  1. Fender Vibro-Champ ·
    Very good amp. I recently saw one in a guitar shop and they wanted about $250 for it. If you have the chance to play one of these little amps, go for it. It will surprise you how it sounds.

  2. Fender Mexican Standard Stratocaster ·
    Its a good guitar and I'm afraid that I just got the crappy end of the stick on this one. I guess there is something to be said about the consistancy of production with these guitars. I had looked into changing the pickups and found out that it ...(more)

  3. Fender 70's Reissue Stratocaster ·
    I looked at other guitars in this price range but I was always leaning towards this one. I think I probably didn't give anything else a fair tryout so maybe you can find something better but not for me! If this guitar was lost or stolen, I'd buy...(more)

  4. DOD FX69 Grunge Distortion ·
    I love this pedal. The price was just right, which made buying it easier. If more money was available, I probably would have gone with a Boss or something a little bit higher end. For now, this pedal suits me just fine.

  5. Vulgar Display Of Power by Pantera ·
    This CD makes me want to kick someone's ass. Plain and simple. The raw emotion on this album is unbelievable. If you're about to get into a fight, listen to this first and 10:1 you'll win. My favorite track is Take this Love (?). Dimebag Darrel ...(more)

  6. Blues by Jimi Hendrix ·
    This CD is great. Although its not Jimi as most people know him, this CD is more bluesy than anything he has release. The slow version of Voodoo Chile Blues is great. I love this CD. I think you will too.

  7. Live At The Fillmore East by Jimi Hendrix ·
    This is a great CD. If not for the music, then just for the fact the you can listen to a part of history. This performance takes place on New Years Eve during a time when the country was fighting in Vietnam and the Civil Rights Movement was taki...(more)

  9. Ernie Ball/Music Man Regular Slinkys ·
    I like these strings. I'm going to keep using them despite the fact that they wear out quick. I like the way they bend and I like the way they sound.

  10. Napster ·
    I love Napster and I have on my hard drive over 200 hundred downloaded songs to prove it. The best thing about this program is that if I hear a song that I like or one that I want to learn, I can just go and download it. And then if I like it, t...(more)

  11. Syntrillium Cool Edit 2000 ·
    I like this product. The only thing I would change is my sound card and microphone. My favorite aspect of this product is that I can make my own recording and put it on a CD with the use of a burner. This product hasn't crashed on me, but it doe...(more)

  12. Brothers In Arms by Dire Straits ·
    I agree. This is a great album. I got it a long time ago before I was even playing guitar and I loved it then. Now, that I play, it has another level for me to enjoy.

  13. Blues At Sunrise by Stevie Ray Vaughan ·
    My favorite CD. I have played this over and over and over again. The version of Texas Flood almost had me in tears because of the power and emotion that SRV puts into it. This CD is timeless and I play it for everyone that I can. Go and buy it n...(more)

  14. Fender ·
    Yup. Good site. Runs a little slow on an older computer. Informative and good. Go there now to visit.

  15. Farmhouse by Phish ·
    Great album. I was not a fan of phish only because of the image of some of their longtime fans. I figured that if I listened I would have to stop taking showers and stop shaving and getting my hair cut. But because I downloaded some of their son...(more)

  16. Boss BD-2 Blues Driver ·
    I love this pedal. It sits nicely next to my TS9 and my Vox Wah...

  17. Live At Luther College by Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds ·
    I whole-heartedly agree with Mr. Frick. I have listened to this CD hundreds of times and I have to say that it is truly great stuff. I can't think of one bad thing to say about it. Dave is an excellent guitarist as well as a great lyricist.
