How I got my dream guitar!
The first time I saw this brand of guitar being used by John Mayer, I said to myself that I had to have one. But after learning about its price and its unavailability in our region, I had to settle for something else. Still, the Martin Guitar brand lingered in the back of my mind, I just want to get Martin guitars!
To cut the long story short, after a few years, a music lover that lives abroad became my friend. He was a fervent supporter of local music, which included my own songs. And so when he was going back here for vacation, he asked me if I want to get a guitar for cheap which he would then hand carry for me. I was shocked at finally having the opportunity to get my dream guitar, so I took action and hunted through all the music stores and auction sites until I found what became my first Martin. When he got here, we met up and I got the guitar from him, and it hasn’t disappointed me even once – and it has been my faithful axe ever since.
Now that I have multiple guitars, maintaining them has become quite a challenge, merely changing the strings regularly has become quite a task, and not to mention expensive at that. This led me to look at other more expensive brands of strings that lasts longer. Many are suggesting that I try Elixir guitar strings, they say it lasts for months and retains the brilliance that other brands easily lose. I’m planning to give it a try this year and see how it goes.
Writer for a Music Website
My current job is writing content for a guitar website. I have been playing guitar for years so this job is perfect for me. I get to learn about the latest musical instruments and accessories. I get to review the latest software and apps related to my niche. I get to listen to YouTube videos and watch performances and reviews online.
Anyway, this is my second year working as a writer. And I’m looking forward for more instruments and products to review. I hope I can get my hands at this cool pair of headphones – beyerdynamic dt 770 pro at guitar center. I heard this is a good quality headphone and would like to try it for myself.
John Mayer and Katy Perry are Officially an Item
It’s official. John Mayer and Katy Perry are now an item. Saw a photograph of them at a Rolling Stones concert where they looked very much in love with each other. According to the reports, Katy was even heard introducing John as her boyfriend.
Based on John Mayer’s track record with women one can’t help but wonder if he’ll dump her sometime near the future. Some of his previous flings included Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and even Taylor Swift.
But if their romance blossoms even more maybe they’ll even perform on stage together. Surely that would be enough for their fans to jump over a stanchion or two out of excitement. Anyway, I hope for them all the best.
Aside from having the right guitar, effects, amps and cables, aside from knowing the right notes to play and when to play them – I also worry about the right attire when performing for gigs, specially paid ones. Its an integral part of a gigging musician’s daily grind.
I have a variety of shirts covering casual, laid back and even formal attire like the ones found at scott kay mens. The only thing missing are hiphop and dancing attire which I hope I would never have to wear.
