    Why is downsizing guitars so difficult?

    I think the real problem is actually selling them. Acquiring use to be so easy in the glory days of tgp and craigslist. Deals everywhere and not enough cash or time to get them all. Now it seems like there are way more sharks in the water on the selling end of things. So like Scrooge McDuck...

    Boomer Bends revisited.

    Nothing more fun than playing stuff people don’t think are cool. Music doesn’t really respect these kind of imaginary boundaries

    $7,500 Budget for New Home Stereo ... Suggestions???

    I remember the first time I heard a parasound amplifer, it was a halo series with surround sound. It was like the heavens opened. Granted my experience is limited but that convinced me that lotsa wattsa from a kick ass amp can sound glorious. Wish I could remember what speakers the system...

    Saw Dead and Co for the first time last night…it was very “meh”.

    Driving to Missoula to see Phil and Friends at an outdoor Venue this Friday. Phil has surrounded himself with young hungry players who go for it live. I much prefer his shows. They also tend to be smaller venues which really helps.

    Probably one of the worst album covers of all time

    When you put up Push Push as your worst album cover without mentioning what a killer record it is.......well that's on you.

    The Cult - Love

    Dreamtime is awesome too. BoneBag is awesome. That album doesn't have the AC/DC power thing going on, it has more of a vibrato laden thing which is just awesome. Go West is awesome too. Early Cult is so good

    I can't see the dots on the top of my fretboard

    I bought a cheap 16th inch hole punch off Amazon for like five bucks and just got run-of-the-mill white sticker paper and punched holes in that. With heavy play time the dots last about a month Before they need to be reapplied

    Great Rick Rubin interview with Frusciante

    Man, one minute into this interview and I'm blown away by John's detailed memory and deep dive answers into the first question about the first time he heard about the Chili Peppers. This is going to be cool

    In your opinion, who was the King of tripped out psychedelic guitar madness?

    I can’t believe Both chrome and Helios Creed were mentioned in the first page of the thread! I’m no Uber fan or anything but I have several albums by chrome. I saw Helios creed in 1992, by far the most acid soaked guitar I have ever witnessed in my life. And it was just his way of doing things...

    Jerry Garcia Band - did you see them?

    I actually "got" what was happening musically with the GD after attending a JGB show. I was 18 and travelling with my girlfriend. Met my brother and his wife at Shoreline to see JGB (this was around '93). Girlfriend and I were determined to take shrooms that day and we did find some. First...
