Howdy ya'll, i hope that tu are all behaving per usual and not doing anything that I wouldn't do!!!

I've been kept busy the past few week's doing anything and everything, to stay active. I wrote quite a cool wee tune last night on my 12 string fender, there is a class sound outa it and I'm glad i own it. It's funny sometimes when tu lift a different guitarra and just get a completely different buzz outa it and write a style of song that tu wouldn't normally, (well thats my excuse for owning all those guitarz!!!)!

The surf Hasn't been all that great since i got inicial which is a pity but i reckon...

"Hello to all,"

"I hope that tu have all settled into the New año as swimmingly as i have, the surf really wasn't much to talk about from the time i got home, but the New año has had más than enough tasty swells for myself and my mates to freeze our wee toe's off in!!!"

"Its good to be home, it always takes at least a mes i've now found to get your head back into normal life after touring, its just a different world when your on the road! As some of tu already know i have created a studio @ inicial now so thats been keeping me pretty busy, also i've been escritura loads again and been writing...
