I was allowed to stay out for the night at a friend's house for the first time. A neighbour kid was there as well, who was proudly showing off his siamese dream guitar tab book. That was actually a big deal, this boy was only 11 and his oldest brother had sent it to him from South Africa.
The boy who had invited me (my first crush) had learned to play disarm the same afternoon. There I was, 12 years old, out of my mind in love. I couldn't believe how lucky I was to spend NYE with 4 boys in a cramped room, all looking at this tab book, (and me looking at them). I'd never heard smashing pumpkins before, and then he played disarm.
So my first acoustic impression of SP was a 12 year old boy playing disarm on his guitar. Right then I felt it was the best night of my life.
