  3. AX84 - The Cooperative Tube Guitar Amp Project ·
    While this site does not provide a "step-by-step" guide to building an amp, there is enough discussion archived on their discussion board to give you a thorough education in amplifiers. Several folks (even those with no previous electronics exp...(more)

  5. Modes: No More Mystery by Frank Gambale ·
    While this video doesn't go into great detail about how modes are constructed (it's assumed that you already know this much), Frank endeavors to show you how each mode can be utilized as a separate and distinct sound that is available over the e...(more)

  6. The Essential Steve Morse by Steve Morse ·
    Imagine going to a concert where after each tune, the guitarist stops to explain the equipment he is using, how he uses that equipment and his fingerboard approach in the song he just played. Now imagine that the concert is the Steve Morse Band,...(more)

  8. Guitar by Frank Zappa ·
    While this set is not as adventurous in certain aspects as the material contained on <a href="http://www.wholenote.com/default.asp?iTarget=/resources/revmain.asp?i=2704"><u><b>Shut Up 'N' Play Yer Guitar</b></u></a>, especially as concerns the r...(more)

  9. One Size Fits All by Frank Zappa ·
    The fact that many of the guitar licks and solos on this album are played on a fretless guitar is enough of a reason for anybody interested in guitar playing to buy it. The fact that the playing is damn good is another. <br/><br/>This album has...(more)

  10. Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar by Frank Zappa ·
    One of the things that rarely gets mentioned in the same breath as Zappa is sensitivity. Yet, several of the tracks on this set are fine testament to the fact that Frank was capable of delivering immaculate sensitivity. <br/><br/>Check out <b>P...(more)

  11. Joe's Garage by Frank Zappa ·
    One of the most interesting tidbits connected with this album is the fact that none of the guitar solos were actually played over the backing tracks that compose this material. By the time this album was recorded, Frank was headlong into his exp...(more)

  12. Bongo Fury by Frank Zappa ·
    An album of live material recorded at Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, Texas in 1975, this Zappa/Beefheart offering just might send you out looking for more Zappa <b>and</b> more Beefheart. <br/><br/>Three of the tunes on this album are ...(more)

  13. Rocks by Aerosmith ·
    As far as I'm concerned, this is <b>THE</b> Aerosmith album.

  14. You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Vol. 2 by Frank Zappa ·
    After listening to Napoleon's vocal contributions on this album, you would never guess that he was suffering pneumonia. He must have collapsed from resperatory stress after this performance. <br/><br/>If your craving anything along the lines of...(more)

  15. Zappa In New York by Frank Zappa ·
    If I had to narrow it down to one Zappa album, this one would be it! <br/><br/>Be sure to check out the hilarious <b>Titties & Beer</b>, <b>Punky's Whips</b>, <b>Honey, Don't You Want A Man Like Me?</b>, and <b>The Illinois Enema Bandit</b>. <...(more)

  16. Hot Rats by Frank Zappa ·
    This is not one of my favorite Zappas. But any Zappa is better than no Zappa. If you crave Frank's instrumental improvisation stuff, then you will probably enjoy this album.

  17. Powerage by AC/DC ·
    This is my Fave AC/DC album. I think the "old" band was really starting to hit their stride with this one. <br/><br/>If you're a fan of crunchy blues based rocking, you can't go wrong with this recording. <br/><br/>Sin City is a classic.

  18. Boston by Boston ·
    Considering the fact that some of these tracks were demos, recorded in Tom Scholz basement studio, it is absolutely amazing how well this album holds up so many years later. This is probably some of the cleanest and well-mixed rock and roll to c...(more)

  19. Killer by Alice Cooper ·
    This is a great Cooper album. It's one of my favorites. It's rough, tough and raw... the way Alice Cooper is supposed to be. <br/><br/>This album is much better than the over-produced stuff that Alice began releasing shortly afterwards.

  20. Alive by Kiss ·
    I believe this album was actually recorded at the Cobo Hall in Detroit. Alive II was recorded in LA. <br/><br/>Be that as it may, I can't say enough good things about this album. <b>Alive</b> made KISS just like <b>Frampton Comes Alive</b> gave...(more)
