    Who in the hell says "unironically"? These are the whackos teaching young people today.

    Learning Songs By Ear

    I once read an interview with Greg Allman. He talked about how his brother Duane would learn guitar riffs off of albums. Greg said Duane would move the record back with his big toe when repeating phrases over and over.

    Analysis Paralysis: I Can't Decide Which R8 to Keep

    Put on a blindfold. Have a third party mix the two. Keep playing both until you decide on the one that makes you happy.

    This makes sense for a Friday.

    Somewhere on Ebay I'm sure someone is selling "Bag-O-Dicks"

    This coming weekends shows

    Good luck and hope it turns out great. Having backup is the best way to ensure nothing goes wrong. I carry two guitars to every gig and keep a spare amp head behind the seat in my truck. That came in real handy at one gig when my amp did nothing when I turned it on.

    ...and you can be certain the offended student is just stupid enough to continue eating at that same restaurant. Never piss off the staff unless you are done eating with no plans to return.

    Tribute 50s LP with P-90s

    I have a 2013 50s Tribute Tobacco burst. Really nice guitar. Mine has a pretty thick neck, but not quite as thick as my R7. I've been thinking about selling mine. I just don't play it much anymore. Been kind of partial to my 2016 Trad and R7. I can check the stats on mine when I get home this...

    How much will removing overs on unpotted pickups help with squeal?

    From what I understand, a microphonic pickup can be caused by the cover or damaged windings. In my case the stock bridge pickup on a 99 R7 would squeal at stage volumes with a full band. I removed the cover and it stopped. There was some old looking goo inside the cover. I got the impression it...
