The other sections of this site have are either directly related to my business or are part of my semi-romantic / utopian / democratic vision of making accurate information on playing guitar available for free to guitarists worldwide. This section has a much baser motivation: REVENGE. As a kid starting out on guitar, I was neither the best player nor the sharpest knife in the drawer in general. I trusted older, better players, who I looked up to, to help me out and offer guidance. In most cases this worked well, but when money is involved things change.
For every honest business in the music, music education, and musical instruments sale and repair industries, I've found there's at least one dishonest one. I want honest businesses to succeed, and the frauds who will lie and say anything to make a nickle off your dreams and desire for self expression, to fail. I've never minded when someone tells me they honestly don't know, in fact I appreciate that. I always play "country dumb" to see if they are rip off artists or not. But before I knew the truth, I got ripped off many times. So to all the thieves out there, here's a little payback.
