Guitarist Mod.

Edit: Said Mod, meant farkle...is there a dictionary?
This one is pretty technical. The backing on the sticky part was a bitch to get off.

So, if I had a nickle for every time I have had to fold up the cardboard flap of a matchbook to get my rock on, I would be riding a solid gold KLR. And my bike and I are very rarely parted. There are probably 400 pics in my apartment...hiding. But now I will always be able to find one, at home...or on the road.




Also works well for prying off the earth magnets I keep on my tank for toll/directions. Them things is strong. And girls like bikers and musicians, right?

OT

The picks are not in your apartment. They have been taken up by the guitar gods as offerings.

Seriously though, when the baby becomes ambulatory she WILL find them. The little ones have an affinity for anything small they can choke on.

Good to see a fellow player. I have a '62 Fender Jaguar, '72 Gibson SG, Guild D-30, Yamaha 12 string, cheapo Kay mandolin and banjo.

Seems I have more stringed instruments than talent :-0

Oh, I forgot the fiddle.....darn thing squeals like a pig stuck under a gate.

I hadn't thought about that. You're right...we better go on a pic search as part of the babyproofing.

My instrument collection has shrunk. I have an 89 Gibson SG, a yamaha acoustic, a flea market acoustic. Used to have some other cheap acoustics and a banjo.

Now you know what your next farkle is.

What's 'OT'?

I like to think of the pics assembling into some voltron-esque avenger behind the boxes I never remember to take out. But I'm pretty sure I have enough for a lifetime in the crack of my couch.

Wow. Given a million guesses I wouldn't have gotten that.

Straying is good...off the beaten path is where all the fun stuff happens.

Wait, Kawasaki should totally pay me to use that as the KLR slogan.

Don't get too excited about the check, LJ....I'm still waiting for my mod pay and it's been like years!









This thread was entertaining though.....

Hugs,
