Good morning, all!
No Ted, I didn't take a lot of pictures.
Figured ppl could look on the web and see much better ones than I could take.
Look up Shred Necks, advertised as a portable practice/warm-up guitar neck. Saw those.
NAMM was, as always, a visual and auditory sensory overloaded event!!
Plus lots of walking and standing.
We always bring fold-up chairs and use them.
Heard some great playing.
Saw some friends.
Played a lil.
Tried to find some bone bridge pins for my guitar but only found plastic ones.
Will order the bone ones online (recommended by our luthier, who examined the guitar last week and changed the strings for me. He attempted a glue repair of part of the binding but I will need to go back at a later date and have him do a more extensive repair job on it. Can still play it).
Stopped by El Torito on the way home, ostensibly for tea and a snack but really to use the bathroom!! -- and they were having a bassist workshop/demo.
Some very talented fusion players.
We didn't stay long, as we were tired...
Guess we're not dyed-in-the-wool musicians, who stay up till 4am gigging...
We DO have Day Jobs!
OK, gotta get back to what I was doing.
Dh wants to arrive by noon, so we can jam a little.
Check-in is 4pm (remember Steph??
Y'all have a good one!
This morning I am finishing packing and then we will head out to Long Beach to stay at the Queen Mary X2 nites.
We will be jamming (and hopefully relaxing some!) on board/in the hotel.
I just paid the bills (in preparation for being gone).
