    Hello there. I have a question. Is there a way to get blank CDs the quality of the ones that are used for signed bands? You know, the ones that are white mirrors, not green or blue like the ones you buy in those cheap jewel cases? If not, what is the best quality of disks and cases you can...

    I've been doing a lot of Mastodon cover videos here lately, so i got to thinking to myself.... "self", i said, "what is some other good music that is down a whole step that you should learn while you've got a guitar in that tuning?".

    What do you guys think? I've driven plenty of fast cars but I still can't think of anything that was more fun than my dad's 1970 911. It was simple, slightly dangerous, and not at all fast by modern standards, but once you got it going it felt absolutely amazing.

    I've got a wah pedal that belongs to a friend of mine's dad. He complained that it sounded like shit, so, I told him I'd see what I could do. I have done the "Vocal Mod" with a 68K resistor, which helped a bit, but I want this thing to absolutely bitch with the toe down. In the toe up position...
