I finally got a chance to listen - all the instruments sound great, great playing all around!

I think your approach to learning is a very workable one, the closest I get to it is when recor ...

Thank you, Paul - really good to put this in context!

I feel the same about Reece - he was my teacher, mentor, and friend, so I’m definitely prejudiced, but I’ve been playing jazz guitar a looo ...

Thank you guys!

I was pretty sure of that but it’s great to have it confirmed by someone who knows.

I did a search and couldn’t find the answer to this, although I think I know..

According to the manual you can use it as an input from a guitar processor (pod or similar) to be able to use guitar and steel at the same time. I would ask Dave Beatty to be sure, but it’s not desi ...

There’s a lot here, but some of the main things are:
