Okay, so today I want to talk about the plethora of little black devices that sit on my studio table. These include: my cell phone, a calculator, a tuner, a metronome, and a stereo remote. When the phone rings I answer the metronome. When I need to add things, I pick up the stereo remote. Some of you can probably relate to advancing-age-induced absent mindedness, but this week I got a little concerned. I actually put the calculator on my knee to tune my guitar, and stared at the zero for about 10 seconds wondering why it wasn’t changing as I tuned my E string! Oh dear.
