  1. Not really. I switched to 10-38 because I felt like the low strings were out of balance (too loud) compared with the high strings. I didn't find out until later that Hendrix used 10-38. I have to purposely play a little lighter on the low strings but once I got used to that it worked out.
  2. What do you say to the bass player standing on your front porch? How much is the pizza?
  3. I played in a band with a female singer who had the same idea, except she was going to copyright all of them in her name. Then later on she took songs that we, the band, had written together and copyrighted them in only her name. Good times!
  4. Why would anyone fake an Epiphone? Were there fake Ford Pintos?
  5. I kinda like them, especially the Rebel in Champaign.
  6. $1300 isn't too far out of line for an American made guitar.
  7. They're all worthy of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in my opinion. Todd should be in the Rock'n'Roll Genius Hall of Fame if there was such a thing.
  8. I'm the main songwriter in the original band that I'm in. For that reason I feel like I have a level of ownership in the band that is different than the level of ownership of the other band members. I don't know if they agree or not.
  9. How about a Les Paul through a 100 watt Marshall stack? That sounds like a LOT of recording. How many VCR's do you have? I would like to hear recordings of Native American music that influenced early blues. Do you have any links?
  10. Let's all get together and vote this Administration OUT!

  11. The band just learned "Blow" by Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars. I still have to refine the solo.
  12. I'm not a Tele guy but I have one. I just changed out the pickups on it and liked it a lot better. After I started using it the other guitarist in the band started using HIS Tele. Before that he mostly played a Les Paul, occasionally the Tele. But since I started liking my Tele he's used his exclusively. Is that weird? Two Les Paul players in the same band doesn't seem strange, but two Teles does, or is that just me?
  13. Yes, I know that "Mary Jane's Last Dance" is super tired and every band plays it, but it still works, and the girls love it, which is why every band plays it. We just learned it and our singer wants to play the harmonica part. What key harmonica would be used if the song is in Am? Thanks!
  14. There are many examples of songs that start with a chorus, but are there any that start with the bridge?
  15. I write music but terrible words and I've come to the conclusion that what I really need is an old school Rogers and Hammerstein or Elton John/Bernie Taupin type lyricist. Does such an animal exist anymore? Where would one find someone like that at the local level. Just an ad?
