It's amazing how such a familiar body shape was never copyrighted.  Same with Les Pauls and Strats.  We just take it for granted that anyone can make guitars that are all but spitting images of the more famous originals.  These bastards are even using my family name!   ;)

By coincidence, Pink Floyd touring alumnus Tim Renwick is also currently toting a Gray guitar - Strat shaped !  :)

My new toy is the android version of Eno's "Bloom (10 Worlds)" generative music app.  I can see I'm going to have lotsa fun playing with this. And only 4.99 this weekend (7.99 thereafter).

(As it's Eno-related, perhaps I should have started a new "Non-Musician Talk" thread...  ;) )

Can you explain what this is?  I could look it up, but it might make more sense coming from another human...

It's an app that randomly generates notes (and shapes on the screen), pitch depends on where you tap the screen. Polyphonic... up to 3 notes simultaneously as far as I can ascertain so far. I got it for my phone, reckon it would be much better on a tablet. Only drawback seems to be that it doesn't run as a background task...
