Fretless Update

I jammed with the Roan last night, and the fretless sounded quite good. Or at least I was able to hide behind the extreme disorganization of the jam. Hah.

Playing Tonight

I was able to do the coffee-house thing tonight, I used my Gibson which sounded stellar when being played with a thumb. Paying $550CDN for that was probably one of the best deals I've ever gotten.

How I Burned Through $100 at L&M

I bought a ton of strings... Not all that exciting, but I did need them, so it's not all bad.

Watch This Space...

I just got a Long & McQuade gift card for Christmas. So there may be some goodies in my future (or just strings, who knows).

Ooooo, New Look

Here's the new look. I jumped to fancypants blogger and so I decided to mess around with ABP in it.

I have to say that I'm getting tired of lugging my heavy combo amp everywhere. At over 60 lbs, the Ashdown ABM combo is both heavy and bulky. The problem though is that I love the tone. This amp is always stunning sounding. It's also plenty loud for keeping up with all kinds of noisy all-tube guitar amps. There are a number of other combos that I would consider, but they would have to give me that tonal satisfaction.

I actually like those two jazz basses stretching over the whole back of the page in that last post. Maybe its a background idea?
