That's one way of getting out of carrying a guitar tech.

He was full of crap and he knew it- It was just immature, last minute attempt at face-saving in front of the half dozen friends that had showed up during their shit-party jam. You have to say it "In Character", like Rik from the Young Ones to get the full effect. Due to the 'Young Ones' portion of ...

Hard to say if your video card (or lack thereof) is the issue for sure. Is there no AGP slot on your MOBO? More than likely, having your DAW run on a built-in video setup is going to be a problem in most cases anyway. As far as Digi goes, I know that if you aren't using a setup that matches their co...

Go down to the photo gallery and look at 6 of 20 (or just read the article): http://money.aol.com/creditdebt/article/usa-today/_a/credit-crunch-puts-some-companies-on/20080324160309990001 I guess eveyone who responded with "I-love-GC-I-have-a-buddy-there-and-I-get-things-near-cost" might want to get...

Pro Tools is EXTREMELY solid. You just have to use an operating system and PT version that are compatible. ...I bet you're not. Go to www.digidesign.com, click on the support tab. Click PTLE, and look under "Compatibility". People who run DAWs on their personal computers are constantly "upgrading" ...

I like American Musical Supply because they allow you to "make 3 payments of" without having to sign up for a credit card. For the best costumer service Sweetwater is tops they will even call you to see how your purchase was, plus they put candy in the packaging. was? hell, they call me to see when...

re: the call back thing....some customers like it and some don't, but make no bones about it, the reason is to hopefully get you to buy more stuff, if not right then, later because you feel good about the original purchase. There's a secondary reason to the call-back: not everyone is an experienced...

I have a friend who used to carry Gibson in his shop (small Mom and Pop and instrument repair service) until they told him he had to stock every model they made to remain a dealer. This is why you wil only find their products in Guitar Center, for the most part. Everybody else told them where to go...

So Mrs. superaction80 and I just were at the local Circuit City and I could help thinking about this whole fracas as I watched a woman leaving the store with a copy of GH 3. And, while there, I noticed the short aisle where they have actual, functioning guitars for sale by such manufacturers as Firs...

thieves wrote:i don't get this... surely gibson is already getting a cut of the profits, all of the GH3 guitars have a gibson logo on them, and most of the guitars in the game are gibsons and epiphones.

Depending how many layers you want in the vocal stack, you can also try some "bozo takes". This doesn't work unless you already have some legitimately decent background tracks to begin with, and you will not want to put these takes out front. But ask your vocalist (or add 'em yourself) to "do one li...

Its also not going to go well for them when Walmart's lawyers point out the Guitar Center (who does sell Guitar Hero) isn't included in their suit.
I guess I should be grateful in the end, though. By fixating on this, I have been able to stop wondering what $1,500/hr to an "escort" gets you.

Paris Hilton can sue you if you use the phrase "That's Hot". No shit. Also, Jeep sued Hummer over the distinctive appearance of the grill (but they lost) So Gibson suing over the distinctive appearance of a Les Paul is not so far-fetched. It still pisses me off though. Fuck 'em - I don't buy their ...

Here's the other mind-blowing aspect of this: Gibson claims to have a patent on "a device that lets a user ?simulate participation in a concert by playing a musical instrument and wearing a head-mounted 3-D display that includes stereo speakers.?" Ummm, what version of GH has this? Wouldn't it make ...

Takes the truism "its all about the notes you're not playing" to the next level, then rapes it, repeatedly.
