JB - Thanks, good to know the increased tension isn't hurting my guitar!
Mike - Singing with a guitar tuned up half a note is a little odd at first indeed, haha! I gave it a try today, and it didn't always sound pretty
. As for playing with other people, I can imagine you will be giving yourself a hard time playing with a guitar that is tuned up. Guess it's a good thing I play alone.. Though I would love to give performing with other people a try once, I first have to get over my 'fear' of singing in front of other people first.
Anyway, I'm here in the US for an internship until the summer, so I'm pretty much working a 9 to 5 job, Monday through Friday. I live in Northern Virginia, about 2 miles from Washington DC, which is always a very exciting place, especially when it comes to politics!
Btw, I listened to the song you mentioned and it sounds really good. What's your recording setup like? Also, which Silver series model do you have?
