There is nothing wrong with having only a cheap guitar…

There is nothing wrong with having only a cheap guitar…or an expensive one…or a really collectible very expensive one…there is nothing wrong with having beginner guitar or a pro quality one…or having only ONE guitar or a massive COLLECTION…and the same with amps as well… But there is a problem if you spend more time […]

Why originality is dead?

This is my conversation with a very talented young drummer who lives nearby and I asked him about his future plans in music. It just proves why originality is dead…why don’t we have tons of great, unique and original artists like in the 70s, 80s, 90s…here comes the shocking reality: “I am playing with a […]

With music we definitely are in the worst era ever…

With music we definitely are in the worst era ever…listen to those songs on the charts currently…absolute the lowest quality, cheap sounding shit…and all sounds exactly the same 🙂 exactly the same cheap electronic drum sounds.

I’ve had so many Gibson guitars in the last 5 years. From LPs to SGs and probably all the ES models. There were some really special ones, there were some “not-too-good” ones but hey it’s the same with every other mass made (approx 300-400 guitars a day) products. But there weren’t any which were completely […]

I’m sorry to say but POP music is getting worse and worse…nowadays it’s unlistenable for a musician…check this out: first of all there’s less and less live instruments and musicanship in it (well, […]
