Mama got a new guitar


When I was sixteen, I got a dog the same way. Unsuspectingly I walked in to "look around" and fell in love. It was a similar feeling yesterday when I picked up this semi-hollow, tobacco-washed, Ibanez guitar. It just felt right.

It's also my first-ever guitar purchase. Since I started playing guitar at 15 years old, I've picked on the borrowed guitars of my brothers, my father, and supportive boyfriends. The electric-acoustic Fender I've been playing for the last 10 years was a freebie won at a raffle.

It feels like a new beginning for me. One that involves another crippling purchase: a killa amplifier.

Congrats on the new love in your life. Now you'll have to post a clip of yourself playing it and singing. Xander's a little disappointed with the lack of kwips this morning.

Oh NO! I'll have to correct that.

Great idea on the guitar kwip. I'll hook it up tomorrow.
