    Ok...sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, I'm not trying to be a troll or to start a flame war (though that could conceivably happen anyway, I will admit)...let's just get that out of the way from the start. I seriously want to know everybody's response to this. Here's the question...is...

    Just curious. What guitars have you played that you discovered were really disappointing, or even an outright rip-off?

    Can anyone suggest any really simple songs to try? I've been playing guitar for ages, but I've never really felt inclined to try to sing before, and I'm pretty self-concious about it. I've been screwing around with some old Cat Stevens, and some Dave Matthews. I'm really at a loss for what...

    Ok, We just finished jam night at the mo compound. Everybody went home and I was sitting around alone listening to some music. Of course I am a bit drunk and a little high:) anyway, I was wondering what songs put you guys (and gals) in a daze. I have a few tunes that just put me in another world...

    I realise that it's all down to opinion, but I thought it would be interesting to see who fellow Jemsiters think is the best guitarist ever. My vote is for Steve Vai... ( I think he will be a popular choice:)) What do YOU think? Rock on!

    On the "Are You Gigging" thread http://www.jemsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=60472 somebody mentioned butchering Sweet Home Alabama and somebody else mentioned that their band does it too - I figured pretty much every band does it, so why not play it proudly for the world to hear! Here's my...

    Since I play mainly heavy rock, I finding myself a bit limited to what songs I know for playing on the Acoustic Guitar. Therefore I'd like to kick start a list of acoustic songs that are easily identifiable for their guitar parts. Any genre is most welcome. I'll kick start off a few I know...

    In order to build up a repetoire of songs to learn that are famous for their guitar parts, I'd like to kick start off a list of essential MUST LEARN songs for the electric guitar. The songs you recommend must not be biased towards your favorite artists/songs, but should be songs easily...

    Watched the Departed the other day. WOW. I really think this had to be Jack Nicholsons best. I was really shocked at how great DiCaprio was. He really is a great actor. After seeing the Titanic, I kida wrote him off. Then he did Gangs of NY and I kinda liked his acting. But with The Departed...

    i have to admit i love vai and satriani as musicians, but as much as i love em', i hate their singing, slightly embarassing i think! Hope they will be none of it in the future. Sorry to any fans for this insult. Please share your views here

    When the album was first released (record format), there was a picture of a hotel on the album cover. In an upper window of the hotel there was a man peering out. Is this man Anton Levay? Comments?

    Has everyone seen this Dragonforce video? Serioues, I haven't ever heard of this guy. This is like modern Cacophony in my opinion. No power metal bashing please, just check the two guitarists out!

    Had platinum tickets to Satriani monday night in Tampa. Shook hands with the man himself!!!! This is info from his crew......There will be no Vai going out with G3 this fall. He has commitments to the Zappa thing he's doing so it will be Satch and some all new players. It is going to be strange...
