Hello again fellow gear-heads!  So, LAST WEEK we started a four-part series on the best replacement speakers for Fender's latest re-issue series the "drip-edge" 1968 amps.  We are going from smallest to largest, and so this week we will be discussing the best replacement speaker for the '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb amp, which produces about 22-watts via a pair of 6V6 tubes and feeds it to a single 12" speaker, ie: a formula that is proven like none other. Like every other Fender "Deluxe" model, this one is a...

2020: Biggest Year EVER for Guitar

Howdy gang, so last week we talked about the dismal state of live music through 2020, and our hopes for a brighter future.  However, there is an enormous silver lining to have came out of the dark cloud of 2020.  Fender announced that they sold more new guitars in 2020 than in any year in history ... ever!  Wow. Read the whole uber-cool story at Guitar World HERE.  Seriously, it's worth the read.  Just as good is this article in the New York Times entitled "Guitars are Back, Baby!".  Folks,...

How to Host A Socially Distanced Concert 2021

2020 was a year of great disappointments for live music lovers, musicians, entertainers, venues, and concert promoters alike.  Personally, just as it looked like my new duo was ready to take on the world with a major record deal and great concert opportunities, the world ... stopped!   Far too many of y'all out there had similar experiences, right?  I mean, we went from "2019 was awesome, and 2020 is going to be the most amazing year yet" to "will there EVER be an even decent year ever...

How Playing DRUMS Improves Your Guitar Playing and Makes You a More Well-Rounded Musician

Hey again fellow guitar lovers!  Last week I discussed how playing bass has made me a better, more well-rounded guitar player and musician, let's build on that! So again, if we travel back through time, we will see that only a few years after getting my first guitar, I acquired my first drum set; I believe I was about 16 and I used the set to track my own demos in the little studio I had built.The kit was awesome, an old Ludwig kit from the 1960's, and that kit would come with me to Nashville and become the...

How Playing Bass Improves Your Guitar Playing and Makes You a More Well-Rounded Musician

Howdy guitar gang!  It's January of 2021 as I pen this blog, I thank God for my gig playing bass at a local church.  Shoot, as musicians, ANY gig we get we should be grateful for.  Most clubs are gone, most concerts are gone, well, most live music is gone, so folks take what ya can get!  Shoot, do WHATEVER you can to keep your chops up and keep playing music with other real, flesh-n-blood musicians.  Sorry for my side-trip there, let's get to today's topic: why a guitar player NEEDS to spend...

How To Keep Your Guitar Chops Up While In Isolation

Holy Cow, gang ... did 2020 take a hard left turn into the dumpster or what?  I mean, seriously? Who the heck would have thought that isolating yourself from other humans would EVER become a SUGGESTED practice, right?  Psychology has been telling us for a century or so how dangerous isolation is to our mental well-being, and that's for "normal" people.  But we musicians are far from normal.  We need, DESPERATELY NEED, each other.  A one-man jam session, well ... isn't!  So to get started...

How To Host Socially Distanced Live Music Events

Musical friends, 2020 has been one heckuva challenging year for ALL of us involved in live events.  We can argue about just what the heck the truth is about this "pandemic", but ultimately that's not what matters when it comes to being a musician; what matters is how to keep the music flowing.  How to keep getting on stage, and keep entertaining folks ... and I ain't talking "virtual" here, that'll be covered in next weeks blog, I'm talking the real deal!  Let's talk about how one company, here in the...

Best Speaker upgrade for Blackstar HT5 / HT5R (MK1 or MK2)

Okay gang, last week we talked about the best speaker upgrade for the super versatile Blackstar HT Club-40, this week, let's talk about it's splendid little sibling, the HT5R.  In case you missed the memo, 5-watt tube amps are all the rage these days.  Almost all of em are single-ended amps with a single 6V6 or EL84, and Personally, I find most to just plain be too mushy in the bottom end; but this lil gal is different!  The HT5R (and the verb-less HT5) actually come about their 5-watts(ish) via a unique...

Best Speaker Upgrade For Blackstar HT Club 40

Folks, the Blackstar HT series Club 40 is a true thing of beauty.  Man, I love products made in Korea!  Move over Japan; Korea is the new Asian manufacturing mecca, and  Blackstar amps are certainly proof of this fact.  Honestly,  Blackstar doesn't make a BAD amp, but there is something just ...well ... downright perfect about the Club 40; if ya only had ONE amp and it was the Club 40, you'd be fine.  Let me point out right here and now, this is NOT a review of the amp, you'll find plenty...
