Episode 411 – The Royal Tone of a Blood Spitting Axeman

Danny Roy, cousin, musician and luthier is back! We start this one mid-conversation with a talk about the Arnold workouts (22:00). Then we dive headlong into a chat about guitars and gear (4:05): What happens when something is priced incorrectly in retail; what the difference is between an Epiphone and Gibson and Squires; Gene’s Ax Bass and how spitting blood makes playing difficult. Danny now runs his own guitar shop called Royal Tone Guitar and Services (19:12). We discuss the ins and outs of the business and he shares some stories behind the bench.

Danny offers his views on studios and home studios (31:29). We talk Chris Jericho’s Kuarantine and bedtime recording sessions during the pandemic.

Tracks we hear this week include:

Untitled – Thunderfunk (from their cassette tape release) (17:48)

No, No, No – Kuarantine (Chris Jericho’s Kiss cover band) (35:12)

Slapshot Boogie – Thunderfunk (from their unreleased second album) (45:57)

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
