Hey guys! Sneaking in another update before the end of the year here. I've added one new guitar to the Misc. Guitars page (a red Telecaster that Matt Harris has been playing on Mike's solo tour), two new guitars to Mike's page (a Fender Bass VI he was seen with in the studio recently, and a Squier Strat that he did custom artwork on for a charity auction), and added new photos/updated information for two more guitars on Mike's page (his late '60s white Strat reissue and the Dragon series Takamine acoustic guitars, both of which have seen more use on recent solo tour shows). I also updated information for Mike's jumbo Takamine acoustic guitar on Chester's page, as I mistakenly had that photo dated as 2010, when it's actually from 2013.
In tabs news, I've also finished the remaining songs from the Stone Temple Pilots - High Rise EP! These were quite challenging, but they contain some very fun guitar work. My next tabbing project will more than likely be the LPU 14 through 16 songs, although I'm considering taking another crack at figuring out the Xero demo (it's been a thorn in my side for almost 15 years - the recording quality makes the guitar very difficult to make out in spots).
Recording-wise, I'm still in a holding pattern because I'm roughly 90% done with putting together my finalized pedalboard that I'll be using in the future. It's so close to done that I don't want to wire it all up in its present state just to have to take it apart again in the near future when I finally acquire the last couple pieces I plan to add to it. I DO have one video planned soon that involves acoustic guitar only (I'm sure you can figure out what song that is pretty easily), but other than that it might be a while longer before you see me posting regularly again. In better news, YouTube seems to have finally fixed their issues with people being unable to deal with copyright disputes, so I'm a little more encouraged to continue recording in the future.
Hope you're all doing well.
