    Ever feel you are putting hard work and effort into learning material not many will want to hear ?

    I just spent the last half hour learning to play and messing around with Harry Styles Adore You just because it popped into one of my feeds. I have no intention of playing that song ever again. Tomorrow I will probably have forgotten the song. I don't think learning a song is ever hard work, it...

    Who do you currently like for road/flight/ATA cases?

    I've seen so many stock options available I can't imagine a need for a custom built ATA case, even ones that fold out into complete desks. Stock options seem endless. What is your custom need?

    Attending Winter NAMM 2020 - what should I do/see?

    If you are not from the area I say skip it and go to Disneyland, LA, Topanga . . So many more worthwhile things to do in that area.

    Is having a website important in marketing your cover band or does Facebook suffice?

    It isn't professional for a business to not have a website. You will be perceived as less competent than your competition that does have a website. As a result you will be valued less. I would expect a lower price from band that just operates off of a Facebook page than one that has a working...

    Do you think electric guitar will ever be the voice of a future generation?

    I seldom see a 20-something tenant move in to one of my units that does't own a electric or acoustic guitar. I have no idea if they play them, but they all seem to own one. Seems to be a very common instrument from what I can tell.

    Which is a better home use amp? Rectoverb or Mark V:25?

    I use 50 and 100 watt amps when jamming with acoustic guitar players. Being too loud is never an issue and the amp still sounds great. I just don't expect it to sound like a cranked amp.

    Presence or treble

    I have two presence controls on my Mesa rack, preamp and power amp. For the preamp I have it on five for all setting, seldom change it. Beyond that it doesn't seem to do much when I do change the presence settings. The power amp presence I dial to taste. I make changes depending on speakers...

    Changing Strings While Performing

    I've changed strings in a couple minutes in the middle of jam sessions. Wouldn't want to do it on stage, is why I bring at a back up guitar. I'm kind of surprised he didn't hand the guitar to someone and get handed his backup, especially for a gig in front of that many people.

    Do multi-channel amps suck tone

    Don't know of any amp that sounds exactly like a louder unplugged electric guitar.

    Phones are computers. For that matter my phone has more computational might than the laptop I'm browsing the web with right now.

    Used vs New - is there a tipping point?

    For items I can buy at a store I aim for 50% off retail price, but will go as high as only 30% if the item is expensive enough.

    Death/Black/Doom/extreme metal

    My experience has been that everything is great to listen to while on acid/shrooms. Drugs make even the worst music sound awesome.

    Do You Notice the Musicians in the Crowd?

    I've never looked or noticed, but I have met other musicians through conversations outside clubs while smoking cigarettes during set breaks.

    Transparent? What it is.

    The semantics are very important. Perhaps the most important aspect of this site. If your definition of words you use to describe tone are different than my definitions then everything we write to describe the qualities of a pedal, amp, or speaker is meaningless and this forum becomes a...

    The Who's Pete Townshend: "We sort of invented heavy metal"

    Iommi was 20 years old when this was recorded. I don't think it sounds anything like The Who.

    Triaxis - 5 Killer Tones

    The Triaxis and Mesa Mark amps in general do not sound "organic", they sound "electric". That is the quality that makes them great "electric" guitar amps.
