I Stand Up Next To A Mountain And Chop It Down With The Edge Of My Hand

Tomorrow I start my first day of actual work, no training anymore, it's all me. That's not really what I want to write about, but I'm pretty stoked to not have to be training anymore and start getting clients of my own. Honestly, the training was kind of bull, I'm pretty sure the only reason I had 5 days of training with three different Kins was because they get paid an extra $40 a day for training. But enough about that, onto the good stuff.

So what is the good stuff? I need to find a freakin' record player. I used to have one back in St. John's, but I didn't bring it with me because it was so dang big. Well now I have all these great records (ok, some of them aren't so great) but nothing to play them on. I was going to buy a Jimi Hendrix album off some guy on Kijiji the other day, but I didn't because I wasn't sure when I would be able to get a record player. In hindsight I should have probably just bought it since I don't know if I'll have the opportunity again. I really, really want Axis: Bold as Love. That album is amazing. Some very innovative ideas and one of his most widely covered songs "Little Wing." Personally the title track - "Bold as Love" is my favorite song. It's pretty simple, but amazing none the less. John Mayer does an awesome cover of Bold as Love. Other than that I really want Stevie Ray Vaughan's Texas Flood and Couldn't Stand the Weather. I'm not gonna lie, no matte how much I love Jimi Hendirx, I'll always think that Stevie's cover of "Voodoo Chile (slight return)" is better than the original (please don't kill me music gods). Jimi is a better showman though Here are youtube videos of both, make the decision for yourself.






Also, I have a chance to trade my digital recorder for a '79 yamaha RGX 211M guitar with a Floyd Rose bridge, or to sell it for $200 cash. Anyone know what I should do? Cheers.
