I finished a 60 hr work week and it just about killed me.
Today I had the day to myself.
The kids were in school and Kim actually had a teaching day and aside from a stop at Mazda for the cars first service my day was clear.
The service only took about 30mins.
I have to say they are pretty awesome in there but we've never really had anything go wrong with our cars so it is hard to tell.
After that I whipped over to the States to pick up some guitar stuff that was waiting for me at the parcel pick up place.
I had ordered a new reverb pedal that will go nicely with my new amplifier ( CAN'T WAIT!!!! ).
That deal has been finalized and I just need to wait until it's built!!!!
The new pedal is a simply designed WET reverb pedal from Brian Neunaber in California. He makes wicked awesome stuff that can only be ordered directly from him.
I got turned onto this little pedal when I tried it over at my friends house when I was plugged into one of his boutique tube amps that didn't have reverb built in.
I was completely knocked out by it!!
I have since educated myself a bit and realized that reverb , for the most part , really kills the tone of the guitar and if used at all should place out front.
This is the opinion of many ...and from what I've heard recently I have come to agree with it.
Also picked up some Rolling Rock and filled up with gas. Good ol USA!!
Probably saved $60.
When I got home I hooked the Black Berry Playbook up to the TV and watched a Robben Ford concert in its entirety from Youtube.
Between Youtube and Netflix I may cancel all my satellite programming I honestly can't remember the last time I sat down and watch a regular broadcast.
After that was done I watched the U2 Slane castle concert. Great performance.
19:40 ..brought me back...remembering the days when I was about 17 yrs old...just discovered U2..playing in my first real rock band...all the excitement of having life spread out before me...full of promise..
Actually got a little choked up thinking about it.
Great day...starting to unwind and I still have another three days off .
Snow in the forecast overnight...bring it
