Top 10 Best Multi-Effects Pedals

Good afternoon!

I've had lots of inquiries lately from several students who have been interested in different effects for electric guitar. Today's blog features a resource I came across that has a lot of good info on some of the entry-level priced pedals if you are looking to expand your sound even for daily practice. I've owned and used many many pedals and processors over the years so if you need help selecting one or want my personal choices leave a comment or contact me!

Strum Pattern for the Beginner Guitar Player



Good afternoon! 

For those of you that don't know, I used to do a video series for the Guitar World Acoustic site titled Sunday Strum where each week I posted a video that highlights a new skill that guitar players can start to introduce to their every day practice time. 

Today I'm featuring the first video in that series that highlights some great tips for beginners to learn an easy strum pattern in 3/4 time! I take you step-by-step so that you can confidently add another skill to your guitar playing resume. 


The lessons get a little more complex as you go so be sure to take your time as you start to pick up each new skill!

Helpful Tips to Avoid a Trip to the Guitar Tech

There's nothing worse than having to take your guitar to get worked on. Thankfully, many of the issues that can potentially impact your guitar are actually completely preventable. Today's blog features a very useful article to save written by Matthew Stross of Reverb.

Stross mentions this in his article, and I completely agree that one of most important tips is controlling the humidity level - especially with acoustic instruments. The article does advertise various products, but my favorite way to regulate the humidity is the Boveda Starter Kit. Click HERE to check it out.

Moving News and New Video

Hey everyone, I have some exciting news to share.  29th Century Guitar is moving to a commercial studio in Sandy Spring, MD!  Tentative move-in date is July 1, 2015 and I'm so stoked to expand.  I will be offering the same intimate and customized approach to private lessons - just in a larger and cooler space.

This also gives me the opportunity to offer group lessons and classes, workshops, and the like.  I'll post some pictures as soon as I make the move and get settled in.

In the meantime, I thought I would shoot a couple new video lessons for anyone interested.  Below is a quick playthrough and lesson on the solo from "Say It Ain't So," by Weezer.  As always, you can find the tab for the solo and more, on the Songs and Resources page here.

More to come! Take it easy.
