Wondering Minds Want to Know

I was curious about what is an acoustic electric guitar? I mean I had never looked up exactly what it was. I hear the words and see the ads but never fully understood.

An acoustic electric guitar is a guitar fitted with electrical pickups that require a preamplifier within the body of the guitar to increase the signal before it hits the guitar amplifier. These preamps may have tone controls but normally an equalizer with up to six frequency bands. Thanks Wikipedia.  🙂

My interpretation is:  Basically, an acoustic guitar sound and add the electric to beef up the volume!   🙂

Don’t you love fancy jargon when looking up how things work?  🙂

I had to read it several times.  🙂

Check out this pretty one at Guitar Center.

Searching through one of my favorite online music stores, I came across a top fender tuner at MF.  I didn’t have any idea what it was. First thought, oh like a fit bit, tracks your musical playing.

Wrong! LOL

It’s a vibration sensor for tuning your guitar. I was way off! 🙂

Pretty cool though. This would be good for the amateurs like me that have no idea what an out of tune guitar sounds like. This tool will show white on the LCD display when out of tune and green when tuned right. Even I could do that. 🙂

Good price too!

Tuning modes are:

  • guitar
  • Bass
  • Ukulele
  • Violin
  • Chromatic

It can be done in dark places and noisy ones. Who doesn’t love gadgets? 🙂

Day 4 in the #thedailymarker30day challenge! I’m rather enjoying the coloring. 😉  Perhaps this will be another background for a photo. 🙂 I have always enjoyed drawing shapes.

The meal I cook ends up a disaster. 😦  I get so excited to cook something different and then it doesn’t turn out to be like the perfect picture from the recipe. I do wing a lot of ingredients at times, so I tend to set myself up. lol

My family eats said meal I make a disaster of anyway. 🙂 Of course, it comes with several jokes. Don’t tell them that I actually enjoy the jokes. 🙂  I always reply with just wait til you begin cooking and invite me over, payback. 😉

Any cooking disasters you’d like to tell?

Day 3 for the coloring challenge! I think this will be another photo background for an album. 🙂 #thedailymarker30day

I used Bic markers, yoobi color pencils, and fine tip Lepen markers that I bought at a book store. 🙂

When I file something in a good place, then find out it’s not there. 😦 I swear I have fairies that steal all my paperwork and things. 🙂 lol What do they say, the mind is the first thing to go? 🙂

Eliminating the clutter!!!! 🙂 Gives me the warm fuzzies! Whether it be paperwork or things piling up in the corner. 🙂 I will NOT be a hoarder. lol

What gives you the warm fuzzies?

A – and A + + Art Day 2

tielia-and-i-1980 Day 2 Challenge.

This is my best friend from grade school and high school. 🙂 It is her birthday today! We were in 4th grade here. I’m the one without the hat. 🙂 Seems like yesterday. lol  I did the background on yellow cardstock and then used Bic markers to do the designs on the background. I love doodling. I posted this on her Facebook. 🙂 We don’t see each other much nowadays, drifted apart, but we do still talk and care about each other. Great friend, fun friend. 🙂

I dislike when someone takes the last bit of ice cream and leaves the container in the fridge. A certain young son of mine. lol  Of course, I think there is still ice cream until I go to get some and it is empty. 🙂

Watching when your child succeeds at something, no matter how small of an achievement. Love the smile on their faces. 🙂

A – and A + + Art Day 1

I’m participating in an art challenge this month. Coloring. My art looks pretty simple compared to the other ladies on the site. They have some awesome stuff. I went simple because this will be sent to a LetterMo pen pal. I will write on the other side. LetterMo was last month but I like to reply as long as they send me letters. #thedailymarker30day

People who drive on other’s grass or park on it. I see this everyday picking up my son from school. Drives me nuts. It isn’t just a little bit of the tires. They completely drive on it and turn etc. Then they cause a mess with traffic trying to enter the ongoing traffic. My grandparents taught me to not even walk on someone else’s yard let alone drive. Shaking my head.

It’s March 1st, sunny and warmer than normal! 🙂 Spring is around the corner. I bought a tulip plant the other day because this weather is giving me Spring fever. 🙂 It is sitting on my window ledge in the Creative Cave! 🙂

What do you think about the – and + for the day?
