    They're nice guys. Even prettier in person too.

    Dang. I feel myself falling down the EP-Pre rabbit hole. I was listening to some clips of the + version. If I had my wallet on me at the moment, it would probably already be on its way to me. :p

    Yeah, Mark is an awesome player. The last time Sonvolt came through town, the band minus Jay played a set of classic country tunes (as I recall). I used to follow him on FB, but I think he quit posting. I was going to see them again, but I think I missed the date or it's in the fall.

    I had a couple of bandmates who got me hooked on the Blood Oranges. I wish Cheri Knight hadn't totally dropped out of the music world.

    This is why you have your card number memorized. Or maybe that’s just me...

    The other guy (Chris Frame) was a perfectly good player, had some great looking guitars and did good work, but there was just something about the choices Spencer made, and he never seemed to resort to the tried and true slide cliches. Just really enjoyed his parts.

    I've been posting gear on Craigslist and Reverb and it just occurred to me that I didn't even consider posting anything in the Emporium. I think I've become jaded...

    I've known Mark for I guess about 8-10 years now. I met him online before I even knew Creston as he used a few of our pedals at the time. Finally got to meet him in person the last time SV rolled through town. He and Anders Parker came to shop and played on a bunch of stuff - man it was so much fun just watching that dude noodle away riffing on what the pedals were giving back to him. He's got as very cool way of phrasing lines (as does Anders, BTW). Really funny guy too...

    Forgot to mention, I noticed every guitar player last night had some amp-sized or bigger flat surface leaning up against the backs of their amps. Not sure I’ve ever noticed a whole crew doing that.

    Maybe it’s to allow the drummer to run his iems at a reasonable level?

    I was showing him how to juggle effects without a looper.

    I don’t LOVE a single dirt pedal I own. I think there are few left I haven’t tried. Lately haven’t been turning them on much. The K Master works so well I can just turn the gain up on the Cub. But that really won’t work for the mega-comeback band I’m about to go on tour with.

    "Mark I noticed you have a volume pedal on your board, you know you have a knob for that on your guitar right?"

    Well, I'm a grandfather! Daughter and grandson went home, today, and all is better in the world.

    You’re too immature to be a grandfather!

    Congrats, Grandpa John!!!
