Except for the fact that I'm...

b) at the time he told me this, I'd been playing for a year or so.


I could see telling a lefty to try a right handed guitar if they specifically say that it's their first guitar. But that wasn't the case.

Heres a crazy lefty story...

Theres a local guy here that is a lefty and plays righty guitars. Now thats not the odd part The odd part is he strings it like a right handed guitar and just flips the guitar. And he is quite good even doing covers. Tripped me out.

you cant use a one channel amp. they're so stupid. how can you get a clean and a dirty sound out of them? name me one great guitarist who only used single channel amps.


i proceeded to list off : Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix, Zakk Wylde, Randy Rhoads, Jimmy Page, Pete Townshend, Angus Young, etc.

i could see where he was coming from, but i found this little trick: on your guitar, there are these weird knobs. one of them is labeled "Volume". you guys should give it a try. it's like the volume on your amp, but you don't have to go back there to turn it down. weird, eh?

Actually, the guy is kinda right. You probably just haven't played any GOOD bolt neck guitars.

there's no guitar center in NZ but the bad shop is called Rockshop.

I was looking around at their Mesa's.
I plugged into a triple rec and asked it i could crank it.

the guy said 'play this man doesn't need to be cranked to sound good but it sounds ****ing great anyway'

he pointed at a line 6 spider III head.

"Oh, cool. Have you got any of the new Hardwire pedals in yet?"

"The hard-what?"

the employees i talk to are usually smart and fun to talk to about gear and stuff, but theres been countless times that ive heard employees talking to fat kids' moms and telling them to get the spider III. i feel sorry for them cause they sound like they think the guy knows what hes talking about.
