Re: Buzz Fightin' - with REAL loop content!

I'm glad we've almost all got this out of our system. And I do believe that
there are those of us who care about tuning and those who don't. I am in
between myself. But i do admit to being incredibly tired of 12 tones, and 
in the process of augmenting my guitar with a metal fingerboard. Hopefully
those of you who search for more will take the leap yourselves.
Always look at things from a different point of view just when you think 
know it all.

PS. Any of you DJ's wanna do a long distance improvisation with some weird
guitar player...namely me.
