Jaywalkers Jamboree

Myra and I, Fundamental Things, played at Jaywalkers Jamboree in Camrose today. The weather was fantastic today, very sunny and around 27 degrees Celsius. We haven't done any duo gigs for while, so it was fun and good practice for us today. I hope to be able to incorporate some new tunes into our repertoire soon. My new Fender Strat sounded and looked great!

Lately I have been running a lot, and it's been going great. I ran a good Half Marathon race in Red Deer recently, where I placed 2nd, some 5 minutes faster than my time in 2005. Running is good for my guitar playing - it keeps me in great shape and I feel more energized when I play gigs.

I have put up a new discussion board - the old one had problems with spammers but this new one looks and works much better. Feel free to join in and share your thoughts on guitars or whatever!

My friend DuhVoodooMan built a really cool tube screamer type of pedal, but with all sorts of options. Incredible pedal actually. I will write up a review of it soon, but I can say I am one of the lucky few who have one of these babies, the Zonkin' Yellow Screamer! (ZYS)

Lately, I have been using my Maxon SD-9, my ZYS and my Das Fuzz for dirty sounds through my Hellhound. I find that the SD-9 is really incredible, especially if I keep the gain down a bit. All these pedals mentioned do fantastic things, and my new Fender Strat make for a much better sound than I had expected.

I got a Squier '51 neck sent to me by a friend, and believe it or not - but I managed to get a crack in it! The holes didn't quite line up with the holes on my SX Strat body, so I tried a little to hard and 'CRACK'! I am going to have to get some glue and some hardwood to plug the holes and start over. Some friends sent me lots of good luthier info that I will THIS time...!
