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.

Jacob Petersen and RedPlate Amps

March 22, 2009 at 3:33 am (Guitar Stuff, Music) (, , , , , )

Cool vids of Jacob Petersen showcasing RedPlate Amps. RedPlate are boutique amps but not an overwhelming boutique price tag, like Dumble. Current prices (at the time of writing) start at around $1500. But watch this video. Jacob Petersen is really, really good.

I found these vids at this blog post – Strat-O-Blogger goes into a bit more detail about the gear that’s being used.

Spring Clean Those Fender Guitars

March 19, 2009 at 6:48 am (Fender, Guitar Stuff) (, , )

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.
