    Hello WholeNoters! I haven't been active here in a while. I loved this place in the early 2000s, and I still pop in once in a while to see what's happening. I just wanted to send a quick alert that I've started a new guitar blog, <a href="http...(more)

    I've never smoked a thing in my life, but I hate smoking bans. Sure the effects are bad, but it's the principle that hacks me off. By what right does the government tell a private business owner how his/her customers can behave, all of whom are...(more)

    I just wrote a post on my blog (<a href="http://fromthewoodshed.com">fromthewoodshed.com</a>) that I thought might generate some discussion here. I've only had a day to think through this idea, so it might be rough. Feed me back if you can get t...(more)

    Don't know of any non-stomp boosters, but <a href="http://www.stompin-ground.com/products/radtone-loopbone-over.htm">this thing</a> looks cool.

    Anyone have opinions on Golden Age pickups, available at <a href="http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Electronics,_pickups/Pickups:_Guitar,_electric/Golden_Age_Pickups.html">StewMac</a>? I occasionally browse that site, researching future DIY projects ...(more)

    I use a few TV exercises that are picking only. I wrote about them on <a href="http://fromthewoodshed.com/blog/2007/10/16/tv-exercises/">my blog</a> (specifically "Pick Jumping" and "Duk-uh-di-dun"). If my left hand isn't free to mute the strin...(more)

    Nels Cline's interpretation of Coltrane's <em>Interstellar Space</em>. <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcjAy3VtMVU">See here</a>. Good call on "Salamanders." "So Happy" comes to mind too. Crazy guitarspeak.

    I use it for all my videos. It handles more file types and is much sleeker than players I've used in the past: RealPlayer, Windows Media. This site has tons of free, open source software for windows: <a href="http://www.opensourcewindows.org/">...(more)

    Bill North's post in the Washburn thread made me think to ask about this. Where should I direct my attention (brands, models, versions) if I'm looking to try out the fattest necks I can find? I'm a hefty drive away from any music shops with hug...(more)
