Thorium Cars

I know it seems odd that I would post following on my blog here.
After all: this doesn’t have anything to do with guitar.

However: we guitar players oftentimes tend to gravitate over time to getting more and more into the science of things, and into design and so on.
That is why I figured you might be interested in this interesting topic: a car that runs on Thorium.

The only reason for me posting this on my guitar blog, is that I got so fascinated by this, I couldn’t help but wanting to share it here.

Neck Illusions

I’m not sure if Jennifer came up with this idea, or just endorses it, but I found out about this through Jennifer Batten.
Jennifer is an unbelievable guitarist.
I am lucky to have seen her live 3-4 times.

Chances are, if you like Michael Jackson, that you have seen Jennifer too, since she was MJ’s guitarist for many years.

Anyhow: following is a really cool idea to easily customize your guitar neck.

Hit me up anytime at [email protected] 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 and results that my students experience in lessons, learning 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.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.

Keep me informed on your progress. You can hit me up in the comments section below.
If you like this blog: give it a rating and feel free to give me any feedback.
I believe everything can always improve. I’d gladly implement your suggestions and ideas.

Be on the look out for more blogs about guitar, music, songwriting and music education.
You’re on your way to becoming a great guitar player.
Have fun! 🙂
