Hi! I’m Warren Sirota, and I’ve been a writer and programmer in the music world for quite a while. I’ve written about music and music gear for Guitar Player, Electronic Musician, Musician, BAM, Multimedia World and many other publications. I’m also the author of SlowGold, the Woodshed’s flagship product and the editor of this Woodsheddin’ blog.
I play a lot of guitar (and have been doing so for over 30 years), yet I’m always trying to learn how to play better. Sometimes improvement is accomplished through physical exercises, but just as often through listening, transcription, study and ear-training. After all, it’s one thing to have fast fingers, but an entirely different thing to give them something worthwhile to play.
