    NGD: A Little Gretsch Sweetness

    So, apparently I'm into falconry now...White Falconry, that is. It seems I had a birthday last week and this little sweetheart came flying into the coop! It plays like a dream and the FilterTrons sound amazing.

    Funniest Moments in Television

    I hardly watch television, anymore. But, this one goes way back to the old Carol Burnett Show. The backstory is that Tim Conway told a different elephant story during the actual taping of the show than what the cast had heard during dress rehearsal. So, this is their first time hearing it...

    My local music store is declining...sad

    So, I stopped into the local music store where I always shop to pick up a rack-type guitar stand today. It's in a state of decline. The manager they hired a couple of years ago left. He was a high-energy guy who was really making headway to bring in good product. Before him, their pedal...

    Anyone play a Marshall DSL-401C?

    So, the title says it. I played one years ago and liked it, but it was a quick music store try-out. I'm wondering if anyone has one. I'd like to get your impressions of it.

    Now, HERE'S a piece of history...

    Today, the whole family went to an 1812 fair and battle re-enactment. There were a lot of cool displays and exhibits, including a couple of blacksmiths doing demonstrations. I met this wonderful gentleman who was playing some period songs, though not with an 1812 era guitar. As you may...

    We're puttin' the band back together...sorta, maybe...

    So, I haven't been in the gigging band for awhile. I've been playing other venues. But, I got an email from the female vocalist/keyboardist from the old band asking me if I'd play for a short, 40 minute gig next month with the rest of the old team. Well....SURE!!! It didn't take a...

    Things I Learned Playing Golf (or, Musings of a Newb)

    So, last weekend was my first attempt in my life at playing golf - or "Cow-Pasture Pool," as I call it. Aside from using a putter at the mini-putt, I have never even held a golf club. I also think a golf ball would be great to use in Death Match Ping Pong! Anyhoo, my son invited me down to...
