New Arrival

Thursday evening I picked up a new baby. It's an early 60's Harmony tenor guitar. I've been wanting a tenor for some time, mainly just to be able to add the steel string sound texture to my shows.

I've got it tuned to what tenor players call "Chicago tuning" but ukulele players would most likely just call it baritone tuning. This allows me to use the chord shapes I'm already accustomed to, rather than learning a bunch of new shapes.

I'll no doubt put a more thorough posting up about it later (hopefully after fixing the "Publicize" feature on my Wordpress site) but I wanted to get the announcement out sooner than that.

(Sorry about the horizontal picture. Buffer doesn't seem to allow me to change that.)

I like odd bits like this.

last night I found out that, despite the nearly 5 pounds of other ingredients in the chili recipe I've been playing with lately, one teaspoon of the Habanero Garlic Pepper is just a tad too much.

still edible, mind you. but balancing on the razor's edge of too fucking hot.
