    Strymon Owners?

    Strymon is an innovative pedal company. All of their products consistently deliver high quality tones with a good sense for knowing which features to include without drowning customers in needless bells and whistles. I just wish they weren't so expensive!

    Blanton's is $200!?!?!

    Used to buy this stuff for $40 a bottle. I like bourbon but rarely drink more than one or two glasses a month. Recently went to restock and discovered the price had quadrupled! Dubya' Tea... I still can't wrap my brain around MIM Standards being $699. Not intended as a complaint...

    Seller's Remorse

    A year and a half ago a friend of mine and I made a trade. I received a near mint Wampler Paisley Deluxe pedal and he received a near mint loaded Strat pickguard loaded with Fat 50s pickups. Initially I didn't want to trade but he told me he needed the pickguard for a project... I told him...

    Pedal Brands... How Many Are There?

    Is that like asking how many grains of sand are on the beach? Back in the 70s, there were maybe five or six big ones... MXR, Boss, DOD, Electro Harmonix, Morley, Ibanez, Seth Thomas, Dallas Arbiter, I'm sure I missed a few. Today it seems as if there are hundreds, if not thousands, of...

    Free Thanksgiving Fixins' Courtesy of Ibotta

    I thought this was kinda cool. Ibotta and Wally World are teaming up to give everyone a free Thanksgiving dinner. You have to install the app on your phone, but you can delete it later if you don't want it on your phone. Use referral code "lefyrxy"...

    Scary Movies to Watch for Halloween

    Since there won't be regular trick or treating or the usual Halloween parties this year, what are some recommendations for scary movies that we can binge watch while wearing our costumes and eating candy corn out of a 5 gallon bucket? Links if you can be bothered... House of the Devil...

    SKYPE Lessons? Other Online Options?

    Due to circumstances beyond my control, I am looking at moving most of my guitar students to an online only format for the foreseeable future. Does anyone here have experience with online lessons, either teaching them or taking them? I currently have an older desktop and an older laptop both...

    Invent a New Style of Music

    I always thought the name "Death Metal" sounded ridiculous... What if you took another style of music and put the word "Death" in front of it? Death Reggae Death Polkas Death and Western It seems to me that people who nit pick over the names for musical styles generally don't understand...

    Tasteful Use of Autotune

    I know, it's supposed to be an abomination. A tone killer. A soul sucker. But I'd rather listen to quality music that's tastefully autotuned than out of tune guitar-a-oke at the blues jam... Yes I'm grumpy. But admit it... So are you! :rolleyes::twisted::lol:

    Guidelines: Post a list. Don't say what it is for. Just post the list. Subsequent posters can try and guess what it's for, or share their own list. Or both. Try not to get anyone banned... Lol I'll start with an easy one: Maple Mahogany Rosewood Alder Spruce Koa Ash Poplar...

    Aligning Screw Holes For New Speaker

    I recently replaced the original Utah 12" in my 1974 Deluxe Reverb with a new Eminence George Allesandro SC64 12". It came out great, but it was much more difficult than I expected. I'm hoping that sharing my experience here will help others. First off, the placement of the screws in the...

    Are Vintage Aircraft Rides Safe?

    The recent crash of a WW2 vintage B17 bomber in Connecticut while carrying paying passengers raises some legitimate concerns. I didn't realize that vintage military aircraft required exemptions from modern safety regulations. It makes sense that standards would be different, but I just assumed...

    Hurricane Dorian...

    Looking pretty scary. A friend of mine in the animal rescue community recommended stopping by your local pound or shelter and seeing if you can "foster" any animals and help evacuate them in your car. I share that here because that honestly never would have occurred to me, but it seems like a...

    They Started As a Cover Band... YYNOT

    Specifically, a Rush cover band. The lead singer, Rocky Kuner, has a really interesting voice. The Geddy Lee influence is obvious, but that's just where it begins... It's also interesting to see someone as young as Rocky serving the song and making it work with a bunch of extremely talented...

    Tell Me About (aka Selling Guitars Online)

    What are your experiences? I used to buy and sell guitars on eBay, but I stopped selling there in earnest around 2012. I still buy on eBay occasionally, but usually it's just smaller items. I have a fairly large collection that I no longer play... Well over a hundred instruments. I have...

    Longest Lasting Strings / Sweat Resistant UNcoated Strings?

    My palms sweat. Not terribly to the point of dripping wet, but I often feel like I need to wipe my palm on my trousers before I shake hands with someone. This slight bit of moisture raises Cain with my strings, especially in the warmer weather, when I tend to sweat more than during the cooler...

    Predict The Future?

    Gloom and doom? Flowers and butterflies? Incense and peppermints? Dystopian nightmares? What are you predictions for the future? I recently discovered that I have been living in the past for quite some time... This realization was precipitated by the discovery of a 1TB micro SD card...
