Shoreline

Here’s a WIP idea. I’ve been thinking about making a record of guitar music, and this is going on it.

Loops with Chloë

I got to hang out with my daughter Chloë in the Theoretical Audio Laboratory, and we made some loops. We really don’t do this often enough. Hope to change that! Love you, Chloë!

A quick one to show off the Excess V2 by Old Blood Noise Endeavors – I really like this pedal.

The Shillelagh

I went to my P.O. box this week, and was surprised to find a large box waiting for me from my college roommate and old friend, Brent.

I was speechless.

He made this guitar, a hobby he perfected up during the pandemic.

He walked me through the guitar – he knew I didn’t own a telecaster, so he started there. The neck, with its strat-like headstock, is nice and thick, like a ’58 Les Paul. It has Wolftone P90 pick-ups (mean and meaner). It’s obviously Green sparkle, a huge weakness of mine. The fret markers GLOW-IN-THE-DARK!!! It has an f-hole!

I am so touched by Brent’s thoughtfulness and generosity. The Shillelagh is a welcome addition to my little musical family, and I’m excited to see what we can make together.
