Prince Live on Jay Leno Throwing Down on a Fender Stratocaster

While I’m not Prince’s biggest fan, I sure do admire his current marketing efforts for his latest offerings. And I was surprised to see him on Leno playing… a Fender Stratocaster. That’s right, no purple monster… just a Fender Strat. Check out the video. Be sure to hit the HQ button.

John Mayer Rippin a Fender Strat

April 4, 2009 at 5:54 am (Awesome Artists, Fender, Music) (, , )

I’m an absolute huge fan of John Mayer for a number of reasons. Sure, many of his songs are pop melodies designed to sell records. But for every song that’s meant to sell he’s got a handful that’s meant to move. I love it that he performs without any thought of how his performance is perceived… he plays just to play. At least that’s how it appears… maybe it’s all show business, but being a musician, I can pretty much guarantee it’s not.

Here’s John Mayer playing Belief, a really cool song off Continuum. This is from Crossroads Guitar Festival 2007. Love the solo – you can literally feel it.

Here’s another video of Belief with an interview. Pretty cool.

Sweet Vintage Fender Amp: ’64 Fender Princeton Reverb

April 4, 2009 at 4:56 am (Fender, Great Gear, Guitar Stuff) (, , , , , )

So I’m kind of a vintage guitar lover… I’m no expert, that’s for sure, but there’s something cool about seeing and hearing old guitars. I came across this video of a ’64 SG thru a ’64 Fender Princeton Reverb and wow… what a tone. Needless to say, I was impressed. I’m a Strat lover, but that SG sounds great! Cheers!

Spring Clean Those Fender Guitars

Found this handy blog post about Spring Cleaning for your guitars. Is it Spring yet? Anyway, just wanted to share it with everyone. Some of it’s pretty basic knowledge, but it kinda kicked me in the butt to get to cleaning my gear… sometimes I fall behind.
