  1. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    About a year ago, I tried auditioning for this dumb little "punk" band. The whole thing was an absolute disaster for many reasons, but worst part came at the end, when I was doing a bunch of really big stretches for some reason. The way I'd always played them involved me bending my fretting hand...
  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Going back to my mini pedalboard plan, 3/5 done so far and next was a low gain drive of some sort. I went through 3 mini pedals: a Wampler Tumnus, and 2 One Control pedals; the Golden Acorn and Lingonberry. All three were great pedals but after using my tried and true Red Jasper as a reference...

    Saw these guys live a few months back and they were easily the best band on that bill. Was anticipating their new album War, and now it's out. And it's awesome. An album of the year contender for me. The singer also is part of rock royalty being the son of the legendary John Farnham. He can...
  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Few months back I owned a second hand Savage after trading a Fireball and a 4x12 cab for it. I ended up owning it for a week and trading it for a Mark V. So basically I had zero time with it since I had no cab. After a year with the AxeFx II XL, I finally decided that digital stuff is not my...
  5. The Car and Bike Forum
    Together with my Dad I've owned this Ford Cortina for 20 years, ever since my Granddad passed away. To most people it's nothing special, it's a base model with a 1.6L engine making a throbbing 75bhp, but to us it means a huge amount due to the family connection. I've known the car my whole life...
  6. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Okay so my wife has some really nice looking barn board (9 ft x 13 inches x 1.5 inches) The boards are flat but the sides are wavy. It's like a tree was fed through a band saw and they didn't bother to make the boards proper rectangles. If I want them to sit flush side by side I will need to...
  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    As the title says, I posted this over at boogie forum, but maybe Matt C can chime in with exact measurments for me on the OS to make sure I have the slant measument right. And then Noodles can chime in on the Traditional straight since I no longer own one, and we can get exact spec's without the...

    It was a Dio morning at work and stumbled across this... This is pretty badass. Girl has some pipes! Listened to this bands other stuff, not as good as a song written by a master IMO.

    The wife and I went to see Straight Line Stitch in Oklahoma City last night... great show, especially Alexis Brown's stage presence. We hung out after the show and Alexis was super sweet to all of her fans... we each took a shot with the band.

  11. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Not like the neck is twisted. So I've had this rgr1570 neck missing a fretboard for god knows how long now. i've had a fretboard for it almost as long. I just measured the nut/24th fret, marked it, and cut it down (routered, more accurately). it lines up great at those points, but the edge of...
