The band started in a convoluted way. I had been playing Guitar Hero and thought, this is ridiculous: I spend so much energy on a pretend guitar even though I hadn’t really touched a real guitar for close to a decade. Anyway, I enjoyed playing the pretend riffs and it got me curious about the kind of real guitars available in the market. I went online and saw this. Always wanted a Jaguar. Plus it came with humbuckers, which I wanted but are normally found on the Jazzmaster. And it’s black.
After some deliberation, I bought it. Naturally, I wanted to record the guitar, so I started to dig out some of my unfinished songs, neither played in Silverspy nor Suchness, my earlier two bands. I liked the tone. I learned how to use Logic. Did two tunes, before I realised that it would probably be more fun doing this as a band.
Haven’t touched Guitar Hero since.
(Write if you want to buy the game off me. Actually got two guitars. Both wireless. One was a gift. XBOX 360.)
