This week we just grab some odds and ends, because why not…

First up videos by Wrathchild America and Souls at Zero.  If you’re paying attention you realized that they’re the same band.  After being dropped by Atlantic, prog-thrash band Wrathchild changed their name, cut their hair and over the course of two albums and an EP morphed into a first generation Nu Metal band.  Pretty good stff, either way.

It’s been a while since I’ve had a Yamaha THR video posted, so Jeff Loomis and Keith Merrow bring me back to my roots.

I want to make a new pickguard for my Explorer, but home improvement and general laziness have prevented me from doing so.  Do as I say, children, go forth and make some pickguards

Finally, Will Kelly shows you how to make new stuff look old.
