    Christopher Cross Solo You Couldn't hear

    I have to agree with Rick Beato on this one. I always liked this tune but wished the solo was out front.

    Sad time for my old friend

    Got her from a rescue 14 years ago, said the found her on the street with almost no hair on her back. They didn't think anyone would ever take her. I did and she's the sweetest dog I ever had. Unfortunately she now has cancer and much as I hate to we'll have to put her down very soon. I love her...

    Wives' Birthdays

    In 30 years of marriage I always struggle with a gift for her. Most times, especially with jewelry I failed. Diamond ring? She exchanged it. Ruby earrings? Returned them saying they were too expensive. Diamond tennis bracelet? She never wears it. Cheap set of earrings? She loved them, wore them...

    Bandit Speaker Options

    So my $40 pawn show score of a teal stripe Bandit has a blown Scorpion speaker. I know I can get a new basket for about $120 but I am just wondering if there is a recommendation out there somewhere. I don't do metal or heavy gain stuff at all. I run clean to moderate rock/blues/fusion type...

    Orangewood Dana Problem?

    Just thought I would get another set of eyes on this issue. I was looking for a cheap travel acoustic since me work takes me on the road every week. Wound up purchasing an Orangewood Dana from Amazon based on the review I saw. I've had it for 1 week and just noticed a belly just behind the...

    Teal stripe Bandit trouble.

    Just purchased a Teal stripe with a scorpion for $40 from a pawn shop. I knew it had issues but for that price, I'll throw dice. The problem is that it has very low volume and a very muddy sound. I pulled the Scorpion and it sounds great in another amp. I put another speaker in it and I get the...

    You Tube Intro...

    Like most of us, I use YT for research. If I want to know about a product or how to do something, I'll check out a few YT vids. However, I get annoyed when the vid starts with the idiotic intro: What's up You Tube? Usually shouted. Why on earth would a vid start that way. Say you were a news...

    Robben Ford at Home

    This is really long but kind of cool to see him just sit, jam and talk about his guitars and style.

    6505 + Gain Hissy

    So a couple of month ago i scored a cheap 6505 + combo. Got it cheap as there is a hiss on the lead channel constantly and on the rhythm only when the crunch is activated. Rhythm without crunch is quiet. Any ideas?

    Johnny Winter - Down and Dirty

    Just watched this one the other night on Amazon Prime. Very well done and told me a few things about Johnny and Edgar that I didn't know. It's not loaded with music but I always find the life of someone like him to be quite fascinating. Been a fan since my early teens but for some reason I never...

    Guy walks into a pawn shop:

    And there to greet him in plain view is a Peavey 6505+ combo with a chartreuse spiky tag pulling your eyes toward it like a magnet. It reads "$200 AS IS". What's wrong with it the guy asks? Young girl at the counter says: well a guy bought it and then brought it back, said it rattles and...

    NGD Quilted Ibanez

    Very happy to have a proper acoustic again, for a couple of years I have had only my Stratacoustic which works well plugged in but not really inspiring unplugged. So I have been casually searching CL and stumbled on this quilted maple body/mahogany neck Ibanez.Quick check online tells me when...

    PTB Suprise

    So I have 2 Peavey Predators MIA that I love to play due to the awesome necks they have. Tore the guts out of each and replaced them with better quality. I bought a set of G&L pickups from ebay and put them in the 92 but could never get them to sound right. I did a rotary switch with a master...

    NGD Stratacoustic

    Just received a Fender Stratacoustic I scored used on Ebay. She was filthy and the action was ridiculous. I took her apart and did some cleaning then shimmed the neck up to work on the action. First strung it up with a set of electric strings (Hybrid Slinky EB) to further work on the action...
