My experience with sight reading

Hadn’t been blogging as frequent as I’d like to because I lack ideas! Asked for suggestions on my personal Facebook and a friend messaged and asked to write on improving sight reading. Not that I’m a good sight reader but I thought it’d be cool...

A little pedal saved the gig

I don’t have a pedal board because the thought of having to bring more stuff doesn’t appeal to me. I use 3 pedals: an MI Effects Tube Zone as my main drive, an MI Effects Crossover Drive as my boost and a Zoom MS-50G for my delays and reverb. Everything is...

Grasp of a musical language
