Free Tequila!

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

Please enjoy this cover of the classic Chuck Rio tune, Tequila! I’ve been teaching myself to play saxophone for about the last 4 months. Here is is my debut recording. I couldn’t finger the guitar chords, so my pal Eric graciously provided the excellent guitar work. I laid down the drums, handclap, and a temporary [...]

Lo-Diddley Box Guitar

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Here are some pictures of a “box guitar” that I recently built. It’s sort of like a cigar box guitar, only rather than finding a pre-built box and scratch-building a neck for it, I bought a guitar neck, and scratch-built a box for it. I picked up a neck from a new, but broken Cort [...]

Comanche!

Saturday, April 24th, 2010

Here is a free Rock-n-Roll download for you. I recorded this cover of Link Wray’s 1959 song Comanche. Enjoy : Comanche Guitars, percussion, vocals: Steve Lodefink Vocals: Harlan Lodefink, Ivan Lodefink. UPDATE: A lot of people have asked me about my recording process for this song, mostly wondering if I used drum loops, and where [...]

Garage Surf Motivational

Monday, August 24th, 2009

I picked up this Personal Motivation 7″ about 15 years ago, thinking that I might someday do something with it. Recently, I have been figuring out how to play the guitar, and decided to put it to use. Well, here is rough draft of a song that I am recording. Guitars by me, drums by [...]

Cigar Box Guitar

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

Here are some photos and build notes for a cigar box guitar that I built. I’ve wanted to do one of these ever since I read about CBG’s in Make Magazine several years ago. If you’ve never heard or seen CBG’s in action, you should treat yourself to a few of the videos on Cigar [...]

Telecaster Complete

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

After about 3 weeks, I could no longer smell the lacquer, so I considered it dry and set about the task of making the guitar shiny. Wet Sanding To get the paint level and remove the slight orange peel texture that you will get with all but the most fortuitous rattle-can spray jobs, I wet [...]

Grizzly Telecaster Progress

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

I really had my heart set on adding an edge binding to my grizzly telecaster kit. The problem is that the guitar body comes supplied with the edges pre-sanded and rounded off to a 1/4″ radius. This curvature was too much to allow for installation of even the thickest edge binding that I could find, [...]

Grizzly Telecaster Kit

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

I had such a blast putting together the Grizzly Uke kit a few years back, that I thought I would try my hand at a guitar. Having always admired the iconic Fender Telecaster, i ordered myself the Tele’ kit from Grizzly for $129. If you hanker for a Telecaster kit, you are not limited to [...]
