    So shall I bring a Hello Kitty guitar or my new Spongebob one? I think I’m leaning towards Hello Kitty.  
    We'll admire and covet either...

    I'm going to have my new PRS Bernie, the Raygunned DC Jnr, an acoustic in hardcase and Fender Blues Deluxe, plus pedalboard. We should have room for your Marshall, a couple/few guitars and whatever @pmbomb ; brings right? I can fold half the rear down to add space. 

    Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder

    I feel the need, the need  for CHEESE

    @darthed1981 ;;;   We might be able to work something out on Learning to Fly. I'm down for Guitar and Vox on that - we'll see how it goes. If we have a number of takes I'm happy to swap roles, and take up "guy standing in the background strumming chords" position. 
    Kind of you to think of it but not trying to steal someone's slot, just happy to play a few chords if anyone could use a "Bonehead" to fill out their track!

    Thanks though :)

    BTW - Woking seems nice from what I've seen so far.  I think I'm a way out of the town centre here, had a lovely day so far.

    I now have my own opinion on Chapman Guitars as well! (It's positive).

    Stoked about tomorrow looking forward to putting some faces to names and also seeing those of you I already know again :)

    FFS...

    Borrowed a car (from my Mum, of all people), all kinda set to got his morning to stay with @Handsome_Chris tonight and had to delay a bit into the day due to stomach bug.
    Went out locally in the car this afternoon and the autogearbox died.
    Recovered to garage after a sweltering couple of hours on the side of the road and they need to take it out to repair.
    They say they'll let us know next week how much work/cost is involved.

    There's pretty much nothing I can do now, I'm ready to throw the bloody car and my Strat in the air.
    I can't make it tomorrow.

    This is the last time I'm signing up for the Jam.
    Life just doesn't want me there.

    OBVIOUSLY I'm sorry!

    There's no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. We are all equal as human beings and you can be anything you want to be if you put in the time and the work. I'm not talented, I'm obsessed.

    Thanks for the offers of lifts.
    I'm in Liverpool. 
    Was going to bring Audrey with me and can't really go that far without wheels.

    My head is completely shot, stress has got me and my guitar is lucky it hasn't been thrown out of the window.

    Have a good day.

    Ed, keep the scarf it's a good one.
    I've got more.

    Sorry everyone.
    I'm not even going to attempt anything else this summer.

    What did you buy in Andertons @Darthed1981 ?
    A couple of those Tone City pedals they are always banging on about - a "Fuxx Fuzz" and "Comp Engine" - only tried them into an amplug headphone amps so far but both seem great.  I think pedals might be my new thing!

    Tried out a Chapman ML1 Standard (great setup from the factory, nice pickups, didnt like the colour) a G&L Legacy Strat in Blueburst (insanely pretty, something a bit off, possibly just the truss rod needed adjusting)  if anything the Chapman had nicer sounding pickups!

    Also almost bought a bass, but decided to give that another 12 months, focus on my guitar playing.

    They were very busy but the staff were great, running around to help everyone.

    It's a surprisingly small store, but I spent a couple of hours there.

    Can someone please step up for an attempt at the Comfortably Numb solo? Ive spent ages trying to get the drumming sorted for that so don't want it dropping at the last minute due to lack of widdliing. Only needs to be in the right key, or even an acapella version!

    Possibly, Ill just hit things until someone shuts STOP, or pulls the plug on the PA. Might be worth running through this tomorrow!

    Shouldn't need to practice pulling the plug more than 3 or 4 times.

    I am very out of practice but I guess as long as you aren't using any funky jazz type chords like, A minor I will be ok
