 Cool Tools: Seymour Duncan SFX-01 Pickup Booster (1207 reads)
MD News Going into a music store without knowing exactly what you are looking for, can be dangerous to your credit card balance... at least it's that way for me. None the less, occasionally I will indulge my gear lust and wander down to my favorite guitar shop just to see if anything strikes my fancy. A couple of months ago I had a moment of such weakness. On my way home one afternoon, I felt that old familiar tug. I found myself passing up my street and heading a little farther down the road to one of the most wonderful places on earth: DaPray/Maytas Guitar Gallery.

 Cool Tools: YourGuitarist Offers Musicians Internet-Based Custom Guitar Tracks (882 reads)
MD News founder Lou Lombardi conceived of the idea of Internet based guitar track development while working with a client with a busy schedule. Due to the client's performance demands, it was difficult to find a time to collaborate. Lou thought there had to be an easier way to work with the artist other than phone conferences and FedEx overnight CD's. Researching this problem led Lou to the Internet, where he worked with partners to develop a system that allows him to remotely collaborate with clients online. Clients can speak with Lou on the phone while also swapping guitar tracks online, leading to fast development of their high quality music.
