Chase a copy of this book (Making Music) down, if you haven't already. It's a little hard to Google "george martin book" without getting all the Games and/or Thrones stuff. Not all by George, but kind of a collection of topics from his friends/coworkers... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0688014666...

Another answer to the annual "what to do with $100 Xmas gift" I've posted a couple of times before. For 2015, it's an Ebow!

How about a link to tapeop.com ?

Still haven't made a move yet. It sounds like 8" woofers are overkill for a small bedroom setup (11' x 13' or so)? Maybe I'll look harder at the 5" options.

Monitors (speakers) near monitors (video)

Did we used to have to buy (audio) monitors that were somehow "shielded" so the magnetic fields wouldn't distort the (video CRT) monitors near them?

My avatar is a Rondo electric 12, I guess I should leave it at my friend's since I got the Ric. The octaves make even my basic riffs sound like songs.

monitor recommendations - bedroom studio?

I've had Event 20/20's (passive, 8" driver) for several years (is it 15 already?), lately the left one has been sounding flaky, it's probably time to replace. I guess I'd rather stay with something this size, for the bass response (unless modern speakers with 5" have the same or better specs). It al...

Got a loaded Squire Strat neck off of Ebay, and bolted onto this leftover body:
Tuned/strung Nashville tuning - .026w .018 .015 .009 .013 .011 - like the octave strings on a 12 string.
