Friday Night Blues & Beer

A new addition to the music room ... the Basement of Blues now has a solid foundation in the body of my new Ibanez Ergodyne bass.

She's got active Seymor Duncan pickups and a real thin neck for the small hand amateur player like me.

She has a Nice solid wood body with gorgeous curves all the way around.

I've got to develop some finger pickin string snappin and funk slappin chops for this new instrument while I feel my way around the fret board.

Already getting a whole new set of calluses after only a couple of hours.

And since I'm all into the this new babe there's no time to present a new beer for today. Instead I'll hand you all over to Darcey at Dust My Broom for the 141'st edition of Friday Night Blues and Beer!

So cheers! And let's have some fun......

Best little amp I've seen is the Peavey Delta Blues....

Blows any comparably priced fender completely out of the band hall .. more power... better tone... built to last.

I know lots of people like to badmouth Peavey ... but I speak from experience.

Sorry OMMAG, but Redux if ya got the extra cash put it on a Mesa Boogie.

Everything else is just fluff in comparison...

I've owned both tube and solid state Marshalls, Fender Twin Reverb (my favorite tube amp, i still wanna cut myself for giving it up), and a solid state Crate (crap).

Currently have a solid state Gorilla (12 watter and the first amp I ever bought - some 25 years ago now), and a broken Garnet.

I rented a Boogie for a month after I saw a guy in a local club mic up a 15 watt combo, it was was the most versatile amp I ever played through. Too bad I lost my job and couldn't keep it.

On the flip side, the band teacher at my school swears by Peaveys, mostly because his department is monetarily challenged....
