    When I signed up for this forum over five years ago, one of the first people i connected with was the knowledgeable Fezz Parka...

    i'd never been on a music/gear forum before, so i was pretty ignorant about a lot of things (whats a fezz parka mod? - it sounds like it might be a winter coat, turtleneck sweater, and white go-go boots, right?)

    well, let me just say that fezz (Chris) was handing over gems of theory and practice like it was penny candy at the fire dept's new truck housing... In many many ways, both musically and tech stuff, fezz has been my greatest teacher... someday, when the world has moved on and we travel and hang out again, i'm going to play with Chris in real life...

    Happy Birthday Fezz! youre a generous mofo, and you are no champion of ingorance!!! my musical life will never be the same because of you.

    (also, he built the bad ass Fezzter Deluxe that I currently call my own...)

    Thanks...

    A long time ago...someone who was truly great shared with me some of what he knew. Or at least what he thought I could grasp. For you Monte I tried to do the same.
