Today was good, though I've done no work… ah well.
Brother and Sister were still here today. Brother's 21st present from Parents was a good guitar of his own. And today he chose it! We went to Regent guitars in Leamington, which is full of helpful people who know what they are talking about. I think we were there for just under 2 hours, and the "acoustic specialist" was very, very patient and helpful.
He explained the various models, and what was their best features, which ones sold most and why, he played them and explained about the different sounds you could get and how it varied between guitars and why, talking about woods, size etc. Basically, he was very informative, very willing too answer questions and very helpful. If you're looking for a good guitar shop… Regent Guitars is Leamington's… probably Warwickshire's…maybe even the Midlands…and so on and so forth.
But not only that, it was a nice shop to be in. It was very relaxed, and there were lots of lovely musicy sounds emmitting from different rooms.
Then we walked back, and found a bakery… Leamington seems limited in it's bakeries… unless they are all hidden away… Crewe has a much better selection of cakes/doughnuts/gingerbread men… Mmmm gingerbread men… but anyway we found it and I got a dough-based food.
Oh and then Ireland got the tripple crown… those last few minutes… good. Very good.
