Isn't that the truth! I'll go weeks without playing the X20, then when I makes my heart, ears, fingers, and belly (from the rumble) happy too. Pretty special to me.

The only time I go weeks without playing the X20 is when we're away from home and it has stayed behind.

The X20 is my favorite for a pure acoustic sound.

I got my guitar room set up again, including the Play Acoustic, which TC Helicon said they "couldn't duplicate the problem"... interestingly enough, it is not cutting out. They must have done a factory reset on it, because all the guitar tones and harmonies I had set up on it were gone. It took me an hour or so to fuss with it and get it set up for what I like. I used my X20 through all of that. It is a fine line between too much and too little on the vocal harmonies. When I have a guitar tone I like, I set that for global and then make adjustments on each guitar instead of getting into the menues on the Play Acoustic again.

Just as an observation, the X10 (level 2 pickups) gives me plenty of plugged in options, but the X7 with the B-Band still just sounds great plugged in; that little guitar makes me smile.

With other moving back in stuff to do, I will get the Spire Studio going again tomorrow; I'm looking forward to swapping some files with my keyboard playing friend.

My wife came in while I was messing with stuff and asked, "How's it going? You need a couple more guitar holders on the wall. I will fill holes and repaint if you're OK with making space for a couple more on the wall."

Yes, really. She likes having a project. Probably why she agreed to marry me all those years ago. ;)

I went in for total hip replacement surgery on Friday; less that 24 hours later, I was discharged from the hospital. Less than 48 hours later...

Yeah, it hurts. No, that isn't great posture. Playing for a few minutes was a nice diversion.

The physical therapy starts tomorrow. I think I need a nap.

That's great, Jim... looking fine! Wishing you the very best. :)

Happy recovery Jim! Wishing you all the best.

I see you still got your no slip hospital socks on, I still have mine too. Hoping you have a quick recovery !

Guest 928 04-28-2019 02:55 PM

So, did you get a few bone saddles out of the deal?

zeeway 04-28-2019 04:38 PM

Good healing vibes to you, Captain. Could be an opportunity to write The Hip Replacement Blues.

Guest 928 04-28-2019 06:16 PM

Blame this on Zeeway, he started it.

The Hippie Blues
The Hipster Blues
The Hip-a-Long Cowboy Blues

Kinda gruesome thought, but I can relate. After a craniotomy in 2012, I asked the neurosurgeon if I could have the mass that he removed. My intent was to show it the business end of a 12 gauge as revenge for all the trouble it had caused. They would not release the tissue, citing it as medical waste.

Get well quickly Jim. It sucks right now but you'll be better soon and it will be worth it in the end. It's good to see you playing already and getting healing kitty aura from Rufus. :up: And I have to share a sardonic comment by my wife: "You seemed so sturdy back then. Had known I was going to keep you all these years, I would have sprung for the extended warranty".

Wow Capt. Hope you heal quickly and get back on the road and back to full guitar playing mode!

steelvibe 04-28-2019 09:10 PM

So I guess no Elvis gyrations anytime soon Jim?

In all seriousness I wish you a speedy recovery and hope you feel better very soon.
