Have been playing alot latelly, so my fingers hurt at the moment. Had to rest my fingers today.
So, I took my Ipod and started walking towards the wood and rivers. I was all alone, just walking around in the woods listening to AMAZING norwegian folk music. This is amazing! I guess walking in woods/mountains and stuff would be my favorite thing to do, except for guitar of course! smile.gif

Just curious about what everyone at GMC does other than playing guitar? smile.gif I guess I will hear alot about fishing biggrin.gif

Listen to this while enjoying the pictures I took today: http://youtube.com/watch?v=UvBFdEiZwFw

One of my favorite thing beside guitar is to rent a boat, pick up my acoustic guitar, and go fish in the lake,...playing guitar until a fish comes biggrin.gif (I cant live without a guitar besides me tongue.gif )

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

Well in the winter when not playing guitar I'm on snowmobile. There are some great trails here in Labrador and lots of nice powder to play in....and a few hills to climb! I also play hockey.

In the summer it's baseball and a bit of fishing. I also do a lot of bike riding...again the trails. Just, in the summer bears are a problem on those trails not so much fun running into Yogi and Booboo on a trail. (but it doesn't happen that often)

Other than that I just spend time with my dogs, usually at the beach, and hang out with friends.

I sing a lot when I'm not playing guitar (and when I am haha).
Skateboarding is fun most of the time (when it's not 40 degrees C out)
I watch WAY too many movies for my own good.
I go to concerts/shows as much as I can (WARPED TOUR in 8 days!!!!!!)
I play poker with friends pretty often
I go swimming once in a while
Bowling is always fun when I can afford to go.

When I'm not playing guitar or doing one of the above I'm usually working or attending classes.

Walking around , although where i live there isn't too much to see sad.gif cause i love photography and the forests and lakes and stuff, i wish i lived in BC! or Switzerland or anywhere else with mountains. And then i like to swim(racing). Other than that i listen to music, doodle with bass and drums and hang out with my band and my friends. and work sad.gif
