You can’t go wonrg with Incubus, these guys are super talented. They are the American high school rock dream. Starting up when they were all like 15 in highschool, they’ve been a hit since their first album, Fungus Amoungus back in ’95, which is a super CD if you haven’t heard it and you like Incubus. “Check it out here! Fungus Amoungus“. Otherwise, enjoy the sweet sounds of Incubus.

This album is a throwback from the mid 90’s. It’s nothing like the usual grunge and alternative that was around. For a bunch of high school kids using their own label, this is a well produced bunch of tunes. A mix of funk and smooth rock, there’s some badass tunes that really work.
This video is the full concert that the Deftones did at Lollapalooza back in 2011. It’s a pretty good concert, the sound guy does have his bass mix off tho, you can tell around 20 mins into it when Carp’ starts cussin’ out the sound guy in the lyrics of the song then slams his mic. The second one is a concert of theirs from 2009 that is alot better audio quality and more of the older tunes to it.
I downloaded the audio track to this using a free Firefox plugin called, “Easy Youtube Video Downloader 6.7”, you might not be able to find it still but there’s a ton others out there but I like it ’cause it’s easy and it gives you a bunch of different options to download as which is great for downloading different video and audio types for my different devices. I’m not plugging them or shit like that, but definitely a great app, I’ll download a ton of live concerts for when I’m driving back and forth to work. All the hits and they are always just a slightly bit off cause it’s live.

The 2009 concert is one of my favs, nothing better then sitting in back to back traffic blaring this so loud that I can almost hear my speakers start to distort, and I have a Bose system so that shit is loud!

Over last weekend, I went and installed a coil-split on my guitar using a push/pull potentiometer. Here are the results between flipping from the full output of the humbucker to the more nuanced and snappy single coil pickup. There’s a ton of info out there you can find just by using Google but, the best place to start in my opinion is GuitarElectronics.com, where you can fin all the parts you need and so many schematics and diagrams its insane, whether you have 1, 2 or 3 pickups, you can find a mod for them.
Here’s a quick demo of a Major scale on the Bridge pickup, First is Full Humbucker, Second is Split Single Coil
Here’s a quick demo of a Minor scale on the Neck pickup, First is Full Humbucker, Second is Split Single Coil
Chicken Picken’ is a guitar style of quick country runs and banjo style rolls. A mix of bends, double stops, slapping and popping the strings and a twangy guitar is standard for ay country tune from the beginning. These are a few licks from a youtube video I found that goes over a little lesson. Definitely something worth working on to help your picking hand and your scales. A pretty basic progression for country songs to solo over is A-D-E, which is found in a ton of hits from Lynard Skynard to Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackosn, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and so many more.
