Lately this has all been a pain in the neck…no seriously, I've been getting this shooting pain at the back of my neck.  Initially, I really thought nothing of it.  I’m a pretty active guy, playing tennis and working out regularly, but I usually don’t get this kind of p...

What a rush!  Our voting week for Telus STORYHIVE’s Documentary Series is behind us, and what an amazing experience.  I’ve never felt so close to the project and felt so much responsibility to give this project everything I can.  The amount of support and love we’ve re...

Life comes with challenges, and with each challenge, comes opportunity.  Even though I’m stressed at work trying to get everything done all at once, I need to step back and do one thing at a time. And for that one thing, do it well. This also means that there are some...

I’ll begin to say that I haven’t been keeping up with the blog as much as I have in the recent past.  A lot is going on, but I don't want to make excuses.  I don’t know who is following my blog and I have no idea who cares to know my thoughts, but for those who are fol...

Let’s see what happened this week.  I worked on the guitar: bound it; broke the gold mother of pearl purfling and glued into place; sanding and scraping the guitar ready for finish. The body is ready and now we embark on the neck. The first thing is to make a new neck...

I was super excited about a new technique I learned while struggling through the Albeniz last week.  There is this one section that requires extended bar chord positions in my left hand that I’ve ALWAYS struggled with.  It involves pressing down all of the strings at o...

I miss playing full pieces from beginning to end.  After weeks of learning notes, breaking up pieces into manageable parts, drilling then repeating over and over, I really miss the feeling of musicality when you aren’t learning notes any more, and I can just close my e...

I’ve been using my phone to “selfie-record” myself playing.  The aim is to give our followers a taste of some of the music I’m learning.   I’m also hoping that months from now, I’ll be able to see the progress and show that all this work is paying off.  It’s funny thou...

 It’s been slow week on the guitar build.  I don’t have all the tools necessary to complete binding the guitar.  Made the order last week and was hoping that it came this week.  In any case, the day job has taken the week over anyway, so even if it came I wouldn’t have...

 I closed the guitar body this week.   While filming, Jonard asked, “what does this step mean to you, how does it make you feel?  I straight up told him that it made me sad.  I literally strive to make each guitar brace a work of art. Cleaning the glue, chiseling each...
