dweez's new toys (Music edition)
« on: September 06, 2017, 07:23:37 PM »
Well, I've been debating this purchase for a short while now. I've played music for several years (trumpet/trombone/baritone/tuba in high school concert/marching band and guitar church and my enjoyment) and for the longest time now have only had a 12-string Ovation guitar that has been strung as a 6-string to play with.

I just pulled the trigger on a Yamaha SLG200S Steel String Silent Guitar Tobacco Sunburst. It might be more than my hobbyist tenancies needs but it feeds the "cool, gadgety" beast within.

Ordering it online would have cost $629.99 (why do they still do $x.99 amounts?!?) but I called directly and asked about a discount and got it for $556.54.

Now I just have to wait the 4-6 (excruciatingly long) days until it arrives.

It looks like a fish... I've never seen that instrument before

More "musicians" should have silent instruments.

I have some silent bag pipes... Want to hear them? ;D

Nice Dweez but can you play it? Didn't happen unless you video it ;)

I don't like this statement, but it's hard to argue the logic.

We'll see. :-D

It looks frightening to be honest.

I play the piano a little but tend to think the keyboards are poor substitutes for hammers and strings. In truth, that is probably an excuse I use for hitting the wrong notes as my Yamaha P150 is beautifully weighted and has a wonderful sound. If that guitar sounds a good as it looks then I dare say it's a bargain.

PS. I don't play wrong notes. They are all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

No true artist (pronounced AR-teest) is appreciated in his own time.

... yup. There it's "flipping you the bird".

Which again has all sorts of other meanings over here.

Do you play any musical instruments, christ? I would think you may know your way around a harp.

Just want to point out that the "bird" in question looks suspiciously like a "C add9" chord. Just sayin'.

Nah. It wouldn't be fair.

Yeah, probably more middling.
