cool fall night

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!!!

sunday afternoon chill

celebrating a good weekend with a cohiba and matusalem 18 yr old rum. life is very good indeed.


revisiting my roots by listening to miami sound machine, buena vista social club, tito puente. love the syncopated percussion !!!
