    Since the dawn of 2018 myself and some kick-ass players have been playing every Tuesday at Clancy’s Tavern in Neptune, NJ. The house rhythm section is made up of Cody McCorry and Joe Fadem – the tag team from fellow Vigier Guitars artist Tom Monda’s band Thank you Scientist. Tunes from my past and present as well as my TrueFire catalog are played, re-imagined and mangled into improvisational goodness (or so we hope). We always take the stage at 9pm and play one long set. Burger specials and good beers are on the menu. It’s a scene.

    I wanted a weekly gig where I can do my thing as well as experiment with different guitars and pedals. The latter has become quite an adventure. At the same time I worship at the alter of a good burger and have been a beer snob since college. This is the gig where I celebrate all that and more. It’s been AWESOME. So much so I have Steven Kelly recording the sets almost every week for an upcoming live release (more on later). It’s even served as a platform for a new trio project with two monster players. (more on that later).

    In the meantime…

    Not so fast 2017: The much anticipated follow-up to Guitar Gym Weekly Workouts: Vol. 1 is here!

    I give you not one, but two new volumes of Guitar Weekly Workouts. Between these two courses there are playing challenges that will cover bending, string skipping, voice leading, odd-time comping, hybrid picking, my very own “legato picking” and much more.

    Both courses along with the rest of my TrueFire catalog are available in my TrueFire Mini Store.
