    iPhone CPU Usage

    Whenever I’m browsing TDPRI anymore, my phone heats up and battery drains rapidly. I’ve closed all other tabs and all other apps and this happens consistently.

    There is so much talk about scales and chords, arpeggios and music theory, but IMO rhythm is more important, whether you’re playing chords or doing lead work. If you’re dragging or rushing the beat too much, or someone would need lots of 32nd note ties and quintuplets to attempt to transcribe...

    Blown preamp tubes?

    I was checking out a peavey delta blues 115 combo at the local pawn shop. It powered up, but no sound came out. Looking at the tubes, I noticed that only one of the small tubes was glowing. The other two small tubes were dark and appeared to have a whitish residue on the inside. My question...

    Top 10 Jazz Standards

    I haven't played with a jazz combo for twenty years, and I haven't played any real jazz since then. I've decided to dabble in it once again, but I don't remember any of the songs we did, so I grabbed the iReal book app off the iTunes store (great app by the way, except there's no melody notation...

    Starting a business?

    As I was looking into building my own open back 212 cab, I got to thinking, maybe I could make a living selling these things. My product would be 1/2 inch birch ply, dado construction, finished with truck bed liner, top handle, plastic stacking corners, 2 jacks in parallel, simple round grilles...

    Re-Capping Newer Amps

    I know a fair bit about guitars, but next to nothing about amps and "real" electronics, so bear with me for what may be a stupid question. I've googled a bit about it, but this seems like one of those "black arts" subjects where those who need to know already know... you know? :lol: I know...

    Push-Pull to Add Neck & Bridge Pickups on Strat

    I'm trying to wire a push-pull tone pot into my strat which will always add the neck and the bridge pickups in parallel to whatever is selected on the switch. I use a 3-way strat switch. The switch function would be normal with the pot down: Bridge Middle Neck With the pot pulled...

    Mic'ing a small amp for performance

    I'm not sure which forum this thread is most appropriate for. Mods please relocate as necessary. The way I see it, there are a few problems inherent in the way guitarists have to set up their amps and effects: Time based effects sound much better if they can be placed after distortion...

    Look what fell into my lap

    So, I'm hanging out having a few drinks after dinner with my girlfriend when her little brother calls and asks to talk to me. "Hey man, are Supro amps worth anything?" "Uh, yeah, probably. Bring it over." He lives next door, so 5 minutes later he walks in carrying a minty Supro "Super"...

    Shooting in my town

    NPR Story I drive past this area all the time. I was pretty worried about a friend of mine who's a McKinney police officer until I spoke to a mutual friend of ours on the phone. No police officers were injured, thank goodness. :shock:

    series/split/parallel with a tele 3-way switch?

    Say you had a tele with a single humbucker... is it possible to wire the 3-way switch to let you switch between series/split-coil/parallel like you can with a DPDT on/on/on switch?

    My Funky Doodles

    A few song (fragments) I put together with my Boss Micro BR. Drum machine, and I laid down the bass track and two or three guitar tracks for each. Fender Highway 1 Precision Bass (with DiMarzio Model P wired straight to output jack) and Godin LG P90. Forgot to set the input levels on a...
