Hey! I'm Josh.

Like you, my inbox is overflowing with things that demand my time.

I love a curated collection of links as much as the next guy, but... it's too much. I don't have time to read, watch, & listen to everything that's recommended to me.

So my own email newsletter is different. It's called:

Riffs, Recs, Charts, & Smarts.

  • Riffs: Tiny little stories, rants, or observations. Like an essay, but shorter.
  • Recs: *One* recommendation. And it's self-contained—click the link if you want to, but I'll summarize the idea, podcast, book, or trend in the email itself.
  • Charts: Real guitar parts from real songs, accurately transcribed, then shared via the amazing SoundSlice. The notation & TAB are sync'd to the original audio, and you can slow it down & loop sections. (Example here.)
  • Smarts: Little guitar & theory lessons taken from that week's transcription.

I send one out every Wednesday to 5000 curious, growth-minded people like you.

Drop your name & email below and click Heck Yeah.
