Passing on my genetic defect
« on: June 15, 2010, 12:21:31 PM »
I've been out of town on business for three weeks.  The other day, I recieved the following in an e-mail from my 13-year-old, bass-playing son:

"...a couple of my friends and I started a band.  And Alec (our guitarist) doesn't have any pedals. Do you think we could make a distortion pedal for him? "

Hahahahaha!   First band, and it's not "What songs will we play?", it's "What kind of pedals can we use?"

This makes me laugh, and reminds me of when I was 13. I had a TS5...
