I work with high school aged students all day. It's not my fault that my maturity level stoops to theirs every now and then.


Speaking of high school...some group is doing a fundraiser where they play "party in the usa" by miley cyrus on repeat, extremely loud, at lunch, until they raise like $300 or something.

Guess who has an hour of lunch duty everyday.

Dang, bard. That's rough. Bet they don't teach you to deal with that in teacher's college.

I'm a firm believer in "different guitars like different strings."

Oh and Party in the USA is a horrible song to have on repeat. I'm not a music "elitist" or anything, but songs like that always get annoying when played back to back. I would go crazy if they did that at my school.

My school did that a few years back to raise money, except we play music between all 4 classes to give like a 1 minute warning, so the song played 4 times a day for months. can't remember which song it was.

For sure! I'm of the same opinion. If you like the Martins, try the eric clapton signature martins. You may be pleasantly surprised.

1st Part: that totally sounds like a joke a lot of my friends would make ironically
2nd part: that sounds like it's painful.

I had a feeling when I saw a thread entitled "we love hardwood" that it would be this...I don't know why....

and just interjecting a random question: anyone have any advice on College Auditions? Any pointers, advice, etc etc? Just wondering. I've got my University of Southern Maine one friday, Berklee on Saturday, and then Capital University the following saturday.

so they torture the kids with addictively shameful music until they give up the cash? I think that would work 99.9999% of the time

I played my first Cole Clark today. It was a Fat Lady 2 with electronics. Definitely one of the sweetest sounding guitars I've ever played. Great guitar.

Hey there, old-timer!



In other news, I have been trying to satisfy a raging case of GAS for pedals and amps and such lately. I have effectively now spent $2655.32 on my pedal board.

I am selling my Hughes and Kettner amp. I bought a Fender Blues Jr. NOS. I'm going back to the basics on the amp and batshit crazy on the pedals.

Oh and I also bought a Takamine EG-544SC last month. I didn't have an acoustic-electric anymore so I figured I need one. I've always been a fan of the Takamine acoustic-electrics in a bang-for-your-buck outlook, plus this one is pretty and I got a great deal on it.

Anybody got any cool stuff lately?!

That board better be 80% boutique at that price!

I upgraded my standard strat to a deluxe strat, but that is pretty much it. Not a lot of cash flow around here at the moment as I'm working for free.

Hey everyone, it's been a while for me, but I've come back to the guitar. I recently bought a used Garrison G-20 [pics later] and I'm picking it up from the shop tomorrow morning.

Hope to become a regular here, how are you all?

They're a mysterious bunch. I even heard one of the moderators is from this strange island in the arctic called Canadia or something.

Welcome back. I look forward to having some more thoughtful contributions.

The only really cool thing I've got recently is an Ebow. I hope to be getting a big muff soon. I got some recording gear though, so I'd say that counts. And I actually changed my electric strings...for the first time since last July

Maybe I've met him, there are only a select few tribe which have big enough waterwheels to produce the amount of energy to run these computers.

Ebow's are so cool! Just wish they weren't so expensive. It would be fun to play around with ... actually I played a Godin Fretless 11-string last weekend and I was blown away by the violin-like sounds produced with slides.

If I had the money...

Btw, how do you multi-quote on these boards?

I have no idea how to multi-quote. I usually just click the quote button, copy and back up and then quote the other response. Then I paste the first one.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the Hard Wood, Long. (failed pun? )
