Daft Paragon surfs the internet so you don’t have to.

The Art of Making, Alma Flamenca from Deep Green Sea on Vimeo.

The Art of Making is a short documentary about creating a gorgeous flamenco guitar.  So much win in this.

A limited edition, screen printed shirt to sell at shows might bring you closer to your fans than just throwing up a link to Café Press.  I have no idea how to screen print, but where there’s a will there’s an article in Make.

Slow Motion Booth Tutorial! from Super Frog Saves Tokyo on Vimeo.

Super Frog Saves Tokyo teaches you how to make a slow motion photo booth for your next party.  I suggest combining it with a slip n slide.

I’ve often thought to myself, “Self, you should attach a soup can lid to your guitar with a paperclip and use it in your bid for one man band supremacy,” but I never got around to it.  Dammit, someone beat me to it.

The worst kept secret on the photographic internet gets reviewed by Chris Nichols. Who is not Kai Man Wong, even though they are both Asian.

You didn’t hear it from me, but the conditions under which the previous Tone King died were suspicious to say the least.  Anyway, here the current wearer of The Tone Crown tests out $99 practice amps from Peavey and Fender.  Both of them are probably way better than anything you had when you were starting and would make good Christmas/Chanukah gifts for the young guitarist in your life.  Also, I call for revolution! We need a democratically elected Tone President up in this piece!!!!

I find myself thoroughly obsessed with the Yamaha THR series of amps.  I keep trying to convince myself that I need one (I totally don’t need one). Here, Richard Beech from Sonicstate walks us through why you should be thoroughly obsessed with them, too.

Sometimes there are no words besides, “amazeballs.”  Technically that is one word, but it’s a made up one.
