So, one of my goals for 2010 has been to secure an endorsement, which, for those who don’t know, is basically an agreement between artist and company that the artist will use the company’s products/services in exchange for promoting them to their fanbase. Anyway, I got an opportunity to partner up with Blue Microphones, and I’m happy to say I jumped on it.
Last week I flew out to the East Coast to do a few shows in NYC and CT. On the return flight, I got into a long talk with another passenger about the logistics of flying with a guitar. Whether or not it could be carried on, how I get it past the gate agents, etc. So after giving him all my tips and tricks, I thought they might be of general interest. The quick overview is this: play dumb, ask nicely, and beg. All of the specific tips come from those three principles.
So, happy Valentine’s Day, from me to you! I recorded a down and dirty version of one of my favorite Sam Cooke tunes, called Nothing Will Ever Change This Love I Have For You. It’s a capella, and recorded on one take in a bathroom on an iphone.
But I hope you enjoy it nonetheless!
