Let me start by saying that sharing this post and the video embedded within this post terrifies me. I’m not naturally extroverted. Still, I like experimenting with video and figured the best practice material I could learn with was … me.
So, here is the outcome of my experimentation with the initial setup of video, lighting, audio and a few other bits and pieces. All of this done while unboxing my new Jackson Guitars X Series Signature Scott Ian King V KVXT. There needed to be something worthwhile in the video. The guitar is just that.
After no survey was done, I decided to add a couple of never-asked-for features to this website. Why? Well, because it’s my website and I’ll pretty much do what I like. 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.
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?
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.
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 updated bastardised a few years ago.
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.
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 …
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.
As far as close calls go, this month’s entry in the monthly guitar riff video challenge is as close as I’ve come. As I write this, there are two hours left until the end of November. Tomorrow morning will be December. Still, as soon as I hit Publish on this post, I’m eleven months into a successful blog series. There’s one to go! Maybe I’ll start it tomorrow.
This time last month, I was in Canada (eh). I was literally miles away from my regular world of websites and guitars—although if I stumbled across a guitar store, I did make time to inspect it thoroughly. By this time, I had already posted my September guitar riff challenge and I was enjoying a break from the norm—the norm not including bears and eagles I was seeing in the Rockies. Perhaps it was that break, perhaps it was the change in music I’d been listening to while on holiday, but this month’s monthly guitar riff challenge is actually a bit of a departure from the way I regularly play. And I like it! … Monthly guitar riff video challenge … the October edition
