Hey again !

Most readers will now find me a gargantuan pain in the rear end, but I'm just very happy right now ! biggrin.gif

Two days ago we were leaving LA in a rented car, and I told my dad that I needed a thing to record my guitar playing for the REC programme. We stopped at the Guitar Center in Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, and I went to the second floor where the guitar "accessories" are found. I told the guy I needed a Line 6 POD Studio GX (which is what you guys on GMC told me to get), and then he said "You mean a toneport", and silly me said "Yeah" ... tongue.gif Of course, I didn't know he was talking of another model...

He then said that the Line 6 POD Studio Toneport had been discontinued, and that he would have to get me a Line 6 POD UX1 or UX2, for $150 and $250 respectively... I was going to get the UX1, as it was the cheaper one, but he had to find it in the storage area first ! biggrin.gif He descended the staircase and disappeared from sight, and came back with a Line 6 POD Studio GX ! biggrin.gif Obviously he had misunderstood what I told him, but it all ended quite pleasantly... We bought it for $100 + tax, and I just can't wait till I get home to start recording for the REC ! biggrin.gif We now just need a webcam (Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000), and eventually an amplifier that we'll buy back in Norway to avoid transportation issues wink.gif

Thanks a lot to everyone who has suggested the gear I should buy to get serious with the recording, and a big thanks to Marc_Maiden from Fremont who also helped me a lot in my quest finding the shops ! biggrin.gif

See you soon, and please comment ! biggrin.gif

Now we're in San Francisco... We just stayed in Santa Cruz for the night, so didn't get the time to buy any guitars... Still, I don't think I'm going to spend much more money on guitar, except for a new amplifier in Norway and a webcam here in California or Nevada (Las Vegas) ! biggrin.gif Thanks a lot, though ! biggrin.gif

Thanks, Santiago ! You can call me Alex to save time wink.gif I'm going to test the POD once I step foot on Norwegian territory, and I'll post a small topic to let you know if I have any comments to make, or if I need help recording ! smile.gif

Thanks Ivan ! Thank you again for helping me choose what gear to buy, it was truly helpful when looking for equipment in the shops ! smile.gif I'm going to get down serious with the REC, and I hope I'll make a couple of recording then.
