A fun evening…

I’m enjoying an evening of Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire movie and reading a bit of Austin Kleon, specifically his book Steal Like An Artist.

I have to say that I truly enjoying reading the insights of other artists, whether that’s a traditional artist, musician, writer, fire dancer, Pokémon master, whatever. It’s just refreshing when you can hear from a peer and apply his or her ideas to your own work.

After this, I’ll be knocking out Austin’s book Show Your Work! Pretty excited.

New Recording Tool

I was scanning through Facebook today and ran across this post for a new digital-based guitar.

I have to say, this bad boy seems interesting at the least. Being able to “play” the guitar is something everyone has fantasied about (I’m an amateur air guitarist, myself) but this guitar seems to give a person a the ability to be a pro with the press of a single button.

What I want to find out about this guitar is if it would act like a midi instrument for recording? If it does, it would be a game-changer for artists who want to speed up his or her recording sessions. Being able to apply a natural strum sound with the ability to digital change the key/notes of the song would be incredible.

So what do you think? Who else is interested in the Magic Instrument Guitar?
