You'll need to find a group of people for whom this won't matter. I started with friends who I knew wouldn't care, then when I felt I was good enough I posted an ad that explained exactly what kind...

From my observation, it's the other way 'round, actually. When Laura Shigihara worked with us she was in the office maybe four or five times, total. The rest of the time we communicated with her by...

Yeah, it happens to me all the time. There's no gradual improvement, just an immediate jump from "can't do this no matter how much I practice" to "can do this". Sometimes it happens overnight.

Dozens and dozens of threads from people whining that they can't be "original" with only twelve notes and this guy is so worried about not fitting the mold that he wants to buy a wig.

I've been pondering this topic a lot lately. What I don't get is why tab is bad but standard notation is not. After all, using either one keeps you from "using your ear" because you're learning to...

My experience with the Frontman (15R) was the exact opposite; the gain channel had horrible bass feedback and it wasn't good for anything but cleans. I use it as a drum monitor now.

I got the basic Steven Slate kit when it was on sale a while back, and now I swear by it.

And yes, I do all my own backing tracks. I play bass as well as guitar and just program the drums in SS.
