Do you know how to play?

My sister has a couple, I think I mentioned, and I gave her a couple guitar songbooks last year.  Popular songs, real rock hits, you know?  I don't think she's picked up either once.  I'm garbage with musical instruments (I think all that time drawing ruined me for having two hands doing independent, coordinated things) but I wanna try, if she's not gonna bother, lemme borrow one!

Yeah, I've been playing since Jr. High which is where I had my first Guitar Class. A while back (15 years ago or so), I had to sell a lot of my equipment as I needed cash. The only ones I kept (because I couldn't sell) were a couple of beat up pieces of sh*t that no one would want, let alone pay for. Since I've gotten back into playing in a big way, it was time that I treated myself to a nice guitar, more specifically a Les Paul as I've never owned one before. As you know, I have a thread devoted specifically to Rocksmith which went a long way to getting me to reconnect with playing again. If you have a guitar on hand, definitely pick up a used copy of the "game" on eBay. This is essentially a guitar teaching teacher right in your own home and cheaper too! If you pick up the game, make sure you're getting one that comes with the cable as you will need it to plug your guitar into your PC.

Here's a quick shot of my new guitar. The images don't do it justice. Using a pocket camera and the flash pretty much washes out the grain and the Reds are not as Red IRL. It's a more subdued Brownish-Red, which is what I was going for. I still need to get a Hardshell case. I will take more pics using a better camera with natural lighting down the road and hopefully I can replicate the actual look with future pictures.

GORGEOUS... makes me drool. I'd love to have something like that to pick up and play.

You know what would look freakin' awesome is a case that has a complimentary color to your guitar.

I remember this guitar and case popping out of the screen when they were showcasing it. It's a scene from Rudderless

Yeah, I'd like what you're thinking. But as of now, all I see on eBay are cases with grey interior. I'd go for something like the one in that pic. That Lime finish on the guitar is also awesome btw.

The green and purple makes it look like a Hulk guitar, which is cool.

And Chip's new guitar?  Dang, son.

Here's an update. I originally sought out eBay looking for a Hardshell case, but the average cost, no matter who the seller was, was around $130. I'm not spending that kind of money on a f*cking case!!! Long story short is that when I took my Bass down to the local Music Store to fix a buzzing sound, I asked them if they had any Hardshell cases for Les Paul's and sure enough, they did. $50 out the door. Major score! Suck it eBay!!!

I've seen Marina play before, but not sure if I've ever posted any of her videos here. Anyway, enjoy her awesome cover. She is damn good.

Ibanez Iceman **** Mirror

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luLk0kvAABw

I'm currently looking to get another guitar or two, but they are pricey as f*ck and most likely will never come about. I'd like to get an Ibanez Iceman **** Mirror Top, but the sticker prices rangers anywhere from $3k to $15k. So, yeah. I can just dream on that one for the time being. An Mirrow alternative to that of course is the Schecter ZV Mirror Guitar (see previous post). That runs for about $800. That is if you can find one.

I'm also interested in getting Thayer's White Lightning Signature Series guitar.

Axe & Punisher Bass

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAvKVwWhzdo

Also on deck to upgrade my Bass. I love my beat up piece of sh*t Bass, but it's time to upgrade. Dream would be to own a Punisher and Axe Bass, but those are way out of my price range for the time being as well. So, looking more for a "standard" bass instead.
