I changed strings on my SG12 yesterday.  Adjusted the lay and it really sounds and plays great. That, combined with using my MacOS software again (thru the Zoom TAC-2 interface) is really helping produce results.

I’m much more comfortable with EQ and reverb AUs than I ever could be with pedal-based.  Producing a subtly refined tone is easier for me in the AU world.

I enjoy composing pieces as much as I enjoy playing them.  Having my Sticks running direct through the Mac will make recording a much simpler process than before.

Changing strings on my Wenge Grand today.  As I recently purchased it used, I’m not sure how old they are.  I’ll also be setting it up as Matched Reciprocal.  This is the same tuning on my SG12 which should help as I switch back and forth.

May be moving back to software based effects. While my hardware pedal performs well, I miss the control and options available in the software. Plus, much easier to integrate into a recording workflow. (for me) Have a new almost zero latency interface on order. Looking forward to digging into it soon.

Great young band playing jazz standards in Courthouse Plaza today.

Am surprised that a co-worker has already agreed with me this morning and I didn't have to explain it more than once. (sky falling....)

Started working on chord changes to Leonard Cohan's "Hallelujah" today. It will be a bit tricky to build out the melody. ( So used to one-line melodies...). A few more pieces in the works.

My new Grand Stick arrived

It’s been from Washington state to NewJersey (seller sent it to the wrong address) and finally to Ohio, and arrived in great shape.  Still in tune also.  Looks and sounds great.  Letting it acclimate a bit before I dig in to a ‘get to know you’ session.
