Throwback Thursday. The man, myth and legend: Mr Topaz Wow, I haven't seen that for a long time... I have to admit that video once scared me away from the instrument/company :-) Here's another old video where the good sides of the Megatar are al...

The Stick is an idea machine... So true! Today I had put my Stick for rest in an armchair during a short break from a recording. I hadn't bothered turning down the volume pots, so when my son came in and threw a towel into the same armchair a loud swarm of wonderful IDEAS manifested in the air. We ...

By the way if you have a chance checkout the tone I dialed in for my cover of "Teen Town" . That's a lovely bass sound, man! And you are right; "tone" is definitely subjective (took that for understood). I didn't mean to come across as saying "a...

The Megatar was one that I looked closely at six years ago, when I was going to pick up two handed fretboard tapping. But after having talked to a lot of players, watched many YouTube videos and read a lot of forum posts I decided to hang on and save up a little more so I could go for a Stick - just...

Great question B-A! I totally approach the Stick as one instrument, but one with an exceptionally wide tonal range. The reason I got into Stick playing five years ago was that I wanted to play more solo concerts in a manner that harpists and piano players can do so well. Thinking about balancing you...

I've never broken a string during my current three years of outdoors playing every day for four months a year - and now and then in studio recordings for the rest of the year. BUT... many times string #7, the lowest and fattest one, has broken up at the tuning peg. When that happens I use to tie it ...

Not knowing how to come up with those sounds in my head I would have been on a very very very long road of finding that sound... but with the POD x3 Live... So true. I learned all that the long and tedious way making hundreds of mistakes, and bad purchases, during 40 years of electric guitar playin...

2) Any one have a good suggestion for a MIDI controller that would cost say under $200 that would fit into my luggage and travel easily with (I could check that and wouldn't HAVE to bring the controller as carry-on)? Anyone recommend a good small one that's pretty sturdy? I'm very happy with the Ab...

At the moment I'm focusing on composing and recording for about a dozen media production music library companies, both on exclusive and non-exclusive deals. Up until three years ago I was also a part-time journalist/editor in Scandinavia's leading guitar player magazine as well as a Studio magazine ...
