Nice Ax Peter !! nothin' like that PHAT sound from an LP , humbuckers rock !!!
So my main amp,is 120 watt VOX with beaucoup built in effects which i augment on the CLEAN channel thru a BOSS GT 6 Guitar effects processor ( its a huge stomp box) which can " model" a huge array ( 30) of various amps and has 340 different guitar effects which can be used independently OR combined in various effects ( think like some stuff Rush does with weird sounds ) . That is wayyyyy cool to do
When the Queen gets,on my case about OUTPUT hahahah i play strictly thru the GT 6 not patched thru the VOX AND use my headset .....makes for a happy Queen and a well fed Warpy
Life ain't a dress rehearsal: Spread enthusiasm , avoid negative nuts.
Funny how many us are dusting off the guitar. Me too.
Last night was the John Prine tribute concert for Blue Toes and the dog. I've got a Takamine N-10, red cedar top, mahogany back and sides. Unusual for a Tak in that it has no electronics. Bought it used in the early 90s and it has settled in very nicely. Need to play it more. If things get really rough, I'll start up the banjo again.
^ Nice work, Brownski. Love those Estwing hammers, I have one of the lighter versions with the leather handle. It is a joy to use.
In other news, I sold two two canoes today, paid in full, from the comfort of my own own home. I am pretty much the only person actually generating revenue for our company right now, even if it is not a lot in the big picture.
People with money on lockdown are bored and ready to spend.
I saw one of those happen on the Hutch years ago, I was lucky enough to get by it before the police showed up and stopped traffic. The Hutch is crazy. At least they eliminated the toll booths years ago but the drawbridge near Co Op city was always a wild card.
Got called in to supervise a repeater antenna replacement today for a water utility telemetry system...man it felt good to get back out there even if for one day. We did our best to stay apart from each other which can be difficult on most job sites. These trades guys are pretty amazing people - wish the public knew more about the work they do, even when the world goes to crap.
Although my business deals with utilities (water, wastewater, electric, gas) and is deemed "essential", field work mostly dried up as clients were trying to avoid non-critical work. Schedule is starting to fill up again as clients seem to be slowly moving forward with projects and upgrades. I have to work in Delaware on Monday and my client sent me an "essential vendor" letter to show the DE State Police when they pull me over as soon as I leave I-95. NY plates seem to be poison these days.
Anyway, I wanted to share some positive news that will hopefully become the norm sooner than later. At some point, the nation needs to get back to work.
[Brownski - that was a hilarious story. World has stopped but only in NY can you still be stuck in traffic LOL!!!]
These folks in Syracuse have been.
https://jmawireless.com/prevail-ny/ They did it in a couple weeks. There's an embedded video of the Doc and engineer discussing it.
The folks around here built the Erie Canal which was a break through (no pun intended) at it's time before formal engineering schools existed.
As for me Groundhog Day number whatever, just checking news and science lit. If ya type scholar into google it'll take ya to google scholar which searches science articles and patents for free. Access to journals is pretty much wide open for now. Used to have to pay or have account for access. Or before internet, go to the stacks of journals in the library.
