My Trip To So Cal Visiting My Brother

I recently when I a great road trip from Washington to Southern California recently to visit my brother who lives down there. Let me tell you, it was so great! Took a little time off of work, brought the pup in the car with me, grabbed my camera and guitar, threw some clothes in my suitcase and headed out the door.

I had a general idea of what route I wanted to take. I know it takes a little bit longer, but I wanted to stay as close to the coast as possible. The drive is so much nicer that way. Taking the 5 sucks. And this trip wasn’t about speed it was about taking a break, getting out of town, documenting my adventure through photos and most of all hanging with my brother who I definitely don’t see enough of.

Alright I’m Gonna Skip To The Coolest Part Of The Trip

The afternoon I arrived it was my birthday. Now, my brother and I had chatted about a week before when I was traveling through Oregon and Northern California, and he mentioned doing something for my birthday. I was like yea, that’s cool, let’s hit up one of your local bars and bring some of your buddies out.

Well, I get to his place around 2pm and I need to take a nap because I was so unbelievably tired! Thank goodness I went to catch some z’s because what my brother had planned for us that night; I need all the energy I could muster.

Our VIP Night On The Town

I had no idea my brother had a super epic night planned. When I woke up from my nap at like 6pm he told I need to shower, shave and throw on my nicest shirt and pair of slacks. I was a little confused, he said he had the whole night planned and that he was going to make sure to make this my best birthday yet.

I wanted to know what we were going to do but my brother wouldn’t spill the beans. It looked like I could just sit back, relax and enjoy my birthday!

At about 7pm a super stretch limo pulls up in front of my brothers pad. He said he had a hook up on limo service from a college fraternity buddy. God bless his soul.

The whole gang hopped in the limo and we were on our way to dinner. This is about the time I slowly start to forget the night. haha.

The Dude Who Made Me Want To Kill My Guitar

There was never really a guitarist I idolized until I got to high school and came across the band The Icarus Line. Someone at my school was the sister of one of the guys in the band. Anyways, a group of us go to see this band since this girl can get us tickets. And it was totally sweet! I mean it was all rock and roll. It was dirty, it was raw, it was loud, it was crunchy. It had swagger.

And this guitarist, this dude, Aaron North, just killed it on the guitar. He played so violently and strung together fistful smashes of downstrokes onto his guitar body that one could think he was trying to give his guitar chest compressions.

Why I Think Buckethead Is The Raddest Guitarist Ever

Buckethead is one of my favorite guitarists ever because he can shred but he can also play just really beautiful music as well. The guy is a music making machine. He’s come out with more than a hundred albums just by himself and he’s been on a ton of other albums for various other projects with other musicians ranging from metal to funk, jazz, ambient and blues. The guy knows his stuff and doesn’t deal with just one genre like many people mistakenly think.

His Signature Look

I originally was so into him just because he looked so crazy with his costume on stage. He’s known for a wearing a KFC bucket on his head, a stark white mask and like a yellow rain coat. Actually, throughout high school, each Halloween this was my costume. It was great, people loved it! They didn’t know exactly who or what I was, but I was easily one of the creepiest people on campus.

What Is Guitar Warfare

Welcome to my blog. Click here to see what it’s about and who I am.

One of my first ideas for Guitar Warfare was to match famous and popular guitarists against each other and critique their playing styles, their performance and songwriting abilities.

I’d be discussing different guitarists from a wide variety of genres and a little about the bands that they are in. I also wanted to write about different guitarists, their playing styles and their gear. There’d be this whole voting aspect to the website and if you wanted to nominate a guitar player to be interviewed, or have an article written about them, you could send us your vote at Guitarist Request.

But that idea isn’t what this site will be about entirely.

This site is more of a personal blog of mine where I will be expressing my thoughts about certain things, experiences and musings. You can read more on my official about page.
