The tears of a grown man

Filed under: — joe @ 11:55 pm

“Cliff” has been broken… Let me explain, I’m messing around on guitar tonight to figure out what to play tomorrow night in church. I sit down my Martin guitar (that was bought off of Cliff Young from Caedmon’s Call) and after a minute or so… I hear a loud pop. I picked it up and look at the bottom (toward the end pin) and I see a long crack from the bottom to the side. At this point, I’m sure that I am in some weird dream and will realize I’m in school with just my underwear on or something. No such luck. “Cliff” (it’s name) has been broken and will be going to my guitar tech to be repaired. Please keep him in your prayers (I’m only sorta joking about that). So yeah, the one thing that can bring me to tears is my very expensive guitar breaking… a sad, sad day. Hopefully “Cliff” will be back home and good as new in a couple of weeks.

In other news, my cd is at the printers and should be done in roughly 2 to 3 weeks. We’ll have it available for preorder sometime this week. Also, I’m booking shows for the summer (some with Jeremy Casella and Cason Cooley, some just me) and if any of y’all are interested, please let me know.

And I think that’s just about it for now… enjoy the rest of the weekend and if you have cable, watch the season finale of The Sopranos. It should be one heck of an episode.

I’ll leave you with a quote from the genius that is Homer Simpson… “I’m not normally a religious man, but if you’re up there, save me, Superman!” Classic.

Grace and peace

    Oh the tragedy! Dang cheap Martin guitars (yeah…right).

    And now that I’ve gotten totally hooked on the Sopranos, but without cable, what shall I do? A teacher at my school was my ‘supplier’….lending me the DVDs of each season. I’m in the middle of season IV right now, but in a few more days will be cut off from my supplier.

    I feel sick.

    update: i took the guitar to my guitar guru and it looks like it can be fixed without much of a problem. ift there was ever a good kind of break, this would be it. it’s pretty clean and fits back together nicely, so that is all good news for me to hear. also, sage… i always get the dvd’s of the sopranos, so when the time comes… let me know, i’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse.
