Guitar names

Current mood: thoughtful

I've decided to name my guitars, well... I'm never gonna have kids so they can be my babies instead lol! I've already decided to name my electric guitar Elle (named after the Heroes character that has electric power). Still gotta think of a name for my acoustic though. Gotta be a boys name. Any suggestions?

New home

Current mood: cheerful

Moved out about a month ago now and haven't been online since 'cause I haven't got the internet at my new place. I'm back at my parents right now stealing their electric and phoneline to type this lol! It's an awesome new place, right in the centre of Torquay. Neither me or my partner have rented anywhere away from home before though, so it's a bit scary, but cool aswell. Anyway just thought I'd let you all know. TTFN.

Eeeeeeeep! Bang!

Current mood: ecstatic

I'm so excited right now I feel like my head is gunna explode!
Today I got one of my 21st Birthday prezzies early.
My Ibanez GRG 170 DX in jewel blue! It rocks big time!
Oooh it's so lush! I'm fighting the urge right now to stop writing this just so I can go and caress it again. I think a happy dance is necessary at this point. Indeed, yes yes, I dance! Woohoo!

Girl's going electric!

Current mood: chipper

Ok, so at the moment I only have an acoustic guitar but, my 21st Birthday is coming up and my Mum said she wants to get me something special I'll always remember. So, as you've probably guessed I've asked for my first electric guitar. Oh yeah baby! Rock on! I've been wanting a Gibson sg for ages, but lets face it, Gibson guitars are expensive as hell! So i thought how about an Epiphone sg instead... Well, I went down to my local guitar shop (Soundpad) yesterday to try it out, and you know what... I didn't like it one bit! I mean, it's a great guitar to look at, but to play... not so good! The strings sorta rattle too much off the frets, particularly the Thickest E string, it was really annoying! Also, as you may have noticed, I am a girl, a very small girl at that, and I haven't got disproportional massive hands to fit around the Epiphone sg G400's massive neck. I kept hitting duff notes when i was playing 'cause trying to get my fingers in the right place to hold the chords wasn't easy. Anyway... in the end i went for something completely different *drum roll please* the Ibanez GRG 170 DX! Everything about this guitar was perfect for me! It's lush too!

Quitting guitar lessons

Current mood: blank

Okay, so I'm quitting guitar lessons. Why..? 'cause money is becoming an issue. I'm still gunna continue playing my guitar, it's just that progress might not be as quick as it was now that I'm gunna be teaching myself. I have a grasp of the basics at least

Projectionist in training for Merlin Cinemas!

Well.. as you've probably guessed from the tittle, I'm now a projectionist in training for Merlin Cinemas. I had my first shift in the projection room last night. It's gotta be the coolest job I've ever had the privilege of getting! I've been working at the cinema for a month already selling tickets, drinks and popcorn out front, but this is what I've been waiting for! Kick ass!

Sick of it all!

Can anyone recommend some decent films to watch. I'm sick of watching pretty much everything I own at the moment. It's getting that way with my music aswell. Just want something new to entertain me, then I'll come back to my old favs as always i suspect.

Shpadoinkle day!

Current mood: chipper

Looks like life is on the up for me. I replaced the broken string on my guitar today, and I've managed to sell all my gardening equipment. Yay me!
Just need to sell the van now.

I've just spent the last hour playing on my newly fixed guitar, so now I'm all chipper!

Suddenly life ain't looking so bad anymore.

No.. no.. please no!

Current mood: distressed

I'm on a bit of a downer at the mo. I've had the worst luck this past week or so. It started last Tuesday when I was driving back home and my van just died on me, coasted to a stop and ceased to be. I called the RAC and they took 2 hours to get to me, and when they did get there it was only to say that they couldn't fix it and all they could do was tow me home.

Then Wednesday.. my GGran died and I had to travel up to London for the funeral which was Thursday morning.

Friday.. I realise I can't afford to fix the van or in fact do anything and am forced to sell the van for parts and all my gardening machinary which I keep in it, and declare to the Inland Revenue that I have had to shut down my business.

Today.. I go to play my guitar to cheer me up and relieve some tension and snap my thinest e string.

Anyone know what song this is from?

Current mood: annoyed

Just reading through a guitar magazine and found some Snow Patrol stuff that's been tabbed out. There's about 3 different songs in here and 1 of them I instantly recognised as Chasing Cars, 1 of the others I don't know, and the other I know but can't remember what it is. How annoying they forgot to print what songs they where. They remembered to do it with all the other artists stuff. Anyway, if anyone could tell me what it is I'd be grateful.

repeat each section once before going on to the next.
