Now, I do enjoy me a bit of guitar. I love the different tones and vibrant timbres you can get from one naturally. But electric guitars can achieve even more odd sounds by way of pedals and extra equipment. One such item is a big muff pedal. This type of pedal has been in use since the 70's and is known as one of the best sound distortion equipment to get for guitars.
My Goals with this Blog...
I've never found myself to be an overly romantic person. Hell, the idea of rings sandwiched onto my fingers does not please me in the slightest. But I could not contain the slightest bit of daww when I saw a promise ring for her. At first I thought it was on about 'those rings'...you know the creepy ones that over zealous parents give their twee daughters.
I have always admired people who used a marching snare drum. I used to do high school marching band ages ago as both part of the main group marking on field and as a pit crew member. I always found the drum line so cool. They were at times considered the main back bone of the band (next to the conductor that is) that kept the spirit of the band alive. They introduced and lead out the band with their drum lines and did tricks on field and on the side lines.
I always love it when things move easily in and out of my drawer space. It's linked to my enjoyment of organizing things. I mean seeing fold in doors, adjustable shelves, ways to stuff things away in an efficiant and neat manner gives me the giggles.
I admit it. I'm not a fan of summer, but the winter is good to me - when I'm not freezing. I love huddling under blankets and sitting by cozy fires. But when I'm in a freezing cold house or drafty place I get so grumpy. Let's just say the cold and me are not friends. Then I saw this posting by Cozy Winters and wish I had some of their gear. I mean self heating blankets and jackets?! I knew blankets were are thing (by the ones I've ever had weren't all that good) but jackets can do it too? And their blankets look a lot more 'robust'? Like they are of thicker stuff than the ones I had as a kid. I may give in and make an order before the Xmas rush backs everything up.
I may have a lofty dream, but I hope to someday learn how to play guitar. I learned clarinet which is cool and all, but I just have a yen to pick up something new. I have browsed under the numerous things for beginners and find that a lot of stuff is geared for kids. Give me adult level stuff, teachers! It's okay, I would love to play beyond London Bridge!
I was looking around out of curiosity for more band equipment (I'm getting back into a music kick) and landed on MF Boutique's page with synthesizers. Now, these cool looking things so remind me of my childhood. At one point, nearly every band of that era was using a Roland and playing it with these spacey sounds that was so cool to my young ear. Never mind that was because the things became super affordable back then and so many bands snapped em up to play on.
