The PDF won't load for me..... is it just my crappy internet?

EDIT: Got it via the mirror.
I'm looking for feedback on my short story please! Just leave a comment on my profile. If I get an overly positive response I'll continue it in the next issue.

Great issue.

Zach (Due07) stole the show again with his article. Kid's too smart for his own good.

Really didn't find Paco the Stomach funny in any way, shape or form. There was no punch line.

The reviews were also really done, and I love Theogonia's lesson again. Fun shit right there.

Good job, guys.

i'm thinking i might do a full length lesson next time based off of that concept, showing other shapes for arpeggios with that same kind of string skipped tapping type of technique.

I implore you to do so. Especially with the string skipping because that's always a fun thing to practice and improve on.

I found the other shapes a bit more easy to understand when I started sweeping, so maybe even a sweeping lesson would be good to get your point across.

Damn, SlackerBabbath is a beast of an artist. Another good issue,
I'm just like the Jonas Brothers,

I'm no longer relevant and write mediocre music.

The comic made me laugh, and I don't know why.

Good job, it was nice, keeps getting better and better it seems.

Great job everyone.

I'm not sure what the hell was running through my mind when I made that comic. Sleep deprivation is a funny, funny thing.
