There are a small handful of topics that I'm endlessly fascinated by. One of them is my favorite music, and how it was made.

Nobody has written a book about that yet and I'm not counting on it, so I often have to figure some things out on my own. After testing a thousand different aspects of what makes guitar cabs sound like they do in my last video, I wanted to know what cab was used on my favorite music. It's a big piece of the sound.

So I went on a mission. It took years from start to finish, and involved an embarrassing amount of research, pulling up old files at my favorite studio, and a quick trip to the hardware store.

Hopefully I understand how to sound a little more like my electric guitar hero from here on out.
