It seems that at times I get so focused on building a new effects pedal or amplifier that I spend hardly any time at all actually playing my guitar. Last Sunday Isaac and I finished recording our Christmas special, “Joy To The World.” I did the arrangement this year and chose to do it in a punk style since we hadn’t done it before. Isaac played bass and sang backup vocals while I played guitar and sang lead. It came out quite well. I did use my 5th Gear Overdrive pedal for the recording, which satisfied my electronics hobbyist needs, but most importantly I had fun playing. I need to play my guitar more often.
