definitely put a star next to Amazing Slow Downer by Roni Music. Here’s what it’s good for and how it can help you.

Have you ever had to learn a cover tune and it just went by too fast? You have to keep backing it up and backing it up and then the cat steals the remote and, chasing her, you knock your coffee over on your notes and… well, you get the picture.

A Little Monday Morning Blues - with Grigor, Lapple and OBrien

I found another take from a JAM with Ed and Shane. We were all done with a video shoot and just hanging around drinking bud from a can and playing some blues. I love that little Republic guitar of his. I covet it. Not one like it. It. Sweet little gitbox. We are all talking about playing some more, maybe a SoCal git or two, somewhere on the coast. Keep an eye out for us over there, I’ll be the one with no shoes on.
