    Bought a 6 Sting Banjo, am I a bad person?

    So you saying playing banjo is a form of penance? I won’t argue. It taught me humility. And gave me tinnitus.

    Yesterday was Don Gallagher Appreciation Day in Murfreesboro TN

    12 fret slot head D is on my wish list! Never had the opportunity to play a Gallagher. But I sure will just as soon as the opportunity presents itself. A couple Februarys ago I drove up to Murfreesboro and bought my Martin HD-28V. Had I known about Gallagher then maybe I’d have stopped in...

    Books, and the re-reading thereof

    We have a term for movies that we can just put on and not really pay attention to but still enjoy. We call them “default movies”. An example would be Forrest Gump. I have default books as well. Books I’ve read so many times that I can just turn to sections that I like and read them out of...

    Cheap guitar day

    I have nothing against cheap guitars. I personally would consider $599.00 a mid level guitar.

    Set For the Day

    I love days with the house to myself. I do the same thing, except with my Tele and my pedals and my big amp.

    Soft Shell Crab Dinner

    I’d eat it. My mom’s favorite food is fried soft shell crab. I’ll admit that the sautéed version looks a bit off putting. But hey that’s what the top piece of French bread on the poboy is for.

    Vintage Peavey acoustic guitar

    My non guitar playing cousin had a Peavey Dreadnought at his house. He’d picked it up somewhere and given it to his youngest daughter when she expressed interest in learning. I tuned it up and played on it for a minute or two. It was in fact a guitar. That’s about the best thing I can say about it.

    Guitar/Amp/Pedal wishlist

    The OM and 000 have the same body dimensions. As mentioned above the OM is long scale. The 000 is short scale.

    Guitar/Amp/Pedal wishlist

    I’m pretty happy at the moment, which feels nice. Not that I have a bunch of stuff, just in a position where I am really satisfied with what I have. Having said that, I think I could do a Martin 000-18 justice.

    What crazy guitar would you like to own some day?

    I used to want a Lace Cybercaster. The original one, not the second version. I actually played a used one once. It was groovy but the wanted like $1200 so…pass.

    Chewing gum while supposed to be a professional

    I agree. Maybe he’s worried about bad breath. Tell him to use mints or brush his teeth instead.
