I’m going to stop writing this stuff at the end of 2021 or one post into 2022. I’m getting pretty bored of writing this stuff. I live it & regurgitate it to you & I’m pretty “simple” to begin with. Eat, exercise, eat, shower, eat, play guitar, eat, play more guitar, have supper, watch TV, play guitar, sleep & repeat.
I’ll buy the PRS S2 McCarty 594 a soon as I have the cash. When I order the PRS S2 McCarty 594, I’ll have to wait at least 6 months for it. Then save and repeat but the wait might not be as long? I’m excited to get any guitar but when I have the money (in a few years) & order this guitar, it’ll feel like another level! I’m not undermining the importance and flexibility of other guitars I own, but this PRS S2 model is said to be THE guitar in the PRS S2 line!
After a TON of thought, the Schecter Tempest, although I REALLY liked the majority of what it offers, might be too similar in sound with a few less features compared to the McCarty 594. I’ve also realized that I’m not a huge fan of the Stratocaster body shape, so as I was searching throughout last week & this gem kept showing up & won me over with a MUCH more different sound & MUCH lower price tag (less than $650 after tax), despite this purchase being many years away.
Go ahead guitar gear heads, it says “Squier” instead of anything else. I’m not paying a ton of cash for a bigger brand name. I’ve got a Fender & a PRS S2, good enough for me! Hopefully the split coil on the McCarty 594 is as good as they say. A full on hollow body will be completely different from ANYTHING I have and be a great ending chapter to my guitar purchasing…if it’s still around.
I tried to force ‘guitar mojo’ on a Stratocaster, but that never works. Had to be exactly what I wanted because I don’t want to shop for another guitar. Guitars give me FOMO, fear of missing out, since I don’t have a disposable income for anything let alone guitars, so if they go out of production before I save the money to buy it, I get kinda sad. I guess these purchases are more of a hopeful occurrence in the future.
Other than it being very cold in Regina this week, it’s been a good satisfying week of exercise. Some ‘communication breakdowns’ getting all of my refills from the doctor to the pharmacy, but we got it figured out by the time I needed everything.
The Covid active cases are on decline throughout the province of Saskatchewan since January 12th. As per the restrictions, nothing changes until further notice on February 19th. I guess that’s fine, I would prefer tighter restrictions but I’m not a politician?
As I’ve said many times before, I really watch a miniscule amount of TV & I missed “The Ellen Degeneres Show” on her birthday show. New DVR, so I don’t know if it was me, a user problem, or if something went wonky with the DVR box?
Right now I’m playing a handful of songs by “Pearl Jam”.
I’m continuously running through these “Stone Temple Pilots” song as well & other stuff too. Keeps me busy.
The music I like is mostly from the 1990s, there’s usually some “Soundgarden”, “Alice in Chains”, “Rage Against the Machine”, “Audioslave”, & always “Foo Fighters”, etc. being played on guitar here. Then as far as a little bit of metal goes “Metallica”, “Megadeth”, “In Flames, “Trivium” and eventually some “Lamb of God”. For the 7 string it’s “Trivium” a dash of “Dream Theater” and I like coming up with stuff on the 7 string.
We’re watching TV Thursday evening. Kim picks out a documentary & instantly grabs her cell as usual, & it drives me nutz! I said to her, as I always do “You’re not even watching your show?” I get the usual reply from her “I’m listening”. Then I caught her with “But the show is subtitled and in Swedish?” BOOM!
April 30th marks the 3rd album titled ‘Typhoons’ from “Royal Blood” who released a video for the title track!
