I won one, I’m lost for words, totally. I’ve never won anything before in my whole life. Awesome, I can’t wait! Thankyou to everyone who watched my video and helped me win one of these.

Custom Bass

Monday, October 15th, 2007

Well, it’s been a while since I posted. Life has been pretty hectic of late, with work, My Band (Ten Fifty)  making progress and with some DIY. This time, not of the synthesiser variety. In a previous post I mentioned I had purchased a bass kit and wanted to build my own bass. Well I […]

More Toys

Saturday, August 11th, 2007

Feeling Brave, and wanting another bass but not being to afford one, I decided to build one. A bit of shopping around took me to wd-music and their bass kits. It looked easy enough to build and the price wasn’t too bad. It arrived Friday, and I spent 3 hours assembling it. Although it arrived […]

Saturday, July 22nd, 2006

Well, I’ve been playing with it for over a week and I’m still having fun with it. This is my first guiitar in over 20 years, so maybe it’s just me or the hot weather (England is having a major heatwave at the moment) but it does seem to drift out of tune easily, it […]

New Toy

Saturday, July 15th, 2006

Yesterday (Friday) I got a new toy, it’s a Risa-Music Guitar Solid. Now, I haven’t played guitar in a *long* time (> 20 years) and then I was only ‘noodling’ with a friends fathers guitar, so my experience with guitars is somewhat limited, but I’ve got a few years Bass experience. So, what’s it like? […]
