    Cranking it!

    So you would think after a few years of owning a 2203 I would've done this already, but I finally got around to playing with the low sensitivity input on the amp. A lot of people think the low input is just padded a few db but actually, it is almost like it's own channel. What makes an early MV...

    When life gives you lemons

    Do you make lemonade, or just get pissed off and start throwing them at people? :laugh2:

    Rockets without fuel?

    NASA successfully tests engine that uses no fuel, violates the laws of physics - Houston Space news | This is just too cool. Wish I could get a better understanding of how it works. At the very least, maybe we will all be able to escape when the end arrives? :laugh2::laugh2...

    Afroman Punches Female Fan

    Afroman Apologizes for Punching a Woman Onstage During a Performance Apparently he "hadn't medicated." Guess a Colt 45 and 2 zig zags really is all he needed. At least his lyrics are honest. :laugh2::laugh2:

    Had a day off so I watched this crazy gem of a movie. I think it may be Jake Gyllenhaal's best role ever, actually. I've seen a lot of films, would call myself a movie buff, and this is one of the few movies that's kept me on the edge of my seat and interested the whole time.

    How many of you are in the stock market?

    Just curious. I recently started. Did some paper trading back in high school and found I was pretty good at it. Now that I've got some extra money I decided I'd give it a real swing. Also paper trading on the side just to get some extra feel for it. I'm not really looking for advice or...

    If CAGED sucks, then what am I supposed to do?

    I'm trying to think of a good way to get myself back into woodshedding and really building up more speed and consistency as a player, and the only way I can think is writing out every scale, every position, for every key, and exercising through every position for a given scale in a given key...

    Some advice picking out the right tubes for a Marshall

    As some of you guys know, I'm currently running my 2203 combo on two power tubes, since one of the four that should be in there blew out. I decided to get some JJ El34Ls, since they look cool and it seems like people say they sound better. However I don't think I'm feeling JJ for the preamp...

    Ever just not really want to do your life anymore?

    I'm pretty sure all my friends think I've gone off the deep end, but I don't really feel close to anyone anymore. And I don't miss it. If I had it my way, I'd have no cell phone, no Facebook - already did away with Twitter and the other stuff... But if I did that there'd be a search party or...

    NPDx2 + a pedal unexpectedly stays on the board

    So, I picked up a Modtone "Vintage" wah and EHX Soul Food, and got some solid jam time in with them today. The Modtone isn't a serious buy for me so much as I wanted a cheap wah with a somewhat vintage sound. Vox offerings sound better to my ear but the cheaper ones are majorly lacking in...

    NAD / head-scratcher

    Picked up a mid-late '80s Marshall 2203 combo today. Amp sounded absolutely killer in the store and I've been jonesing for a good loud combo. Something that's not as big as a half stack, which I had to get rid of. I do have a huge WTF with it, though. I got her home, and it's got vintage tubes...

    Picked up this really cool telecaster the other day

    I was at a really cool local guitar shop that deals in almost all higher end used gear earlier this week, and this custom tele caught my eye. Lacquer finish '50s style maple neck, with the back sanded down and sealed so it's super smooth to play. Regular telecaster neck pickup, strat middle...

    What makes an amazing rock song?

    So, I'm in a bit of a songwriting slump. It feels like not much of what I come up with lately really pops. And it's not so much that I can't work a song until it's right, because I can, it's that I don't really know what I want it to sound like. I want to write music that is literally ****ing...

    I don't usually do this, but I have to break down.

    The last few months of my life have been killing me. It's getting to the point where I wake up in screaming agony and the only reason I can get out of bed is I'm so pissed I can't get back to sleep. I've had so many friends turn out to be completely awful people, so many people actually make me...

    The joys of getting mugged

    Being that I travel a lot and I'm pretty busy, I figured this would happen to me at some point. I was just really hoping it wouldn't be now. I was out with a friend last night and we both got jumped by these two guys, they got basically everything I had on me - my wallet, keys, and phone. Which...

    So, the RAs finally got me.

    The fascists who are supposed to run my life in the dorms even though I'm an adult couldn't catch me doing anything all year. I'm good, after all. In fact, I got away with some absolutely heinous shit. For reasons I can't comprehend, some rat tipped them off last night that a few friends and...

    NAD! Marshall 4500 half stack

    I'll report more later. I can't feel anything other than pain in my back at this point. Not from the weight but how much of a bitch it was to get the cab into and out of a BMW 5 series. Could've sworn I had more space than that. Unless the cab will fit into the trunk with zero fuss, I am never...

    Picking up a JCM 900 half-stack

    I know everyone disses on these, especially the 5881 models, but I found a really clean rig at my local music store that absolutely screams. It's on hold for me, just waiting a couple days for a check to clear before I can dump the money for it. I'm stoked. I am gonna have to rearrange some...
