Oh, excuse me, I was working under the assumption that the airplane was invented by Steve Jobs and that weather was just a reaction to global warming.

The guitar has case.

Sounds like the soundtrack for a JRPG videogame, I don't mean that in a bad way.

Pretend you're dancing a waltz. 1-2-3, 1-2-3. Waltz of the Flowers, by Tchaikosvky, for example. There you have a 3/4 rhythm.

For a pop example: Baby's in Black, from The Beatles.

Great idea and the bass sounds alright, the guitar doesn't though. I would do it clean, both in tone and in performance. Find a nice, full clean tone and play the melody without extra fills (whammy,...

The song is in G, as far as I can remember. The chords played under the solo at least are all power chords in the key of G (and D too for that matter).

She got tired of your 28 guitars and you told her you would sell 3? Awesome.

I would honestly sell all you've pre-selected, except the telecaster, the les paul and the PRS.
