The 72 Telecaster thinline might be my next and last thinline Telecaster for awhile

This particular Telecaster has humbucking pickups which may have been relatively new in 1972. This would be another Telecaster thinline with different pick ups for my collection.

I am buying a few more Fender Thinline Telecaster guitars with different pickups in each guitar.

I have really enjoyed owning a Fender Telecaster Thinline guitar for a year now. I am now buying two more each with different style pickups. One a Jim Atkins model has two P90 pickups. This P90 is the same pickup as is in my Les Paul Jr.. The next Thinline I am buying has dual Fideli'Tron humbucking pickups. I enjoy the weight of these guitars as they are super light weight being semi hollow body.

Focusing on my statistics work rather than music work these past few days.

I look longingly over at the Moog Sub 37 phatty but do not play it. I pluck the strings of the American Standard Jazz bass while it rests in the stand but do not play it. I am really focusing on my job that allows me to purchase these instruments.

Using my Dell Linux Ubuntu Studio laptop with Ardour 5 as my Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) tonight.

I set everything up using my M-Audio Pre analog to digital interface and it seems to pass the signal of a Shure SM 95 condenser microphone and my Fender 69 Classic Player Thinline Telecaster to the Digital Audio Workstation's bus on the mixer window. I may just do some test recording but nothing serious tonight. Just serious testing of the hardware and software and connections. So far the Moog is not involved or patched in. I do have one more USB port on the Dell Ubuntu Studio computer I could send the Moog MIDI over USB to and see if it connects into the Ardour DAW.

Slow blues picking on a resonator guitar is nice

I took up my resonator guitar today and decide to intentionally play very slow blues picking. I lost the sound I had the other day on the Telecaster of Beatles' melodies but gained more authentic slow blues sounds.

Playing 12 bar picking on the six string.

I am often just picking the major scale to do twelve bar picking. I am usually starting this in A Major on the low E string with my second finger at the fifth fret first finger at the fourth fret.

Planning more gear aquistion which right now is mostly more Telecaster Thinlines in natural finish.

I plan to buy two more Fender Telecaster Thinline guitars in natural finish. One is call a Jim Atkins P-90 because it is similar to a guitar Jim Atkins plays and has two P-90 single coil pickups. The other is an Elite Mahogany Fender Thinline. These are both on layaway at a national chain music store's local shop.

Planning some music learning this year seems difficult

I am making a New Year's resolution to do music study every day of the new year. One lesson and/or one practice and/or one reading or study. This could even include just listening to some music as part of a study plan.

Audio input on the Moog

I tired just now plugging in my Fender Jazz bass into the Moog Sub 37 but this did not result in much. I need to read the manual of the Sub 37 some more before getting this working. I think the audio in also just adds feedback or acts as a colour rather than a full control signal. I think full control would only come from a MIDI input. I know there are also Voltage Control Oscillators possible as inputs on the side panel of the Sub 37.

My first Moog keyboard a Moog Sub37

I purchased a Moog Sub37 from the local music chain store. It is too much fun with electricity and is amazing through my small bass amplifier.
