So my guitar class is a little frustrating, having to learn shit i already know, its like beating my head against a rock. But fortunately, there some things i am taking from this, and my instructor is cool and is giving me much harder (in comparison to what we’re currently doing) activities to work and practice on. So i guess thats cool. i also recently found out im not alone in the Martin World. It appears Pat Liu owns a martin, which is cool! Though its a shame, because such an experienced guitarist should have a nicer model, because his is half the cost of mine, and made literally 90% of plywood. Stratabond neck, Mahogany HPL Pattern textured finish back and sides, Mahogany HPL pattern textured finish headstock, and richlite fretboard (which is basically paper.) Which basically means its not even made of wood, the only thats (natural) wood on the guitar is the sound board, which is made of sitka spruce, which is a great wood. Now my Martin has a stratabond neck, so by no disrespect is his guitar bad, (i mean, its carrying a martin name, you know just by that its not a bad guitar) just its sad that its basically all HPL or plywood like wood. In the end its just non traditional and having first hand experience with it, and after doing some research, it can hold its own ground, is quite good, and desputedly better (stratabond necks specificly) in certain aspects compared to certain woods. But you should have at least 50% of your guitar made of traditional woods, especially the body, because thats where you want the highest quality to produce the highest quality sound. Again though, its martin, so im sure it still sounds great. /breathes. Now that my rant about how the materials of pats guitar are sad, im a switch notes. So my gran has also offered to pay for 2 classes or none at all next semester if i get all A’s. This is kind of rediculous, because not even emma can get straight A’s. So how am I EXPECTED to. Especially with algebra. Im really rooting for a high grade, but when it comes down to it realistically, i just want to pass it. Because if i dont, i dont graduate. Talk about pressure. Im not worried about any other classes except for this, and she says if i focus most of my effort into this class i should have no problem. But im sorry, i do as much as i can, study as hard as i can, until im sure i have gotten all concepts and sat down with my teacher. But when it comes down to taking quizzes and things, if i make a few mistakes, i can flat out fail the course, because iQ is so shitty at setting up how a Math course works. Because its so exact, if you do anything wrong, like just clicking the wrong problem in a multiple choice question because it looks almost exactly the same as the others. you pay significently for it. Fuck at one point last week, i was trying to play that game where you look at a series of pictures and try to find which one was different because they all looked the same. (the answers were equations) and its by simple mistake, can you loose SO many points. and because of this they should offer redos on quizzes. But no. iQ is fucking gay, and you only get one shot and then you die. BLEH. so i was gonna get my brother a sweet gift, put aside some money for Cataclysm and get some new clothes, but now it looks like i cant use my check i just got…. because it will inevidably pay for lessons that my gran is unfairly making me work for. Talk about trying to discourage something im passionate about. I get she wants me to succeed, but thats just topping off the amount of astronomical pressure im under right now. Im gonna talk to her about it in the car ride up to antigo tomorrow, so i’ll update you tomorrow night on how that goes.

god i hope not
So today i started learning Scales! I have been debating doing this for while, since scales bored the living shit out of me in band class, its actually a lot of fun! Especially since im starting off with blues scales. So its way more interesting then your basic scales, because i can improve off them, and mix and match pieces of the scales, and so far its looking pretty good! I’m also watching Resident Evil: Afterlife, which is actually pretty good considering that last two weren’t that amazing. Always fun to watch Milla Jovovich kick some ass i suppose. i’ll update ya later!
Watching true blood season finale again for the second time today with corey. It’s ok, i hope season 4 is better. Also super procrastinating doing school right now. i dont want to do shit man.
Emma and Brennan Day! Guitar, True Blood, music, things and much fun to be had. We did some Psych, now i will work on business and law while Emma looks sexy. I’m also listening the the most epic playlist of Pandora radio. I used “telepopmusik” as the base for Pandora to work around and it has given me the most EPIC music ever. I’ll update in a little while.
