re: Are guitar lessons worth the money? - johnqpublic on 9/22/21 at 12:19 pm
[quote]All players of all skill levels can benefit from lessons, even if it's an exercise to get a skilled player out of his own ruts and into new territory. FYI, Randy Rhoads was taking classical lessons at the time of his death to grow and expand as a player. And part of the reason Mark Tremont...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Infamous or memorable deaths/murders/kills in BR history - johnqpublic on 8/25/21 at 12:15 pm
In addition to the ones listed, one of the most memorable ones for me was the murder of Fred Schmidt in 1978 at the Red Lobster (Florida and Airline). I was a kid in BTR when that happened and it made an impact on me. Probably because my family had been to that place, so it was the first murder that...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Help me spend some money - johnqpublic on 8/20/21 at 11:43 pm
While some Squiers might be upgraded to a nice guitar, a Bullet is the least likely to make it. If you have the price of a USA Strat (which seems to be about $1300), you can get a nice rig. If I were in your spot, I'd get a much better guitar and a somewhat better amp. You could get the USA Strat wh...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Briscoe says "knicked him [Hamlin] in the right rear quarter panel" The replay shows this to be completely untrue. He was nearly in the center of the bumper when Hamlin started to spin. Either Briscoe isn't remembering correctly or he is one of the all time great fabricators of reality. ...
