    Got these free cheap stuff from my neighbour !

    Drum machine is cool. I used to use one of those at a friends house when we jammed. I liked it. I'm sure modern ones sound more realistic, but this had it own sound.

    Thinking about buying a 1973 Fender Twin Reverb - Am I high?

    Wouldn't do it. Not a MV fan on silverface amps. Had both. My main practise amp for years was a 1970 TR, was great, but if I could do it again I wouldn't hesitate and I'd go with a Tone Master, if you want something that big.

    Could someone explain the used pedal market in Japan?

    If you're anywhere near Philadelphia, someone has had a Boss LM-2 on Craigslist for a while at $60. I'd buy it but I don't know what in the world I'd do with it.

    What the heck is up with high action??

    I like the neck as straight as possible, and the strings as low as possible. I used to think I was committing some sort of heresy, but when I read that's the way Tommy Emmanuel sets up his guitars, I felt kind of vindicated.

    Awful song, pedestrian solo, overestimated musician.

    Teles: Where to go from a Baja...

    I sold a Baja right before all the price inflation came about. Wish I had waited, but I just didn't play it. Could have made some more money. I loved the neck girth, but from E to E it just wasn't wide enough. I kept pulling the high E off the edge of the fretboard. I much prefer the...

    What was the WORST CONCERT you attended??

    Late 1970's, Javits Auditorium in Princeton NJ. The Doobie Brothers were a last minute replacement for Heart, who I had gotten tickets for. The Doobies were so incredibly boring that my friend fell asleep, and I had to walk around to keep from dozing off. Still bummed about this one...

    Ray Davies appreciation

    Love RD and the Kinks. I'm all in on the early English stuff and the concept RCA albums, but I loose the thread when they sign to Asylum Records and start with the more arena rock stuff. So unique, such a great songwriter.

    I Have An Odd Affinity for Danny Kirwan's Music

    I just got over a jag where I was listening to "Sunny Side of Heaven" about 5 times a day for a week. I've always loved that song.

    Your earliest musical memories

    Christmas music. Loved those old sampler albums from Woolworth's with people like Johnny Mathis and Dina Shore and Robert Goulet. My favorite was A Henry Mancini Christmas. I've just always loved Christmas music, both secular and religious.

    Don't care what anybody says; the little guy in the red hat can farkin' play

    First time I've seen this. I thought it was great. I'm not a follower of Prince's music, but he brought it big time, he was just being Prince. I'm guessing Eric and George would both love it.
