I’ll be the first to admit that I like buying and selling guitar gear. Hi, my name is Craig and I have G.A.S.. For those of you unaware, G.A.S. is Gear Acquisition Syndrome. In all seriousness, I’m really not that bad.
I do love the feeling of a new guitar in my hands and playing through new pedals and amps. A lot of times when I play through new gear it sparks new ideas. That’s exactly how California Strut was born.
There was just something about the sound coming from the amp that made me want to play this groove. It was very natural. It reminded me of a dude skating down the Venice beach boardwalk. Carefree, enjoying the wind in his face and fully experiencing the moment.

Each song will be posted to SoundCloud (rough mix, unmastered and low-fi). When the album is finished it will be professionally mastered for iTunes. A limited number of copies of the CD will be available for sale. The release date is set for April.
