  1. Presence by Led Zeppelin ·
    Very underated! Almost as good as LZ IV. Some incredible guitar playing on it too. The "Achilles Last Stand" solo is among of the top Jimmy Page solos(along with "Stairway" and "Since I've Been Lovin' You"), and there are many other great guitar...(more)

  2. Used Musical Instrument Prices ·
    Could be awesome--but isn't. i was looking for guitar prices, and it didnt help me in the slighest. but, it doesn't really seem to be focusing on guitars. as i said, it could be awesome if more work was put into it. aside from not having what i ...(more)

  3. See The Light by Jeff Healey ·
    This is an absolutely amazing CD!! Healey is a killer guitar player/singer/song writer!! He has received praise from many artists, including Stevie Ray Vaughn who said he's gonna "revolutionalize the way the guitar is played"!! While I haven't h...(more)

    I wanted a cheap, light tube amp and this baby has delivered. not the greatest amp ever, but great value and thers a certain beauty in its simplicity

  5. DigiTech RP-50 ·
    Good for the price. i think about $70 Can its a pretty good buy. to get all the effects that are on this you have to spend thousands, so its a good cheap way to get to know some other sounds. i probably wouldnt replace it if it were lost or stol...(more)

  6. Boss OD-3 OverDrive ·
    I looked at an Ibanez tube screamer, a few other Boss overdrive pedals, and a jimi hendrix octave fuzz, and i chose this one because, well...it sounds the best! i wish it had true bypass but its not the end of the world that it doesnt. if it was...(more)

  7. Bluesbreakers w/Eric Clapton by John Mayall ·
    If you think you dig the blues but you don't own this record then you don't really dig the blues!! This is Clapton at his Les Paul through Marshall best!! This is why Clapton is still considered possibly the best guitarist ever despite two decad...(more)

  8. Truth by Jeff Beck Group ·
    This is my favourite Jeff Beck record and a must-have CD. It's heavy blues similar to Led Zeppelin, Free, Mountain, and Cream. There are great songs, great guitar playing, and great singing from Rod Stewart. Some highlights include 'Blues Deluxe...(more)

  9. Greatest Hits by Aerosmith ·
    Good compilation of Aerosmith's good stuff before crap like Just Push Play. But why on earth did they put did they do a cover of Remember (Walking in the Sand)...and put it on a greatest hits?? If anyone can shed some light on that ill be glad t...(more)

  10. So,It's Like That by Joe Bonamassa ·
    There is some good guitar playing on this record, particularly on the 11 minute 'Pain and Sorrow', but some of the songs sound a little pop-ish and his voice...well let's say I could imagine him singing in Hanson. However ther are some great blu...(more)

  11. Fender Deluxe 90 ·
    I got this amp because I thought that with tube amps you had to change the tubes every one or two years. Now that I've found out that isn't true I'll never buy a solid state amp again. There are lots of good things about the amp (relatively ligh...(more)

  12. Texas Flood by Stevie Ray Vaughan ·
    Great CD, one of those that everyone should have regardless of genre they play. <i>Everyone</i> can learn from SRV.

  13. A Hard Road by John Mayall Bluesbreakers w/ Peter Green ·
    This is a great CD--better than the one with Clapton IMHO. Green is absolutely phenomenal, as displayed on 'Another Kind of Love', 'Someday After a While (You'll be Sorry)', 'The Stumble', and--especially--'The Super-natural.<br/><br/> Soon afte...(more)

  14. Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs by Derek and the Dominos ·
    This is a great CD. <br/><br/> But come on, with Eric Clapton <i>and</i> Duane Allman on it together how could it not be.

  15. From The Cradle by Eric Clapton ·
    Great CD--definitely his best since Layla.

  16. South Of I - 10 by Sonny Landreth ·
    This is a great record filled with great songs, great tone, and slide playing, and decent singing. It is Landreth's third solo record and generally regarded as one of his best. I'd recommend it for anyone who plays slide.

  17. Hittin' The Note by Allman Brothers Band ·
    As you probably know, Duane Allman died in '71 and nothing the ABB has put out since then has equaled anything from the Duane-era...until now. With a new lineup featuring Derek Trucks on slide guitar and Warren Haynes on standard guitar this is ...(more)

  18. Live at the Regal by B.B. King ·
    This is a great CD. Guitar One put it as the #1 Blues album in their '200 Greatest Guitar Albums of All Iime' issue. The one problem I have with this record is that they left in all his talking and the crowd's screams. It's unfortunate that BB K...(more)

  19. Fender American Series Telecaster ·
    I love this axe. It's got awesome tone, nice playability, and with it's sunburst finish is pretty nice looking. I don't love the body shape, it's just kind of uncomfortable to play but still overall a great guitar.

  20. In Session by Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan ·
    This is a great CD. What I love about it is it brings both of them together in an almost live setting so there are lots of extended jams, but it still has some of the polish of studio recordings and no annoying crowd. <br/><br/> Instead of gett...(more)
