...and I'm an addict. I'm the classic case of addicted to buying gear and never really excelling on anything more complex than fingerpicked acoustic.
After 20 years of lust, I just bought myself a 2008 Les Paul Standard. Can't believe how much better it sounds than the other electrics I own. So now I'm here and I'm loving what I see before me. Can't wait to get involved and become part of the community and take this journey together with all of you.
There will be a slight pause however while I repair my ring finger, lol... 10 years of fingerpicking folk and laid-back jazzy stuff on acoustic hasn't called for a lot of extreme bending. The new Les Paul however cries out to be bent and made to wail. Unfortunately my excitement and delight were too powerful in overcoming the associated pain and I've managed to grow one amazingly large mo-fo of a blood blister way down deep on the bone of my ring finger. Ouch!
So yeah, practising major scales at the moment sounds like this - C - "Ouch" - E - F - "Ouch" - A - "Ouch" - C. My wife keeps laughing at me and saying, "Why don't you just stop playing?".
I just can't.
Loving the site and will get some stuff up in REC land soon.
