Do not ever wander into music stores not expecting to find anything interesting. I made the mistake of doing that last weekend, and seeing something interesting.
I really never had any urge to buy one before. But then, I had never seen one in a store before.
So I thought about it for a week.
I bought a Chapman Stick
It's cool. Everyone should have one. Follow the link if you do not know what a Chapman Stick is.
Or take a look at the pictures of mine.
Of course, I can't play the thing quite yet. Sill kind of in the stages of figuring out how I want to tune it. It's a very old (July 76') 10 string. This should be interesting.
The fact is..
no matter how closely I study it,
no matter how I take it apart,
no matter how I break it down,
It remains consistant.
I wish you were here to see it.
I like it.
