Martin Taylor will be in the ArtistWorks studio on Tuesday, January 19 recording new guitar lessons for his online students at ArtistWorks. Many of the new topics come as special requests from the students who we asked awhile back, so a big thanks to all of you who participated in the forum thread. We will also be live streaming some of the action in the studio starting around 11 AM PST, so be sure to tune in on Periscope. We will also send out the link to watch on Twitter so stay tuned on Tuesday!

One of the inspirations for the title of my new album, "I Can Destroy," is the giant atom smasher at CERN. For the photos for the album's CD booklet, I wanted to smash my guitar into a big model of an atom. I didn't get this idea until the night before the photo session. So I made a very hurried trip to my local sporting goods store, to buy one soccer ball, three tennis balls, and three hula hoops. Then I stopped at the hardware store and got some silver and black spraypaint, some string, some Velcro, and some tape. With the help of Neil Zlozower, the photographer, I was able to assemble a very satisfying "atom." The strings, Velcro, and the lines in the soccer ball were easy to remove in Photoshop. And my concept had become reality.
