Well I took off Friday to enjoy NAMM and really got a late start as I had a few things to do before driving to Anaheim. When I finally reached there, I had to park about a mile and a half from the Convention Center as parking was really the pits. I had laid on the NAMM where I wanted to go and got to visit some of the places I wanted to see and got a chance to chat with a few of the manufacturers about things. The precious part about visiting NAMM when you get a chance to go, is that you may get a chance to meet your icons. Well here is one of them. Other things I love are being able to see cool new gear. I didn't get to see much as my time was compressed due to gig later that day. Over all I spent about 1 hour on parking and 3 hours at the show before I had to leave and fight the traffic to get to the gig. If you would like to see more pics that I took, he is the link. http://s1226.photobucket.com/albums/ee403/modernsaintmusik/NAMM%202011/ I tried to go back Saturday this time with my son but ran into an issue with NAMM rules concerning visitor badges. I cannot bring an 18 and under in so my 2011 at NAMM has ended. We ended up going to the 4 Amigos California Guitar Show in Costa Mesa instead and enjoyed a day there looking a some vintage and used gear for sale. No I did not buy anything but temptation is always there. As for NAMM I can go tomorrow (Sunday) by myself but I fly to Houston on Monday and I am beat from our National Sales Meeting, Gig, NAMM with in the past 3.5 days - whew and January is only half over - yikes.
