    Starting from scratch

    Can I say one thing - and apologies up-front. You can't self-teach. You can read, and learn. Now, insofar as the 'self-taught' prophetic statements go, I suggest you actually find a teacher. Why? BAD HABITS start with self-paced learning or fundamentally from using or citing a single...

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

    Have a cup of tea and go sit in your chair, read the comics before you list it on stealbay. Maybe have a snooze grandpa. Don't want to get your blood pressure up too high now! If you want to repeat the spray-per-view commentary posts, there are plenty of other fora to do it in. Here is not the...

    Would You Buy A Laptop From Amazon?

    Get corp EPP discount buying mac from apple store, so no point in me shopping elsewhere. Been that way for at least the last 15 years. PC's I shop around for what I want and haven't needed a build for many years now. Also, rugged laptop manufacturers are few and far between so ordering is...

    How long does it take Olympic white to turn yellow?

    First world problems....:whistling: If it's such an issue, buy another colour. Even poly will yellow with age, and even if you leave it in a case. You cannot turn time backwards - and even if you could it would still age as you went back in time, trying to prove it to yourself. Not even the...

    Been thinking about picking up one of these Duesenberg guitars.

    New Synth Day: Roland Juno DS61

    It's very easy to get caught up in latest synth for this or that etc. It's a consuming occupation. DS is solid. Enjoy it. Every synth takes a good while to get comfortable and familiar with. I've had my pc3k88 for almost a decade and it still surprises me. Don't get me started on the Prophet...
