05/16/2005: "The price of music"
Another Monday is here...how did that happen? I had big plans for the weekend, primarily I was going to do some bouy racing on Sat. morning, but then it was raining and there was zero wind so not the best sailing conditions. Instead I played the guitar all weekend. The calluses on my left hand have reached impressive levels! I have a crappy $90 guitar from Costco, so I spent a great deal of time researching online for a new one. No, I don't have the money, but if I ever *do* get the money, I'll know more about what I want. I think I have it narrowed down to a 3/4 guitar made in Canada called the Seagull Grand Artist. It's beautiful and has (from everything I've read) an amazing sound. They quit making it but there are several mint condition ones being auctioned on ebay. I'm so so so tempted!
