Re: OT Which Desert Island Stomp Box Pedal in each Category Wouldyou Choose
$50 an hour to go online and ask other people for there opinions?
Where do I sign up?
My point is anytime you go on any forum, especially music forums, and
ask for opinions, your responses are always so varied and so broad
they're almost meaningless.
Try going on the acoustic guitar forum and ask those brainiacs what
capo is the best and you'll get 57 different answers. Of course 3/4s
of those guys are struggling to get through Mustang Sally. So take
any answer you get with a grain of salt.
