    Similarly, I use the kitchen table, a towel, and another towel -- rolled up -- to support the neck. Cheap, but effective. :) -- Drew

    For those who are in the dark as to what this is (like me, initially), check this link out: <a href="http://www.buzzfeiten.com/howitworks/faq.htm">http://www.buzzfeiten.com/howitworks/faq.htm</a> -- Drew

    Friggin' horrible, man. That's an EXTREME example of what can happen if you don't keep your acoustic guitar humidified. I had something similar happen to an acoustic guitar that I left in my trunk on a hot summer day -- only the opposite -- the ...(more)

    If you were in Orange County, CA, I'd be game. But the drive's a little long for me. ;) Good luck, though! -- Drew

    Sounds good (and like a lot of fun). Lisa, the tone of that new Tele is great! I hear shades of Albert Collins in there. :)

    Dude. I'm too afraid to DIM. But if I do, I'll be happy to report my findings here. :) -- Drew

    Hey there Pointer. Congratulations on the new guitar and amp! Epiphone makes great stuff; excellent guitars to learn on, too. :) Keep pickin'... -- Drew

    One thing to keep in mind if you're building your own machine (and even if you're not): Get the <b>quietest</b> machine you can. Invest some extra money for a quiet power supply, don't mess with video cards that sport their own fan, and generall...(more)

    Hey folks. I'm interested as well. I've got my Tom Waits catalogue nailed. Now I need Dylan. -- Drew

    Are you using Firefox? I have to use Internet Explorer to get the groove-builder and other tools to work.

    Hi James. Lessons are not a magic bullet. They're not going to help much if you don't have the patience to put in the work on the lesson material. So you're not missing anything there but wasted money. For now, anyway. If getting better is some...(more)

    Hey, congratulations David! Sounds like a cool little instrument. I actually saw Johnny Winter at a Blues festival in the early 90's playing a guitar that I assumed was a Steinberger. Now I'm thinking that it was probably one of these little m...(more)

    For the kids...? Green Day has some relatively simple, three chord tunes in their repetoire. That new John Mayer song, "Waiting On The World To Change" is a strummer. Only a pesky Bm chord in there to spoil your open-chord fun. If they'e a li...(more)

    You might consider the Pod X3, which sports models for both bass and guitar. With that, you can go direct into the house PA, or get an inexpensive bass combo (which would work for both). <a href="http://line6.com/podx3/">http://line6.com/podx3/...(more)

    Hey Kevin. Not too shabby! Unique approach -- you avoided the "easy way out" and actually tried to say something unique. Very "angular" sounding. :) Playing *anything* when you know the tape is rolling is intimidating. I think you did a nice jo...(more)
