    New guitar amp just delivered. What should I get for test drive?

    Stayed home today because I knew amp was coming. Due to slight alcoholic thang, I pretty much always celebrate things with booze. What should I pick up at liquor store for my soon to be solo jam fest.

    Bourbon (this would be the rock and roll thing to do, but I'm getting a little long in the tooth)

    Beer (maybe Free's suggestion of Octoberfest, or maybe just cheap cans of Pabst or Genesee Cream Ale)

    Wine (I'm leaning this way, I fear I'm turning into a ghey)

    What amp did you get? As for the test drive, I would play some Who tunes like "The Seeker" , "Pinball Wizard" or "Young man's Blues" from [I]Live at Leeds[/I].

    Why do you think wine is gay? It's probably the most complex alcoholic drink, with the most variety of tastes. It's kind of chilly today, so go with a French Bordeaux or Côtes du Rhône, or a California Cabernet if you like a Bordeaux style wine with more oak.

    Have a blast.

    Nice choice on both fronts. Let us know how that thing sounds after the test flight. It looks really sharp/retro, too.

    A lot of amps are going back to the 50's tweed look.

    I even had someone make me a new guitar that looks old. Sounds stupid, but it feels broken in when you play it.

    True. I almost bought this Epiphone Blues Custom. Even my Line 6 looks slightly throwback.

    Borgo- good call. I've been buying (and drinking ) a LOT of this lately.

    I'd have to say, probably gotta go with the Bourbon. Straight out of the bottle. It just seems right.

    Admittedly, however, I am neither a guitarist nor a heavy bourbon drinker.

    Still an under-appreciated French appellation, which allows you to buy a great quality wine for a lower price. If you like Côtes du Rhône, check out an even better value with Côtes du Ventoux, which is also a Rhône style wine. I was first introduced to both spectacular wines as a culinary student in France.

    Let's start a JI band. I want to play bass.

    We can start with Whippin post and One Way Out if the Allmanns are what you are into.

    I think CTM "had it out" for him... or vice versa. ;)

    Thanks, Dr. Z. I like both CTM and PAC, and wish they'd make nice.
