Gibson Island

One of the things I enjoy in a more private manner in SL is listening to live music. Yesterday I attended the launch of Gibson Island writes;

In tribute to the legendary Gibson Les Paul guitar and to Les Paul himself, the Gibson Island is in the shape of the famous guitar body and rises up from the ocean in Second Life. The “island” features humbucker mountains, full theatres, mini-theatres, and other areas resembling pick ups and other aspects of a Gibson guitar.

There was a truly impressive list of musicians playing for 12 hrs.

I especially enjoyed Forsythe and Per … totally different, but equally wonderful!

During my stay (on/off between 9 am – 3 pm) there were between 55-74 avatars, and perhaps that’s why the Island rezzed poorly .. I’m not sure, but I found it difficult to walk around exploring. I did however manage to see these attractions:

The Wurlitzer Cafe

The Acoustic stage

Rob O’guitar :-)

And naturally I had to get me a Longhorn … niiiiice ;-)

As far as I understand there will be plenty live arrangements in the future, so this for sure will be a place to return to ..
