Would I say rational or doubt?

Today, I went to KLCC with my sister and I was loitering around while she was at the gym. I suddenly passed by 'Rock Corner' and I immediately decided to get another album for my
CD collection. I know I CD's here are expensive and ridiculous. But hey, I'm a collector of certain things that interests me. I went to look out for another Nine Inch Nails' album and I saw a few on the shelf. I took a listen of 'The Fragile' album and I admit that I did not like it. I think the 'Broken' EP and 'Pretty Hate Machine' album were way better. Probably because 'The Fragile' had too much synth colliding here and there, though I know Trent Reznor uses a lot of synth in his music, but this one felt like it had 'too much goings on'. So I guess, eventhough Trent Reznor is part of my inspiration in music, some of his songs are not up to my taste. Would I be considered as a rational listener instead of idolizing the artist? I dunno..

*I end up getting the 'Year Zero' album the next day*

Testing my guitar out

I just recorded a video of my very sloppy improvision and utter bad shreds. I was just having a test run with my Ibanez RG380F. One thing that was funny, was my mouth. Moving back and forth like a fish. I wonder how am I gonna control that kind of expression in my future gigs.

MY new toy..

Ibanez rules, wherever you go...

Finally, I've gotten my Ibanez RG guitar. Where is it made? Japan! I'm glad to have this guitar in my collection. One of the finest RG guitars that I've tried so far. Probably because of it's versatility and playability feel. A Stratocaster tone like single coil pickup in the middle position, while the both neck and the bridge position are humbuckers. Basswood/Resoncast body, Licensed Floyd Rose Tremolo, gold hardware, double locking tuners, and jumbo frets/flat neck. The pickups are Seymour Duncans, the models are; JB, Jazz and SSL Quarter Pound. It's indeed a sweet guitar because of the sound and feel. The neck is pretty fast, but not as smooth as the Original Wizard I necks from the 80's/90's.

Long have I awaited for a guitar this awesome! Maybe later, I would want to switch to EMG or Seymour Duncan Blackouts pickups, for a much heavier tone. Overall, this guitar I believe would stick with me for a long time, perhaps FOREVER for that matter =)
