Actually, coming from sting himself, the song IS about stalking.
I think I saw it on VH1 some time ago.

Hobbies. I do all kinds of stuff outside of guitar. I mess around with random computer junk. I play videogames (I'm actually making on right now). TV. I religiously watch history, discovery, National Geographic, and Science Channels. Sometimes the travel channel, AMC Movie channel, or the food netwo...

Hmm. This sounds like fun. I'll go ahead and say first off that a lot of the stuff I play along with, and listen to for ideas and the likes comes from none other than classic videogames. Unorthadox as it may be, maybe I'll spark someone elses interests. A lot of it translates really well to the guit...

I've heard that putting super glue on your fingertips and letting it dry before you play is like having instant calouses. I couldn't say for sure. I've never tried it. But If this is right, and you don't have calloused tips, then after the super glue is gone, your fingers will be normal fingers, and...

Old? Maybe a little, but this BF tuning system doesn't seem to matter much to me really. Fret any string, any fret. Pluck it, strike it, do whatever you wish. Now fret the string a little harder and hear it go sharp. Maybe he was just putting 3 cents too much pressure? hehe That's a good reason I do...

I've always been a fan of CCR.
I guess I can thank my parents for listening to them a lot when I was a kid.
You're lucky to see Fogerty.

I thought this was a nice find. It shows that mister vai himself can't play perfectly perfect all the time.
Quite a few mistakes, but it only shows that he's human, just like the rest of us.

This may help you get the strings the way you want them.

This is part 2 to the video, but part 1 is easy to find.

My favorite colours are vintage white, and mint green. Both with aged hardware, like pickups, knobs and pickguards.

So, my amp tone is horrible. Really worn out peavey rage amp with no pedals. I think I'm just gonna record with my acoustic guitar over the blues. I'm sure it won't hurt your ears too much. *chuckle* Just pretend that what you're hearing is a fuzzy creamy tone, and not an acoustic guitar. HAHA! I'm ...
