    Benjamin Tod

    Have any of you ever listened to him? I may have posted this before but not long after Jake died I was letting youtube just randomly go from video to video and his song USING AGAIN came on. Hit me like a truck. I played it at least 10 times back to back... grabbed a guitar and learned it. I...

    New (old)amp

    I posted a while back about selling my hot rod deluxe amp and later the guy wanting to sell it back to me. He messaged me, having woman troubles (pretty bad) and saying he was moving to KY and needed money. I told him that he gave me $400 over 5 years ago so I thought $200 was fair since he had...

    I can't believe it didn't fall

    I am not sure I can adequately describe how rotten this thing is /was. My brother is friends with a guy who owns a tree service. This guy was dropping g off a load of wood to my son next door so I asked if he could look at a tree on my property that looked to be splitting. He said "YEP THAT...

    If you were buying a les paul style

    I have the itch for a new guitar. I have too many acoustics and only 2 electrics. A strat and a Tele both of which I built. I think I want a les paul.

    Question for the singers

    Recently, I have been losing my voice, or rather PART of my voice during gigs. My last 3 gigs (I canceled the 4th) my voice starts getting really raspy about halfway through.

    Would any of you happen to play mandolin?

    I have a shure in ear that I bought used. The belt clip was broken off the reciever and a huge paperclip black taped on but they worked. My last couple of gigs they started making a "popping" and hissing sound. I don't know exactly how to describe it but think.of the old flashbulbs (anyone...

    Most embarrassing stage moment

    What are some embarrassing stage moments for you guys that gig? I had one happen Saturday. There was a band following me. I was playing to NO ONE except the band waiting, my wife and maybe 3 people. I wrote a pretty decent song called MY HAT MAKES ME COUNTRY and I intro the song by talking...

    Everyone probably already knows this

    But in case some doesn't I just bought one of these. Used it for the first time today. Plugged my pedal board right into it. I can't believe how much air this moves and is very quiet. Air flow can be adjusted up and down.

Monday night I had a demo and during the demo someone asked me if I had another job and I told em I played music.

A couple of weeks ago my brother called me and asked what I was doing and if my guitar was tuned up. I...
