Sweeney and a Harmonica

Most of our order from UKGuitarShop arrived today, including a harmonica. No, I can’t play, but it seemed like fun to try. I had one years ago, and never learned much, but they’re fun things to suck. Anyway, we sit in our office, computers on the desk, with Sweeney (one of our cats) usually on a cushion between the computers. She likes the hot air blast from my laptop. As soon as Sam started playing with the harmonica, she went loopy, running up and nuzzling her, and joining in with her own strange song. I grabbed my iPaq and started recording. It was damn funny…

Funny Shop Names

When you’re a shopkeeper you can share your creativity in a lot of ways, but what will really get you noticed is a seriously punny name. Wonder if North Yorkshire’s famous All Pizzas Great and Small made the book?

Many thanks to Darren for finding that link for us. :)

Another guitar review in the Wiki

After posting up the review of my new guitar, I decided to do the same with the rest of our collection.

I’ve just added a review of my ESP LTD M-50. And once again you have the opportunity to hear me play. :)

In other news, I’m getting a KH2 Relic! Yes, one of those gorgeous ‘CAUTION-HOT’ creatures played by a certain ‘CAUTION-HOT’ creature will soon be mine! How have I managed to afford one of those I hear you ask? Has my girl on the Temp Reg got me working 24/7? No. I got mine for 25 quid.

As promised, there’s a full review of my new guitar in the Wiki. Includes pics and MP3 samples of me playing. You lucky people. :)

If you have any Danelectro stories to tell, or guitar stuff in general to share, hop into the Wiki and join us!
