I can't say for certain what he means by that.. I would probably have to read more of the article to get a better idea. What dis-service is Satriana doing to inhibit the growth of someone who's learning to play, would be my question.

By the way..


I DID NOT want this to turn into a discussion about mayer, his ideas, or anything else OTHER than 2 of his guitars...So can we please keep it on the level here? I just wanted a vote and maybe a snipit as to why. That's all I'm asking for here.

Cannot do that. Its a Marine Sanctuary so we can't pollute it with your dead corpse [oxymoron?] -er I mean your funeral sending out your body a fair well on a surf board. Laughing


Hey I'll be fish food, not pollution RR- I promise not to pollute my body any further until death. Will that make a difference? LOL =)

Aw, you are well ahead of me => Chark, er Shark bait!

A bit on the semi-serious side, Monterey Bay to Farallon Islands to up north of San Francisco is known "Blood Triangle" infested Great Whites ...and I'm not talking about the band. Laughing

Rolling Eyes
I originally made this post so some of you could possibly help me in my situation, which doesn't (yet) include making plans about what's going to happen or where my body is going to go after I die. Helpful choices in that though..
Please, lets stay focused?


Which of the two strats do you like, and why?

Hey Sharkdude started it. I was protecting my ocean. Laughing

Black Strat to me associates with Clapton. CBS headstock => Richie Blackmore

Stay Focus: Shocked
I vote Monterey. Have your girlfriend do the artwork, then a light mist of clear trying to seal the artwork. Once a good layer builds up, then apply the regular clear coats. Uh, I assume you know this.

About a month ago I planted some sugar peas in my garden and they are starting to come up.
Some didn't emerge.
Should I re-plant where the vacant ones are or should I just by some frozen peas and forget the garden?

Do the front one way and the back the other. Very Happy

I never bother with scattering ashes, it's easier to dismember and scatter the pieces. Shocked

yeah. that was a...good one...
while what I was trying to do by keeping you all "corraled" was to just prevent a pissing match that I've seen before and have grown sick of..I also just wanted a simple opinion and a reason why..I wasn't being rude by asking to keep it focused. I'm also not trying to be rude now..but when someone asks for help, being a nusance doesn't really help, and being a funny nusance can be tolerated but being a nusance just to rub someone the wrong way - when they're asking for help - hasn't ever been my thing. So please forgive me if I don't take it the right way.
I really don't know why I made this post to begin with, as I figured it could turn into something similar to this, but I really thought with you guys it'd be a little different.. Rolling Eyes

I do appreciate those that have voiced their opinions (on the guitar..)
