FUN !!!

So I got to use my new toy onstage last night (A Takamine EG531SC) ... There was a place that I used to go play open mikes ... they closed ... and moved ... and didnt get the OMs going again till this month ... last night was the first time I had a chance to go and since I had a new guitar ...

It's a much larger place ... with a much younger crowd ...

I got to play for about half an hour ... I went direct and the new guitar sounded WONDERFUL through a PA ...

WYSIWYG (one fellow was having problems breathing he was laughing so hard during my intro ... he must get the same spam I do)
Golden Age Of Silicon
Hides (killer version ... the new guitar sounds great in DADGAD)
Caution, Product Might Be Hot
Color Of Your Eyes (the only other performer, who writes very Dar Williams sort of minor key pop, really got into this one)
Trophy Wife
Low Self Esteem Talking Blues
Bang Your Bald Spot

It was a pretty rollicking show that was ignored by about half the crowd (which was small) ... but those who listened laughed ... liked the serious stuff ... and the cutest girl there came up after and said I was awesome ... man do I feel old ...

  • So yeah, that thing

    I am on DW, same name as here. I will, as I have done for months now, post there and have it drift over here.
