You know that saying, ‘do as I say, not as I do?’ Yeah, well, I know I said ‘no more ukuleles for a while’, but then I found a left-handed baritone. A LEFT-HANDED BARITONE, guys. You know, a unicorn. Anyway, I’ve wanted a baritone for a while, but haven’t shopped seriously because of the limitations […]Read More The Unicorn-lele! (aka: a left-handed baritone)
I still owe you guys a post about what I’ve learned about my Scarlett Solo and audio interface in general, but today I’m going to go back to talking about other things.
