:: Almost seventy percent of the curling stones currently in use around the world came from Ailsa Craig. (Apparently Paul’s doing a series of posts called “The ABCs of Curling”, which makes me happy because curling is one cool sport, which I don’t understand for the life of me.)
:: From the iconic opening riff of “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and the driving staccato rhythm of Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song,” to the weeping wail of Gary Moore’s “Still Got the Blues,” this behemoth is one of the most coveted instruments on the planet. If the Fender Stratocaster is the precision sniper rifle of the guitar world, then the Les Paul is a veritable Howitzer of sound. It’s meaty tone can go from raunchy clack to the smooth and buttery lament of angels with just the flick of a switch.
All for this week. Tune in next week!
