Album Cover Copycats, Cool Guitars and Funny Memes

Album cover Copyright Infringement

I have this really good friend in Belgium who was a radio DJ for many years. He also wrote as a journalist for European prog rock magazines. You should see his house: WALLS full of CDs, over 80,000 CDs. It’s unbelievable.

Not only that: he’s a HUGE prog rock fan, so most of the CD’s are by bands like Genesis, Gentle Giant, Max Webster, Lemur Voice, Yes, Kansas, Rush, King Crimson, Dream Theater, Spock’s Beard, Transatlantic, Focus, and thousands of more bands in that genre.

I LOVE hanging out with him because his knowledge is BEYOND encyclopedic. And prog rock is also one of my favorite music styles.
Anyhow: a couple of months ago he started posting rip-offs of album covers. Here’s a rip-off of a Clash album cover.

and the crazy similar rip-off

Here’s another one: the bassist in Megadeth, David Ellefson, has his own solo band. He’s ripped off a Def Leppard album cover

The original: Def Leppard’s “On Through The Night” album cover

and the remarkably similar looking rip off:

German Efficiency

I lived in Germany for a year in my late teens. I LOVED it.

I love the efficiency, punctuality, and reliability that are very much a part of the German mentality. You always know where you stand, no time gets wasted in silliness and you have more peace of mind knowing that everything will get taken care of in an efficient way.

Here’s an example:

Moving on to some music stuff: I LOVE this meme. It looks funny AND it holds a vast amount of compositional knowledge and music history in a small graphic.

On an entirely different note, this is how my city where I grew up looked like in the 30s

Cool Guitars

Futuristic Looking 7-String

A 30-Fret Ibanez

How I would love to play or own that guitar.

A Tree Guitar

All Metal Strat

I wonder how heavy this guitar is.

Apparently: Ibanez has other 30-fret models


Hit me up anytime at if you have any questions, or if you would like to book a lesson.

These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress, joy, and results that my students experience in lessons when you’re learning by yourself from blogs and videos.

That is why people take lessons: way better results and progress, much more complete information, exposed to way more creative ideas than you can get from a blog or YouTube video.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.

If you want to see amazing results and progress in your guitar playing, buy your first lesson here and get started ASAP.
