Guitar Surgery

It’s guitar surgery day.
This is my Ibanez RG3120. It’s getting old, I got it back in 2002. The control knobs and output jack started making crackling sounds lately. (I think somebody lives in there, and scrambles eggs every time I plug in).
Luckily I have a $10 soldering gun which is not cooperating for obvious reasons, and this is probably the second time I ever used a soldering gun, so expect things to go very, very terribly.

Thank You

And to end the year on a high note, I’d like to specially thank you for your outstanding support and love. I have read the countless heartfelt, inspiring and motivational messages from a lot of you, and I am extremely thankful and lucky for being able to make music for you, and to have you as a fan and even more than a fan, a friend.
I hope the new year brings lots of exciting moments to you, full of sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll!
Cheers!

New Amp and Mic Test

Christmas came early again, and I’m already down to business dialing my new tone.

I’ve recorded a few clips with a few different mic placements, using the same setup for all clips.
