The Gear

The Guitar:


This guitar was given to me by a very good friend (the same "real musician" mentioned before). I'm forever grateful at this point. He used it professionally in live shows during his early career including an appearance at "The Whisky" IIRC. It's got active pickups (EMG I think).

I don't have an amp. I'm using the Lightsnake USB cable that I found at Target of all places and the amp emulator software Guitar FX Box.

If I keep up my ideal of 15+ minutes a day and I do see improvement, I'll probably put an amp on my present list. My short term goal is to be able to be a rhythm guitarist on a selection of songs by Christmas time. Ideally playing with my benefactor.
