NAMM Day 4
Day 4 was much quieter than the previous three, especially Saturday which was absolutely a madhouse.
I only had a few people I wanted to talk to, specifically the people at Steve Clayton picks and accessories who I endorse, Andy Lund at Taylor Guitars who very kindly got me a pass to the show and I wanted to see if I could talk the Santa Cruz guitar people out of that custom orchestra acoustic I had my eye on. Unfortunately, no such luck.
On the way to the Santa Cruz booth I happened on Stevie Wonder listening to someone playing a hammered dulcimer. You don't see that every day. A buddy of mine got video of him playing a drum kit on Saturday but I didn't expect to see him myself. That's one of the cool things about NAMM.
Everyone told me the show was nuts, loud, and annoying—and that's all true— but it's also a lot of fun.
It was great to catch up with some friends I hadn't seen in a while and fun to meet some new people and some heroes of mine. Not a bad trip.
And if I hadn't gone, I wouldn't have had the opportunity to see this guy. It was all worth it.
