Anyone for Air-Guitar? Nah? I didn’t think so. But what if I told you that you can play air-guitar and actually ‘produce’ sounds with it? Confusing, right? So, over the past couple of days, I’ve been reading a lot about the so called Kurv Guitar. Which is according to its inventors, a stringless digital guitar that allows anyone to learn and songs using motion, touch and gestures. Still don’t know what I’m talking about? No worries, I too didn’t get it at first.
Looking for a new guitar to add to your collection? Well, I’m a massive Gibson SG fan, as most of you probably know. So, I’m always looking for good opportunities to pick-up another one. But, there are limits. Budget being one of them. So, I guess the $2m Gibson SG that’s currently on display at the Jewellery Arabia 2015 exhibition might be slightly out of reach for me. But perhaps you are interested?
It’s been quite a while since Jimmy Page released his last solo album. I’m not one for keeping track of dates, but if my memory serves me correctly, his most recent record, “Outrider”, was back in 1988. So, good news for all Page fans – in 2016, according to him, he will be focusing on “working on the guitar”. He feels that it’s about time to get going again, now that everything is wrapped-up regarding his efforts on Led Zeppelin’s Re-Issue series.
Wow, this is painful. Well, not for Mr. Justin Bieber, but for all Beatles fans. About 50 years ago, the Fab-Four rules the world of Rock ‘n’ Roll – we might just say, the world of Music, in general, give their omnipresence. Also, the Beatles phenomenon withstood the test of time and likely will for the foreseeable future. However, strictly from a commercial recognition perspective, there is a new Sheriff in town. His name is Justin Bieber. He just broke the Beatles’ record with having 17 songs on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart-list.
Yep, even Eddie Van Halen is a fan-boy, just like you and me. In a recent interview, Mr. EVH shared his personal guitar riff favorites. And he shared some other insights, including his real thoughts about his band mates. I’m not interested in that part, honestly. Too much drama. But Eddie Van Halen picking his favorite guitar riffs of all time, that’s certainly worth looking at a little closer.
Good news for Tom Petty fans! Well, that is if you have an active Siriux XM subscription. The radio station just announced that Petty will be getting his own channel, starting to air this weekend, November 20. Tune to channel 31 and listen to Tom DJ-ing the first show titled “Tom Petty Radio”.
These are the headlines I woke up to: “Kirk Hammet Confirms Metallica Considering Firing Lars Ulrich”. Oh Lord. Well, I guess that’s the liberty you have as a writer. Using ‘present-tense’ where ‘past-tense’ would have been more accurate, or at least, less misleading to the reader.
