Default went to sweetwater

if youíre not a musician you probably have no clue what sweetwater is.
if you are then you know itís kind of the mecca of musical gear.
since there is only one sweetwater store at their headquarters in fort wayne indiana. where they also have a distribution center; a studio and a performance theater. they have everything from concerts to clinics to gearfest there. itís kind of a big deal to us musicians.
even though i only live about an hour and a half from there i had never been.
this past weekend i finally made my pilgrimage and left having bought an electro harmonix east river drive.

Good for you, Gordon...

Are you part of an online musician community? And, if so, did you meet up with anyone while there?...

i used to do quite a bit online collaborating at musicianscollaboration.com but havenít been there in a while.
i do hang some at the metal method guitar forum.
but no i didnít meet anyone from the online musical sites.
just my wife and i made a day of it.
afterwards we ate at a local barbecue joint called shigs in pit.
the brisket was great.
then we took the scenic route home and stopped in a little town along the way to get ice cream at a local place.
it was a good fun day.
