    SETUP: Basics of Intonation

    Thanks for doing this @Ed Seith . I know I knew less than nothing when I got my first guitar which by the way had a Floyd on it. It looked cool. Once it was in tune it tended to stay, but getting there can be an adventure when you don't know the basics. Any one can sound pro on an in tune...

    FRIZZLE FRY by Primus

    I love Frizzle Fry! After see the "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" video on MTV, I borrowed Frizzle Fry from a friend and dubbed it to cassette and spent the entire marching band season listening to the album on the bus. I loved Larry LaLonde's playing so much. It was so weird and different from...

    Back in the saddle again! I'm back! Took a bit of a break for the holidays. I was playing a lot leading up to the beginning of December with a cover group. I'm out!

    Anyone have an electronic pedalboard ?

    I have a bunch of pedals, but who wants to carry that mess around. So I have one of these because I am cheap and it sounds great. I run it through the aux in of my Roland Cube 30. I can carry my my guitar, amp and small pedal board and still have a hand free to open the door. :) $299 on Amazon...

    Guitar names?

    First two guitars, a squire strat and a strat copy, were named Tad and Eagle. The copy had an eagle graphic on the body. Those have been retired. Now I just have a number one and number two in different tunings. Don'y plan on naming any other guitars.

    Top mount vs recessed Floyd Rose.

    Depends. You can still "float" a top mount or you can crank the springs down and have it rest on the body. If you want to be able to pull up you should float it. Setup and tuning will be the same as a recessed bridge. Otherwise, setup is almost as easy as a fixed bridge. EVH always let his...

    Boss Metal Zone Distortion pedal

    I tried one of these in a music store in the 90's and could not get it to sound good. Probably because there were too many knobs. Irony is one of my favorite distortion pedals now has 6 knobs, the Mooer 005 Micro preamp.

    Songs I need to learn this week like this one by the Eagles. The dueling solo is going to be fun.
