Sway By The Rolling Stones. This guitar solo belongs to my personal favorites. It tells a great story and features many classic Mick Taylor and Rock and Roll lines.
In this video we will take a detailed, nerdy analytic look at Mick Taylor’s the guitar solo. Hopefully this will help you learn how to play it, but also understand the ideas so you can implement them into your own playing.
This solo belongs to my personal favorites. It tells a great story and features many classic Mick Taylor and classic Rock and Roll guitar-lines. The way it’s played combined with the sound of perhaps a true live recording gives it an intense and haunting atmosphere. I can somehow keep coming back to this era of the Stones any day of the week.
Summer time is here, and it’s time to get some projects out of the way. This video is about restoring my KEF Calinda’s towards an original look. These suffered from a make-over that wasn’t going to fit the interior.
Further missing T27 tweeters and thick and muffling curtain-material over the baffles. So yeah, not good, however like this, you’ll be able to get a great deal on a set of these and they have great sonic potential. Warm but a tight low end. Bright and clear but not harsh. Just detailed, balanced and punchy! KEF Calinda’s sound truly stellar when set up right.
I’m definitely no wood worker or anything but I like to these kind of projects every now and then to get myself dirty, learn stuff and make terrible noise.
They came out pretty good after stripping, sanding, smoothing, staining, oiling, remounting drivers and making new baffles.
The general process can apply to speakers, furniture and other wooden stuff so maybe this can be useful to others as well
In this video we go hack up The Fender Champion 600 and convert it’s stock circuitry into that of a 5F1 Tweed Champ. This modification is fairly easy to do with basic soldering skills and experience in working on electrical gear. It certainly is a dirt cheap way to get you to work with a tweed style amp without buying your tickets into the boutique club.
Warning! Working on electrical gear involves high voltages! Make sure you are qualified and experienced in doing this kind of work. If not, leave it to someone who is!
The sounds that The Fender Champion 600 amp can deliver in this configuration, even with it’s PCB design and otherwise stock components makes you wonder why no low-budget tweed version wasn’t available in the first place. Especially when we see we mainly need to cut parts out and simplify the thing. I do would like to state that the stock amp sounds good on it’s own and I might do a proper A-B comparison between both. Therefore keeping a stock one is also an idea, or make the tone stack mod switchable. But, I do imagine most recording and touring guitarists would go for the more desirable tone, harmonics and responsiveness of a tweed amp, no?
May this video please you!

When you’ve started out on guitar, learning all the new chords shapes and change them around quickly can be quite a struggle. In this video I’d like to share a method on chord practicing that I use when teaching guitar to beginning guitarists to help to learn guitar chords fast.
The principle of chord freezing will hopefully help beginning and advanced guitar players. Mainly, the purpose is to help making the early stages of learning chords easier, more fun, and help learning how to practice effectively.
LEARN GUITAR CHORDS FAST WITH A SIMPLE 3 STEP METHOD
The main thought behind this effective method of practicing and exercise is that we will try to be economic with the way we let our fingers get accustomed to a certain posture. We will try to get them ‘programmed’ to find the desired one in a natural way. Because by spending the first thankful moments in that particular position we eliminate the time when the fingers search their individual positions. This way we will be able to learn guitar chords fast while also improving the way we switch them around.
We’ll put a few basic chords in a simple exercise and practice the changes. There’s also a bonus exercise we’ll check out to help out our fingers some more when needed.
VISON ON PRACTISING
I’ll also share a vision on dedicated practising and how to achieve positive results. We do this without a 24h a day military drill schedule. Instead we use repetitive short, focussed practice sessions while journaling our practice efforts. As an example, one might start out with 10 minutes a day on a chosen concept. This effective method of practicing, can yield positive results with little time invested. The daily 10 minutes will add up to a weekly hour of focussed yet light hearted practicing. Hopefully that will help to overcome challenges with more ease than one would think!

Na jaren samen muziek te hebben gemaakt en heel veel te hebben beleefd, hebben we besloten te stoppen als band. Logistiek was het lastig en uiteindelijk waren er ook persoonlijke onenigheden.
We willen je heel graag bedanken voor alle steun en support die je al deze jaren hebt gegeven! En we hopen je graag nog eens terug te zien bij één van onze toekomstige optredens in andere bands, want we gaan ieder onze eigen weg voortzetten op muzikaal vlak:
