    Music and mental health

    Avenged 100% got me through my high school days. I was on the cusp of 15 when COE came out, so that album specifically has special significance for me. I hated high school, like a lot of teens typically do, so I would blast them, The Used, My Chem, H.I.M. and a handful of others whenever I got...

    This is how I feel a lot of the time, too. To be honest the One String Challenge (with a sprinkle of @Jak Angelescu posting that "the riff section is a ghost town" meme 🤣) really helped me a lot - before that I didn't really feel like I had anything worth posting. And the past week or so I've...

    Y'ALL. I've been radio silent around here while makin' moves, the last few days. After 14 years at the same job, I'm putting in my two week notice on Monday so I can go work somewhere fun alongside one of my oldest friends! This is in no way related to guitar but I felt the need to say it here...

    2021 Guitar Goals: Where are you at?

    I THINK my goal was to get more familiar with the fretboard, and... I'm doing okay at that, I've finally progressed into the CAGED system area of the lessons, so that's helping me along. I think the other one was learning the Afterlife riff, which... that's absolutely nowhere close LOL. But...

    The One String Challenge, Day 6

    I freaking did it! I almost forgot, and I was about to get ready for bed but remembered I hadn't done the high E string yet. This isn't my favorite of the things I've played this week; the more I listen to it, the more it just sounds like a complicated 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star', but at the...

    EDWARD SCISSORHANDS by Danny Elfman

    I LOVE that you gave us so much Elfman work to revisit (or view/listen to for the very first time, for some!) My older sister introduced me to his stuff super early on in life, so I'm one of those people who grew up familiar with it, too. He's a master of his craft, to be sure. ❤

    G string time! This was fun and challenging particularly because I managed to do some continuous alternate picking. :)
