Occasionally
There is this voice (of sorts) in my head that occasionally tells me what to do. Once upon a time it told me to go into Wal Mart on Black Friday. I did and ran into the younger brother of my best friend in Elementary School, I had not seen him or his brother in 30+ years ... but ... first ...

I knew I wanted a new guitar, there is a very specific sound that I want for Cheshire Moon. That sound can best be made with a Stratocaster. I also knew that I wanted a much more colorful guitar, with one exception all of my stage guitars are black. So the intention was to buy an inexpensive Strat and do awful things to it.

I was heading to Guitar Center, since that is the place I frequently start such searches and I got a few blocks away and that voice in my head said "go to Pro Music" (ok, it's not really a voice, it's more of an urge). So I did, and there she was on the end of the rack. I played her for 10-15 minutes, but I already knew.

So now there are two pretty red heads in Cheshire Moon

Here is the one I met last night



And here is the more important one

What a beauty! I have had voices talk to me as well when walking past or into guitar stores :-\ Of course there is another voice from Sue going "put the card back in your wallet" :-D I hear you won't be at OVFF and sadly we will miss you.

There is a reunion of my old theater department from college. I'll get to see people I haven't seen in decades. It's the only thing that will keep me away, especially this year.

And she sounds as pretty as she looks. Just set up my gear and played a bit. I need to change her strings (very wimpy things on her that I would hardly call strings) and have my friend Dave set her up. But she's just what I wanted.

What a tragedy that you should have such beautiful women in your life.

I know, but I manage to suffer through it.

Both beautiful. Though I dislike my voice like that. It has a good end result but normally means ill be spending money.
