Made cracklins



I made some cracklins today. They are a far cry from Don's, Best Stop, Early's, etc., but compared to anything I can get around here (Dallas), they are awesome.

Recording today

I recorded some guitar parts for a new tune I'm working on. I took the rig in the garage so I could crank it up and get some garage ambiance. It came out pretty good, but not quite as great as I thought it would.

I set up both my Zoom recorders. I put one close and one a few feet away. I played some scratch tracks on my phone and listened through headphones. The process worked out well, but it's a lot of work to go back through the long audio files and find all the good parts.




9th grade was a banner year

I found this note book from 9th grade. Love the old "I Love Acadiana", K94, Romero Music stickers. What was funny is that it had tabs for English, Auto Mechanics, etc. The "Auto Mech" tab section was completely blank. Not one note. If you gook Mr. Phillips Auto Shop class, you know what I'm talking about. To his credit, I did leave that class knowing "generally" how an internal combustion engine works. The next year I took Woodworking, or whatever it was called. That was a whole new level of "Blow off class".
