A dude I work with wanted me to come and play with his band. I hardly know the guy just from passing. They have a modern country (definitely not my style) cover band with a few rock songs (more my style) thrown in. There is already a lead guitarist so I'm rhythm. He's a young kid, senior in HS and he's pretty good. He started at a very young age. I went and jammed with them not knowing ANY of the songs they covered and picked up on them pretty easily. I didn't realize I was trying out but they said I'm in lol. Had first legit practice tonight and had a blast. These guys are a pretty established local band with gigs all the time so I'm pretty excited. I've played more in the last week than I have in the last year lol. :thumb:

Last night at practice my pickup switch went out on my epi. Go figure!! :laugh2:

I'm thinking a futura ;)

Half the price of the other one I liked and with the money saved I can buy a Marshall half stack.

I'm stoked man, I've had sweetwater on the horn the last couple days. I've never owned a guitar more expensive than $300 bones. I've heard a lot of good things about sweetwater and I haven't had any problems ordering accessories from them. I really don't want to go with GC or MF on this one. It's a special purchase.

Engel,

Congratulations. Just remember, bar patrons only really care about the rhythm, so you're more important that you thought.

nothing better than getting together with some cool people and gigging. I just recently auditioned and got into a local cover band that gigs a few times a month and actually gets paid. loving every minute of it.
