incomplete or not, dat was a good reply.

I was in high school when I went to a friend's house one day. His dad was really into music and writing/recording. Their living room was kind of like a thrift store clutter of music gear, guitars, keyboards, mixing boards, etc. It was intense. Anyway, they kept referring to their D-A-T to record. I was crazy interested in learning the recording side of music but I just couldn't fish the definitions out of him or his dad.

I felt like an idiot for not just already knowing what they clearly seemed to think was common knowledge. Sadly, I didn't get into the recording side of things until maybe a decade or so later, when DAT evolved into DAW. I knew what THAT one meant, so I felt confident to jump in at that point. lol?

I'll be honest. I think this is the first time anyone has ever actually defined that for me!

That kid was the one that first put an electric guitar over my shoulder and taught me the intro to Metallica's Enter Sandman and what a power chord was. I had handled an acoustic before, but that was a very different experience. That was also the same kid I accidently hit in the shin with a baseball bat one Saturday afternoon. That's a story for another thread, if I haven't already shared it here.

I miss cassette tapes

I mean I can't because I don't even totally follow the claim. But wow, what a splash to make after five months. Hi Joel!
