• The Cure was on to something. Definitely rip them off.
  • There is much rejoicing inside the MJM Foxey Fuzz. Albeit, kind of ’80′s Van Halen rejoicing, but still rejoicing. 
  • It is possible to forget the lyrics to ‘Heart of Worship.’
  • When you forget the lyrics to ‘Heart of Worship’, always make it seem like you’re too overcome to sing, rather than copping to the fact that you screwed up. Ya. There’s the heart of worship. 
  • Delay. You’re welcome.
  • Sometimes God uses what you don’t expect.
  • I love fuzz.
  • The bass guitar is what makes everything the electric guitar does possible.
  • 90% of all hum issues can be solved with those little ground switches on the direct boxes
  • I should put more into my acoustic rig. (Meaning, something besides just my acoustic. Like, a tuner would be good. And a cable. Don’t just steal them from the electric rig.)
  • Fleet Foxes. 
  • It is still possible to be overcome by God’s love, even when you’re focused on leading. Sometimes even moreso.
  • If you make a list of things to do but keep said list only in your head, you will always forget one thing.
  • Writing lists is for sissies (i.e. Line 6 users. Kidding!! Kidding! Seriously, Line 6 demos are coming soon, and the Echo Park is the best bang for your buck in the entire delay entourage.)
  • My amp’s black tolex sounds better than the red tolex. More mids.
  • I am the Edge. (Yes, a worse sounding and worse playing one, but don’t spoil my fantasies!)
  • If I want to stop burrowing a hole in the back of my guitars with my belt buckle, I need to invest in one of those guitar player belt sleeve things.
  • Man, those guitar player belt sleeve things look stupid.
  • Say what you want about Taylors, they sound really good.
  • Hillsong knows what they’re doing.
  • Hence, I steal from them a lot. (Ideas, not gear.)
  • More delay.
  • Those little background graphics behind the song lyrics? Ya. Those are important. Someone came up to me this week and said that one of the backgrounds reached them more than my tone…I mean, than the song. ;)
  • If you know for a fact that no one has touched the sound system since you last turned it off until the time you turned it back on, someone has touched it.
  • And lastly, if things are sounding really good, but you don’t have your delay pedal on, you should always then turn it on. Just for the peace of mind in knowing that since you had delay on, things couldn’t possibly have gotten any better. And fuzz.

Splendid.
Karl.
