All Change


Most of you that read this news feed will have noticed that things have been rather too quiet for a couple of years. I am surprised at the traffic we receive to some of the technical articles and to the online tools. For this I thank you. The site will soon undergo a complete revamp and we hope to bring you more details on this very soon. If you are interested in writing articles and tutorials or to record video lessons, then please do get in touch as we will need your help! Thank you to all the supporters of Blind-Summit through our (nearly) 11 years online!

Apologies for the downtime today. We’ve moved into a fantastic new server thanks to the guys over at http://www.34sp.com. Hopefully nothing has broken in the move, but please let me know if you spot anything that doesn’t look right.

If you have an interest in wtiting music related articles, or would like to help us out with a video lesson, then please get in touch. We really need writers!

Les Paul with guitar

Credited as the inventor of the electric guitar, a pioneer of recording techniques, an inductee of the Grammy and Rock ‘n’ Roll halls of fame; Les Paul was one of the great names in the world of guitars. He was suffering from from severe pneumonia and died at a hospital in White Plains, New York last night. He will be sadly missed by his many fans and those that he has influenced, and also remembered for his great work with guitars and music.
