G&L Doheny Demo

Believe it or not, G&L does not stand for “Griff & Laura,” though it’s a striking coincidence… especially considering Leo’s old haunt is mere minutes from my home in Corona (they’re still on Fender Ave. in Fullerton.) And luckily, they occasionally ask me to try stuff out and they make videos. Well that happened last…

Better Practicing With Technology.

It’s a great time to be a guitar player…  I know it sounds like me being old, but “back in the old days” the idea of being able to slow down sections, loop them without having to take your hands off the guitar, and generally doing everything you can to a track to make it…

An Under-The-Radar Overdrive Pedal

So… I was doing some Facebook Live time yesterday to show a pedal that is new to me. It’s not a new pedal, by any means, it’s been around for many years and is just a run-of-the-mill Boss OD3. It’s just labeled “Overdrive.” But as you’ll hear – it’s a GREAT pedal and if you…

As you may have heard, I recently released Classic Rock Guitar Unleashed (and  a lot of folks are really digging it, thank you!) Well one of the questions I got asked a lot was in regards to the tones on the recordings for the course (there are over 180 tracks to play along with) and…

Pedalboard Day 12-4-16

So… I was in the studio yesterday and did a little Live stream on Facebook about the pedalboard I used in Memphis back in October for BGU Live. It seemed to answer some questions so I figured out how to migrate it over to YouTube and embed it here (jenius!) It’s a little rambling… it…

Why I Love Gear…

I love guitar gear – amps, guitars, pedals, slides, picks, strings, straps, cases, cables… you name it, I’m into it. But guitar gear can be a frightening thing if you’re new to the sport… A lot of money can be spent, and like most things there is a point of diminishing returns. Does a $400…
