    Practice? Write a song? Buy an accessory? Jam with a friend? Windowshop for a new guitar?
    Or was it one of those lost days when nothing musical happened? :eek:

    I learn the basics of about 2-3 songs a week. Try it out, see if I can sing it etc. many just get shelved after that.

    Actually pretty productive today. I started the process of insuring my amps and guitars finally. Going through Heritage, surprisingly good rates for great coverage. It’ll be nice to finally have the peace of mind that comes along with insurance.

    Learned the basic riff to Fast Cars by Tracy Chapman.

    Fooled around with "So You Want To Be A Rock 'n' Roll Star" and "Eight Miles High" by The Byrds.

    Browsed the web for an acoustic.

    Played several foo fighters songs, a bit of cure, some killing joke, and some magazine. All on a 6120 which wouldnt normally be my choice for any of them but i was slamming on a jet yesterday and i felt like getting a bigger boomier sound.

    One of those days with nothing else than 4 or 5 songs popping up in my mind. Some silent whistling, then.

    Just some practice. You know how you get all of a tune under your fingers except for that one part? Don't know if this is exactly guitar-related, but I also filed a case with FedEx about a guitar that they claim was delivered (it wasn't).

    Played my tele in the AM inside the house. I played my 6120, then my EJ Strat, then my Tele again in the afternoon in the backyard on a beautiful sunny day under the shade of our deck umbrellas.

    I used my Fishman loud box charge outside.

    I took a break when UPS came and delivered some strings and a couple more nut files to be used with the T-I flats 11’s I use on my hollowbody Gretschs now.

    Oh ya, this also came today, hi @thunder58

    Checked out GSI's B-3 Software - awesome!
    I had been using Native Instruments B4 for years till they decided to discontinue it.
    No way to get it to work on my new Windows 10 Studio machine so I had to find something else. GSI's VB3 II is great and very reasonable. So Great - job completed!
    I can also authorize it off line which is a big plus since every time I go on line with my studio machine Microsoft invades my computer and destroys lots of my tweaks.
