comment How does one set up a guitar amplifier to produce a rock sound/feel?
I like this answer. A very similar approach is the hacker's frob, twiddle, and tweak.

comment Electric guitar vs classical guitar
As for price, the general rule-of-thumb for guitars is if it's less than $200 you should really wonder why it's less than $200.

comment Remote Performance Workflow
Slightly-less bleeding-edge, I remember reading that Faith No More wrote the songs on their later albums by starting with a keyboard+bass+drums jam (those three lived in the same city) then mailing the tapes to the guitarist then mailing the tapes to the vocalist. This type of "workflow" can be done now with email and ftp and stuff.

It was just the ♭ and B in the same sentence that jumped out at me. I actually had the edit-view open when you last edited. So it felt wrong to do it myself while you were actively editing.

You can get a flat-sign with ♭ (doesn't work in comments, conveniently).
