Guitar string set a month club Electric only, but the $1/mo option looks like a good way to build a good supply of spares

netbooks as a DAW

I set up a 9" asus netbook with guitar tracks pro and m-audio input for use as a DAW

  •  not so much that it can be done well, but that it can be done at all
  •  recording station with fair amount of fx that can all fit in a gig bag, with a couple hours worth of true record anywhere capability
  • not a magnetic drive in sight, all solid state.
  • haven't really had a chance to put it through paces yet
  • keyboard is tiny, and sound quality needs some work.

Jay Turser JT139

Picked up a Turser JT139 -- basically a Gibson ES135 for about $350 -- sweet

Never had a semi hollow before - very nice for unamped noodling

Harmony Central

I've been using this site for years: It has tons of stuff, but I use it mostly for user reviews of instruments and equipment. It's a good centralized place for the big name brands, but also some lesser known brands. Reviews tend to smack a little of 'buyer's bias" but it gives a good snapshot overall

practice log: winter hibernation continues =(
