    I did a segment for Mario at Chicago's Rock (chicagosrock.com). He is a tireless supporter of the Chicago music scene, and a big fan of MWC. Thanks for putting this together for us Mario!

    Click over to his website to see additional videos where I just kind of walk through some of the examples of stuff that I play in there.

    I finally had the time to watch all the videos on the chicago rocks website Mike. You're a beast bro! The very end of video 2 where you were talking about moving the open E note to 5th fret B to get that ascending diatonic run to sound clean was very cool dude. Major props on mentioning Eric Johnson also, that guy rules. :headbang:

    Dude, EJ is the man! I almost want to do a video for each of my hero's and just talk about what I learned from them, and all that. Oh, dude, I played one of those baritone guitars over at Chris's last month during our mixing session. They kick ass! I totally want one now, its different than my 7-string, in a good way.

    Yeah the baritones are very cool. I still prefer 7 strings though. I'm getting a baritone 7 string soon actually, but I'm keeping it tuned B-E.

    Thats cool. My 7 is good for now. This 2nd album is going to be really epic-y anyway. I've always been a dropped-d if I need heaviness type of dude anyway. SymX drops down a whole step, I wonder if that would sound cool for our material. Our future material, I guess. There isn't a drop-tuned tune on this album at all!

    I have a baritone acoustic if you ever feel the need to use one on an album Mike.
