Glenn Fricker’s Soldering Tips for the Home Studio

Now here’s a tutorial I SORELY needed. Glenn Fricker yells a lot, but as we know now, he yells because he wants you not to fuck it up, because he wants the world to be a better place. Today he’s yelling at you about how to solder properly, which is really not something I knew how to do.

Sure, I’ve sloppily repaired a few loose connections in my guitars before, mostly just using the solder that was already on there to replace a wire that had popped off. But this gives me a bit more confidence while brandishing the white hot poker of finger destruction and the melty wire.

So get your knowledgin’ on and heat things up!

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
