Some of you might already have noticed that this site has its own shop since a few days. You can enter the shop with the MK-Guitar.com Shop button on the right side of the header section.
After some initial beta testing I am proud to announce that you can buy stuff like
* Gear (partly vintage stuff)
Ernie Balls, Morleys, effects, instruments … mostly used, ocassionally new stuff
Not too much yet, but I hope to offer some more nice stuff here in the future (check regularly since these things are normally single items, first come, first serve…)
* My backing tracks
Many asked in the past for these, they are the ones I created to use on some of my youtube videos.
Note that I finally sorted out all legal aspects and can now offer these legally here, which means with buying these you will not only support this site, but also MK himself 😉
If some of the articles of this blog were helpful for you in the past, you can now say thank you by simply buying one or more of these tracks alternatively to the Buy-me -a-beer thing below the posts.
At the moment there are only three backing tracks (Brothers in Arms, Six Blade Knife, Wild West End) but I have the following tracks already in personal use, still need to fix some final details: Sultans of Swing (long version), Romeo & Juliet (like on recent live versions), Song for Sonny Liston, Setting me up, Southbound Again (live “boogie” version), Down to the Waterline
* Fan Items
I have a few spare copies of some of the Dire Straits books and stuff like that.
* Planned: Own products
Yes, there are actually some nice things in the pipeline …
* Planned: Video Tutorials & eBooks
There are occasionally some weird tricks, techniques, patterns etc. which I learned to play after actually studying these things since I started to play guitar in 1979. Please understand that I am not necessarily keen on giving *everything* away for free e.g. on youtube, but I decided to offer all I know in some kind of video tutorials. I am still working on conceptual details, watch out for things to come.
Also note that I meanwhile reduced my regular job (one reason … to have more time for things like this site…) so it makes sense that this site might generate some income – the more, the more time for it in the future 🙂
Of course there will still be more free stuff on youtube as well.
Planned: Use the shop to sell your stuff
If you now or at any time want to sell any MK related gear, you might also want to offer it in this shop. This way you might reach an interested audience and the stuff can reside there as long as it takes to get a decent price. You don’t need to ship stuff to me of course, just use the shop as a platform to find a buyer. You can contact me in case for details.
I hope you will have fun browsing the store. Use the comment function of this article for suggestions or opinions.
