    You are right about the quality of these items but thier real value falls into two areas: sound and collection. For the folks that are into that type sound (usually the new wave folks predominately) this combo is somewhat sought after. For co...(more)

    I don't know about the RP200 vs the 100 but if it follows the Digitech tradition, that is exactly what is going on. I bought a RP-5 only to have them release the same box with a pedal about three months later. Made me mad. But that is life in ...(more)

    I agree that it is a complex issue and there are sooooooo many factors that go into tone. Your question has had me thinking for days now. Obviously, you can't MAKE people feel a certain way about playing. And I can relate to the issue of the ...(more)

    Regardless of all the wringing of hands, everyone knew and agreed to this process, flawed as it is, prior to the election. I absolutely agree that the punch ballots are terrible. But the standards were set and now they want to change the rules...(more)

    Gore certainly is attempting to circumvent the law because the procedures for ballot rejection were established decades before this election and have been followed in every election since, including the last presidential election in 1996, when 1...(more)

    You may be right, THIS YEAR. But John Gruden has a bright, bright future and so do the Raiders. This team will get better every year that Gruden coaches them, and that is bad news for KC, along with the re-emergence of Denver (if they can get ...(more)

    CARY The Lions are, season in/season out, one of the most frustrating teams in football. I can only imagine what it must be like to have to deal with this team every year. And just when you think they are going to put it together, it is back ...(more)

    Bryan Let me start by saying that I am a thirty year Dolphins fan and have hated the Raiders for most my life BUT John Gruden is the bomb!!! I think Gruden, & Jeff Fisher (Titans) are the best new coaches in the NFL. While I think Shanah...(more)

    Christopher To answer your question, I do believe we will have a new PResident by Thanksgiving, but definitely by Christmas. Despite the very introspective over-analysis of Palm Beach County, the larger picture is much more defined and orderly...(more)

    There are tons of web pages with tab. You can do a search on TAB AND BEATLES and I will bet you will find what you are looking for. Here is one at Harmony Central Another site is

    Boy, that is a good one but I am gonna take a shot at an answer that may be bogus but here goes. I think that the other folks that have posted here have hit some good points, and are all true but I wonder from what you said if he is playing fro...(more)

    I don't know there is a right answer to your question. I like the saying about the shoes and no feet. Let me run my story by you. I am 48 (I don't feel 48 but I am). I started listening to guitar music when I was about 8-9 when my father used...(more)

    I answer your question with a sad story. Across America, in closets, garages, under beds, and behind stero cabinets, are thousands, no, millions of guitars collecting dust. Some have recently been abandoned while others have rested for decades...(more)

    Mike You can build your own effects, and if you know what you are doing, obtain very satisfying results. In fact you may be able to exceed the commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products advertised in most music magazines. BUT. . . You really hav...(more)

    I think Ward has the right idea, as you will need some sort of processor to get the overtones. You need something that will create additional tones and the droning sound. To begin with I would loosen the strings on your axe at least a half ste...(more)
