Ok, so where the heck did February go? Today’s March 1st. Holy smokes. Well here’s a quick update on my life.
Archive for Red Letter Statement
This has been my latest project. I’ve been working over the last couple months on putting together a pedalboard. For those who are clueless, this a rig that includes all my effects pedals and stompboxs to have in front of me while I play guitar. I used to have a Boss ME-50 guitar processor (which I’m selling btw) which was pretty nice, but you can get such better tones and customization out of individual pedals. Some of this stuff was courtesy of Brian Jackson, and the rest I invested in. Here’s what I got so far:
Boss DD-7 Digital Delay
Boss DS-1 Distortion
Boss FS-5U Footswitch (tap temp for delay)
Ibanez TS-9 Tubescreamer
Boss Chromatic Tuner
Ernie Ball Sr. Volume Pedal
VOX Wah Pedal

as you can see, their’s room for one new stompbox.. any suggestions?
It’s Sunday. My band, Red Letter Statement practices every week after church. Sometimes it’s awesome and sometimes its frustrating. Right now it’s like in between. We went through our set list for the Oct 31st show and now we’re multi-track recording one of our songs called South of Heavy. Its turning out really good. We recorded another podcast which we’ll upload to myspace and facebook, and I’ll probably throw it up here. The frustrating part about today is just getting on the same page with recording and everything. But as of now we’ve recorded everything instrumentally but bass and we’ll probably wrap up vocals tomorrow.
I just googled “Red Letter Statement” and found a video of us from one of our shows that none of us posted! First fan video? Sweet!
Last week we played a show at the Penny Arcade that was a benefit show for John Tedone. John was a graduate of Olympia from a few years ago who recently passed away. From what I’ve heard he was an awesome guy and a lot consider him the best person they have ever met. He undergone a serious problem with depression for three years and his life ended with suicide. Please keep John and his family in your prayers while they cope with his lost. Here is a an article of the show. Check out the rest of the bands from Rochester that we played with:
