A Few Of My Favorite Things

I need ya all’s help. I’ve had a bugger of a cold the last week, and for the most part, I’ve been banished to the spare bedroom in what will probably prove to be a futile attempt to keep the cold from spreading to the rest of the family. So, I’ve caught up on a lot of reading, and watched way too much television. I fellow can get a little blue in this state if he ain’t careful. Okay, do you all remember the song from The Sound of Music that goes "I simply remember a few of my favorite things, and then I don’t feel so bad"? Well, let’s all put a list together and maybe I won’t feel so bad; shucks, maybe we’ll start a dad-gum tidal wave of feel-good emotions ... it’ll be groovy, dude! Okay, maybe I need to back off the anti-histamines a little, but seriously, let’s get to know each other a little better here. I’ve got commenting turned on, all you have to do is sign in to post your comment. Daniel, David, Dean, Wayne and all the WGS crew, ya all chime in too! Ready, set, let’s get motivational!

The rules are that there ain’t no rules. We should probably stick to music, guitars, amps, and speakers, but heck, if that ain’t what trips your trigger, then what is? I’ll get the ball rolling...

A few of my favorite things:

My Blackface Super Reverb (okay, ya all already knew that).

The solo on Night Rangers Don’t Tell Me You Love Me (betcha didn’t see that one commin).

The solo on Hound Dog - man, it just don’t get no cooler!

My new baby girl ... and her mama, too, of course!

The smell of a vintage tube amp warming up.

A brilliant blue sky after a front has blown through and taken all the humidity and crud with it.

A drummer who knows as much about what not to play as what to play.

My Dad. When I was a teenager, he was the stupidest person I knew, funny how those things change, isn’t it?

Quality products, made by hand by people who care ... I guess that’s why I’m a part of the WGS family! (I hope this last one makes all of you feel a little better.)

Now it’s your turn. What makes you tick? What flips your switch? If you were lying in bed with a bad cold, what thoughts would bring a smile to your face? Here’s your chance, sign in and post your comment now! Next week I should be back to my regular self ... well, as regular as ever anyway. We’ll get back to talking speakers, music and all that stuff. Ya all take care of yourselves; there are a lot of bugs going around -Vaughn-
