  1. ZOOM GFX-707 Multi-Effects Pedal ·
    A great pedal for the price. My only qualms are...<BR> The pedal has a <B>very</B> small range of movement.<BR> The 9v adapter is a <B>must</B>. 4 AA batteries last only 6 or 7 hours.<Br> Otherwise, its a great pedal with alot of effects, and ...(more)

  2. Peavey Rage 158 ·
    This amp gives you everything a begginer may need for a great price. It also saves you from those embarrasing situations when people say, "What brand is your amp?" (Rogue amp owners know what i'm talking about). It would be a good idea to buy ...(more)

  3. Ibanez RG170 ·
    This guitar is built bottom up as a no-frills rocker. You can replace the pickups and install and floyd rose to make it a genuine metal machine, but its pretty good on its own. The low price and ease of use is easy on the begginer, but its dec...(more)

  4. Memphis Les Paul ·
    This guitar was once at the top of its game, but is now just a Cal Ripken jr. I wouldn't spend more than 200 bucks on it, so why does it get a 3 star rating? I paid 100 bucks, period, end of review,

  5. Rage Against the Machine by Rage Against the Machine ·
    I must agree. <B>Rage is the first, and best, Hip hop-rock bands out there</B>. Don't you find it funny how Korn's Jonanthan Davis said "We named our new album Follow the Leader because everyone wants to be like us and jump on the Hip-hop rock...(more)

  6. Kill em All by Metallica ·
    This album is the epitomy of 80's thrash. Jame's furious rythym style rips through this album, and Cliff's eccentric style of bass really adds to the chaos. This rookie release shows exactly what the master's of puppets were like in their earl...(more)

  7. Evil Empire by Rage Against the Machine ·
    Rage went through some conflict in the making of this album, and it was delayed heavily, when it came out, it flew to the top of the charts, and was even nominated for a grammy. Their second album is a little more "produced" with less of that i...(more)

  8. Dansm's Acoustic Guitar Page ·
    I have a friend who learned to play exclusively on this site. This is a very extensive lesson site with tabs, lessons, and general acoustic tips. It is well written and uses proffesional looking graphics as a teaching aide.

  9. Lark Street Music ·
    A great store is your a guitar collector, not much for the begginer or intermediate player looking to expland his arsenal. He has some really rare guitars here, and some cheap ones, like a 1939 Stromberg master 400 ($49,000). If your in the ar...(more)

  10. Fast Forward: Killer Metal Lead Licks by Rikky Rooksby ·
    I bought this a while back, it teaches some cool licks for begginers, and talks a little about them. The bad part is you don't really learn that much theory wise.

  11. The Ultimate On Line Guitar Tutor ·
    This web-site is ok for starters, and will teach you what you need to know, but it could use some brushing up HTML wise.

  12. Cliff Em All by Metallica ·
    This swings two ways... its like buying a bootleg video, but for much cheaper. If you like that homely lo-fi sound, and nosebleed seat view, this is the video for you. It actually has some proffesional footage as well. The real reason anyone ...(more)

  13. Hideaway: Best of Freddie King by Freddie King ·
    This is blues guitar at its best. Jimmie Vaughn once said something along the lines of "If you couldn't play hide-away, you couldn't play at any club in texas". Besides Hide Away, this album has other killer blues tracks like Remington Ride an...(more)

  14. Led Zeppelin II by Led Zeppelin ·
    Led are called the fathers of metal, so this album is a must for all you metal heads out there. This album appeals to more than just headbangers with hits like "Whole Lotta Love" and "Heartbreaker". This album is just another part of the Led Z...(more)

  15. Jackson PS-6T Kelly ·
    A cool looking guitar with a cool looking price. Sound is fine for its price. A good gig-guitar because of its neat body.

  16. Art of Kirk Hammett ·
    Wanna show off to people who don't know anything about guitar? Great! Then buy this book! If you want to play like Kirk Hammet, this is the book to get. It has full transcriptions of about 12 solos, and lots of random licks from others. As l...(more)

  17. ZOOM ·
    ARRGH!! Maybe the first bad review I've given. I bought the gfx707 and swore to myself that i wouldn't lose the manual, and guess what? Well, they say that manual's are available online, so I check. I found out some shocking news, the web-sit...(more)

  18. Fender Squier Standard Fat Strat ·
    You could get a cheaper guitar from Ibanez or LTD, but the Squier is made by Fender, which means it should stay w/ you for a few years. A good christmas, chanuka, or Kwanza (sp?) gift. I think it also comes in a package w/ an amp for a little ...(more)

  19. Harmony Central ·
    This is the ultimate music web-site. The guitar lessons are a little outdated, but everything else is top-notch. This <I>used</I> to be my favorite guitar site, but now I spend my time somewhere else...

  20. Best of Lynyrd Skynyrd by Lynyrd Skynyrd ·
    An excellent CD for someone who wants a taste of classic rock. The CD is filled with great guitar (freebird) and even some big hits (Sweet Home Alabama). A very bluesy CD from the southern rock band, and a good tribute to its three deceased me...(more)
