I was messing around in my new closet rig tonight, finally learned me a cool song by brilliant Aussie band The Butterfly Effect. The guitarist Kurt Goedhart uses Marshall JCM 800’s for just about everything I think, so I dialed up a nice 800 sound in Guitar Rig and played along.
I just had a fancy idea. A problem that I face with playing guitar for the fun of it is that I usually don’t have much time. Even 10mins is better than no guitar for 2 weeks at a time. But living in an apartment means there’s no space to leave even my POD set up. So if I want to play for 10 minutes I need to allow for 20 minutes to set up and pack up. And usually 10 minutes playing time turns into 20 anyway. Then I’m late for whatever it was.
