  2. Boss OD-3 OverDrive ·
    This is a great pedal. However, if you play that heavy metal, hardrock CRAP, this pedal will do you little good. It is a warm, smooth overdrive, not screaming monkey distortion. Great for blues, rock, classic rock. If this pedal were stolen ...(more)

  3. In Step by Stevie Ray Vaughan ·
    This is a superb record. Stevie and the band have refined their recording process by isolating their amps in separate rooms, thus the sound is much much better. This is Stevie's first record after he sobered up, and his playing really shines. ...(more)

  4. The Cream Of Clapton by Eric Clapton ·
    This is a great CD. It has all of the more rock and roll type songs that Eric made. A pleasure to listen to, and it is great to jam with!

  6. GHS Guitar Boomers ·
    I lke these strings a lot. I have played them more than any others. I am going to try some Fender Bullets because I have a trem, and I can get them in a heavier guage(12-52. I like big strings cuz they aren't wimpy.) I might try some Everlys t...(more)

  7. Dunlop Tortex .60mm ·
    This is my favorite guitar pick. I have used nothing else but this one orange Dunlop pick for a month now. It is perfect for my blues playing. Every player should have this pick in his bag/case/pocket/wallet.

  8. Couldn't Stand The Weather by Stevie Ray Vaughan ·
    This is an aweseome CD. "Cold Shot," "Voodoo Chilie," and "Couldnt Stand the Weather" are the standout tracks that most classic rock and blues fan would recodnize right off. "Tin Pan Alley" is a ssslllooowww blues song that captures SRV's best...(more)

  9. Little Wing by Stevie Ray Vaughan ·
    I agree totally. This song captures the best of SRV's playing. He totally BURNS on this song!

  10. Texas Flood by Stevie Ray Vaughan ·
    This is SRV's 1st album. True, the songs do sound the same (same shuffle rythym), but his soloing is great.

  11. Soul To Soul by Stevie Ray Vaughan ·
    This album has a more diverse sounding set of tracks than any of his other CDs. He strays from his 12 bar shuffles, and creates some great songs.

  12. Four by Blues Traveler ·
    Pretty good guitars, and the harmonica solos are really cool. However, there is a lot more pop influenced songs on this CD.

  13. Supernatural by Santana ·
    This ablum has some decent songs, but it is all mostly pop. I liked Carlos's old stuff way better. This CD is mostly a Carlos Santana jam session.

  14. Third Eye Blind by Third Eye Blind ·
    Pretty good alternative/punk album. This album has a bunch of radio hits, like "Semi-Charmed Life," "Jumper," etc. The guitars are really great. There are some really cood lead effects, and Cadogan and Jenkins are really tight in their playin...(more)
