Guitar Oscillations

In: Fun Times

This is a cool recording of the string oscillations from inside a guitar. Will try this on Ro’s guitar sometime this week. I wonder if we can record a similar oscillation effect from a piano. There would be a lot more strings involved.

What’s your Beard

Sitting Kills

In: Fun Times

Searching for 2010

In: Fun Times

I decided to search Google Images for “2010″ and all I got was a listing of cars. Looks like cars were the hottest thing in 2010. Odd huh! Happy New Year to All!
