Soxys tech tip - don't own nut files?
Just need to lower those slots a little bit?
Easy - Take some old strings, cut a piece of each into a short length....around 20cm long.
Now, buy some 400 grit wet and dry paper from the hardware store. Wrap a piece AROUND THE STRING.
Holding the paper and the string you can now pull the string TIGHT at each end.
It will now cut like a very smooth file. Use each string for each slot. (So your A string goes in your A string…Continue

The world is always as we see every day, and will be as it is, as you choose to live it.
Performs all by itself, and not by what others say.
Today pollutes society, his positivism in your personality, will give the desired progress.
Fight for your dreams, believe in yourself.
Good morning everyone, God bless

Do you remember your first time working at a concert?? Mine was in 1973 @ MTSU in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. There was no call, just notes put up on campus that Elton John was coming to the Murphy Center and "strong young men" were needed for the set up and teardown of the event. You would be paid with a T-shirt and free admission to the show!! I had the time of my life and from then on I was hooked!! The rest is history!!

From the crazy times we had in Florida all the talk in our travel time was all about the Texas shows coming up. A few reasons for the hype is 1. Our merch, drummer and myself all live there. For the rest of the group it holds importance because of the market and radio hype the band gets. It's huge here! Largest support ever! The venues are not to shabby either. Starting in Dallas, tx at house of blues Cambridge room. A smaller room holding 350 with a smaller EV sound rig with an M7 out…Continue

After killing our show in Marietta, GA we venture now down into Florida for 3 shows. First stop Jacksonville. If one thing I've learned since I've been in the orange state, it's that it seems it takes a bit of professionalism to shine through before the locals start to warm up to you. The venue in Jacksonville started with a little bit of bus parking confusion. It turned out to be not so bad. A little place,easy to put people in. A Smaller PA with considerable power, but stage space being…Continue

We have managed to make it up and through mostl of the east coast so far. Yesterday ending in Syracuse, NY at one of the biggest festivals I've ever been apart of. Sharing the stage with a great line up. Korn, Awolnation, P.O.D. Let's recap some of the prior shows that I haven't been able to talk about. Let's catch up. I had left off headed into downtown Manhattan. Coming into this gig, we knew that the bus and trailer equaling a good 60ft would be extremely difficult in downtown NY. Taking…Continue
I apologize for the lateness. As much as I like to keep up to date with these blogs, I find myself falling a bit behind. Let's catch up a bit. We are 11 shows in to the tour now and I feel very confident that it is honed and sitting well with everyone. We have seen so far all different size venues, a bunch of great crowds, and good people to work with. The cities have been amazing. And i am really enjoying how nice each state is we have hit so far. It definatly been a nice change of scenery.…Continue

Although I am not sure about the title above I do know that I personally am trying some new tricks.
One of my new tricks consists of teaching the next generation the subtle art of stagecraft.
I have joined with 6 other brilliant technicians and we are working hard to fix a broken system. Story goes like this, there are these kids who spent their whole lives in foster care and the second they turn 18 they are kicked out without training, a job, a home,…Continue
