So here I am finally notching the saddles on my 52 Telecaster which I highly recommend because over the last 13 years I've been playing this guitar I've broke so many strings because I did not do this to the bridge. If you did not know this trick I'm happy to share it. I wish someone would have told me but musicians are kind of snobbish when it comes to sharing ideas and techniques about gear. In fact I had a guitarist in a band here in Los Angeles that would put tape over all the names of his pedals and feared someone would copy him. I thought it was kind of beautiful and pathetic. I had to go buy another metal file set which is only like 10 bucks at Home Depot. And the pick up that you see in the picture is a Seymour Duncan Hot Lead Stacks. That's the same pick up that Jeff Buckley had in his Telecaster but just remember his Telecaster was I believe a 1983 top loader. The strings on a 52 go through the body which actually give the guitar a little bit more tone and sustain. For all you Telecaster fans out there I thought sharing the work on my 🎸 would inspire you.

It's been a rough week. Newly single, strong depression, confusion, weakness, hopelessness, loneliness, and a lack of optimism. With that music is always the one lover I'll keep in my arms till the end of time. A snippet of my playthrough of my song Frameless. Will get the rest on YouTube eventually. Check out my ep Infinite Stages of Grief. #posthardcore #hardcore #metalcore #screamo #emo #poppunk #punk #selfproduced #newmusic #mychemicalromance #theused #piercetheveil #bringmethehorizon #askingalexandria #afi #falloutboy #paniceatthedisco #paramore #alltimelow #dancegavindance #scene #followme #follow4follow #guyswithlonghair #guyswithink #guyswithpiercings
When I was a child I would have dreams about different people shooting me in the back or getting chased with swords. Getting evaporated by nuclear bombs or getting poisoned by jealous lovers. I never really feared dying because in my dreams I was always dying different ways. I guess it made me feel like death was a bit of entertainment for my soul. -Ian #writingnewsongs #hatedbylove #iantaylor #dropthehate #losangelesmusic #originalmusic #musicvibes #selfproduced #livetoinspire #instaquotes #stronger #catsofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #writersofinstagram #knockknock #godslove #musicindustry #myths #socialmedia #xmen #unbreakable #dreams #instagood #dreams #future #lifequotes #leonardcohen
Did you get to hear this older cover of Eternal Life that I did back in 2005? So my thought of the day. What moral lesson did the leaf at the top of the tree say to the leaf at the bottom of the tree as it fell to the ground? And the leaf replied oh but I am not just a leaf falling to this ground I am only part of this tree. The leaf at the bottom replied but I thought that you dreamt of becoming like a tree? Yes you are right but that was when I was part of the tree. Now as I fall through the sky I want to be part of the ground to help another tree grow. A little girl picks up the leaf off the ground and presses it into her journal and says quietly to the leaf. You will remind me of this beautiful day for the rest of my life. The leaf says to itself. At least I will only have to wait. -Ian #writingnewsongs #hatedbylove #iantaylor #dropthehate #losangelesmusic #original #originalmusic #musicvibes #selfproduced #livetoinspire #instaquotes #stronger #catsofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #writersofinstagram #knockknock #godslove #musicindustry #myths #socialmedia #xmen #unbreakable #dreams #instagood #dreams #future #lifequotes

@johnmellencamp Check out John Mellencamp on MSNBC morning. Aired Yesterday September 2017. He talks about his writing about race relationships in America.You can find it on YouTube. The only thing that I don't like about MSNBC is that they say he's turning into Tom Waits. I think News reporters should keep their opinions to themselves and just give the news. -Ian "Second best is what you get-till you learn to bend this rules Time respects no person-what you lift up must fall They're waiting outside-to claim my crumblin' walls Saw my picture in the paper Read the news around my face And now some people Don't want to treat me the same When the walls come tumblin' down When the walls come crumblin' crumblin' When the walls come tumblin' tumblin' down" -John Mellencamp #johnmellencamp #easytarget #crumblindown #writingnewsongs #hatedbylove #iantaylor #dropthehate #losangelesmusic #original #originalmusic #musicvibes #selfproduced #livetoinspire #instaquotes #stronger #catsofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #writersofinstagram #knockknock #godslove #musicindustry #myths #socialmedia #xmen #unbreakable #dreams #instagood #dreams #future #farmaid #rainonthescarecrow
