"This is all so subjective isn't it? Confusing too! If I were I your shoes I'd go to a store and try a number of guitars with different electronics onboard. Then trust your ears but remember the amplification system influences the sound…"

"I firmly believe in humor as a relief valve. I inject humor into many situations just to relieve tension or turn a semi tragic moment into a funny one. A good laugh is good for everyone."

Here we go again!

I've blogged about my fairly recent band experiences and this is yet another.

Ever since the drummer and bass player walked out on us we've been contacting and auditioning players. CraigsList is where I find musicians because frankly,… Continue

Because you are my friend.

This past Thursday my longtime friend and I went and performed at an open mic.

My friend, Roger, who I’ve posted photos of and written about here, taught me how to play bass guitar back in the day. We were in bands together throughout high…

Life is good Pt. 2 con't

I'm posting this from home two weeks later since the opportunity to sit and write for my blog didn't present itself until now.

The morning after our warm up jam we all awoke in a bit of a fog. But there was food to prep, cleaning to do… Continue

Life IS Good Pt. 2

I am posting this from CT this morning. We are here for our annual Yankee Swap that I wrote about in part 1.

I left work early Friday so we could beat the horrendous Boston rush hour traffic as well as the west bound Mass Pike crawl. The… Continue

Thanks Terry!  It was originally written just to test something, but it kinda grew on me and made me laugh, so I posted it.  8-D  Gotta have fun and laugh at yourself sometimes right?

Thanks for the add. I will let you know when I finally 'pull the trigger' on the Taylor t5 purchase.

Thanks so much for listening to my song "Suddenly" I'm really glad you like it!!

Well, kudos to you for putting it out there....takes a lot of courage and dedication, and having a group of stars doesn't hurt either.

have fun!

At 5:37pm on January 15, 2013, Alan Edmunds said…

Well, that makes you a real guitarist....and it sounds like you may have a good group on your hands.

Best of luck getting it all together and makin' music.....should be fun!

Nope, no 12-string yet....but too busy to even play my 6-string right now, so that's okay. It was ordered 8 days ago and the shortest delivery is about 2 weeks.

As far as my guitar skills, they are pretty ordinary. I can chord just about anything if it's in simple format and I do a little finger-style stuff, but I mostly play so I can sing and those who listen say I sing pretty good. Who am I to argue. I am, however, working on playing better, especially finger-style/Travis style.  I was recently diagnosed with arthritis in both hands (nowhere else) so that cramps my style a lot. It's a great challenge at 56, but great fun.

I hoping to put up a video of me doing a song or two in the next 3-4 months.....we'll see how that goes.

How about you....what are you up to?

At 11:45am on January 9, 2013, Alan Edmunds said…

Well, I'm glad your guitar is as good as new...or better.

Hmmm, not sure my guitars play as well as they look when in my hands, but I have a great time playing them. Looking forward to getting my new 12-string in a few weeks.

Thanks for the invite...accepted, of course. And, again, sorry about Lou. Has the repair happened?

At 4:37pm on January 5, 2013, Marty said…

Hi T, good thing is I'm making money to pay the bills. F/U about guitars now own Washburn WG26SE, Takamine TF450SM SB, and Fender American Strat Deluxe. I'm selling St Blues Mississippi Bluesmaster,Reverend Sensei RT, & Morgan Monroe Blues 32. I'm taking your advise and play even if its for 15-20 minutes when I come home to keep the rust off. Hope you have a great,prosperous,healthy 2013....Marty
