I've got a few things to announce today! First of all, while I'm not calling it a "Youtube cover of the week," per se, I did upload an updated cover of Lies Greed Misery over the weekend. I redid this one to fix some editing issues with my first attempt, plus I added my favorite compressor plugin in the effects chain. This was a quick one since I was busy all weekend...recording something more substantial for this weekend!
Second, some guitar updates:
-I thought Brad was carrying 3 Strats in each rig on this tour, but he's actually only carrying 2 - the Strat he has in standard tuning for One More Light/Talking to Myself also serves as his backup guitar, as evidenced by him using his Rory Gallagher Strat on some Drop D-tuned songs on the current European tour, even though they're using the A rig for this tour and he's also been seen using his pink Strat.
-As a result of the above information, I've realized that the purple Time Machine Strat and sunburst Road Worn Strat have actually not been brought back into active duty, like I previously thought. I've updated entries on those guitars to reflect this.
-Also, since Brad's using the Inca Silver Strat as his backup in the C rig, that means he's actually only using 2 of the Rory Gallagher Strats now, strangely enough.
-Brad also has a new Martin acoustic/electric that he's using for performances of Sharp Edges, but I haven't found a particularly good photo of it yet - I'll add it to the site as soon as I do!
-As I predicted, Chester did end up adding that plum-colored D'Angelico Deluxe DC to his arsenal, it's his A rig guitar now (the red Premier DC is now exclusively in the C rig).
Lastly, a rare personal announcement...while many of you have probably seen this on my various social media accounts already, I'm excited to say that my wife (who I met on the LPU) is 10 weeks pregnant with our first child! Mike Shinoda even gave us a little shout-out on Twitter earlier, which immediately blew my phone up with push notifications, haha.
