B.G - Eric Clapton

Who doesn't know about this man...
He's one hell of a guitar player & singer/songwriter and he is the only person who's been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame THREE times.

Happy birthday Eric Clapton!
"Layla" is one of his best songs, in my opinion.
And I really like the riff!

Artist of the Month 2

They only get fewer & fewer.

As a one man band, Nomy has released 4 albums, never played live and still become so big.
He should be an inspiration to all solo artists out there... He certainly is to me  \m/,

"Bring Your Guns"
"If You Can Hear This"

The Sound Engineer's Apprentice - Week 1

Didn't do that much this day. Mostly followed around to see what and how he was doing things. Helped to solder some XLR-cables etc.

Driving around doing some business before heading back to the firm. Spent most of the day grinding off rust of a dolly.

A very "lazy" day. Visited another sound engineer and spent most of the day drinking coffee and talking. When we returned to the firm we finished grinding off rust and then started painting the dolly black.

Didn't start until 16 o'clock today. Prepared a small scene for the after party gig on Saturday. Put together light & sound equipment and making sure everything was in order before leaving.

The day of the gig and we didn't start until around 16 o'clock today either. Just finish things up before the band showed up and it was time for sound check. We were done by around 19:30 and after that we had a break until 22 when it was time for the after party. They had their own sound engineer so it wasn't much for us to do except be there if anything would happen.
Around 23 o'clock it was time for us to start tear the scene and all the equipment down.
We were done around 3 am so it took us about 3 h (changed to summer time).

Supreme Change

Well, after almost a month I went down to the shop and asked what's happening with my mic and the answer I got was; it can't be fixed and we can't find a replacement.
Bummer, right?
But instead they gave me a little more expensive mic as compensation for the trouble.

Don't know which one is better since I never got the chance to try out the TU-97 but I got this ADK Generis GT-2 (almost $600 new in Sweden) for the price of $235 (the price I bought the TU-97 for) so I can't really complain.

B.G - Marnie Stern

She plays a really different kind of music which I think sounds interesting.
But she is most known for her guitar tapping skill and I myself would like to call her a tapping queen.

Happy birthday Marnie Stern!
I really like the intro in this song

Song of the Week 6

To Be Loved by Papa Roach. One of their best songs according to me.

Kicking as through the whole fucking song  \m/,

Song of the Week 5

Almost forgot it this week... and it's NOT GOOD TO FORGET!
But here it is;
Knives and Pens by Black Veil Brides  \m/,

I know, it's the first heavier tune for Song of the Week 
and I humbly apologies for that.

Song of the Week 4

This week's tune is a song by the rap group Hollywood Undead.

They've made a lot of great songs but I must say that Everywhere I Go is definitely one of my favorites.
I specially like the melody of the intro and chorus.
