    SmokingFlax Puritan Board Sophomore

    Guitar -All styles from Spinacino's first lute manuscripts in the 15th century to today's electric styles. I've been mesmerized by it for as long as I can recall.

    Music Theory -(so I can apply it to guitar of course) I find the written notes and the logic of counterpoint almost as beautiful as the sounds they represent.

    Reading -I'm not sure if I should call it a hobby or a life or death necessity as I NEVER feel like I know enough ...especially when it comes to the faith.

    Art -

    Computer Graphics ...which I'm getting better at by leaps and bounds lately.

    History -I like it but I don't have a lot of time for it at this point.

    Philosophy -Thanks to Schaeffer, Van Til and Bahnsen I see the importance of it and wish that I knew more about it than I do.

    Hey now! I take offence to that one. :lol:

    #2 - Collecting Books for my Library
    #3 - Collecting Classical Music on Vinyl (A little Blues & Jazz too.)

    I used to have a terrible Chess hobby (addiction), it got the better of me! I had to quit playing almost 2 years ago, I have not played a game since. Needless to say I was obsessed with Chess and it was turning into an Idol. So I kicked its butt and put it in its place. :bigsmile: (By the Grace of God, Of course!)

    I know I mentioned sleeping earlier, but my main hobbies would include:

    1) Guitar - I have a Martin D15 which is my all-purpose guitar, and the one I play at church, when I play. About a year ago I installed a K&K Pure Western Pickup in it and it sounds unbelievable plugged in. Great bass response, full, natural tone. The two other guitar players play Taylors with built in electronics and they just don't compare.

    Then there's my Gitane DG250M which is a replica of a 1941 Selmer, the kind of guitar Django Reinhardt favored (see avatar-- not the guitar but Django). I was taking Gypsy Jazz somewhat seriously last summer, and even had a little group going, but the time I had to put into it, learning how to play that style, was so demanding that I gave it up. I still get together with my buddy Steve, who also owns a gypsy guitar, and we keep the dream going.

    2) Fishing - I live in Minnesota. What else can I say?

    Me Died Blue Puritan Board Post-Graduate

    I might begin to slowly enter the world of golf this summer, as I may be working at a golf shop or course...we'll see. My guess is that quite a few people here play golf at least as a side-hobby. Am I right?

    Lately, while I'm not doing schoolwork (and sometimes even when I am!), music has been becoming an even more central hobby of mine than ever before. I've actually been taking fairly long walks just to have some alone time to practice singing! :sing: I'll also be learning acoustic guitar this summer for the first time, with help from a lessons-instructor and some from my younger brother, who's been playing electric for two years. Combine that with my love to express theological truth and other aspects of life through writing, and you see a new path I hope to head down in the future.

    I wrote some more about music in my life in my recent blog entries.
