Sieze the Day Solo

I don’t usually play solos note for note, and this is not QUITE an exception, but it’s such a wonderful, tasty and emotive place that I had to put some of my...

  • With the word yesterday that troubled Cinderella guitarist Jeff LaBar passed away at 58, it seems a good time to point to their best album. While the debut, "Night Songs," was a hair metal album with blues-rock overtones, the follow-up and MUCH better album, "Long Cold Winter," is one hell of a blues-rock album with occasional hair-metal overtones. From the opening acoustic slide riffs of Bad Seamstress Blues, it's a different kind of album for the era, and as such it's held up a LOT better. Give it a listen and raise a glass for Jeff!
    I'll be gone for the next week. Wife & I - vaxxed & loaded - are going to Turks & Caicos for an anniversary trip. We're leaving the kids (1st time in 9 years & only the 3rd time in 21 years together). I won't have cell coverage, & I don't know how the Wifi will be, but aside from posting pics n stuff, I don't expect to be on my phone much. I'm excited for this, because it feels like MY first vacation as an adult - my fellow olds know that vacation means constantly being aware of how much $$ you have, what's worth doing, what you can't afford, etc. Well, we're going to Beaches, which is all-inclusive. I won't have to think about it, which is FUCKING GLORIOUS & why it feels like a vacation for ME TOO! Stay safe play hard & be awesome, you ragtag box of awesome motherfuckers! See you Sunday!
    Hey, what's your opinion on headless guitars? How's your experience with them?
    Been getting into the Idea of having one someday but any decent looking headless is expensive af
    I changed the name of my YouTube channel. "Cooking with Captain Ed" lacks punch and could be confusing. I took Jak's other part of her name for me and just changed the spelling of my last name, so it's "Captain Ed Scythe." Years ago, one of my bands actually wanted to call our band "Scythe" and have me use that spelling as a stage name. Decades later, eh, why the fuck not, right?
    I started doing physical therapy today, on my left arm shoulder, which has been problematic since January, and on my left knee, which has been problematic since before you were born, but got especially ornery when I tried to start running a month or so ago. I'll be good as used in eight weeks!
    The SECOND Bill Hudson Masterclass is in the books, and folks, this one was a fucking monster. Nearly three hours on the center of the music theory universe - the Major Scale. Bill connected a lot of dots for me about how theory really applies to the shapes and patterns long since burned into my memory but not really understood. His approach is genius, and I have a lot of study to do before the NEXT Masterclass down the road on beginning modes. Thanks again to the inimitable @Jak Angelescu for pulling it together and MCing. What a day!
    It's like they're not even trying. Just banned a spammer with the name "Cialis 5mg." REALLY, GUYS???
    I just watched @Aileé Guerra Aréizaga 's video on making videos. She shares a LOT of great info in there. Every time I watch one of her videos, though, I feel bad. She's always so meticulous - her hair, makeup, dress, lighting. Even her words are as if she's memorized a script. I look to make sure there isn't cheese dripping down my shirt and hit record. I have huge respect for the effort she puts in!
    Haven't watched it yet, but Johnny released a cover of Iron Maiden's Aces high with some friends today. Check it out.
    QUICK TIP if you play with those piss-yellow Ultex picks. Blacklight makes em glow bright if you can't find it on the carpet!

    Oh funny I just lost one of those. Guess I gotta see if i have a blacklight lying around :ROFLMAO:

    We have a blacklight flashlight because in Arizona this is how you find scorpions at night!

    Lol I was thinking about your status update last night. I dropped a pick and my floor ate it... but while looking for it I found my piss yellow Ultex pick! Now, any tips for finding a brown pick on hardwood floor/carpet?
    Left the blue Ibanez in today. It's the one I put the Syn pickups in. Lots of frets lifting out and there's a dip in the fretboard around the 15-18th frets. As a result, it needs a refret. The refret will cost as much as I paid for the guitar. Oh well, at least it will be BUTTAH when I get it back in a few weeks!

    @Ed Seith what's a better way of finding out if a shop does a good job refretting guitars than with a guitar that's the same price as a used car haha.

    @William Byerley Yeah it's definitely possible. I'm not sure to what extent you would want to mess with the string gauges but yeah it's definitely possible. During my second to last string change on my Schecter I accidentally broke the high e string which was a part of a 10-52 set. I didn't have another pack of 10-52's on hand and I didn't want to break into the three pack of 10-46's I had on hand. So I looked through my drawer that's got loose packs of strings from times before I learned about how to effectively change the strings on my guitar without locking tuners. I found a 9 gauge and threw that on. That worked like a charm for 7 weeks or so until it broke when I was down tuning it of all things haha.

    I've now had two hour-long deep-tissue massages to relieve the built up stress poisoning my body. Like Shrek, I've got layers like an onion. It will be one or two more sessions to work it all out (very sore and lots of swelling) but I feel better - a lot better - already. I had no idea I was in this bad of shape, stress-wise. It was noticeably impacting my playing and practice to.
    I have a serious knot in my shoulder (strap area) that's new, and one in my left bicep that's been around for months but getting worse. Definitely time for some deep tissue massage, and maybe a chiropractor. Call made. Waiting for appointment #GettingOldSucksButItBeatsTheAlternative

    Hit up Holly on Instagram! She worked in a chiropractor's office and is working towards her corrective exercise/therapy certificate! Until you go she can talk to you and figure out what you're doing and give you relief treatments and exercises🙂 she worked wonders on my shoulders!
    Ed Seith
    I may do that if the appointments are too far out. Thanks, Jak!
