I’ve just got something in the mail that brightened my day: my first album in physical form! It’s now available from Kunaki for the reasonable price of $6.00, so you too can have the joy of finding one of these in your mailbox. The album is still available for free download from Jamendo and last.fm, so feel free to give it a test-drive before clicking the tantalizingly sexy BUY NOW button.
Pardon the amateur photography.
I’m looking into having it carried by CDBaby and possibly Amazon.

I’ve finally gotten my secret weapon in the mail: a custom Megatar Dragon.
They don’t call it a Megatar for nothing! Just for comparison’s sake, here’s it next to my old bass axe.
This thing is bigger than my torso.
I’ve messed around with it a little bit last night and I think I’ve figured out how to play most of Elephant Talk. I was going from a tab arranged for 4-string bass and had to try and reverse engineer how it would work on a 12-string tapper.
My masterplan for getting the X3 pod met a snag when I noticed that input 2 was an XLR jack instead of the 1/4″ that I was expecting. I’ve ordered an adapter and when it gets here, I’ll record some things to show it off.
