Rhythm is both a song's manacle. And its demonic charge.
My copy of Troy Stetina's Metal Rhythm Guitar Volume 1 arrived today - looking forward to working through that over the next few weeks to get my basic chops down.
Also intriguing news (via the excellent Guitar Noize) that Music Man amps may be revived - maybe a Joe Strummer signature model would be good?
What else... not a lot. I'm on the road for the next couple of days, so will probably take my netbook with me to get some stuff done on the train, if I can.
