    Getting into The Grateful Dead

    I guess it's a good thing they weren't a funk band then. ;) I'd say they've maintained a solid followimg for so long because of a whole lot of really good songs that were always played from the heart, shows that were played without a net, and that thing that unexplainable to anybody who wasn't...

    When more gain doesn't equal better tone

    IMO if you have a boost pedal 'always on' you're not playing the right amp. I use a Fat Boost as a boost, for when I want a little more volume for solos. Otherwise my amp is set for the gain/volume I need. FWIW my Strat and Tele both have vintage spec pickups.

    Minimum Bar Band Loudness

    Totally the truth. A couple months ago I met friends out for a beer and there was an acoustic guy playing. He was good enough, and was playing a pricy Turner acoustic. It was the worst, harshest, tone you could imagine. It made it difficult for me to enjoy conversation with my friends. Not...

    Lack of musical diversity....local "bar" bands

    I play in an original band. We play places that hire a lot of cover bands. People like us and we often get comments like, "Its nice to see something other than a cover band playing the same old songs."

    You know you're "old" when (GOML content)

    I saw that one, The Revivalists. They are an awesome band, I've seen them twice, killer stuff and the lead singer really knows how to work a crowd.

    How Long Have You Taken Lessons For?

    About four years of guitar (through high school) plus five years of school band, plus some random theory classes and workshops. You'd think I'd be better... :(

    "I love data."

    I love data. What I hate is when I'm asked to analyze, or respond to bad data. Sorry, but if you're not going to tell me how the data was collected, or you expect me to ignore variables that had an effect on the outcome I'm looking at, then I don't want to talk about data. Unfortunately, at...

    I own one of these. Have no opinion on those specific speakers, but IMO, that's a great amp for $750.

    Making it - what does it take

    With the internet companies that host all the audio and video 'content' created by the artists (and enjoyed by the fans who think it all should be free).

    Songs about Jerry Garcia

    Patchwork Quilt by Warren Haynes. Down the Road, Mickey Hart/Robert Hunter I love this verse: From the corner of my eye I saw the sun explode I didn't look directly 'cause it would have burned my soul When the smoke and thunder cleared enough to look around I heard a sweet guitar lick...

    David Knopfler

    Setting aside the fact that one still needs to buy stuff to do that, it doesn't mean you'll know what to do with it. I've heard a lot of stuff people recorded at home that sound exactly like....someone got a couple of cheap mics and recorded an album at home. IMO what you are really paying...

    What's your motto when going on stage?

    There are no wrong notes. It's very freeing.

    Question for sky watchers

    Satellites don't blink, they don't have lights on them. As for the ISS, it's around the brightness of Venus, you can see it pretty much anywhere!
