That Dunlop formula 65 sounds pretty good to me.  I think I'll try it.

Good idea.  Thanks joey.  I've had wrist problems a long time and I think this will help.

They are going to put us all out of buisness ! LOL

If anyone thinks we are all alone in this vast universe, they are just kidding themselves !

Thanks guys for the feedback.  I really appreciate it.

The little gizmo your talking about is a pick punch.  I bought one about a year ago and could not be happier with it.  I have made about 500 picks with it with no problems.  You can punch picks out of just about any plastic, even old credit cards !  They sell them at www.pickpunch.com.  I bought mine on ebay for $20.00.  I love this item !!!

I had a 1977 Yamaha 650 motorcycle once and thought it was great.  I guess I should try one of their guitars.

I have small hands and can't quite reach some chords so I use a bar chord or substitute another chord that has a simular sound.  I also cut my first finger on a table saw a few years ago and have no feeling in the nerves in it.  Do any of you substitute some chords?

My mother was a guitar player all of her life.  When I was in second grade she bought my first guitar with one of these simular things on it.  They are OK if your a kid I guess, but I'll keep playing my Fender Stratocaster thank you.

I always carry a guitar pick in my wallet.  Never know when it will come in handy.

The Fender Stratacaster is my pick for best electric guitar.  I Love the 5-way switch, whammy bar the way it is slim, shape of the double cut away body and overall apperance.  Add it to a Fender Amp and you can't ask for more I think.

Hi, I served in the U.S. Air Force from June 1968 till June 1972.  I server 15 months in Tripoly, Lybia within those 4 years.  At the same time Momar Kadauffe overthrough the Lybian government in 1969, I was caught up right in the middle of it.  Twice they tried to overrun us with tanks but somehow we escaped with our lives.  Believe me when I tell you all we still live in the greatest country in the world and I love our country so much that I would be willing to do it all over again !  I was dischared  in June 1972 at the rank of sergeant and glad to be home again although I was never really thanked for my sevice untill recently.  Sometimes when I'm playing my guitar I play some of the sad songs thinking of those times.  I think of my guitar as my best buddy because it was with me over there.

MY first amp was some small cheap thing that I bought at a fle market.  I don't even remember what kind it was anymore it's been so long ago.  Anyway it finally broke down.  Than I was at a friends house and he had just purchased a Fender Twin Reverb 65' reissue and it sounded so great that I just had to have one.  I went to EBAY and started to search.  Finally I found one and started to bid on it.  I won and couldn"t beleave it !  I paid around $1000 for it, but let me tell you it was worth every penny.  85 amps, two twelve inch speakers and plug-ins for four guitars.  What a sound !  I bought a Fender Stratacaster guitar to go with it and am loving both !  I don't mean to brag, but I am glad I sacrificed and spent the money.  It sure was worth it.
