Pigtronix Infinity Looper Review

I’ve been using the Pigtronix Infinity Looper for a couple of months now. I like to get to know gear before I review it. With digital pedals, this can sometimes be a frustrating endeavor. You have to learn the language of the pedal. Often, the menus don’t feel like they were created by a musician. […]

10 Questions To Ask When Learning A Song

Learning songs is a deceptive skill. Once we start to have some familiarity with a composition, we start to believe we know it better then we really do. Often when we need to recall a tune, we end up with some missing spaces. Have you ever noticed that you can remember every lyric to some songs […]

Creation Audio Grizzly Bass Review

Creation audio have released a really interesting new overdrive pedal designed for bass that has some unexpected uses. The adjustments on the pedal are quite simple and very effective (get it?). I like that there are two knobs for gain. One is for overdrive and the other is for distortion. You can use them independently […]

Strymon El Capistan Delay Review

I’m a big fan of tape echo. I own a Fulltone Tube Tape Echo and it’s one of my favorite pieces of gear. Tape echo is a magical thing. Those that have spent time with them begin to think of them as part of the instrument rather then just an effect. They’re very musical. Here […]

Pedaltrain JR Review

Session Guitarist -Gig Bag Organization

Pappa’s Got a Brand New Bag What is in your gig bag? Recently I acquired a new gig bag from Mono for my roaming NYC session guitarist lifestyle. Upon this new purchase, I decided it was time to re-assess what was “bag worthy”. When I first got the Mono Vertigo bag, I was concerned that […]

Creating a Master Song List

Remembering all the songs in your song library can be difficult. Not to mention the key signatures and tempos. To deal with this, I like to create a Master Song List. This list will have all the pertinent information to help you recall or choose songs. There are many ways you can create such a […]

Guitar Gear Behind the Live Set: Neil Davis

I’m prepping for a live record taping with artist Neil Davis which will be recorded at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 on March 26th at 7:30 pm. I’ll be choosing guitars, pedals and amps based on the style of Neil’s music. What I use changes from gig to gig based on the material. Neil’s music could […]
