    I cracked up when i saw this. I could've spent the time and money.... on lessons... :) But we'll never learn will we. That said... I'm honestly.. (truly honest) set with my "pedal board" my time and money goes to guitar, amp, lessons,.. and maybe girlfriend.

    Heh, i was so... shocked when i found all these old pictures.. The clyde wah is the only pedal that's been with me from the VERY beginning. I started out with a Keeley TS9, a DD6 and the fulltone wah. That was about... 5-6 years ago. Heh.

    The power supply is just a power board which have built in adapters. I'm situated in Australia and a lot of things are not cheap so i buy a lot from overseas. That just lets me plug in international plugs without needing a bulky adapter.. Handy :p. I'm still waiting for two fuel tank jnrs to power my board though, that 1spot is just a temporary solution.

    Ok, i totally recognize that board, and I think I remember that second one was from a youtube video I watched a while back.

    Is that girl in the one video actually playing guitar?

    When I scroll down through these pictures, I can totally imagine what was going on inside your head as the months went by. I've been playing for 23 years, but I really got into the boutique pedal thing only recently, about 13 months ago, and I can remember where my thinking was at as time went on.
    By the way, anybody with Comcast should check out their e-mail. They must be launching some new format or something. It's going real well, guys! I still haven't been able to access mine. That's Monday for you.

    Just don't take it for granted. Use all that stuff you have and become the best player you can. At least that way they'll know it was all worth it.

    That's good. Do you find it's harder for you to play for a few relatives than playing on stage in front of a much larger crowd of total strangers? That's how it is with me. I would have an easier time playing at Giants Stadium in front of thousands than I would playing for a few relatives at a family reunion.

    What did that Seymour Duncan tweak fuzz sound like? Obviously you were rid of it pretty quickly, but I've always been curious what they compare to. Man they're ugly though!
