Get anything fun for Christmas?

My wife bought me a Digitech Trio for Christmas... though I didn't get a chance to try it out yet. Saw they had dropped the price and asked for one for xmas and Santa delivered. Hope it works like advertised, since I don't know any guitar players where I live and never get to jam with anyone. Hope to have some time to goof around with it tonight! It was a long busy weekend filled with family, food, fun... and unfortunately for one family member a visit from the EMT's complete with ambulance ride and 14 staples in the head.

Oh yes... My 5 daughters chipped in and bought me tickets to see "Satriani, Petrucci, and Collen" in Kansas City on Jan 25th. Not sure what to expect, but it should be a cool show.

Anyone else get something cool for Christmas?

Re: Get anything fun for Christmas?

nice gifts for Xmas! (I find that Phil Collen is playing often out of the scale when he's soloing on 1 string and it itches my ears every time...)

on my side I got a Fender tshirt, and the Sons of Apollo CD (with Portnoy, Bumblefoot, Sherinian) and a game of Finnish skittles. Maybe a new band for next year... that would be the best gift. I'm already in contact with a drummer and another guitarist.

Re: Get anything fun for Christmas?

My phone decided it had to do a factory reset as I was walking thru the gates at the game Monday night [oddly enough, my Granddaughters iPhone shut off with 60% battery at the same time]

Everything filtered back from the cloud, except I lost all my pictures, none of which were backed up ;/

I scooped some Ionizers and threw them in my RG8 +treble bleed caps. Feels like a whole different beast, i'm quite satisfied.

I stopped by Verizon to get them to change the alert tone on my texts [it's hidden] and all my pictures were in the cloud too!

Downloading now. Merry Christmas to me!

My wife has no idea what music stuff to buy me so she gave me a gift certificate for the local music store so I may put that money towards the MXR uni-vibe pedal - that would be cool =)

Re: Get anything fun for Christmas?

My incredible girl friend Kim bought me a white Jem! I had just bought the woody jem! She saw me looking at the white Jem and decided to surprise me.
I have been in Jem rehab for years, so the Woody was my first “Jem” in 10 years? Now I have 2! Fawk!!! Here we go again. 🤦🏼*♂️
Maybe just one more....Jem 7 string?, should have an original floral then...maybe the earlier model white Jem with ebony finger board... dang it now I miss my UV777GR.

What an amazing gift. And the fact it was a surprise too! Unreal. I was lucky to have my wife get me a 77fp for my 30th some years ago.


This year my wife got me Roland D-05 for Christmas, which I'm loving to death.
