Here I stand, 16 years old, with a gift from the t
Yes, I was lucky enough to get a tasty piece of tonal-steak for my 16th birthday.
What is it you may ask? A vuvuzela? A talk box? MANY BEAUTIFUL WOMANZ?
BUT it IS a Blackstar HT Club-40 Combo amp. The tones are orgasmic. I can do away will all my distortion pedals and such now. I absolutely love the thing, though it's ungodly in it's weight
I'll try to post some pictures for tomorrow, but here's a demo or two so you can (kinda) get a feel for what it sounds like. I really want to record with it, so we'll see if I can't work up something to upload.
I just thought I'd be fun and update you guys on my life. Hooray for no life.
Anyway, musically, I've been doing a bit of shopping. And for my birthday (the 25th, my 16th, who needs a car when you have gear? ), I'll be getting a nice GAS worthy item. Not that I'll tell you guys what it is until I get it, because I'm an ass. I will tell you I'm extremely excited, and it'll be a beautiful addition to my arsenal.
Sorry about not logging on much, been spending too much time with schoolwork. My grades have skyrocketed though, so there was a payoff.
I've also joined a band or two, the first ones that are actually serious and the bandmates can actually play. Imagine that in America
I got past a "playing-block" that I was struggling with during the summer, and have finished learning such songs and leads like Beautiful Death, and The Face Of My Innocence, by actually playing jazz. Who knew one or two jazz songs could improve my sweeps and string skipping. How fun.
Anyway, I miss you guys. You're cool, and I'll be on more. I mean it this time.
I apologize for not being on basically at all these last few weeks. I've been extremely busy, and once school started (meaning weekends for UG and fun ) my grandfather was hospitalized for 2 weeks before dying. So in other words, haven't thought about going on UG very much since then :P This isn't a sympathy blog, just saying I'll try to be on more and such. And sorry, if there are any comments I haven't responded to yet. I'll do so now.
Mine was going great. But something is really "grinding my gears". And here is what it is..
I can't stand it when people make their status something that either: tries to draw attention, or trying to get sympathy. Maybe you guys know what I'm talking about.
To this person I'm MAINLY talking about: You are 13 years old. This is life. Yes, it can suck sometimes. But you don't need to get pathetic about it, make it your status, whimper and complain about how bad your life is, and expect sympathy for it. I'm a sympathetic person, but seriously, if I see one more god damned status saying "(insert name here) " or "I hate my life" or something, I will lose it. This isn't Facebook. Go complain there. Your life is fine. This is a community of musicians. So leave the crap grammar/spelling, whining, and complaining ANYWHERE BUT HERE.
I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. Thanks for reading.
I got it yesterday. I can say that it is IMO, better than Twilight Of The Thunder God, and is obviously more brutal than it. The Youtube uploads do it no justice, the mixing is great, vocals are great, riffs are amazing, everything is perfect. Get it..now
