hows everyone doing? I've had a prety ordinary week so far. Hope it gets better soon. Just had some fillings so my mouth feels awful, hope this wears off soon.
Still trying to find a job this week.

First of the month busy, busy, busy... and creating more work by the hour.



I did get my new Dell M6400 laptop in today...

Fin... I don't think I ever answered your question about Dynamat reducing the road noise. YES! It has helped much more than I thought it would. We drive daily on an old gravel road. In most cars it is very loud, even in my previous two Sonatas I have owned. I can tell a very significant difference since I covered nearly the entire inside this time around.

Not sure if any ebay sellers are in your area with the same price I paid for Dynamat Extreme, but it was only $120 shipped for 36 square feet bulk box. I used 5 boxes overall. It's normally $4-500 per box.

Re: The SWAMP! - Volume Two

Hows everyone going? I have just finished assembling my latest piece of work:

The SWAMP! - Volume Two-1.jpg

Before I give it its final finish (which requires full stripdown) I wanted to test it and make the neccesary changes.

Heres a sound clip:

It is my first attempt at making a guitar, what do you think?

Cool...

My wife and I were listening and right at the very end we agreed it sounded like Pink Floyd when you were winding down.

Reminded me of space music or like Pink Floyd yes. Almost like it was speaking. Can't wait to see the guitar finished.

Re: The SWAMP! - Volume Two

Awesome playing, dude!

I've been playing guitar for about 3 days now, and I'm starting to appreciate the skill and dedication needed to get to that level. My fingers are raw and numb, and changing chords take a few seconds..

Re: The SWAMP! - Volume Two

Practice, practice, practice and soon enough it will become second nature. Just be sure to practise the right techniques from the begining, it's much easier than trying to correct bad habits later.

I remember those first few weeks, in fact there are still chords that take me a few seconds to get my fingers around. I only wish I could be more accurate with my playing, but unfortunately (due to arthritis) I can only play for 5 to 10 minutes at a time. This means I cannot dedicate the time I need in order to perfect timing and speed.
