low 40's last night. left windows open and snuggled under blankets. kinda hard to get up to go to the bathroom though !!!

a warm & fuzzy for ya

one of life's little pleasures - putting on a warm sweater right out of the dryer !!! mmmmmmm!!!!!!! now heading into the studio with a wee bit of scotch in one hand and a couple of song ideas in my iphone.

5 string blues

making progress learning on my newsed 5-string bass. getting used to having that big fat earthworm on top - most of the time. {8-) definitely going to replace the single coil with a humbucker though.

another milestone !!!

reached over 2,500 reverbnation fans sometime last night ! woooohooo !!!!

something old something new

bought a used five string bass saturday. working on trying to remember that the biggest, fattest string is not the e-string anymore! also the wider neck is taking some getting used to. always favored narrow necks like hofner's. of course, i will have to mess with the electronics after reworking the setup!!!
