Week 8

Week eight is now in the books and we picked up a few new things in the guitar building course and reviewed some things we had already done. I'm about to climb the walls here as I have no transportation, not that there would be anything to do in Lindsay anyway, but I could go to Toronto. My birthday is tomorrow....uhh....hooray? I wish I could go to Toronto tomorrow and do some things but I'll have to wait until next month.

Week 7

Week 7 is now in the books, so I'm a bit over a third of the way through the guitar building course. This week was a bit of review week, going over some things we have done before along with being shown different repairs, which Joe has been doing throughout the course. Two more weeks and we start building our own guitars. On the personal front, I'M BORED! It has been the exact opposite of normal- I look forward to the weeks and hate the weekends because I'm stuck here with no transportation and nothing to do most of the time. I'm definitely headed out to Toronto next month when my land sale closes, and definitely getting a new tattoo and a piercing. As for what I HAVE been doing during the weekends, the picture tells the story.

Week 5

Week 5 is down and everything with the school is going well but I'm about bored stiff here in Lindsay. I knew that not having any transportation was going to be tough, but I really didn't think it would be THIS bad. At some point, I'm just going to rent a car for the weekend and get the hell out of here.

I had been planning on taking some pictures but Joe wants us to wait until we are working on our own guitar before taking them and that will be after week 8 if we stay by the schedule. So maybe I'll have some pictues up then as I brought my Canon camera with me....there sure isn't anything else to take pictures of around here!

guitar school, week 5

We aren't finished with week 5 yet, but I decided to make a post anyway. We have been working on acoustic guitars all week, starting with bending sides on Monday. That went quite a bit better than expected, as I had read all kinds of horror stories about it. I also had been planning on taking pictures as I went along but we were told this week that there would be no pictures until we started building our own guitars.
