    This site is all about shielding and enhancing your guitar, mostly for fender guitars but the same applies to all. They also have a good bit of basic electronic know how information, which explains how guitars, and pickups work. I have personall...(more)

  3. True Fire ·
    I used to live at this site (and I still visit there a lot). Basically it is a place were you can download lessons that were once in a guitar player magazine, but they are slightly better as they come with a MP3. Lessons generally cost 50 cents ...(more)

  6. Scales Over Chords by Wilbur Savidge ·
    I agree with Wilbur. This was one of the first books I picked up; I found it to be to confusing to be useful. I revisited it going through all my music books one day, there is some useful information in there but it is explained in the most comp...(more)

  7. Jazz Guitar Chord System by Scott Henderson ·
    This book is exactly what I have been looking for. I had been compiling a list of multifunction chord forms since I started teaching myself guitar. This book expands upon that concept immensely not only in volume but in the way he presents the c...(more)

  9. The Jazz Theory Book by Mark Levine ·
    Having studied classical Harmony, this book was a humbling experience for me to say the least. Mark Levine has really done an incredible job here explaining a very difficult subject, this is the first theory book that I have read through and und...(more)

  13. Line 6 POD 2.0 ·
    I really like this kidney shaped sound machine, I would definitely buy it again if I lost it. Pound for pound I think its the best thing going for the money.

  14. Boston by Boston ·
    I think I have had this album since my early teens at the time I thought it was great. I'm a bit older now and my taste have changed, But I still am amazed with how well they arrange their songs.

  15. The Cream Of Clapton by Eric Clapton ·
    This is a pretty good album for a greatest hits but there are loads of great Cream songs that are missing. So I say the cream is missing.

  16. Disreali Gears by Cream ·
    This isn't my favorite cream album but its still cream, three of great musicians one great band. There are great variety of songs here, but if you like cream I would recommend Wheels of Fire.

  17. Cream - Wheels Of Fire by Cream ·
    This album is responsible for me playing guitar, and probably why Eric Clapton is a living legend. <br/><br/>Two CDs is this set: <br/><br/>The first CD is in the studio; the recordings here can only be equaled by their first album Fresh Cream...(more)

  18. Blind Faith by Blind Faith ·
    Blind Faith was a band that was created after the downfall of Cream. Pretty much the same band members, but Jack Bruce has been replaced by too people Steve Winwood/Rick Grech. I really like this band wish they did more. I have always been a big...(more)

  19. Hot Rats by Frank Zappa ·
    Man I love this album; I probably listen to it once every two days. Little Umbrellas and Son of Mr. Green Genes are just so cool. I really cant think of a better composer in our time.

  20. Over-Nite Sensation by Frank Zappa ·
    This is the Album that sucked me in.. after I heard Zomby Woof and 50/50 I went nuts and started buying anything that had Zappa somewhere on it. If youve never had a chance to here Zappa go a buy this album you can thank me later.
