I also talked to Karen Reynolds about doing an on-air interview and some songs on Writer's Block on WDVX in Knoxville. They have a pretty widespread demographic through webcast, so publicity and such would be great. But Karen's reply was that things would go better with a cd to pitch. So I'm back to my old friend, square one. However, things might be looking up in that arena. I've just secured a job at Starbucks, so I will be able (bills notwithstanding) to save up a little income and finally put together an album. I think it's finally and actually the next step in the process of songwriting. I've got some good sources where I can put things together for fairly cheap. I'm also going to be looking for some new equipment. So if anyone has an LRBaggs Para-acoustic DI, a Boss DD-3, or the Boss RV-5 (and any of these that they're willing to get rid of or sell for cheap, I will soon enter the market. My friend Nathan put a Dark Earth pickup in my Maton for me, and it sounds so much better than the crappy ProMag I had. But I think he got me addicted to better control of my sound. Problem with the ParaAcoustic is, I'll have to carry around a sack of 9V's with me, but enough people swear by it that I'll certainly give it a go. I might be putting some practice amps on eBay soon as well, but I'll let you know. Thanks for reading.
