Searching With My Good Eye Kinda Closed

This tune from Soundgarden’s Badmotorfinger is one of my favorites so I thought I’d record my interpretation, up through the first chorus at least. It’s transposed down to play on a 7-string and the intro key is sort of rationalized with the rest of the song, partly for the mechanics of playing on a 7-string, and partly because it sounds more natural to me.

I love this solo, and a 7-string in drop tuning is perfect for noodling around on it.

San Francisco to LA in 5 Days (on a Bicycle)

I recently had a little adventure out in California, visiting my brother in San Francisco, then riding with him down to San Jose to see the Cirque du Soleil Volta show my sister works for. After that I headed off on my own down to LA. The video above has some footage from the ride, and ends with a rundown of the gear I took along.
