    When’s the last time . . .

    I've been putting up some fencing so incoming sheep/goats etc. can take advantage of the land here. And so I take advantage of the woods sense of privacy. Then I look to my left and Roger the bachelor turkey(been trying to find a heritage breed female for him but so far no luck) is staring at me...

    Would You Play Hard Rock on a Strat With a Natural Finish ?

    Honestly this question confuses me. What possible difference does it make? I always thought people picked whatever guitars they personally liked and played them.

    Preferred Tuning?

    Standard generally, Eb for specific things, sometimes DADGAD or some oddball tuning depending on the song. I think what I like about alternate tunings is they really wake you up to musical possibilities I find oddly thrilling. Sadly the tuning/retuning aspect of it is the syrup of ipecac that...

    What Blues Needs…

    All music is a living thing, thus it grows and changes.. or it dies. The blues are not exempt.

    Would you rather have a $2k guitar with a $500 amp or a $500 guitar with a $2k amp?……and Why?

    What's the appeal of getting a new vintage style Strat with the truss rod in the most inconvenient place?

    I have no problem with it, in fact I rather like the heel adjust. But after all.

    Would you rather have a $2k guitar with a $500 amp or a $500 guitar with a $2k amp?……and Why?

    Are you saying you can't put together something like a strat or tele with your skillset, make it a decent sounding player with a $500.00 budget?

    Any Nazareth fans out there?

    Always liked Nazareth too.. Saw them twice in the 70's. I know this might make me odd man out, but I thought they were only ok live-show wise and mostly preferred the records.

    I Think I Am Done

    Always makes me a bit sad when I see/watch someone have this kind of personal reckoning. I know a number of painters/sculptors whose careers seemed to be on the cusp of something great, only to have it evaporate right before their eyes. Most have had long careers of almost there, eventually...

    Avatar sequel

    I'll probably watch it, just because.. But I have a hard time choosing which film I liked less, Airbender or Avatar.

    When are you on Strat Talk?

    Music theory is kind of like cartography. We can only draw maps of places we've already seen.

    Sure you might have seen a place, but a good map tells you how to get back there, how you got there in the first place and maybe ways to avoid common pitfalls on the journey..

    They say it never rains in sunny California

    That is one great looking loaf of bread! Almost inspired me to: Get on board a west bound 747. Not even think before deciding what to do.

    Demonfx DuelGun…. Duellist Clone

    1. The Dualgun its a "copy" of the Duellist V1 right ? a. Yes 2. Does it make a big difference for the V3 ? a. Mostly its still the same, but the V3 supports 9v and 18v. And the V3 allows you to switch the order of the two sides of the pedal, whereas the dualgun does not. Edit: The V3 also has...
