More Than Just Guitars

More Than Just Guitars

Anyone who knows SAM knows we love our guitars. But since Stephen is an avid collector of more than just the classic six-string we all know so well, I thought it’d be fun to show off some of the less-well-known instruments we have around the studio.

Get To Movin’ – And Turn Up The Tunes!

Working out has always been one of my passions and favorite hobbies. Over the last few years, Crossfit has been my go-to workout. It’s challenging, tough, and I love that it’s a form of competition at the same time. And…there’s always music! Many studies show that music can actually enhance your workout. For example, it can be a good form of distraction. Have you ever been in the middle of […]

Open Your Ears – and Get Recharged with Music!

 We all remember them. The songs we heard in the summer when we were 15. The tunes we loved cruising to as we abused our Dad’s car. The tracks we put on our favorite mix tapes and CD’s in high school. Those were VERY impressionable times. I mean, our hormones were running wild! And that music we listened to as we “came of age” is forever emblazoned in our memories…and […]

If you get a chance to attend either event, you’ve got to check out our “Guitar Gods” and “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah” (Beatles) guitar displays – and be sure to drop your […]

Can I Borrow Your Favorite Guitar

“Can I borrow a couple of your favorite guitars for a few days?”

I remember back in the summer of 2011 getting a call from Texas photographer Chris Fritchie. “I have this idea,” began our phone conversation, “May I borrow a couple of your favorite guitars for a few days? . . . Trust me,” he said. Chris has a passion for music – especially guitars – and what he always loved about talking “guitars” with me was that it was never about […]
