Fun!

The joke in the paddock was that if anyone saw me carrying something even remotely resembling a tool they were obliged to knock me to the ground, remove the tool, and strike me repeatedly with it while repeating “no no NO!!!”

A good friend just offered to build my little practice room and take beer as payment. I dunno, the wind is kinda out of my sails on the whole thing.

Hilarious.

I'd go with that deal. Smile

I’ll chew on it for a bit. Maybe...

Meanwhile, back at the ranch: Loudness “let it go” for some good old fashioned hair metal fun. I don’t think I can handle that solo though, it’s pretty smokin’

I wasn't familiar with it so I checked it out.
Rockin!

What a great drum sound. The snare alone could propel that song. And yeah, quite a geetar solo.

Munetaka Higuchi was an great drummer who passed 10yrs ago on Nov 30. I believe I’ll raise a glass to the man on Friday. He was a Cozy Powell disciple, which I could seriously relate to because Blackmore’s Rainbow was the very first rock band I became interested in after the short but dark Peaches&Herb era.Blush

To this day I still listen to Ritchie’s stuff from 40yrs ago and think: “wow!”.

He really drew my attention when I watched the video.
So sad to lose someone so talented at an early age (to liver cancer).

RE: what are you playing?
There are a handful of measures spread out over several tunes that I know I’ve been playing “wrong”, so my mild ocd is forcing me to retroactively revisit these parts and basically go to war until I figure out the “right” way to play them. Kinda satiating, really.

But this morning I awoke to a seriously painful, locked up wrist, so I’m benched until this thing resolves itself.

You know how I know I’m becoming chronologically challenged?Sad

How is the wrist now, Sunset? I sure hope it is better.

And yeah, I like to play stuff correctly, especially when it is something in the classical realm. But even with good old Rock n Roll I like to do things correctly.

Thanks for the kind thoughts.Smile

Wrist is fine, but this borderline fanatical effort to get up to speed and beyond as quickly as possible is causing some musculoskeletal issues I can’t ignore any longer. Spending hours every day looking down at a fret board while learning new tunes has resulted in my inability to ride any more that a couple hours without considerable neck/trapezius pain. With a loooong ride to Deadhorse AK coming up, I’m going to have to cut back on the guitar time.

Dang...

I very much understand that. The older I get, the larger the penalty for staying rather static and/or working on a physical skill. Frequent movement is the solution.

The ride sounds GREAT. I hope you will be keeping us updated on that ride. When does it start?
