New website features

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.

Another 52 Guitars, week 18—JHALE Guitars NoneMoreBlack

It’s been a while since I added to this series. I apologise for that. It just hasn’t felt like the most important thing for me to focus my thoughts and energies on in these current times. Having said that, I wanted to make sure my next article in this series did something to promote someone who wasn’t representing a huge brand but instead was doing their best to get their voice heard in a crowded market.

The first guitar I thought of was the NoneMoreBlack by JHALE Guitars. Now I know that this article isn’t going to do much to help Jay—owner and luthier at JHALE Guitars—but if I’m going to reconnect with my joy for guitars and blogging, I couldn’t think of a better guitar to start with.

Another 52 Guitars, week 17—B.C. Rich Mockingbird Extreme with Evertune bridge

My true love for metal guitar came along as I lived as a teenager through the 80s. I loved all genres of metal in the 80s, but some of the more memorable bands played the pointiest of pointy guitars and few were pointier than B.C. Rich. As I continue my series of guitars I’d love to purchase—all guitars having something new to add to my collection—the Mockingbird Extreme with Evertune bridge ticks a lot of boxes.

It doesn’t hurt that the guitar just looks amazing.

Songs that say “Go!” … the running summary list

I’ve written three articles on this subject so far. The original Songs that say “Go!”, the cleverly titled follow-up More songs that say “Go!” and the genius third article Even more songs that say “Go!”. Well, since putting those articles together, I have amassed over 50 tracks that feature that motivational line/lyric … “Go!”

I figured I may as well keep a running list of all the songs in the list—not just those that have featured in the previous articles with their embedded videos of awesomeness.

Where do I go from here?

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.

Another 52 Guitars, week 16—Grainger Guitars Hades

One trend I’m noticing more with the guitars I’m coming across for this year’s Another 52 guitars series is the craftmanship that is going into some of the more boutique luthiers I’m discovering. Honestly, I’m loving the way the modern guitars are looking. Don’t get me wrong, I love the traditional shapes as much as anyone else, but for the guitar industry to have a future I honestly believe it needs guitars that are unique. Guitars such as the Hades by Grainger Guitars. This thing is absolutely beautiful.

Even more songs that say “Go!”

Truth be told, when I made my initial article/list for Songs that say “Go!”, I had no idea how many songs I’d end up with in my playlist. After the second article, I figured “Well, that must be just about all of them”.

All I can say now as I begin this third article is that I was wrong. This list could get quite large. To prove that point, here’s several more additions to the list for your listening and viewing pleasure.
