Music Nomad MN205 Guitar AND Oreck Air Purifier Cleaner ???

Music Nomad MN205 Guitar AND Oreck Air Purifier Cleaner ???

Sometimes you accidentally find a separate, yet arguably even more important use for a tool you already have.
That is certainly the case with the Music Nomad MN205.
While I already had them for cleaning my guitars, I found they are also the perfect cleaning tool for my Oreck Air Purifier.
Having struggled with chemical sprays and twist ties, I was looking for an easier way to clean the Truman Cell in the purifier.
One day I had the Nomad in the drying rack, having just washed the microfiber and I realized that it was the perfect thickness to get between the slats of the Truman Cell I was trying to clean.
Bam! Perfect fit and took half the time.
So, whether you have guitars, Oreck Air Purifiers, or both, this is a great tool to have on-hand.

How-To Keep Your Guitar In Position When Playing Seated DIY

So, the other day I was practicing and felt my left shoulder wanting to hack itself off my body and start a life of its own.
I thought, 'Why does my shoulder absolutely kill when I'm practicing?!?!' and found part of the reason.
I do much of my practicing while sitting down, but with a strap.
I realized the strap was firmly resting on my left shoulder.
I looked down and realized that was because the guitar was slowly creeping forward on my leg while I was playing, putting stress on my strap, and, thus, my shoulder.
Having a non-slip pad on the waist of the guitar would certainly stop that from happening.
The Gibson Flying V and Steinberger rubber pads popped into my head, and I didn't see anyone selling them at a price that made it feasible for the 15 guitars I have.
A little searching around lead me to the Soft-Touch Self Stick Pads 4" x 1"

I bought a few sets and they worked for what I needed them to- my strap is generally pretty loose on my shoulder now.
I place them right in the waist of the guitar, which keeps the guitar from creeping forward. 

 

The other benefit I found was that I can keep my technique the same as I practice- as the guitar crept forward, I was naturally changing the angle of my picking and fretting hands to compensate, something I never thought of.
Now they're on all of my guitars.
I cannot guarantee that they won't discolor or affect the guitar's finish (especially with nitro finishes), but, on my personal guitars, the reward outweighs the risk.

Michael Angelo Batio Clinic @ All Music Inc Sat Oct 27th from 6pm-8pm

Michael Angelo Batio Clinic @ All Music Inc Sat Oct 27th from 6pm-8pm

This will be the 3rd time we at All Music have been gifted with a visit from Michael Batio.

Batio is one of the most technically savvy players on the scene- his instructional video in the early 90's immediately sent me and my friends back to our practice rooms.

His clinics are always laid back and informative- a very good time with a great player.
