I tried to post a link. Dont think it worked. But, on ultimateguitar.com, if you search: The Challenge of Studenthood, the article is there. I have a hard copy in my song book that I read from time to time. Just to keep things in perspective.
I have a touch of PPD today (post project depression). The bench is all cleaned up, but nothing pending. The plan is to focus on playing for awhile. I am excited for that. These 4 string tenors are for me to play. Custom made, set up for me, the action, strings, and tuning. How cool is that, right? So Ive been doin chords and scales for awhile and picked some songs to work on. Alot of them are songs I learnt on 6 string acoustic. Im tuned Chicago, so the transition is pretty easy. Plus I found a chord chart. Here are a few Im working on:
Bad Moon Risin' & Lookin out my back door by C.C.R.
Blue on Black by Kenny Wayne Sheppard.
Free falling by Tom Petty.
Lucky Man by Emerson, Lake and Palmer.
Battleship Chains by Georgia Sattilites.
I am also lookin at Ain't No Easy Way Out, by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. The slide in that is crazy good. One of my tenors is going open tuning, but Im gonna get the rythum parts down before that.
On top of that, have the new looper pedal to learn to use. ( I think I can, I think I can) But musicianship before showmanship, I say.
Still miss not having a project going (hmmm. If I had a bass, I could put a bass line in the looper.....)
Next Time I will give my first impressions on PEAVEY's 20watt VYPYR VIP-1 Amplifier. Variable input amp for electric guitar, acoustic, and bass! Found it on the amazon $149. Dont get me wrong, I like my little 9v amp I built...
