12/29 - 2021 Wrapup
|Posted on December 29, 2021 at 4:00 AM||comments ()|
Hey everybody! Hope your holidays are going well. In typical fashion, I've been absent for a while, but that's about to change, and I'll tell you why in a sec. First note though, I made the biggest update to the My Gear page in a long time. I bought a new amp recently, and I'm also in the process of MASSIVELY overhauling my effects rig (the changes listed reflect what it will look like when it's done, but that shouldn't take too long, provided supply chain issues don't leave me waiting months...Read Full Post »
6/14 - Testing 1, 2, 3...

Oh hi there! I randomly noticed today that the template on the front page of the website broke, which led me to discover that Webs had updated to a new version of their SiteBuilder, which led me to discover that my website template was no longer compatible with it. Yikes! So, here's a slightly-new version of the site, everything's pretty much laid out the way it was before but I'll probably keep tweaking things here and there. Sorry if this page had been broken for a while without me noticing...Read Full Post »

6/15 - Two New Guitars!
|Posted on June 15, 2020 at 1:45 AM||comments ()|
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 ...Read Full Post »
4/2 - YouTube Updates/New Mike Guitars
|Posted on April 2, 2020 at 1:55 AM||comments ()|
More video content for you today, I re-uploaded Valentine's Day. The 3 main guitar parts use the same audio as my previous version, but I also discovered a fourth guitar part, an acoustic that plays a few notes at the end of the outro. To cover this part in a way that was actually interesting, I improvised some acoustic work over the rest of the song. Check it out (as well as the other 3 videos if you haven't seen me cover this song before)! I'd normally include a link here, but the YouTube e...Read Full Post »

Big update today, so wash your hands, stay at least 6 feet away, and check it out!
I haven't been uploading videos every weekend like I typically try to do, but I've still been uploading fairly frequently over the past couple weeks. I've posted new versions of the following videos:
-From the Inside (Guitar 2): Removed the muted strums before the first two choruses, otherwise same audio as previous version
-Shadow of the Day: Sa...Read Full Post »
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...Read Full Post »
2/25 - YouTube Updates
|Posted on February 25, 2020 at 3:20 AM||comments ()|
Forgot to post this yesterday, whoops. This week's a fairly boring one on YouTube, I had a couple more 1080p "quality upgrades" I needed to do for some Minutes to Midnight stuff, and they happened to be two of the easiest songs on the album (Hands Held High and In Between). I posted them both this past weekend.
With that said, I'm REALLY excited for what I'll be posting this coming weekend...
YouTube Cover of the Week (2/17): Somewhere I Belong/Tab Updates
|Posted on February 17, 2020 at 11:40 PM||comments ()|
It's always fun to record a song I haven't played in forever...the last time I did Somewhere I Belong was in early 2010, before I'd even moved out of my parents' house! Needless to say, this is quite an upgrade:

Baritone song number 2 of 3 here...the song that opened the first Linkin Park show I ever saw, all the way back in 2004!
Only one song from Meteora left!
