    Anyone in NYC ?

    I'm leaving from NYC Pier for a cruise on Sunday. The directions I have are pretty straight forward to get there from RI, pretty much 95 South to H Hudson Pkwy, if I hit the G.W. bridge, I went to far right? Is there any construction and/or detours in the area? Thanks!

    Learning Solo's

    Is it "normal" to take a week or longer to learn a solo? I'm not even talking up to speed either, just knowing all the notes and playing it somewhat decent?

    Let's talk about Cleaning

    The pics. of the polished Faded in the Sunburst lounge got me thinking.....how often do you guys polish your LP's? What do you use? Do you go all out and remove knobs, strings, etc. to get at every nook & cranny or just do a general area type thing? I use the Gibson pump polish and a...

    Have an LP Studio on the way and I want to install the Zakk Wylde EMG set (81/85). They have quick connect fasteners so there should be no soldering involved. Anyone installed these? Anything to look out for? Are the instructions really good? Thanks!
