If you get tired it may mean that you really want to do something else. Like watch a movie or eat chips, drink a lot of Soda Pop and Gell out on the couch or something. :twisted: Surely there is nothing wrong with being a Couch Potato and frying yourself on good wholesome TV all night long. :twisted...

Well maybe you already know about MIT in Hollywood. Then there is LAMA in the LA area as wel. http://www.lamusicacademy.com/ http://www.mi.edu I would rather hang out in Hollywood then Boston myself. The weather is nice, and the industry is in Hollywood. Then again when you are that good it does not...

Acoustic G3

I read an interview with Joe Satriani where he said that he would like to play acoustic guitar for a year. I think that would be so cool. I wonder if anyone in here would go for an Acoustic G3 or even a set in G3 that is all acoustic? Then, who would the 3rd man be? I would go for Paco de Lucia or T...

The bottom line is this is the perfect dvd for learning the manipulation of the trem. In all fascists. I never had you pegged as a NAZI !! I thought that they were trying to eradicate the Futurist School back in the '30's and that Portamento and Glissandos were some of the sounds in that skool? I j...

:lol: I want to open an art gallery with a toilet in the middle of it. Then I could sample the sounds people make on it and call the Exhibit C.R.A.P- Counterfiet Rhythms against Porcelin. :twisted:

Ricky Garcia! You are my type of guitar man! I like hear about people that mainly like to play the guitar just to play it. I would not be happy teaching I think as a career. I personally do not believe in it in this day and age anyway because I have a certain additude towards students that just want...

Yeah I guess that is my life story "playing the guitar out of all odds." I used to live in my uncles log cabin in Northern California off the grid back in the early '70s on a homestead, and that is where I learned to play the guitar. What a great era I tell you. No electricity and plenty of room for...

Well expanding into more media is certainly one idea of 'making it' I have abandoned all aspects of conventionally 'making it' to the point that I like playing just the acoustic more then ever sans electronic(a) alltogether. Next, I just need to find a band of semi-nomads that are willing to live in...

I notice the word "Torture," and "Waiting," keeps on popping up. This actually makes me feel more Tortured while Waiting. Now I just sit Waiting while being Tortured. Listening to Shut up and play 'yer guitar is just not enough. I feel tortured waiting while listening, and not seeing the little blac...

I notice that Mikey used the word "SOON," and as an Ancient Greek Cognate soon could be anything less then Eternity. I am not sure that "Soon," makes me feel any better really. I guess this means that when I go up to heaven and God looks down on Phrygie well see that he is good because he delt with ...

The Frank Zappa Guitar Book

The Frank Zappa Guitar Book. I just can't live with this book being out of print anymore, and need to purchase a copy. :cry: Is there just anyway in my life that this can be done! I suppose anything is possible right? Maybe someone could be Flex-able enough to release a new limited edition or someth...

Well I just do not see how it can be done in this day and age. First you have all of this free stuff on the internet. In otherwords a over-saturated free supply of selfish people demanding everything for nothing. Then you have the millions of people that studied music and have music degrees. Even mo...
