    Alcohol: A life ruiner

    This subject is actually very important for TDPRI. As musicians, we basically work, in many situations, for the alcohol and tobacco industries: the money that supports the clubs, honky tonks, venues of many kinds is quite often directly from alcohol and and tobacco sales. And we are "masters of...

    Weirdest guitars used by well known and Pro level players.

    Taste and opinion are, of course, individual... but just because I feel like writing it, I really like the Wandre - I want one - and think all the others in the chain are hideous. (your mileage will almost certainly vary...))) Edit: I spoke too soon... now there are others I like - the Supro...

    Hardtails are so rare

    One of my favorite guitars ever was a hardtail partscaster I had stolen from me in Los Angeles in the early '80's (after a show at the then-Central/now-Viper Room, along with a whole band's worth of gear). I'm still looking for it... if anyone ever saw it, it has a custom made preamp inside...))

    Tremolo technique tips for Recuerdos de La Alhambra

    So I just watched "Get Back"

    Well, I've owned Twins all my life and with those kind of monitors (for the vocals) you couldn't really turn them up to what I think of their "sweet spot"... but then I guess that's my point: they didn't need to: they're the Beatles and I'm a mere mortal) Vox amps are much more forgiving, in my...

    So I just watched "Get Back"

    Exactly... they got up on the stage/roof with no pedals and the least friendly amps Fender makes and killed it.

    Recommend a small modelling multi-effect processor for travel

    I would say that there's probably something from Zoom that will fit that bill.
