New toys!

My parents are here this week and brought my electric guitar from the USA to France. I went out today and purchased a Vox Mini3 battery powered guitar amplifier as well as a Zoom G2 guitar effects processor (sorry but they had no Line 6 gear at the music store here in Paris). I wasn't planning on making or posting a video, but after two Kronebourgh 7.2% alcohol beers and get a first take, improvisational, off center camera shot video of me playing electric guitar for the first time in 6 months, over a drum loop from the in the Zoom G2, played through the Vox Mini3 amp...ugly warts and all... here you go:


  1. TRAITOR!!!! haha...surprised about that music store not carrying Line 6, which one did you go to? on my last visit, I went to a store on Bd. Sebastopol, about 5 mn walk across the river from your room, and they had all kinds of PODs.

    The jammin' sounded good Jim! I hope your folks are enjoying themselves, and i can't wait to read what's next!

  2. Hey Steph,

    Wow watching that clip sober...mmm not so good. Oh well, guess that comes with the territory of creating a "real" blog.

    I got the amp at Paul Bueuscher ( right by Bastille (closest music store that I knew of):

    27 Boulevard Beaumarchais, 75004 Paris, France

    I look forward to hooking up with you soon in Paris, you can show me the ropes at some of the jam sessions here.
