New Ukulele

IMG_2821sm

I got a new ukulele! It is a Gretsch resonator (tenor) and I put a low G string on it to make it sound a little more like the guitar. I wanted to buy a Kala electric but wasn’t able to find a good disbuter to order it for me so this was the best comprimise. The resonator amplifies the sound so it’s like the step between acoustic and amplified. I’ve been having fun with it!

Recent Travels

We were booked to go to Japan this year and we sadly decided to cancel our trip. Our other plans were to go to the Pacific Northwest next year, so we just switched it up. On our itinerary was Seattle, Portland and Vancouver.

The weather was apocalyptic this particular day. We had just had a marathon of record shopping. Our friend then took us to his favorite local bar where there was a record console for the customer’s use and we had a record party, with root beer and playing all the records we had just bought! What better way to pass the afternoon when it’s so gray outside?

WW1 and Punk Rock

I made the first tattoos on a very good friend of mine. He told me some great stories that were behind the idea for the design.
