Posted on January 1, 2021 at 12:00 AM Comments comments (3)

Hey everyone! I know I neglected the site for the second half of 2020, but if you follow me on Twitter/YouTube, you'll know that I've still been active lately. Let me start off by catching you up on everything I've done content-wise since my last update:

6/15 - Two New Guitars!

Posted on June 15, 2020 at 1:45 AM Comments comments (2)

It's been a bit since I posted anything, so how about a couple new guitars?


First of all, a band of deplorable people who think I'm a troll and currently have me blocked on Twitter (lol) posted a photo of Chester from sometime in the late 90's playing Bobby Benish's white Les Paul backstage. This is now the earliest known photo of Chester with a guitar!


Second, there's a new red Strat that I spotted in Phoenix's home studio in the recent Mercedes AMG "Home ...

3/10 - New Remix/New Mike Guitar/Tabs Update

Lots of stuff to cover today! First of all, for anyone who didn't already see it, I premiered a special video on my YouTube channel the other day, my long-discussed remix of Cure for the Itch!

I'm really happy with how this came out, I programmed the drums for it close to a year a...

9/27: Tabs Update

Posted on September 27, 2018 at 12:35 AM Comments comments (1)

Quick update today, I've spent the past week or so knocking out tabs for the Mall soundtrack, which I just wrapped up earlier tonight. All of those songs are now posted on the Tabs page! Up next, I'll finally be finishing up the remaining 3 songs from High Rise (Same on the Inside, Cry Cry, and Tomorrow), although those will certainly be a challenge considering none of them were ever played live!


In terms of videos...eh, I guess I'll get back to doing them at some point, but...

7/25: Recent YouTube Videos/Tab Updates/Site Update

Posted on July 25, 2018 at 4:05 AM Comments comments (1)

In news that should surprise NO ONE at this point...I've been bad at keeping things up to date lately! First of all, I've covered a couple more songs on YouTube that I've failed to mention up to this point. First up is Given Up (check out the bridge on Guitar 1 in particular - I'm pretty sure I nailed that bent pinch harmonic/octave combination better than anybody else has ever done it up to this point!):

Youtube Cover of the Week (6/18): In the End + Bonus Video!

Posted on June 19, 2018 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Another week, another touch-up job on an old Hybrid Theory song. For In the End, I re-recorded both parts. The first part (the harmonics) was technically "right" before, but I always felt like it was kind of sloppy by my standards. I think this is a much better take:

4/29: Tab Updates/Misc.

Posted on April 29, 2018 at 4:05 AM Comments comments (0)

The day has finally come - I've added guitar information to all tabs for The Hunting Party, meaning I now have this information accounted for in all of my tabs for studio releases! This has admittedly taken far longer than it should have, but it's allowed me to give another listen to every song I've done a tab for, and in many cases (far more than I expected!) make changes that may not have otherwise been made. The Hunting Party was no exception, as 7 of the 12 songs saw significant changes:

Youtube Cover(s) of the Week (3/26): Until It Breaks + Invisible/Other Updates

Posted on March 28, 2018 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Hey guys, sorry I'm falling a little behind here, I've been fighting flu-like symptoms for about three weeks now, and it's really slowed down my recording output. I posted two videos in the past few days to make up for it. First up is Until It Breaks, which features a re-recorded guitar track and remastered vocals:

Youtube Cover of the Week (3/12): Session/Remix Post Traumatic Contest

Posted on March 14, 2018 at 12:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Sorry for the late update this week, I've had the flu for a few days, and I've been busy with other projects with strict deadlines (more on that in a minute). Anyway, this week's cover is a partial re-recording of Session, I kept all of my improvised guitar work from the previous version but re-recorded the "real" guitar part at the end of the song because I thought the tone on the original version was pretty bad. Here's the new-and-hopefully-improved version:

Youtube Update: Isolated Tracks

Posted on February 13, 2018 at 10:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I just wanted to address something regarding my Youtube channel moving forward: Since WMG has, by most accounts, been a bit more relaxed about copyright blocks lately, I'm going to be re-uploading videos I had previously uploaded as isolated tracks, with the music mixed in like I would typically do. I will still record two versions of each video and use the isolated version to avoid copyright blocks when necessary, but will otherwise not be posting isolated videos anymore. HOWEVER, I will be ...
