I have just started a new blog about guitars.

Avid guitar collector and average guitar player Claes is writing about his thoughts on buying and collecting guitars, fixing them up yourself and just general guitar stuff. Claes has never even met a real luthier and doesn’t pretend to be an expert in any way. He just believes that the best way of learning is by trying and he likes to share his experiences and mistakes as he goes along and learn more and more about guitars. Claes loves all guitars as long as they are older than 20 years and ideally were made in Japan.

Araceli and I have just arrived in Samos, Greece. I’m going to attend and also photograph a Swedish friend of mines wedding here on Thursday. Until then Araceli and I are looking forward to a week of Greek holidays in the company of many old friends of mine from Sweden. Here are some photos from the trip.

The Power of Personal Influence from Self Control, Its Kingship and Majesty by William George Jordan, 1905.

The only responsibility that a man cannot evade in this life is the one he thinks of least,—his personal influence. Man’s conscious influence, when he is on dress-parade, when he is posing to impress those around him,—is woefully small. But his unconscious influence, the silent, subtle radiation of his personality, the effect of his words and acts, the trifles he never considers, —is tremendous. Every moment of life he is changing to a degree the life of the whole world. Every man has an atmosphere which is affecting every other. So silent and unconsciously is this influence working, that man may forget that it exists.

All the forces of Nature,—heat, light, electricity and gravitation,—are silent and invisible. We never see them.; we only know that they exist by seeing the effects they produce. In all Nature the wonders of the “seen ” are dwarfed into insignificance when compared with the majesty and glory of the “unseen.” continue reading…

I just got my new little practice amp and it’s awesome, a VOX Pathfinder 10W. It might not be to loudest amp I’ve played on but still pretty nice clean tone on both my 335 and my Telecaster. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to deal well with my Stratocaster, it only has a treble and a bass knob so I can’t get enough middle for any descent Hendrix’s sound. Well worth the 60 € I paid for it from Euroguitar and it arrived in 4 days. Here in Barcelona you can’t seem to buy anything in store. I really like to support my local community but even though the prices are OK the service is so bad so it’s really not worth it. They say they will order things for you and it will be there in 2 days, next time you come in they say it might take a month and they don’t seem to care at all. I don’t know if it’s my fault for not speaking Catalan or if it’s just the service minded gene missing in Catalan people. I’ve tried a lot of things, hats, pipes, guitars and now an amp, they all seem to be the same. They can’t be asked to help you even if you want to spend some money. From now on, I’m Señor Internet and I will continue to order everything online. If anyone needs a small 10W amp and prefer clean sound I can strongly recommend the VOX Pathfinder 10W, the overdrive channel is the normal super heavy metal distortion that I hate but clean or slightly pushed on the gain it sounds great for price  and as you can see bellow, it looks amazing.

I so wish I would have written this song for the love of my life, Araceli.

Bob Dylan & The Band – Wedding song

I love you more than ever, more than time and more than love
I love you more than money and more than the stars above
Love you more than madness, more than waves upon the sea
Love you more than life itself, you mean that much to me

Ever since you walked right in, the circle’s been complete
I’ve said goodbye to haunted rooms and faces in the street
To the courtyard of the jester which is hidden from the sun
I love you more than ever and I haven’t yet begun

You breathed on me and made my life a richer one to live
When I was deep in poverty you taught me how to give
Dried the tears up from my dreams and pulled me from the hole
Quenched my thirst and satisfied the burning in my soul

You gave me babies one, two, three, what is more, you saved my life
Eye for eye and tooth for tooth, your love cuts like a knife
My thoughts of you don’t ever rest, they’d kill me if I lie
I’d sacrifice the world for you and watch my senses die

The tune that is yours and mine to play upon this earth
We’ll play it out the best we know, whatever it is worth
What’s lost is lost, we can’t regain what went down in the flood
But happiness to me is you and I love you more than blood

It’s never been my duty to remake the world at large
Nor is it my intention to sound a battle charge
‘Cause I love you more than all of that with a love that doesn’t bend
And if there is eternity I’d love you there again

Oh, can’t you see that you were born to stand by my side
And I was born to be with you, you were born to be my bride
You’re the other half of what I am, you’re the missing piece
And I love you more than ever with that love that doesn’t cease

You turn the tide on me each day and teach my eyes to see
Just bein’ next to you is a natural thing for me
And I could never let you go, no matter what goes on
‘Cause I love you more than ever now that the past is gone

I completely forgot to post something at the time but Daniel Rigby that I did headshots for a 2-3 years ago won a BAFTA award for best leading actor. Not bad at all, well done.
