Tips, Techniques, Examples about my favorite musical instrument, the Twelve-String Guitar.

If you play guitar check out Playing Technique, or Strings / Setup. There are also some interesting posts about guitars at, you guessed it, Guitars.

If you want to spread your musical talents around, you will find some good info at Recording.

Marketing - meh - I'm probably the world's best bad example. Although you could find funny stuff there.

I've made some music videos through the years, and you can find them and other interesting music at Music I Like, Music I Play.

New Internet Connection

The S.O. and I decided to upgrade our connection to teh Internets, so we ordered some giant T3 tubes. Like everything in life, there is both good and bad in the new high speed connections.

Uploading and downloading is just incredibly fast. You can pirate music that won't be released until next year. And you can probably download more pørn than actually exists on the internets!

The tubes, shown here, go from the street into the attic:

This firewall protects against nasty viruses. The filters are based on a viratic-gravity algorithm.

On the other hand, this laptop connection might seem a little unwieldy, but the increase in speed is worth it:

And best of all, I can record my 12-string directly into the tubes using this Martin soundhole fiber optic connection:
