No, Ive resolved myself too the fact, that I have every guitar I need and a few I don't need,
However what I do, need is room! I drew up plans for a studio a couple yrs ago, and I may get ta work on that by this fall, My present studio in my house is bustin from gear , I would like to have a couple quite booths and control room, and a large group area,aprox 25'x25' thats been my dream for several yrs, I can start buyin materials, and by this fall when its cool enough to get out,I can start. By next summer, be finished with the shell
I spoke with a drilling company today, about drillin a well I have to go down about 200' to insure water will never be interupted, Iam gonna use that for a geothermal HVAC for both studio and my house, and discharge into the pond , that way I can heat and cool both at a fraction of what it costs just for my house now, anyway I have some wiggle room now,with the extra cash!!

Congrats. I have an interview Thursday with a really great organization. If I get the job, it will be a major career change for me. The money isn't a whole lot more than I'm making now, but the benefits are excellent and the career path potential is much better than the (non-existent) one I have now.

And I have four festival gigs this month!

ya know Walter, I have been givin it plenty of thought, I have a space,,,my studio in my house now 12x20 its plenty large enough for what I want ta do, and I have been layin tracks all week, now if I have another person or 2 its kinda crowded , but thats not to often, and I have to heat and cool the space wether Iam in it or not, so if I build seperate space I will have to heat and cool it, more bucKs, so I may stay where Iam at!

601, do you have your music posted anywhere? It seems like most of us have a SoundClick or a MySpace on here.

Congratulations on the new job. I hope to be starting a thread like this for myself sooner rather than later. The commute kills me. Another $28k would be nice, but I'd settle for another $5-6k and not having to drive an hour to work. 8)

601, I listened to some of the samples on CDBaby. Nice stuff.

I'm not a betting man, but I'd put some money on you being a Mark Knopfler fan. 8)

ya know iam really not a big fan of many, I like a lotta stuff I hear, from all over the music board, some stuff by artists i like at at the same time some of the same artist I don't, I think the one that stirs me more than any is Albert Collins, his stage presence,and his humble approche, but was such a fine artist, his guitar lines ment somphin, not just notes, BB is my idol, however Albert is BB pissed off!haha, another is Alvin Lee,
