The 70's Superstrat Prototype

So, about a month ago I wrote a post about the ‘Superstrat’ and its origins in the 70’s. My aim was to replicate that , but to see if I could iron out some of the problems that often occurred with the tuning, especially when the trem was abused fairly heavily by the likes of Van Halen! 1,340 more words

Writing Challenge

I went to bed too late and got up too soon...

It turned out to be a long post last night, which was unexpected. As I’ve said before: everything is a first draft.

However, I also have to drag my ass out of bed at 5am tomorrow because we have two events simultaneously kicking off at 7:30am… God, why?… That will mean I need to have everything ready by that time, and also look dressed and conscious and happy to be there. 152 more words
