drewshirley The solid drumming of @chadbutler is always on point. He's playing a kick snare beat that will be effected to sound like a drum machine, just FYI a cool trick for any drummers out there. Kick and mono overhead then distort to ur liking. Be inspired, dr.ew #switchfoot #album10 2d

I heard Jon say once that, "music is like sausage...you love the finished product but don't want to see how it's made".

  •   tkacz11 How the sausage gets made! You guys must check out @hamiltonmusical. 3w
  •   macgyver621 I can very much attest to that quote. Recording and mixing... After hearing the song so many times, you start hearing every tiny detail. The compression, eq, etc. it makes it no longer enjoyable listening with a solely critical ear. 3w
  •   tylerbouma Yesssssss 3w
  •   kylenbreen Hey man! Have an extra bun runner laying around that you wouldn't mind giving up? You've been the hugest inspiration to me and your fuzz sounds are out of this world. I really appreciate everything you do for music, the gear community and people in general. I hope to meet you and the guys someday. It was a blessing to see you guys at the Real Life faith and family festival October 2014 (I play guitar at that church), bummed I couldn't get to say hey then. Sorry for the long comment, I hope to hear back from you in any capacity. Thanks again! -Kyle 3w

drewshirley For me going to the NAMM show and trying out all the new pedals, amps, and guitars is kind of like a fat kid in a candy store...or maybe a vegetarian kid at a farmers market...ok, forget the food analogies, I just love gear and still can't believe that it is my job to study it and play it! There is some amazing new gear out there! Keep up the passion, be inspired, and don't let them steal your soul!... Thanks to everyone who's ever supported me, here's to you. Call me, text me, Cheers,- dr.ew #switchfoot 3w

drewshirley Photo shoot day! ...you gotta hear this true story.
No joke, @lionelrichie stopped me in New York and said..."young man, let me see that leather jacket...that's MY leather jacket, where did you get it?" ... "I got it at a thrift store in Vancouver.", I said nervously (he's a big guy, and quite handsome). "Well, looks exactly like my jacket from the 70's", he said taking a really good look at it, "If you find a good leather jacket you better not let it go!"
Amazing,
Dr.ew

  •   theunwrittenmusic Hey man. This is Davis Dodds. I talked to you for a little bit at y'alls show at Red Rocks this summer. I tried to catch you at the @jhspedals booth today, but you had already moved on. The Stumbo's are family friends of ours, and I hear y'all are pretty close. I grew up on Switchfoot, and would love to meet you for coffee or something the next time you're in DFW. 3w

drewshirley Strat Tracking. This was my first "real" guitar that my old friend, who worked on the assembly line at Fender, sold me in college. Then I found out later that it wasn't really a "custom shop" guitar like he said. I think he just put it together himself out of spare parts...oh well, I love it and all of its pieces...
