As recently written in my post titled Guitar Fascination branding, I have created a brand for a new website called Guitar Fascination. With this website comes a change to the Scarebear brand. It has been time for a change for a while now. The change is here.… Slowly transitioning to Guitar Fascination
Earlier this year I purchased another awesome deal from the folks at AppSumo—I’ve mentioned them and my happy addiction to their deals before. This deal was with the fine folks at Sticker Mule. It was time to put my brand on stickers so I could place them on random cars.
I wouldn’t really do that. Please don’t do that.… Custom stickers from Sticker Mule
Even though 2020 felt like quite the disaster, there were some great musical moments to be had. Many bands released awesome albums during times where the world truly needed something good to look forward to. Even though I’ve done this annual summary of my favourite album releases before, never have I felt the list to be so vital and required.
A great album release was something worth its weight in gold this year. When so much went wrong, it was critical to enjoy these new musical moments.… My 10 favourite albums of 2020

Still, if you are interested in having content sent to you so you don’t have to keep checking this site for updates, you’ll like at least one new feature.… New website features
I was going through my YouTube content that nobody else goes through—which makes 100% sense to me on account of the low video quality and frequency—when I realised I never compiled a playlist of the 12 riffs I created in my 2018 challenge. Better late than never?… My monthly riff challenge of 2018—the summary
Have you landed here and you’re wondering “what am I doing here?”, “what does this site do/offer?” or “has anybody seen where I left my plectrum?”. Hopefully this quick article can answer some of those questions.
Some. Because, no … I haven’t seen your plectrum.
I once started a series of articles on the guitars I have in my own collection. I started that series when all the images on this website were in black and white. I’ve since decided it was time to start the series again. What better place to start this updated series with one of the guitars I

This is the story of my C Giant acoustic guitar. The acoustic guitar I bought from Aldi. It seemed like a sensible idea at the time.… The C Giant acoustic guitar I bastardised
For the last couple of years, I’ve been attempting to create and maintain a multiple-website presence for my Scarebear brand/identity/handle. There was a website for the parent brand—the domain you’re currently on—as well as dedicated websites for my hobbies which include the following …… End of a decade, end of the multi-site approach
Before I write another word, I need to say … this is a positive story. I love my Moniker Guitars custom Reedsdale guitar. I wish I had an opportunity to order another guitar from Moniker Guitars. Sadly, I can’t. Nobody can. Moniker Guitars is no more. This makes me lucky—I already have one.… The untold story of my Moniker Guitars custom Reedsdale
