O HAI. Finally getting back into a semi-normal routine...between my dad passing away in August, moving and starting college in September, not having Internet for about a month, and just generally having too much other stuff going on, it's been a while since I had time to post anything! I have several things to mention in this post, so bear with me...
First of all, this week's cover is Figure.09. Pretty standard Meteora-era guitar work, with the exception of the tapped harmonic line that appears in two spots.
Second, while I normally don't do cross-posts from my non-Linkin Park Youtube channel here, I did want to mention that I recently recorded a full cover of Ace of Spades as a tribute to the two members of Motorhead who have passed away recently (Lemmy Kilmister and Phil Taylor), as well as my dad, since we used to play this song together all the time. I'm planning on using my second channel more frequently in the future too, so I'm also kind of reminding everyone that it exists!
Third, I've updated the site a bit. I added one new guitar each to Brad and Chester's sections, updated some info in Chester's section, and updated the About/Contact page a little. I'm also finally updating the My Gear page, I added detailed entries for all of my guitars, although I haven't uploaded pictures yet. The rest of my gear is still listed the way it was previously...it's going to take me a while to finish that section, but it'll look a lot better when it's done.
Since I've been so busy and updating infrequently, I'll be straightforward about my future plans: My next two covers are going to be Pushing Me Away and Shadow of the Day. I THINK I'll be able to get them uploaded the next two weekends (1/8 and 1/15), but I start school again on the 11th, so we'll see what happens. After that, I don't expect that I'll be able to keep up a weekly upload schedule, but I'll keep posting videos as often as possible. There are a handful of videos that I may go back and re-record for a variety of reasons (thankfully, my recent videos have usually been good enough that I don't see myself ever needing to redo them, but there are a few exceptions). I'm also working on some significant tab updates.
*Edit* Also, I have NO IDEA why it says this blog entry was posted 12 hours in the future...it's 12:45 PM on January 4th here. I'm no Marty McFly, trust me.
Hope everybody's having a good new year so far!
