I just used to stand in front of the mirror with my axe and practice my "Rock faces". It wasn't long before the groupies started to form a line outside my parents basement. Seriously, Singing is a good way to develop your ear as well. Beware of online guitar tablature. It's a good way to get started...

I think Darius just played with the Posies at Wicker Part fest in Chicago last Friday. With all that is going on with Ken Stringfellow, Big Star, and a fall R.E.M tour, It seems the Posies record won't see the light of day for several months. If you see Darius ask him when he plans to open the theme...

The LW shows are all great, and there are some new songs in there as well.

Another way to get a phat sound, if you have the luxury of two amps, is to split your signal (using any stereo pedal) then add 20 ms delay ( one repeat) to one of the signals. Set the delay so that the output or effect level is at its highest and the original or input signal is at its quietest. In o...

Thanks for the kind words in the tour diary. However I'm far from "Big and scary". I could have easily chewed one of your shoes as you slept on my favorite couch, and would it kill ya to carry a milkybone or two?
