Welcome to Make Better Music! First things first…thanks for the feedback, and keep it coming. We’re happy you think we’re on the right track, but we also appreciate your suggestions on how we can serve you better. And you can help us take this newsletter to the next level—please forward it to your friends, and encourage them to subscribe.

In this edition, we go from the basic to the esoteric. Craig Anderton tells you not only why you want to record handclaps, but how to do it right—and why you might want to master what you record with Ploytec's Aroma plug-In. Guest contributor Travis Browning casts the critical eye of a Fender fan on the Epiphone Les Paul Special VE, while Chris Loeffler reviews the Electro-Harmonix Canyon Delay (Canyon Delay Canyon Delay Canyon Delay), then cuts through the confusing choices in effects technology. Phil O'Keefe presents the final part of his must-read trilogy on microphones, and tickles the ivories on Casio's Privia PX-160 Digital Piano. And finally, Chris explains how to make your guitar sing with vibrato, followed by guest contributor Cody from Musician Tuts walking you through twelve beautiful blues chords you're gonna wanna learn.
