I've been closing out multiple business websites and telling them they need to find another web person, because I can't keep doing them anymore...  :(

That's strange.  I don't know what the problem might be.  I had to log into GoDaddy today for a business website and didn't have any problem.  Wish I could help, Neil, but there's nothing I can do on your account...

Huh!  Neil gave me the link to the new site, and I checked it out yesterday.  Looking good.  But went to look at it again today and can't get there.  What do you think, Neil?

May/June ODC
« on: May 24, 2020, 11:50:59 AM »
Well, chappies and chappettes, after thinking long and hard, I have finally come up with a challenge idea.....

Sticking with the KISS acronym, since we have all been affected by this terrible virus, in one way or another, this months theme is just that.

A new tune about/related to said virus.

Any point of view that you fancy, such as, how it has affected you, or those around you. Your observations, feelings or thoughts. How it is affecting the world, the changes it will bring. Your anger at it's devastating effect on the human race. Your fears, etc, etc, etc......

Any style or format. Can be instrumental, if that floats your boat. Collaborations are welcome.

Let's give ourselves until the end of June or thereabouts, since we are almost at the end of May..... A final end date and time to be confirmed as we near the deadline.

Any questions can be posted (on the back of a blank, signed cheque) here.....

Sounds cool.

This weekend, I drank whisky and bought some equipment from Thomann. For some reason they have not sent a detailed receipt, so due to whisky I am not quite sure what I bought.  :o Well, it'll be a surprise then.

Spiral...I bought a CST-24T from Harley Benton (Thomann in-house brand guitar)  in early April.  Great service.  Delivered to Oz on 7 days and was even in tune when I took it out of the box.


I got my receipt  :) :o

Oh, nice challenge White.  I will try my best to join in.

I got my order confirmation too. Nothing crazy there. :)

Only 7 days to Oz! That's pretty amazing. 13 years ago, when I started ordering stuff from Thomann, 7 days was the standard to Finland.

How do you like the guitar?

Hey Spiral,

Its excellent as far as quality goes.  It is a different sound from my other guitars and I am still getting used to playing part of it.  The two humbuckers are more precise in how they project the sound.  Its a fun to learn a new guitar and best of all, it was cheap.  The shipping price was quite high though. 

If I had of bought the paisely telecaster as well (available at that time), the shipping cost would have stayed the same but I would have got the two guitars delivered.   Oh well.

I did have an "earth" problem on the Volume pot but after submitting a warranty claim, I just fixed it myself with a soldering iron.   The volume pot was not turning all the way to silent "0" even with full anticlockwise turning.  More like the volume from say "5" to "10" range.  A bit of Youtubing helped me sort that problem.

Dino,
That's pretty much my experience with Harley Benton. There might be some minor quality control issues, but with little luck and some tinkering one can get great stuff for a very low price.

I have a tune AND have just uploaded it.

It's (I think) my first ever instrumental entry in an ODC, and it came out of sheer boredom last night, with myself, lockdown and retreading old stuff and playing familiar patterns, instruments and sounding generally, like me.

I decided to do something quick and go for a cheesy sixties sound.  Not sure I got there, but it was fun to do something with very low expectations and succeed in achieving them  :D :D :D

Sadly, I think it still sounds like me......
