    Hi Joshua, I used to think like you, too. But then, as my tastes matured, I began to see the beauty of Vanilla Fudge Ripple. It's Vanilla, with Chocolate fudge mixed right in- the best of both worlds. Can't we all just get along. TonyC P.S...(more)

    Oh no. Here we go again with the "what's your favorite/who's better" threads. I'm sure within no time, this will degenerate into name-calling and profanity-laced defenses of the merits of Butter Pecan versus Neapolitan. No doubt, the members ...(more)

    I'll have to check Don Ross out. I'm also a huge fan of both Kottke and Michael Hedges. Just got Kottke's latest CD, "Try an stop me now" (Bringing my Kottke total to about 25 CD's, and still not everything he's done). The new CD is great. ...(more)

    Hi Raemond, AS I read your post, I thought- hmmm, wonder if this guy's an Ani DiFranco fan (Ani uses electrical tape to attach fake nails, as you probably already knew). Checked out your homepage, and I was right! Living in Clip is one of my ...(more)

    Hi Andrew, My favorite part of the Bobby Yang clip is when he busts right into "You Really Got Me". I'm still laughing. I'd love to hear a String version of Metallica. What's the band's name? And do they do "Orion"? TonyC

    Came across this gem yesterday. It's a video of a violinist named Bobby Yang giving his take on the EVH classic. <a href=""></a> You have to select the small version or the big version in the bottom right....(more)

    Hi Timothy. I've been using a YamahaAW2816 for some time now. I think the basic operations between the 2816 and the AW16 are about the same, although I'm not sure. With mine, you first have to write your mix to the stereo track. Each song sh...(more)

    Charlie, I cut the block below directly from the first page of his lesson: *********************** <i><b> Before I continue, let me give credit where it is due. All these lessons have been taken from with permission g...(more)

    Hi Michael, Just to clarify... He did cut and paste, but he did not attempt to pass the work off as his own. In every case, he gives credit to the author of the article. Some people may view that as inappropriate in the Lessons section. I f...(more)

    Hi Charles, I just looked at the lesson in question. While it may not be original work, it doesn't appear to constitute advertising to me. There is a paragraph about the webpage Ryan used as his source, with a couple of links to that site. I...(more)

    Last nite, he had a music-stand looking thing he rested the guitar on a lot. He still picked it up and moved around some, but he also let it sit on that stand most of the night while he played. Also meant to mention before, I don't think he's ...(more)

    Hi Joshua, Here's a couple of photos of Junior with the git-fiddle: <a href=";categoryid=1&amp;text=&amp;imageid=55&amp;box=&amp;shownew=">GuitarPlayer Cover</a> <a href="http:...(more)

    Hi folks, Last night, I saw Junior Brown, the country, chickin-pickin, git-fiddle wielding monster. He played at a bar here in Huntsville called Crossroads. It was crowded, but not packed. I was standing at the stage, 5 or 6 feet from the ...(more)

    Hi John, I only first started listening to Richard Thompson (thanks to my wife) about 4 years ago, and I've been hooked ever since. He has a very unique electric style, especially when it comes to leadwork. He uses the diminshed scale a lot...(more)

    Hi David, Since no one else has responded to this one, I'll take it on. Most really good players tend to take the opposite approach to what you have described. In other words, when learning a tune, first play it at half the tempo, or a four...(more)

    Hi Anrew, I've only been listening to RHH for a few years, and I've only seen them live twice. Howver, I pulled this blurb off <i>The Reverend's true innovation was updating the psychobilly sound for the alternative rock era. In...(more)

    Yep! I've been in East Limestone (Capshaw, specifically) since 1996, and the Huntsville area since 1984. You can buy beer/liquor in Athens (although NOT countywide). You can also buy beer/liquor on <i>Sunday</i> now in Huntsville. Who'd of t...(more)

    Hi Justin, I live in East Limestone, about halfway between Athens and Huntsville. Athens has grown since 1990. They can even sell booze there now! Later, TonyC

    John and Paul (and Ringo and George). Just a clarification that the sarcastic "Whatever" at the bottom of my last post was directed at John's diatribe, not Paul's choice of Peter Framptom. TonyC
