This maybe is old news (or not?), but I just saw it...
So, releasing of Naked Tracks have made yet another part of guitar playing - expensive...

Does Steve realy need all the money he can pour out of his fans pockets?

What ever happened to peace, love and good happiness stuff?
When has it become business, sales and big bucks stuff?

The tracks in question (for the most part) were commercially released backing tracks from Hall Leonard books and the like (such as the Naked Vamps Series). Putting those tracks online for free download without permission of the holders of the copyright is piracy.

There are many people involved in creating the books and backing track cd's that go with them, and all these people are trying to earn a living.
Where's the peace, love and good happiness stuff in robbing these people of their income by providing their owned product for free? Sorry, but that's just not the way things work in the real world.

In any case, this has been discussed several times so this thread ends right here and now.
