    When moving (and a being the owner of a toddler), guitars are the first thing packed and last thing unpacked. So tonight is the first time I've touched any of my guitars in well over a month....possibly approaching two.

    Got the accoustic out now. Yikes do I stink.

    I'm having to revert to Bon Jovi, Dead or Alive.....(the beginning is kinda fun to play...

    Very nice. I have a martin D15 with a big wear mark under the pick guard from too many years of playing on the road.Being hauled around in a bus is'nt the best thing for em' either.

    Bruce Springsteen, Devils and Dust.

    Double drop D. If you really want, I can find the chord progression somewhere.

    I really haven't even picked it up since it got really nice outside. I've been more interested in biking and the associated stuff that goes with it to play. Probably once the winter months roll in, then I'll consider getting back onto the axe and strum a few through it. Maybe I'll work on some more Guns n Roses and AC/DC.
