    You know how last summer I decided to finally become a gui****? That's coming along nicely TVM, as in two weeks I'm going to play a song at an open mic all by my lonesome, just me and the guitar.

    Well, that apparently jus011111111111.... Sorry, my dog decided to get into the conversation. Anyway, I decided that learning to play the guitar wasn't enough.... and I just bought a drum set! It's a red Pulse at the heart of it - toms, bass, and snare. I did have to buy some new hardware - high hat stand, cymbal stand, and as it turns out I had to replace the bass pedal. I had intended to do this cheaper, but I didn't consider how much the hardware would be before I bought the drums on Craigslist for 90 smacks. Spent about 250 in all.

    Though I bought the thing a couple of days ago, I have yet to put the thing together. I might have some time this afternoon before my gig tonight. I hope this experiment goes well.

    PS. The song I will be performing is Tim Finn's "Persuasion", and the guitar it will be played on is a Taylor 614CE. What a fine guitar that is.

    ... And since the last post a month ago, I bought a Mandolin at a garage sale for $25. I think I'm going crazy. It's actually a pretty easy instrument to play. The instrument sounds pretty good for a cheapie, but will need some nut filing to get it to stay in tune when a fretted note is played.
     
  3. Guitar, then drums.

    My friend, you are on a downward spiral.

    I think it is time some of us gave you an intervention :p


    ;)
     
  4. Good luck with the drumming... I've been wanting to acquire a small drum kit to learn how to play basic stuff on. Drummers seem to be the rarest commodity!

    At least 2 guitar teachers have told me; "drummers make better guitarists".

    But then again, some drummers ain't so good at keepin' time. So take it for what it's worth.

    Competency at drums and/or bass will almost always land you a gig. Guitarists audition always involve about 30% of any given region's population.
     
  6. I have a concertina that I inherited from my dad. Think that's worth a shot?
