I See The Real, Concealed In The Day’s Bright Lie
Ahh, day off #2 started well. I slept in, which is nice. This recent illness knocked the wind out of me even worse than strep did. I haven’t slept this much in awhile. Of course, everyone here has been a little exhausted lately, so I think it’s just in the air. Anyhow, when I got up I went for a nice long walk down the seawall, then up through the old city quarter, then up past the other side of Terminal, then back down to Front Road, then up to the Timmy’s before I ran into Music Maxx. Wow. They have two amazing guitar rooms. They have these crazy pink Fenders (one is a Stratocaster and the other is a Telecaster) that are both neon pink with candy-colored paisley patterns on them, covered in sparkles *lol*. They had a really beautiful, pinstriped Les Paul, and a starter kit for kids that was heart-shaped. Their Acoustic Aria guitars are $100 less than the ones at the Pawnbrokers (the pawnbrokers sell new and used musical equipment). They had the cobalt blue one there for $99.
I picked up a 1/4"x1/4" 10′ male to male guitar cable, ordered in some sheet music, bought some blank tabs, got some picks and priced out an XLMf to 1/4" male 25′ cable for the Shure mic, as well as that sweet Samson CO1U USB condenser mic I was looking at for my podcast, and studio recording. It’s pretty excellent. They sell new pickups. and pickguards, mic-stand pieces, cleaning kits, keys, cases, mic diffusers…
They had an SE brand condenser mic for $65 I was considering, but I’m not sure if it’s USB. That will likely be a purchase reserved for after the purchase of my new computer. I need the condenser mic, a spidermount and a diffuser screen. My guitar uses the Artiste D’ddario Classical Strings.
