    "Just as if It were a real Musical Instrument"

    This old documentary on the electric guitar is hilarious. Case in point..8:53. Aparantly, Electric guitars aren't real musical instruments. and then the parts about guitar tone...perfect for starting fights on here...loved it.

    I love it when playing guitar brings tears to your eyes

    I have been learning a few blues techniques lately; blues shuffles, scale forms and various blues riffs. This morning when i was practicing it all started to gel..all my boring riffs that i was learning started to work into a shuffle rhythm. I was doing 6th and 7th chords all over the...

    NAD: Traynor YCV40

    Sort of lucked out on making a good trade for this Traynor YCV40 and a Mesa Throttle Box pedal. The amp has a slight bit of damage to the grill..but its purely cosmetic..doesn't go through at all..this thing is built like a tank...Lots of good solid tone so far...have to play with it alot more...

    NPD: Mesa Throttle Box

    Strymon Flint

    Have had the Flint for a little while and just wanted to give my thoughts about it. This pedal is works well to create that sweet tremelo reverb sound we hear in alot of 60's songs. I tried out a number of songs like "Rumble" and "Born on the Bayou" and "Crimson and Clover" The Flint was great...

    Tremelo Pedal

    I'm looking for a good Tremelo pedal...any input into what i should be looking for, or which one to get would be a help. I am very impressed with the Strymon Flint..but it is very expensive..On the other hand, it has great reverb too and you can combine both reverb and trem to get classic amp...

    ECP-NGD...Early Christmas Present New Guitar Day

    Got this today...Its an FSR Classic Vibe 60's Stratocaster with a gold bronze finish. One thing I like about the finish is that it changes according to how much light you have on minute it looks minute it has more of a gold look. I love the pickups on this...
