alcoholism (Gordon Lightfoot's Early Morning Rain).   

- Zurf

Isn't everything Gordon Lightfoot does depressing? IMO The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald" is most depressing!!! I don't dislike his music but not really a top down 1st day of summer kind of performer....

look at AXL strats and Rondo.  dont know what you feel like spending.   W/ a good set up and fret file (which every guitar needs no matter what) the AXLs are pretty nice for teh low cost.



+1 on Rondo....I have an SX SST strat copy. Better than most Mexi Fenders I've played

Thanks for your comments folks. These banjos are not that easy to find second hand but I will keep looking. One will turn up some day.

All the best

rondomusic.com has them now and again. check them out. Chinese made but generally pretty good with an excellent returnpolicy.

I tried Cakewalk; it was way too complicated for me, the home studio hack. There's lots of other options out there.

As far as Adobe goes....same deal.

The level of customer service you received is unacceptable. And you're doing the right thing by spreading the word about how much they suck and giving them no more business.
If I ever get tempted to buy Cakewalk (I use Mixcraft and I like it alot so not likely) I will remember your words and opt not to.

Their loss. I hope your post propogates to thousands in lost sales.
