Lizzy Hale custom guitar and her sound interview. This says $400+ I think but another video I saw her custom Explorer was $2,200+ I would say that’s likely closer in price for a Gibson Explorer. My Epiphone Explorer was over $600. Epiphone is the cheaper brand by Gibson, cheaper wood and other parts.

Foo Fighters to stream a concert of new & old songs on facebook, looks as though it’s only available in the USA though?

Drums are done for the 2nd Tremonti album.

OK, that’s enough. If you don’t want the free U2 album, delete it, and get over it. It was what 2-3 weeks ago. The next day Apple got enough complaints about it, they quickly came up with a free app to delete it from your phone. Delete it, forget about it and move on! I’m going to stop ragging on Metallica, and any group that sounds like Nickleback, and any ’80s hair metal group! Why? Because they have so many fans, that like what they do & inspired the music I listen to today. Guess what……U2 did also!

And take this haters!

Your daily dose of Foo Fighters on Letterman last night.

The Foo signal being tested on Letterman. Pretty good spoof!

Metallica planned to fire drummer Lars Ulrich of Metallica, before the death of bass player Cliff Burton.

The album is in this style hard rock/metal. In Search of Sun

Every guitar player goes through the same thing. Constantly looking for the perfect guitar tone/sound. We all agonize over it thinking, “…….maybe this gadget will work….maybe if I turn this knob this way it’ll work…..if I do this it will sound right….”. All leading up to that moment where you either get it or give up.

Nobody else will really care what one guitar sounds like, as long as the songs are good. I owned the cheapest, loudest guitar amp I could afford. A Randall amplifier that had a muddy sound but was consistent. A solid state amp so I didn’t have to change 6 $90 tubes in it 2-4 times a year. It wasn’t terrible, but it did the trick. I was loud and my volume could keep up with whoever was playing lead guitar. 4 12” speakers in my cabinet $560 brand new and my amp was $410 roughly brand new. I tried many gadgets to have it sound the way I wanted it to. Researching everything on the internet, reading review after review, renting whatever I thought would work to the point that I gave up & settled for what I had.

I knew what I wanted but it would cost me roughly $1300, plus the ongoing issue of replacing the $90 tubes in the amplifier. I couldn’t afford that since I’d get likely $500 for trading in my current amplifier.
