Spent 7 hours travelling and my whole music class at college couldnt feel anything but disapointed with what was going on today.

I mean come on there was barely any free stuff and fender refused to sell me a guitar, and i wont say anything about the swarm around Mr Dave Mustaine.

We just felt it was a tad disapointing from previous years

Your Veiws?

I went last year and it was epic but my friend and I decided to give it a miss this year, glad we did because:
A) Duff Mckagan wasn't coming.
B) Much wouldn't have changed since last year.

Maybe next year will be better.

i dont know why they wouldnt sell it

gibson had a big stand whilst fender had a small tent with some bloke demoing a couple of guitars when i asked if they were selling anything today the man just replied nope nad walked off

made fender look very cheap in my oppinion


i went to the guitar show in london which isnt supposed to be as good much better in my oppinion

came home with 400 picks

very happy with that

yet today i got 3

well

im feeling i missed out on that one

Yeah I thought it was pretty disappointing.

I havem't been any other years but from what I've seen/heard, this year was rubbish compared to others. I just spent half my time playing on the Gibsons with the Lin6 POD and staring at the Schecters, everywhere else was either packed or rubbish.

We spent 30 minutes queing for Dave Mustaine and gave up because people kept pushing in infront of us!!!

And do I have to mention that there was NO MOSHING aloud at the live stage....highly dissapointing.

My only highlight was seeing some guitars I wouldn't usually see at my local music shop...

Dissapointing this year...

I twas shit this year.

****ing idiots on the Daddario booth, i bought 10 sets, they picekd 10 sets outta 3 boxes, rather than giving me a box of 10.

Behringer sent me to Complete sound or w/e to get a "show deal" on a bugera 333xl, tehy werent doing any deals, nor did they have any with them.

Shit this year, fenders booth in 06 was amazing, seriously!
I also prefered Rosettis old booth, cos it wasnt cramped as ****ing hell.

Also, if the c*nt who was playing the bugera half stack OBNOXIOUSLY loud posts on this forum, go die.

You were playing the same 'tallica riffs for half an hour, 5x louder than me and the dude on the 6262 combo.

You ingorant prick.

Did anyone see that bloke playing stupid loud near the total guitar stand, he was trying to sell pedals that sounded shite so he resorted to turning it up so loud.
#24
It was also "LAWLZ I CAN TAP I ARE COOL" day.

On the bright side, the number of hot scene chicks was like 3:1... :P

I'm confused, you only stated half of that ratio.

why didnt you go meet Dave Mustaine? ive always wanted to meet him
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

i went on the saturday, and overall i thought it was awesome. I missed out on going last year, and on going to the one in london.

I got to try out a multiscale 8 string guitar at the Diezel stand
Joe Bonamassa was really good in the evening, despite the average age being about 50
I saw the Mexicolas do an acoustic set at the Gibson stand, which was pretty good
I was a bit dissapointed with Fender's effort there though, I was looking forward to hopefully trying out a 65 Twin Reverb reissue, but all they had was that crappy tent

Overall, a really awesome day for me. Hopefully I can go to the one in London next summer if it is on

You bastard, when I was there on the friday, the blackmachine/diezel stand was empty

Hopefully get to try them out at the LGS next year
#29
It wasn't that bad, the Mexicolas were playing a acoustic set like right at the back of the place which was cool, other than that it seemed a rather pointless trip. lol

I went with my college. I bought a mini amp from the Marshall stall and I got Dave to sign my Rust in Peace copy. Could have been better though.
