    newer bands with that old school vibe

    Tough call, Pink Floyd were pretty damn unique. A very special band and chemistry. You might want to give the following three bands a listen: Porcupine Tree, Airbag and Freedom to Glide. They're all Floydian in their overall approach, but unique enough to still sound original.

    newer bands with that old school vibe

    A lot of talk about the state of rock music lately. I wrote my two cents in a short essay here: At the end I included a list of contemporary bands with old-school vibe (feel free to jump straight to...

    I Love rock-n-roll (an essay - rock isn't dead after all!)

    It seems to me that there has been a lot of talk lately about the death of Rock and Roll. Precipitated by it's "rebirth" thanks to GVF. How often have we seen them described as "the saviors of rock", or the view that "at least they play their own instruments". As if rock had disappeared off...

    Post Your Black (Beauty) Les Paul Customs

    Hah, great pic! I love it! This has nothing to do with posting beautiful guitar pics, but in the spirit of your fun picture I thought I'd share this. What do you get when you cross The Ramones with Hockey?...The Hanson Bros from Vancouver BC, of course. Enjoy (with a grain of salt and a dose...

    julian lage

    Yup, I enjoy listening to Lage as well, check out this Clip with Cline: The current crop of NY downtown scene guitarists certainly doesn't lack for talent. Here's one of my favorites: Gilad Hekselman:

    Maybe rock died with Lemmy.

    Thanks, @MikeyTheCat , for posting the clips. I had a total blast watching those this morning! I saw Motorhead for the first time in 1986 (w/ Cro Mags!) when I was sixteen and probably have seen them ~20 times since (including twice at the Hammersmith Odeon in Dec '89 in London...two killer...

    The #1 Discovery To Advance Your Playing Skills

    This ^ Playing with other people completey changed the game for me as well. That would be my only decent advice for a beginner. Go find some folks to play with, or play at an established jam, I've found most players very welcoming to newbies...and it's damn fun!

    All Them Witches

    These guys are simply fantastic. further proof that the state of rock music is as healthy as ever. The reactions of people to Greta Van Fleet, as if they're the saviours of rock music, says more about a sheepish fan base than the state of rock music in the 21st century. It's a shame that many...

    New Member! Need advice on first Les Paul!

    Welcome to the forum!! Back in the early nineties I played a 1979 silverburst custum, I don't remember how much it weighed but it was easily the heaviest guitar I've ever played. I had purchased it in '89 for 650 bucks, and sold it in '95 for a few hundred more...sure wish I'd hung on to it...

    Your guitar or stable of guitars (collections?):

    It's kinda cool that @Cedarburger resurrected this thread as I was going to start a similar themed one. I'm out of work due to the gov't shutdown and would like to spend my time scrolling through MLP folks collections (in between playing my own guitars and working through the inevitable house...

    Allman Betts Band

    Yup. I really dig Derek. I've seen him with the Allmans probably 'bout 20 times since he joined. I'm a big fan of his dirty slide style. I also like his renditions of Coltrane songs when the DTB were still together. Unfortunately I don't much care for the new band, to my ears they just...

    Left hand tendonitis

    I was able to clear my tendonitis through a combination of soft tissue treatments w/ ice and stem (from PT in a sports medicine clinic) AND Turmeric (specifically Curcumin Meriva, derived from Tumeric). It's been years since I've had a re-occurrence, but I still take the Curcumin. The guy I...

    David Gilmour jam

    Came across this video and thought that some of you Gilmour fans might enjoy it. Performed on December 13, 2018 during The Pretty Things farewell concert. Dave played during five or six songs but this "LSD" jam stands out. Dick Taylor's playing is pretty smokin' as well. Enjoy
