Every other company i worked for told the effected people first, then let the group know. Including this company, in the last batch of layoffs. This time, last Thursday, they said "There will need to be some actions taken place in the coming weeks"...so everyone's been super stressed ever since. Well...at least I no longer have the stress of anticip....ation.

Tesla is hiring . . .

I just read that on the internet and you know everything you read on the internet is true! :think:

Seriously, sorry to hear. Best of luck in your pursuit.

Thanks all.

Amusingly, one of my main client contacts used to work for Tesla. Small world.

I'm not sure I'd want to work for Tesla, I'd mop bathrooms for SpaceX.

Might be true, especially if they're planning on relocating to Texas.

Tesla's always hiring, because they are terrible to their employees, so there's lots of turn-over. :lol:

That youtube channel does some interesting stuff. Not necessarily guitar-centric, but often entertaining. And sometimes not... They'll do pop-y "upbeat" covers of heavier songs, cyber/synth covers of even Country Roads from John Denver, Celtic/acoustic covers of 80s pop, etc.

Not eveyrbody's cup of tea, but I'm a sucker for a cleverly-arranged, genre-busting cover.

Watching Scott Carstairs covering JB’s “It’s Showtime” was nothing short of phenomenal.

Wow!...that he could cover that tour de force seemingly effortlessly.

Wow!...for that reminder of what a MONSTER musician JB was.

Have you seen "Steve 'N' Seagulls" covering metal songs in polka? Its pretty dang good. (Metallica, ACDC, Pantera, Iron Maiden, etc)

They have a Pantera - cemetery gates cover and a guy legit plays dimebags solo on an accordian and it gives me chills lol. They are a hilarious group you should definitely check their channel out. ESPECIALLY the Cemetery Gates cover.

The chubby accordian player is hilarious. One video they are lakeside playing "Nothing Else Matters" and you see someone in the background off in the distance on a tiny rowboat slowly approaching throughout the intro. He gets to shore and just joins along with his accordian lol. Also in some other video they are in a barn and like halfway through the song he just randomly sits up and starts playing and you had no idea he was there until that point lol.
Kiesel's:
2017 DCM8, 2020 Vader 7X (Used to have an Aries 7H with Piezo but regretfully sold it)

Other's:
Cheap Peavey Strat (1st axe ever), Ernie Ball JP13, 2018 Dingwall NG-3 5 string, 2017 Warwick RB Corvette 6 string
