February 16, 2019

Like Cliff, it has been quite some time since I wrote a blog. Reasons are the same; an overwhelming amount of work, priorities 2.5 months to the concert sprinkled with a tiny bit of “procrastination” in the form of mindless television or going to the gym. I’ve gotten i...

It’s been a while since I’ve shared my thoughts to the world.  I haven’t been too focused on sharing - other than pictures and short videos on Instagram.  My full attention fell all on the guitar build.  It became more real for me back in November - when we had planned...

It’s been 3 weeks since my last post.  Christmas season, Luminous Voices Concert, Sinus Infection, Antibiotics…  No doubt there are reasons. Not that I’m complaining, but now our family is set to go on a 7 day vacation to the Bahamas!  I really need to make this the la...

Now that Amante Duo has played its last gig before the holidays, I had a chance to take the family to Cliff and Sally’s place to work on the guitar.  

Holy crap.  Cliff even let me do some light carving of the neck…  Friggin' scary! While I tried to keep it together and...

I just spend the last 2 weeks really honed in on Altra Volta.  It was our 20th anniversary concert and it simply required all of our focus in order for the show to live up to it’s expectations.  I initially looked at is as a huge set back in GuitarBorn because I essent...

This week, the long awaited guitar tuners I’ve ordered from Japan are finally here.  I’ve created a ritual of opening parcels in the shop. I made an unboxing video for Noel to share the experience of seeing these tuners for the first time.  The video is weirdly satisfy...

This past Saturday, I found myself staying up until 3:30am in the morning working on the Violetta Parra piece called “Gracias a la vida”.  The challenge with this piece is that I don’t have any sheet music for it, so I'm having to learn it by watching the YouTube video...

I think it’s human nature to procrastinate.  I don’t think it’s just me. But I remember in my university days, I always felt I got the best work and studying done when it was closer to the due date or exam date.  There is something about that feeling of urgency when yo...

October 27, 2018

I’m lead to believe that there are silver linings in all problems and challenges in life.  This week I had the opportunity of salvaging Noel’s guitar top. It could have been much worse.  I could have been replacing the entire top. Taking the time, glowing slow, thinkin...

October 20, 2018

As I was finishing sanding the body to move on to the next steps of fitting the neck to the body, I discovered I had sanded through a part of the rosette.  This has set me back, who knows how long. It could be a lengthy surgical replacement or rip the top off and start...
