    What is your opinion on modeling (the guitar kind, not the bikini kind)?

      Fantastic choice. One of the prettiest, if not the prettiest, songs ever.

        I got a question for you Kage.

        When you were a teen, did you do anything such that your parents didn't get mad, just 'disappointed?'

          Modeling is a very cool technology that I expect to do better than solid-state, but for fifty years guitarists have been going back to vacuum tubes. The best hope for modeling, in my opinion, is if it goes the hybrid route. There is no substitute for real tubes. Is there any good substitute for real butter?

          It's still fun watching the technology evolve. Should be interesting to see how right or wrong I am ten or twenty years from now.

          My dad was more likely to get mad at me for things that would merely disappoint my mom. The biggest issue for them with me was my academic performance. I had always done very well in school until around fifth and sixth grade, when my grades started dropping. Suddenly, I wasn't in all the top-tier classes. My folks were disappointed/angry with me for not taking my studies seriously. The constant refrain was that I wasn't "buckling down" and "meeting my potential."

          In the sixth grade, it was suggested that I might have a learning disorder; this would explain the dropping grades. I was taken out of reading class every few days for a couple weeks, and met with a learning specialist. She asked me lots of questions, had me solve various riddles and problems, and played little games with me. What I didn't realize at the time was that I was being given a standardized IQ test. Fortunately, I scored very high on the test. Unfortunately, that didn't offer a reason for my plummeting grades. This only served to increase my parents' concern and anger/disappointment. I think I just didn't do well in the traditional academic setting. I thrive on different learning styles. That never mattered to my parents -- they just thought I was lazy and irresponsible. Those words -- "lazy and irresponsible" -- still stick with me today, and they hurt. Now I just get angry and disappointed with myself. I need to cut myself some slack.

          I might also try to squeeze in one last "Pull my finger."

            Bro, what if your kid pulled your finger and you died that instant?

            ok, what challenging guitar piece would you most like to play on any of the following instruments:

            kazoo
            bagpipes
            saw
            your own throat and cheeks
            melodica

              No, no. Do you take all of the strings off before you replace them, or to you change one at a time, taking one off and putting one on, one after the other until complete.

              Do you use all 6 strings?

              Complaining that there are hypocrites in church is like complaining that fat people use the gym. Where else would you have them be?

                I'd like to be able to play Francisco Tárrega's "Recuerdos de la Alhambra" on the musical saw. Who wouldn't?

                  Ah, I see what you mean. I replace them one at a time, usually in this order:
                  1. Low E
                  2. High E
                  3. B
                  4. A
                  5. G
                  6. D

                        These questions are just past the deadline, but I'll answer them anyway. I'll have to ask Jeremy to close the thread.

                        I had a PB&J about a week ago. In fact, just this Sunday I had a Fluffernutter (peanut butter and Fluff). I've you've never had a Fluffernutter, and you like peanut butter, you may be missing out on a great thing.

                        Unfortunately, my eight-year-old son has never had a PB&J (or a Fluffernutter) in his entire life. He's allergic to nuts. I think it's sad for a kid never to have experienced the simple delight of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

                        Hmmm…the hardest life lesson? Well, the toughest experience of my life was going through an incredibly painful divorce. You don't go through things like that without learning something about yourself, the world, or both.

                        I learned that, even when things seem at their darkest, everything can turn around. I met someone absolutely amazing, we're married now, we've bought a house together, and we just had a baby girl. What I really learned is that I'm capable of getting through tough times and making things good again. Those wonderful things didn't just happen to me; I made them happen. That's a huge lesson I had to get on my own, because a bad situation was thrown upon me.
