My cover of the guitar solo from "Don't Cry" by Guns n' Roses, it's one of Slash's easier solos but has really great emotion and is an awesome intermediate solo to learn!

How To Build Homemade PVC and CPVC Flutes

PVC Flutes

My three custom PVC flutes so far - from left to right: 1/2" CPVC, 3/4" CPVC, 3/4" PVC

          Since taking up the Celtic Tin Whistle, I found another outlet for this type of musical instrument; building your own custom flutes from PVC.  Now I love everything DIY, so I took the project and ran with it, and within two days I had made the three flutes above.

          Pics, reviews, instructions, and more after the break!

Clarke vs Waltons Tin Whistle in D Demo and Review

Quick demo of both the Clarke and Waltons tin whistles in the key of D

Setup: I ran the microphone straight through a mic interface and into Audacity; no post-processing or effects were added except for a very slight delay effect by leaving a fraction of the volume of the computer's recording audio blended with the mic output. [Edit: on certain songs (Yankee Doodle in particular) the exported video amplified the delay quite a bit more than showed up in the pre-processing stage, whoops!]

The Clarke Celtic Tin Whistle is possibly the most popular tin whistle on the market, and is available for as low as $10.  It's rather lightweight and doesn't feel like the strongest construction, but is finished very nicely and looks and sounds excellent.

Douglas Hadron 727 Floyd Rose Demo and Review

My quick little demo and noodling around on the Douglas Hadron 727 guitar from Rondo Music.

Review summary:

- Build Quality -
The construction of this guitar is outstanding for the price; it's a neck-through build and it's incredibly solid and quite well-made, I think it's very difficult if not impossible to beat for around $200.

A Space Oddity Tribute to David Bowie

My tribute to one of the greats we have recently lost as of 1/10/2016.

(Excuse my singing, I know it's not great, and it's even harder singing quietly in a college dorm room without disturbing the neighbors)
