    Are you feeling like?

    Love Sigur Ros, like other bands in what I think of as celestial darkness (stuffed in the same box as Dredg, Oceansize, Steven Wilson & Porcupine Tree, etc., but next gen) I keep it out of sight and listen privately while walking my dog or on long drives. For me not really uplifting but...

    Sorry I didn't capture the essence of the thread, came across as whining, but I'm glad it wasn't so. No pontification allowed, got it.

    Are you feeling like?

    There are 3 ways you can assess the times. First, you can compare the times with your own opinion of what the times should be like. Second, you may compare the times with your life experience and determine whether there were better times during your lifetime or not. And third, you could compare...

    Maybe the 70's was a less stupid time, are you feeling like we do?

    Are you feeling like?

    Well I suppose I could be living 100 years ago during the beginning of the industrial revolution and watch my grandchildren lining up for their 12 hour factory shift. Or maybe 500 years ago, when the concept of leisure or time off could only be granted by the Grimm reaper. Or 1000 years ago...

    Rock Me - Great White

    Pentatonic mush my ass! Way to shred it Ralph, some intricate runs in the mix, especially that last solo. Love the rhythm on this, you squeezed some sweet sounds from that beautiful guitar. Very cool indeed.

    This is badass! Great work Mike... I know you've been working on this, and it certainly paid off! Your riffing and soloing sound very seasoned and the tone is killer. You rock!

    The feel of a Fender VS the feel of a Gibson

    Main reason I like the Strat is the comfortable/contoured body shape and overall balance when playing sitting down. The LP's sharp edges are beautiful but not the most comfortable. I prefer the thicker necks, which are much more prevalent on LP's than Strats. Took me a while to find a strat with...

    Are you still with the mother/father of your first child?

    mine got divorced when I was 15, my younger siblings and I endured the slow, drawn out demise of a very bad marriage over a period of several years.
