Good on ya and good luck, mate.Originally Posted by tim290280
Rocky: Yes. Don't you enjoy special hugs with the missus? It's much better than when they want you to stop watching the footy and do some chores.
Glex: Yep guitar and girl. What more could a man want? I'm trying to offload my Epi 7-string Flying V and my first electric so that I can buy a Smartwood Les Paul Studio (failing that I'll bump up to a Studio Plus that has cooler finishes). As for the girl..... well she wants something sparkly for her finger.
hey Tim, just checkin in.. nice log bro.

Rocky: I just get an image of dozens of kids running around with mud on their hands trying to slap the guitar. Thats why you need a man's room. Sort of like a games room, except the TV is designed for optimal football watching, it has a comfy recliner directly in front of said same, it has your home gym, guitars and amps (the bigger and blacker the better!!), and of course all the music that is designed to raise test levels. This room is strictly off limits to anyone other than men and strippers.
Natureboy: I'm sure Rocky didn't abduct kids from schools to have them annoy him whilst playing guitar.
Serb: Thanks. I try to keep it interesting...... when I actually get a chance.
Glex: Yeh the 7-string really is a teenage malcontents instrument of choice. It screams heavy and depressed. Either that or jazz/thrash virtuoso! I find the extra string easy enough to handle but I just don't use it that much. Being on a V I tend to think it has passed the angry adolescent phase and is not versitile enough.
I like the Smartwood LP, as they are sustainably harvested, and have that nice natural finish, plus I bought my brother a LP and they were the best sounding guitars by far. Though I've read that the modern LP's tend to vary a bit in quality so I have to play them to find one I like, hence the fall back of a Studio plus.
As for the shiny things; I tried to give her a fishing lure and it made her sulk. I guess I'll have to find a months wages to blow on something she won't even wear (she doesn't like jewelery, but wants a ring! Go figure!). Are you going to take her shopping for one, or surprise her?
Today was acoustic day
A maj pentatonic scale
A min pentatonic scale
E min scale
E maj scale
Jangly open chord changes
Here Comes the Sun - Beatles
Take a Picture - Filter
Outside Woman Blues - Cream (although was done by someone else first...)
Babe I'm Gonna Leave You - Led Zepplin
Tangerine - Led Zepplin
Patience - GnR
Gone - Tea Party
It was a good session, though had to trim my fingernails again so that my fretting hand could play properly. Nothing too complicated in there as I felt mellow. Tomorrow I'll wail on my electric.
Nice training day. My set for the night included Norwegian Wood, Friend of the Devil, Knockin' on Heaven's Door, various Tenacious D songs, Put Your Lights On, House of the Rising Sun, and Hotel California.
I think I'm going to take her sister shopping for the ring and surprise her later. I think they'd both like that.
Natureboy: Guitar hero? I hope you don't mean the game and rather are complimenting me!!!
Eric: I don't have a set list, but I do have some favs that come out regularly. Stairway is one of those songs that every kid plays in the guitar store, so its best to know it and not play it! I keep forgetting the second part of the solo though.....
Glex: I think Kielbosa Sausage has to be a must know on guitar!! Yet to learn Norwegian Wood. Also a big fan of "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd. Plus a few exotic things like "The Badger" by the Tea Party.
Rocky: Only know two Satriani songs, and only parts of them at best! Too much guitar wank involved with those guys. I mean who can be bothered getting the wammy bar so precise to get that bouncing effect happening on the phrase in "Surfing with the Alien"? (something that always comes out muddy when I try!)
Okay onto the legs session:
Standard Tim stuff where I spend 15-20mins pissing about doing hip, knee and preporatory stuff before getting to working sets.
Hammy curl (altered dorsiflexion of foot on descent)
Forgot to do calves again. And as Evil points out it shows in my physique! They are half and inch smaller than my upper arm (should be roughly the same).
Then went to quizz night, got drunk, and came second. We bombed in the final two rounds after leading all night. Still got a swag of stuff as the top 3 got the same prize packages.
