    I wish I could watch YouTube @ work, which is where I am. No streaming video allowed.

    'More Than A Feeling' is still one of my faves, as well as 'Party' & 'Cantcha Say/Still In Love'.

    I listen to mostly trance these days, but I still love the classic rock.

    I'm in the market for a decent electric guitar.

    Any suggestions?

    Ovation and Yamaha are on my radar.

    Looking for a price range of say $500 or so, possibly more if it's really worth it.


    As an amateur picker...have you looked at Schecter? They make some really nice electrics in the $500 range. Also, I have an Ibanez that I got for under $300 that plays really nice. It's not in the same league as my Paul Reed Smith, but for the money it's been pretty good.

    ETA: What kind of music do you play?

    Little bit of everything.

    I've been looking at the RGX a2, which I believe is sometimes compared to Ibanez.

    Yeah, they are very similar, construction-wise anyway. I've never played a RGX though. All the Ibanez guitars have a well-earned reputation as being smooth and fast, something to consider. Don't know if the Yamahas are as well. Seriosly though, check out the Schecter guitars. If I were going to spend say $500-600ish on a new electric, that would likely be my first choice. Also, I don't know what your opinion of Fender is, but the Mexcian-made Strats are a good value for the money. I'd go with the Fat Strat, with a humbucker at the bridge though.

    If you are looking for a nice, crisp guitar sound....i think its tough to beat a Fender Telecaster.

    Not as hard sounding as a strat and not as much punch, but for crystal clear sound its fantastic. Got mine a couple years ago, and I'm more than happy with it.

    I've been considering a Tele. They can sound a bit "twangy", and they're not as versatile as a Strat, but they definitely have a unique sound. Of course I don't *need* another guitar, as my wife reminds me that I already have five of them. Of course, she just doesn't get it.

    Actually, I think my next guitar is going to be one of those do-it-yourself kits, as I'm wanting to experiment with painting and finishing it myself.

    The show Scrubs turns up some pretty good music every now and then, especially the 2000-2004 episodes. They've had Toad the Wet Sprocket on there a few times, good mellow stuff:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnPvWAeprmI -- fly from heaven

    Me, too. Not sure what to make of some of the stuff on the new album ("Highly Suspicious"? Forreal?), but there's some good tunes there.

    Oz-

    Have you checked out the soundtrack to Garden State? Apparently, Zach Braff has a hand in the music selections for Scrubs and the Garden State soundtrack compilation won him a Grammy. I like the Shins songs, Nick Drake, and Coldplay's "Don't Panic".

    If one enjoys good guitar noises, Wilco is doing that very well. Impossible Germany is a slightly jazzy, mid-tempo rocker that morphs into an Allman Brothers three guitar orgasm. Check the Nels Cline solo at 2:45. Oof. Here's California Stars. Pretty straightforward folk-type song (with lyrics by Woody Guthrie).

    They are one of the current Great American Bands, and that's not hyperbole. (Though, sadly, they are Cubs fans.)

    It's almost a dead-ringer, from the vox to the lyrics:

    This one's very easy to listen to, and reminds me of the Dead:

    On a related note, did you know that YouTube has partnered with the music industry and is removing the audio on all videos with unauthorized use of copyrighted songs?

    They have millions of videos to scan, so it's going to take a while. But all those Microsoft MovieMaker and Powerpoint, etc. videos posted using copyrighted music will now have the audio disabled.

    The only authorized music on YouTube will be what the bands and movie companies post themselves.

    One of the best albums I have found in a long time.....Very Unique to me in many aspects.

    Kings of Leon - Use Somebody from the album Only By The Night.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCZfJ...e=channel_page

    The entire album is great. The first time I listened to it (this is their 4th album I came to learn) my first impression was similiar to that which I had when I first listened to Pearl Jam Ten. I later read on Wikipedia that Eddie Vedder is a big fan and the Kings actually opened for Pearl Jam on a tour at some point.

    Wait! Heres another, the first track on the CD. Called "Closer"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOg1YfapEd4&NR=1

    Enjoy!
    I like the new album, too. I haven't spoken with enough people who know them to test my theory about Kings of Leon: you either love Caleb Followill's voice or you hate it. I also like Manhattan on the new album. It's a family affair: three brothers and a cousin in the band.

    Here's "The Bucket" (good place to start, very accessible rock song) and "Day Old Blues", (which I suspect is a good test of my theory) from their second album, Aha Shake Heartbreak. And here's our centerfield phenom's theme song (same album).

    Earth Wind and Fire-"Reasons"

    Bee Gees-"More Than A Woman"

    Stevie Wonder-"As"

    Barry White-"You're The First, The Last, My Everything"

    Steely Dan-"Reelin' In The Years" (the video should not be missed)
