Okay, I just reoriented the tower, since the last time it was being dumb like this, angling it away from the wall helped. Now it faces forward.
It could also be the unexpected reboot. The power cable accidentally disconnected as I lifted it over the tower.
I think I've seen some of that show, or at least the ads for it. Seemed okay, though never watched any episodes of it.
I'm now trying some acoustic power chords. Found the lessons for it in an old issue of Guitarist, and due to the standard power chords being somewhat lackluster in an acoustic, decided to try them.
That band sounds pretty great.
And, neither did I before I spotted it while looking for a question about picks someone asked in their Q&A section. Decided to try them just for fun. And, to prepare for when I buy that electric and start using distortion.
