I have a couple of gift cards that I need to use...
Was gonna buy an amp building book, but already have Dave Hunter's book... then I thought I would buy a Guthrie Govan CD since I have none of his music, but they don't seem to carry his stuff... I did notice he has an instructional book there, but have no idea how good that is....
so pondering still...
how would you spend it? I need some ideas..

I did spend $50 on books yesterday. I already have a copy of the jazz theory book by Levine, lots of good stuff in there.
I got these:

The Clapton and Miles Davis autobiographies are both good...a lot of history detailed in those books.

"The Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollan, and probably some DVD music videos of whatever I was in the mood to see that day. I probably wouldn't buy CDs unless they are on sale. CDs have a diminishing place in my life. It's mp3 for convenience, and vinyl LPs for fidelity and enjoyment. CDs are less convenient than mp3s and usually lose to well-pressed vinyl in the fidelity department. :AOK
