I haven't been posting much about it, but my guitar learning is coming along pretty well! This is the riff from Judas Priest's "Breaking the Law". (I should clarify that this is the entirety of what I know from that song).

Woohoo, my new guitar input arrived! I took it for a quick spin and the sound quality is noticeably improved over the old one, everything sounds crisper and clearer (old was 16-bit/44.1KHz, new one is 24-bit/96KHz). This was paid for by selling some of that funny money that Keybase gave everyone a few years back, turns out it's actually worth something now!

Okay this seriously rules: my guitaring is going well and at the moment I'm practicing some power chords, and have been just using the metronome in BIAS FX Mobile to keep time. I remembered out of the blue that GarageBand has a "virtual drummer" thing where it'll automatically play a whole drum kit for you with all sorts of different styles and presets. BIAS FX can run in the background while doing this, so I gave it a go and it's SO MUCH FUN! Way better than playing along to a metronome. 🤘🏻 (Yes there's a handful of cocked-up chords in there where my fingers didn't quite get to the right place).

I'm suddenly realising why guitar picks come in bulk packs. I was wondering why my picking wasn't sounding quite right, then noticed how much had been worn off the point of the one I've been using since I got the guitar a few months ago!

You'll have to speak up, I'm playing a guitar.

It's here, and it looks amazing! Noticeably lighter than the old one, and much easier to press down on the strings too.

I've decided I'm going to learn to play guitar (again), but am going with a not bargain-basement-rubbish guitar this time. Just ordered this bad boy, an Epiphone SG Standard in ebony.

We down to the Mall today to get Guitar Hero 3 for the Xbox 360, then thought, wait a sec... So I ended up with this instead! It’s a Fender starter kit thing. Comes with guitar, practice amp, cables, strap, electronic tuner, guitar stand and case, and a Getting Started DVD. I figured instead of spending $140 on a video game of guitar playing, I’d spend a bit more and learn to play the real thing! This whole package was only $400. (Although the DVD is actually excerpts from the full DVD, which I also bought). \m/
