  1. the location of the pick-up selector switch on a les paul. especially if you play round the rhythm humbucker. thank gawd fer duct tape....
  2. my hearing's pretty compressed now. like i'm wearin earplugs all the time. the ringin ain't constant. just occassional and random as fark. addicted to amplification. oh well, yolo....
  3. soundgarden was the perfect mix of zeppelin and sabbath. rip chris....
  4. one of modern rock's greatest frontmen. that bein said, heroine's a helluva drug....
  5. yeah, i'm horrible at interaction. can't have a decent conversation to save my life. if i was more sociable, i can imagine life being a lot easier. but then again, prolly wudda never spent nearly as much time as i have with the guitar....
  6. i'm a big fan of the sweet, tube-distortion sounds produced by the clean/rhythm channel of a carvin x-100b turned all the way up. my neighbors, not so much....
  7. yeah, reining in addiction is one of the tougher battles in life. good luck....
  8. personally, my dream guitar is a mint (if one exists) 1960 les paul standard. i'd play it once and then put it in a closet and under a glass case to just leer at everyday. if i only had six-figures to burn....
  9. yeah, i remember catchin the 'mod' bug. first, it was taking my lp classic to the local custom shop for legit repairs like a broken jack and plastic plate or a fret dress. then, i started asking questions bout the after-market products in the display cases. next thing i know, my lp's got a bone nut, active pups, graphite saddles and all locking hardware. ultimately, i'm happy with the way my axe plays and sounds even if it ended up costing an arm and a leg....
  10. socal temps gunna be droppin down to the low 70s with a chance of rain this weekend. oh the horror....
  11. been in the 80s in socal for the last week. yeah, we don't get winter here....
  12. yeah, strictly a listener/spectator til i started smokin the ganja. i don't even play my favorite music genres (doo-wop, easy listening, r&b, classic rock, new wave). just whatever's come easiest (hardcore, thrash, grind)....
  13. smokin weed. pretty much everyone i'd get baked with owned a guitar. at some point, i started fiddlin round with one. the rest is history....
  14. more like summer and fall. lack of precipitation pretty much eliminates winter and spring....

  16. yeah, those freezin 60 degree afternoon temps last week were tough to take. glad the weather's back to normal again.... :D/
  17. yeah, i've been using d'addario chromes medium gauge (flat wound 13-56 with a wound 3rd) on my lp for a while now. i've considered going light-top/heavy-bottom but keep forgettin to ask my tech to set it up. anywho, i've gotten used to the heavy-top. afraid the change might feel funny to my hands. besides, i don't really bend strings all that much anyway....
  18. yeah, i'm self-taught and play with a punk rock ethos: hard, fast and loud. my compositions are mainly a mix of thrash and grind with a sludgy breakdown or two in em....
  19. this. i go to the guitar when mentally outta sorts which ends up bein a lot of the time. convert my emotions into sound. afterwards, i'm refreshed and functional again. my timing and feel just isn't all that good when my head's straight....
  20. yeah, i sacrifice a bit of technical ability with 13s fer what i consider a fatter (bass) tone. i also strum real hard and find that thick strings and pick gauges seem to last longer....
  21. yeah, i don't miss the headache of string winding. oh the joy of locking tuners....
  22. yeah, i stopped using gorilla snot when dunlop rolled out the max-grip jazz III picks....
