Picking Up The Guitar

Before my boyfriend and I made it official we were the best of friends for about ten years, and in that ten years he learned how to play the guitar. He was a little shaky at first, but most people are when they pick something up to play for the first time, but he learned how to play very well within just a years worth of time.

Ever since he learned how to play, he has steadily practiced every day to be better then he was before. Recently within the last two months his guitar he had since he picked up a guitar, broke during our move into our new home. At the time we were a bit behind financially, but luckily I jumped on my laptop one evening and searched around on the net for a new guitar for him as well as a new and improved 1000 watt amp.

I remembered him talking to a friend of ours a few nights before about an Ibanez guitar specifically he wanted. I found one that I thought he might like, and it took no time at all for me to find one I thought would fit him. I ordered it that night, and when it had arrived at our home, I tucked it away until he had gotten home from work. When he got settled in I handed him the package and he was so surprised since there was no holiday or birthday coming up. He opened it and saw his new Ibanez electric guitar, and immediately got it tuned up so he could play. I am so happy I could make him smile so big and give the gift of playing more beautiful music.

Brian Baggett the Video Presenter for Musicians Friend Private Reserve

The term “private reserve” sounds so uppity, but in all reality anyone can purchase a musicians friend private reserve if you know what you want/need and you have the means to  pay for what most discriminating players and collectors are interested in.

I have been doing business with Musician’s Friend for some time now. Their website is way up high on my “Favorites” list and I don’t see it coming down any time soon. With Christmas shopping in full swing considering it is finally after Labor Day. The musical side of the family is always looking for new musical related items. Musician’s Friend has helped me figure out the perfect gift time and time again over the years.

The New Big Muff Power Supply

Because you can use a 9 volt battery or use the 9VDC adapter power cord, which is included, this is a good selling point for this big muff power supply that I have been eyeballing. I am almost done with my Christmas shopping. Only a few more items need to be ordered online and I can sit back and relax a bit before the holiday’s hit with full force.

This particular Electro-Harmonix Germanium 4 Big Muff Pi Overdrive and Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal is perfect for my brother’s youngest son. He is a very talented musician and I always try and encourage him in any way I can. I have paid for some of his music lessons in the past and he has always appreciated the love and effort. Since he is no longer taking any type of lessons, now he is looking for musical instruments and their accessories. I can’t wait to see his face on Christmas morning when he opens this year’s present!
