New guitar?

I'm really considering buying this guitar, what do you think?

Mini music review of the week. Kid Liberty - Fight With Your Fists.

This weeks mini review is of a band I never even knew existed, Kid Liberty. They came out with their debut album Fight With Your Fists august 2010.

These guys mix pop-punk with metal influenced riffs and hardcore breakdowns/vocals better than most.
They are far above average technically when compared to other bands in this "pop-core" genre, but very cheesy at times lyrically. The vocals reminds me of Four Year Strong, but they're not quite that good, yet.

The Winds of War is a good intro, but doesn't really fit on this album at all. The song Keep On Pushin' is a typical upbeat pop-punk song with cool riffing, but the vocals just doesn't cut it, nor does the lyrics.
The highlights of this album is definitely I'm right here, The Situation, I'm Not A Person Anymore... I'm A Turtle and That's what she said.


1. The Winds Of War
2. I'm Right Here
3. Keep On Pushin'
4. Telephone Toughguy
5. Fight With Your Fists
6. Coolguy Deluxe
7. The New Recipe
8. The Situation
9. I'm Not A Person Anymore... I'm A Turtle
10. Twelve More Days
11. That's What She Said
12. This Is A Stickup!

Overall this is a good pop-punk album, better than most, but not one of the best. Definitely check these guys out if you're a fan of Four Year Strong, A Day To Remember, Set Your Goals or Blink 182.

Fret daddy - a great tool for beginner guitarists.

As you all know, the NAMM show (National Association of Music Merchants) was held a couple of weeks back. This is one of the largest music product trade shows in the world.

One of the many interesting products this year was something called Fret Daddy.

This is basically just stickers that you put on your fretboard of your guitar. Whats interesting about this is that you can see every notes location on the fretboard. This will not only help beginner guitarists that are unfamiliar with the fretboard and the notes location, but intermediate players as well. Its not very cheap for a few pair of stickers (aprox. 10$), but its worth it! It is available for classical guitar, bass and electric guitar.

This will definitely be used by guitar teachers all over the place.


First post!
