    Saw Marc Ford on Tuesday...

    ...at the Magpie Salute concert with Rich Robinson and Sven Pipen and Matt Slocum (and a great singer named John Hogg). That dude can play! Such touch and finesse. Great sense of melody and counter-melody. I had a gig yesterday (Thursday) and I swear my playing improved just by being in his...

    How to remove stickers...

    I was unsure where to put this but.... I just picked up a nameless Japanese P-Bass copy off of Craigslist for $50. Looks to be late seventies / early 80's (judging from others I've seen / had from that era). Sounds just like the real deal but...it has a band sticker under strings by the...

    Epiphone ES335 pro and comparison to Gibson 335 review

    Earlier this year, I finally bought a used Gibson ES-335 and, in my cover band, it quickly became my Number 1. I was always very curious about these guitars, but being a solidbody guy for all my life, I never really gave them a chance until I got to play one at a rehearsal for the entire time...

    After just putting it back on my pedalborad, I kicked my RAT off...

    Omg es-335!!

    I've never really played a Gibson es-335 except for very brief moments here and there. Yesterday was the first day I had a chance to play one for a period of time in a band situation. My band mate has this 1979 that he, at most, plays on two songs (that we were not even playing last night)...

    What pedal(s) sounded fine on their own....but failed miserably in a band setting?

    For me it was the Big Muff. On it's own it sounded like the hammer of the Gods. Absolutely huge. I thought I found the secret weapon. I made the mistake of playing it live at a gig before trying it out at practice with the band. Big mistake. I had a solo break coming up, stomped on it and...

    I saw Van Halen last night

    Let me start off by saying that I was never more than the most casual of fans (fan is even way too strong of a word - I only own the first record still on vinyl). I went primarily because, as a hack of a guitarist, I felt I owed it to myself to see Edddie Van Halen in person at least once...

    I have officially lost my hope in humanity....

    Talk about self centered narcissism... The sister of the man accused of killing nine people at Emanuel AME Church has launched an online campaign to raise money to pay for her wedding and honeymoon after a planned June ceremony had to be cancelled in the wake of the massacre. Amber Roof has...

    NPD(sort of)...MXR 108 Classic Fuzz

    In the never ending quest for fuzz, I picked up a MXR 108 Classic Fuzz a few weeks ago. As Fuzz is often so fickle, I wanted to put it through the paces in a few different scenarios before passing any judgement. Now with several practices with different bands and amps, as well as a gig under...

    What gives smokers the right....

    ...to litter all over my city's streets without repercussions? I'm driving behind a car today and lo and behold a 1/2 smoked cigarette comes flying out of the driver's side window and lands on the street. A little later, parking my car, I notice the curb is littered with hundreds, if not...

    So I played a Line 6 Spider the other day...

    My drummer picked one up so there would be always one around if people come over to jam. I thought, "great, now I won't have to lug my amp over for every practice". I had been bringing over my Marshall haze head through a Marshall 4x10 cab. He's a really loud drummer but the Haze keeps up...

    Why did I wait so long???

    I went shopping the yesterday. I was looking to fill the "last" slot in my pedalboard. Right now, the EHX Soul Food is in there but this pedal, while very interesting sounding, does not really fit my style. I've been through a million OD's but I haven't had a distortion pedal in years...

    Need help - Pedals with Keyboards

    I don't know if anyone here can answer this but.... Yesterday I built a pedal board for my original Korg CK-3 "Hammond B3" analog keyboard (not the ck-3 digital one that came out years later). I wanted something to sit on top so I could manipulate sounds on the fly. I was inspired by...
