    Jeremy- I got that information from another store's web site. I'm still thinking about purchasing it, so... how's music go round? I've never been there, being that I live on the eastside.

    I've been listening to Creed's Human Clay non-stop for about a week now. They still have one or two more potential singles on this cd. Check out Beautiful, Say I, Faceless Man, and my favorite track off the cd, track 10-wash away those years. ...(more)

    hello everyone, I just wanted to get some thoughts on this amp if anyone has one or has played through one. I saw an ad on the web from a very reputable guitar store in Michigan that advertised a used Fender Super 60 tube amp in excellent cond...(more)

    Okay, now that I have your attention...no seriously, my question has to do with playing the higher registers of the guitar (i.e. 15th fret and above). I really have trouble with this and want to hear how you all overcame this. I know there's n...(more)

    just curious if anyone here is into building their own guitar pedals and how they came out. I've seen a few sites on the internet which have specs for various kinds of pedals like tubescreamers, old fuzz faces, octavias, etc. Let me know if yo...(more)

    A big what's up to Dick and Jason- it's good to see a few more Detroiters on the list. Just sending out an invite to any of you who want to get together and play sometime, shoot me a mail message. I'm 23, live in Sterling Heights and been play...(more)

    hi everyone, I've been playing electric guitar now since September of last year. I decided against taking lessons from the beginning and learning on my own through various sources. I know that I can play things now that I had no hope of playi...(more)

    hi everyone, I came with an idea which I'm not sure if it has been tried here before or not. This post is addressed to WholeNote staff on the possibility of trying such a thing, as well as general consensus of members on its popularity and use...(more)

    Rich, Thank you very much for your help, it is greatly appreciated! I tried Anderson's website and in case you or anyone else is interested, they have a 1 800 number to call for a catalog of their instruments in stock.

    Lead players pretty much have to be great rhythm players as well...without a steady rhythm the notes would just be a jumbled mess--which pretty much sums up my playing at this time :)-- and also rather boring without varying rhythms during solos

    Does anybody in this area know of an Epiphone dealer preferably in metro Detroit or elsewhere in Michigan? I'm considering either an Epi SG or a Dot as my next guitar and I'd really like to give them both a serious test drive before making my p...(more)

    Hey everybody, Just wanted to get some input on a comparison of these 2 pedals. Are they really that different that I need to spend $125 on a reissue TS9 or is it just wiser to find a cheap used TS5? I already know the answer to that question...(more)

    I can narrow my list down to 4 at the moment but I'm sure a few more will pop up after I hit post: Malcolm Young (simple but it sure works) Stone Gossard (groove oriented) Page Hamilton (very tight!) Steve Cropper (THE king of rhythm guitar)

    Leroy, Is King's X still together? I don't know too much about them except for a moderate hit that they had (I need some help on the name of the single) and the fact that they did some touring with Pearl Jam a few years ago. I believe their s...(more)

    Just wondering if anybody here has this book and is willing to sell it for a reasonable price? I'd also be willing to trade for it (mags or other tab books). If you respond I'd prefer it be private as I may miss your message...or you could emai...(more)

    In response to your #1 Jim, Zeppelin may have already beat you to writing a song about A Tale of Two Cities...isn't the first line of that novel, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." Well, Zeppelin also did "Good Times, Bad Ti...(more)
