Even though I've decided they're all about the same, I still wish Fender would send me out a Tuff Dog for personal testing that I could just keep when I got done with the job.Good insight. I have a decent collection of guitars, ranging from a Squier I bought for pocket change to a high end MIA Guild, but any of them are good enough for my next gig. Today, for band practice, I grabbed a Tele that was MIM and it sounded great. Would a more expensive one have sounded better? Probably not, and especially so with a Tele, which is a simple instrument.
OK, how 'bout it!
Nice story TD! I do think you need a set of bagpipes though.... they'd sound great on the fairway I'm sure!
I could go out there on Tuesday that's lady's day here and strut around in one of them Kilts, blowing them bagpipes! Probably ought to try and pick a day that ain't too windy!
Please know I'm only posting this as a friend to save you future embarrassment: you should know that to people younger than you, the phrase "hook up" has only one meaning, and it's not the same as "meet up."...I could see we weren't making any headway trying to hook up, and I knew both my niece and my wife wanted to see each other since it's been a couple of years since they saw each other, so I made a suggestion. Why don't we get a really nice pizza and head up there?
Most likely anyone seeing how old I am, would know hooking up can't have any further connotations than meeting for a visit!Please know I'm only posting this as a friend to save you future embarrassment: you should know that to people younger than you, the phrase "hook up" has only one meaning, and it's not the same as "meet up."
For the win on Monday, April 11, 2022:That’s called an epiphany. I had one last week when I restrung my Gibson SG with nickel strings with a wound G. The guitar sounds like I always wanted it to sound. Tone isn’t in the fingers. It’s in the strings. Epiphany.
The real epiphany isn’t that. We all know it’s not. The epiphany is way simpler. Learn to appreciate what you have. Until you do, your appreciation for anything new will fade fast.
She's fixing me a late breakfast (brunch?) I might hold off on that suggestion 'til she finished cookin'!
I learned many, many moons ago, don't mess with the cook. Adam Cartright told Hop Sing one day, Hop Sing, I am going to quit beating you as of today! Hop Sing replied, Good I quit putting shoe polish in your coffee as of tomorrow!Ah yes.... good call When my wife is cookin' and I come up with some sort of snappy remark to something we're talkin' about she'll usually say "Say that again... I dare you...." and then gets this mischievous look in her eyes, Dr. No sort of grin, holding a bottle of habanero sauce over my dinner....
