Sorry for not keeping up normal updates. I've been in a bit of an anti-social slump lately. I've still been stopping in daily and checking out all your blogs and stuff, just haven't had much to post about or say. I'll be spending some time away from home the next week or two, but i'll still be checking in as much as I possibly can! You know that feeling where you feel like you're trapped? Thats how my state of mind has been lately, so I have to get out of my house before I go insane haha.
I've also been messing around with a cool program called Guitar Rig. Guitar Rig 3 to be exact. A friend told me about it and I figured I'd give it a shot since my normal effects processor is busted. I normally play a Jackson Kelly JS30KE, pretty much the cheapest Kelly you can buy, through a Digitech RP90, one of the cheapest effects processors you can get. It's served me very well for the past year and a half, but the plastic casing is busted and a friend of mine spilled something on it so half the buttons are unusuable.My guitar still has the stock pickups but i'm hoping to replace those with some EMG's or something when I get some money together. Anyways, Guitar Rig works great if you don't have the necissary hardware to get the sound you want in physical form. It's a bit costy, and it requires a relatively high-end sound card to work properly, but if you have the right requirements it can pretty much give you any tone you want to have. Even with stock pickups it can confuse me into thinking I have a 2000+$ rig. That's a good feeling to have when you're a guitarist.
Anyways I may be gone for a while but i'll be keeping up, I promise :P
