Great, I've been missing sales galore! This
took my gaming funds and is being put to use daily :)
Oooh, nice. I wish the wife would agree to let me spend some coin on a new guitar. Alas, while I can play a bit of guitar, I'm no guitar player. If you catch my drift. (BTW, I see you're a lefty. :)
It was indeed discussed, and MunkiSiren gave me her blessing :) I realised that I hadn't made a significant purchase for myself in almost 2 years, with my computer being the last one. I too am no guitar player! I had lessons briefly when I was 16-17 after playing around on friends right-handed guitars upside down. At first I found it difficult to adjust to playing a left-handed guitar, and missed the ability to play some of the songs I made on an upside down right-handed guitar. Before I moved in with MunkiSiren, the guy I lived for almost 2 years with had multiple guitars, and I had a crappy right handed acoustic strung upside down. Living with him encouraged me to play again. Due to the neck warping from not taking care of it(it was always meant to be a temporary guitar) it can't keep tune for even one session.
I haven't played another persons music since I was a teenager. I fiddle about and make my own up. Today I made the decision to be more disciplined and start playing scales again. I managed to "get in the zone" where I am not thinking and just playing. This is the first left-handed steel stringed acoustic I have played and it is really helping me to refine my chord changes, finger picking, and bar/power chords as the strings are closer together. It is a very "loud" acoustic too, so I am hearing every mistake much more easily than on my old nylon stringed acoustic.
Given that this is a gaming deals thread, and I am a tangenterine(type of fruit that when eaten goes off on tangents), I should add a deal here that I have not seen linked. My powers of observation aren't the best right now after a day of being active.
Hopefully Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons

Depends on what you're looking for, really. I think you'd better get back to developing those callouses again. ;-)
If callouses from typing developed, then I would be known as Iron Fingers! :P
