Current mood: Kinda like when you accomplish something, but you
Okay, I was diggin' in my closet about 1 to 1-1/2 years ago when I stumbled upon what i realized was a replica of a guitar I saw in sweetwater. This guitar looked kinda old .(My older brother owned it, and before him, my uncle) This guitar has its battle scars and its dings and scratches, but it (once) was a new guitar. This guitar is probably older than I am. My uncle said it was a yamaha guitar. It looks just like the hummingbird guitar by gibson/epiphone. It is in the red heritage sunburst color and it has the same design on the pickgaurd. The guitar needed a nut and a saddle, don't forget the strings. Today, I was at Zeagler's in monroe, and bought a saddle, and a tremolo arm for my strat w/flames. Then I bought strings at wal-mart. I put the saddle on, and realized it was too high. So, I took my wood carving set and lowered it about 1/3 inch. I then carved a nut from a piece of cedar. I put the strings on and tuned them. The guitar has a good sound. There is only one problem, though. The guitar has a habit of buzzing b/c it has its original tuners on it. (They are loose, therefore when the guitar vibrates, they buzz.
S'all I got, I'll put pictures up tomorrow, maybe even an mp3 of it.
Don't you hate it when your small e-string breaks where the ball on the end is located? I do. Both of my strat copies' w/tremolo bridge (Peavey Raptor and S101 Stratocaster) e-strings (1st Strings) broke. The Peavey Raptor's e string broke as soon as I pulled the guitar out of the case. It broke by the ball on the end. I thought to myself, "Oh well, I still have my S101 Stratocaster." This was yesterday. Today, I went to give a couple of my long notes a vibrato w/my tremolo. The e-string broke. The string broke at the exact same spot as my other one. I think I'll write a song about it, record it, and send it to the string company. (On my acoustic guitar b/c my small e-string is broken on my electrics)
Around the beginning of April, I went to Wal-Mart in Baton Rouge. I looked in the clearance, and saw three First Act amps. They were the same model (M2A-110) but with 3 different prices. The list price was $59.99. The first 0ne was @ $40, the second one at $25, and the third at $15. I bought the 3rd one. It was in a dirty, banged up box. It had its rolling stones 12-month subscription missing, but that's okay, because I liked the value of the amp. I plug some headphones into the input jack, and I speak into them. The amp had good, clear tone for a 10-watt amp. It also had 3 sound knobs for low mid and treble. The amp also has built-in overdrive. The overdrive has a gain knob for intensity. This was a really good deal overall.
At school, today, I got into a fight, (technically it wasn't a fight) with one of my loser friends. He charged at me after calling me a little bitch. He managed to grab my neck, but he lost his grip when he met my arms of steel. He hit the ground, so technically, I won.
The whole previous week I've been gone to centrifuge in Jonesboro Arkansas. It was an awesome experience, and has helped me get closer with the lord. I stayed there from Monday-Saturday. I met new people whom are awesome. I went there a regular joe, And I came back as Hawk-Man.(Pm me and I will explain) I also got a phone # (High Five) and a few e-mail addresses.
Post more tomorrow,
I was walking around wal-mart today, and I found an rca cassete tape recorder for $22.45. I bought it because I wanted to have something to record with. My parents don't let me record on the computer. So I dug around and found a tape that was mine from first grade. Side a was full, but side b wasn't, so I've been using side b to record on.
I've been looking around for a new guitar to get a new kind of sound. Well, about 2 or three months ago I went to the local pawn shop, and saw many strat-copies, one bass, one LP copy, and about 5 acoustic guitars. I go around to the back of the store, and I see an old looking 335 copy. It was in a red burst finish. It also had a vintage looking tailpiece. The whole guitar looked like it was fairly old. The brand name was lyle. I went on the internet that day, and looked it up. It turns out lyle guitars were made in the early 60s to the late 70s by some company that turns out to be the parent company of gibson. This company also manufactured guitars under the name of aria, univox, and epiphone. Well, today I bought the guitar. It sounds great, has a great feel to it, and has most of its origtinal hardware. There were a few holes where the pickgaurd was removed, but it is a guitar in great shape for something that is vintage.
Right now I'm in my 6th period class. It's ASO. ASO is short for administrative support occupations. It is a business class. It's me and about six other people. Yes, I go to a small school. Today is make-up day for people who didn't finish everything. That's pretty much it.
Current mood: If the xbox was a person, I'd strangle it and then
I was playing my big bro's 360 when all of a sudden, the P.O.S. starts making a scratching noise. And now the disc won't close on it. Worst of all, my brother's going to be pissed because he payed $600 when the elite first came out.
