  1. Or perhaps "Van" is short for Vanguard. Or maybe the owner liked to keep this guitar in his Dodge CaraVan. Just kidding.
  2.

Love those Boomer inlays, though!
  3. The Japanese Scepter is $500 cheaper on Reverb. Classic eBay! https://reverb.com/ca/item/38200508-hamer-usa-1987-scepter
  4. This one looks like it is in better shape than the first one anyway!
  5. Although I agree with you that the hour long Drums and Space in concert were pretty boring, I still find Jerry Garcia's solos within the Grateful Dead compelling. Unlike so many other players at the time, he did not rely on pentatonic scales, and he plays very melodically. Figuring out his solos for myself really helped me to grow musically. For fans that were sick of being accused of listening only to the Dead, Jerry also created the Jerry Garcia Band, which played covers. This is my favourite "Jerry Band" tune, in which he performs the rare trick of playing a cover better than the origin
  6. I am sorry, but I do not recognize the similarity between the music of Steely Dan and that of Tears for Fears. I love Steely Dan for its jazzy changes, top-shelf guitar solos, and yes, their intelligent lyrics, even though I usually do not pay much attention to lyrics at all, with the exception of Bob Dylan, Ani DiFranco, and the Smiths. If you are going to compare Steely Dan to a 1980s pop band, I see more in common with the Smiths: dark, dark brooding lyrics over happy sounding chord progressions.
  7. Oh, gross! I have never seen this before. I was thinking of these larger sizes.
  8. The woman in the video teaches lessons if you are interested.
  9. My Mesa .50 Caliber was my first good amp (my first was a Fender Champ 12), and then after a few years of playing that, I ordered a brand new Mark I Reissue, which is the only brand new amp that I ever purchased in my over three decades of owning amps. The Mark I is a great amp: 100W of 6L6 tube glory. It is so loud if you want it, yet it sounds good at much quieter volumes using the half-power switch, too. Not a true two-channel amp: it has two separate inputs, but in my opinion, it takes pedals very well (overdrive pedals push you into that liquid lead territory) , and it has a good eff
