You know, they actually do a good job of making it look like they’re playing…

Exhaustive…

22 February, 2010

I was looking for the definitive answer to flange and phase shifting and got what is probably one of the most exhaustive explanations ever:

Q. Whats the difference Between phasing and flanging

You’re Welcome…

I’d just like to say that quite a few months ago I posted something about Orianthi and she’s seems to be slowly erupting as a more recognizable, dare I say “pop” artist.

My 10 views a day probably had a lot to do with that one… you’re welcome, btw…

Why Ed O’Brien is Awesome…

19 January, 2010

Part, I dunno, VI, I think? Anyway, here are a few more great examples of Ed’s guitar work (and work as a badass, in general):

As you can plainly see, Ed has written an amazing guitar part that creates the entire ambiance and atmosphere in this song, which is the most important part of ‘Let Down’. If you were to strip away the vocals, this song would have the exact same effect, emotionally, that’s a feat in and of itself in rock music. Also, getting that tone of a Rickenbacker is amazing.

Truth:

In LA, if you see a girl and think she’s cute, chances are good that she has been made aware of it by too many other people to be level.

He’s right… I do like the riff more than the band…

Today’s Noelism: 5/11/09

11 May, 2009



And if that wasn’t enough, I spent the day by a virtually deserted pool right on the beach. Hungover. Just me. And some beautiful people playing volleyball in the pool.

The atmosphere was spoiled somewhat by “Man, I Feel LIke A Women” by that Shania Twain playing somewhere in the distance. 3 TIMES!!

Still, it’s days like these that I’m glad I persevered with that bloody guitar when I was a young boy.

This. Is. So. True.

Thank you, College Humor, for making this video. You have now joined the ranks of Family Guy in making fun of douchy college guys who get girls because they learned the first two parts of Lover Lay Down and Time of Your Life.

Hooray…

Got a new axe today off of eBay. Its a Silver Creek T-160 and it kicks ass. The reviews on Musicians Friend are definitely spot on. After a set up this thing will kick even more ass. I finally have an auditorium style acoustic. Its been a long time coming…

Good Stuff…

I was gonna post “That Great Day” by Johnny but I couldn’t find it because most of Johnny’s fan base is made up of Super-Christian girls that don’t like blues and don’t know how to use technology so here is another classic from Turn Around. Its the title track. Recorded live at the concert here from 2 weeks ago. That I missed. Because I’m retarded… 😦



Good Times, Ya..

Peter Green was the real genius behind Fleetwood Mac , not those other douche bags. Unfortunately, his excessive use of LSD caused him to become a Schizophrenic and it all but destroyed him and his career.

Well, a few decades, a shit load of therapy and medication and much needed R&R later I’d say this is a comeback for him… Not the same, but then again, it would be damn near impossible to match what he did in the beginning…

This is Why I (platonically) Love JM…

You be you! John Mayer, retired astronaut…

P.S. Apparently TMZ found this in John’s “garbage”… funny stuff…

New DTB…

12 January, 2009



The new DTB album comes out tomorrow, if its half as good as Songlines I’ll be happy…

He’s joking right?

Daniel Craig is quoted as saying (about playing Noel Gallagher):

closequote“Well, I can play the guitar better than he can so I don’t know how that’s really going to work. He hasn’t spoken to me about that yet, but if he wants to make a deal…”closequote

This is sheer blasphemy I tell you, blasphemy! I’m a huge Daniel Craig fan (but, most obviously, especially if you know anything thing about me, a much more massive Oasis fan) but this has to be a joke. I mean, I’m a better guitar player than Noel Gallagher, but I would never admit it outright to the press. Noel is one of my heroes, he’s probably number 2 of all time ever, he is one of the coolest people on the planet. So I, respectfully, tell you, Daniel Craig, to fuck right off if you’re being serious.
