    yep! Im amazed at the stuff Ive learned, especially about fingering difficult chord transitions. I hope he reads this and sees how much we like his input. He's a lesson machine!

    no, if you can play it and it sounds good it makes no difference. I just saw this guy called alvin youngblood hart who plays the blues the exact opposite of the way many people would as far as up/down picking, and he's a legend, incredible. unle...(more)

    its said that Jimmy didnt want to sing and front the band, until he heard bob dylan, and thought to himself, if that guy is fronting his own band and singing then I sure as hell can too! :)

    he gave names and addresses of actual people to send money to and promised you would make money if you did. its a scam, and its actually against the law. writing -about- illegal things (or advocating them) isnt against the law but some kinds of ...(more)

    you can definitely learn. Woody Allen (yeah, that woody allen) became a really good jazz clarinetist after starting in his forties. and he leads a band regularly playing difficult standards. im sure he's not quite at the level of many 'pro' pla...(more)

    just make sure you see the crate being packed (also to make sure it was all put in there to begin with!), and I'd advise to try to make it all in one big crate with lots of real padding inbetween, packed TIGHT not loose in the padding. if it is ...(more)
