the ultimate guitar tone…

We are very excited and a little nervous at the same time, as we write our first ever blog post. We are excited by the thought of sharing our ideas, inspirations, influences and passion about all things music related. As well as sharing what’s happening at the studio etc. and having some fun along the way….. This is new territory for us. Wish us luck, here we go…..

For our very first post, we’d like to share a great guitar blog that we found a little while ago. It’s on a topic that is very close to James’ heart………..the endless quest for the ultimate guitar tone.

Guitarist Romain Bigeard has set up a really great blog for all things guitar related. It’s called, guitar tone overload and it focuses on his “endless quest for the ultimate guitar tone(s)” using effects, amps, and all sorts of other guitar equipment. He focuses on boutique equipment (pedals and such that are made in small factories or by hand) as well as more mainstream stuff. He explores the guitar tones of various famous guitarists. He not only writes about what each guitarist uses, but he also makes demo videos to show his readers how to get ‘the tone’ with certain equipment. It’s pretty cool stuff! 

Explore, enjoy & share with others! Thanks for sharing Romain.

a little about us………

voodoo child music was born out of a life long passion for music and teaching music. After a successful career teaching music privately, James wanted to create something new and exciting. James and Siobhán had a shared vision of opening a little musical oasis in lovely Surrey Hills, Victoria. A special place that provides great quality music lessons to student of all ages. A place that gives every student the opportunity to perform, if they so desire.
The little studio has continually evolved into an intimate teaching and performing space. James and Siobhán have surrounded themselves with a team of wonderful, passionate, like minded teachers who make the little studio hum each day!
James and Siobhán currently divide their time between teaching, nurturing voodoo child music and caring for their two young children. They are lucky enough to love what they do.
This is their blog.
