Now I'm really going to rock! Yeah, my music teacher went with me to Guitar Center to look at Fenders. What we wanted they didn't have in stock, but they have a house brand they're pushing, Laguna, which my coach and I both played and felt right. I'm allowed to return it for the Fender I was looking at before if for any reason I'm not satisfied with the Laguna, but it seems like a really good guitar. I got a 15 watt amp with it, cord, strap, extra strings, and a portable amp that I can use with batteries if I want to practice out by the pool or something.
I'm going to start learning Queensryche's chords tomorrow.
I Am I, baby! Heading for Promised Land.
