Crap Gear – I Love It

My love is songwriting.  I am not a very good guitarist.  I’m a good rhythm guitarist but that’s it.  I can keep a good beat.

So an expensive, exceptional guitar is wasted on me.   Plus, I play in songwriting groups with some good guitarists but all I can hear is the guitar when they play their songs.

Plus, I am cheap.  Plus, I will not spend time fiddling with gear.  So I am partial to crap gear.  Pretty much very simple analog stuff that sorta kinda works, sometimes but takes minimal fiddling.

I also play out a lot, mainly in crap bars to drunks, with crap PAs and sound — so fiddling with anything is pointless.  I’m the only one listening anyway.  That is the s-s scene in Chi-town.
