Well, I thought my pickin' would set 'em on fire ...

But nobody wanted to hire a guitar man

Now this hits a bum note: the MPA mafia has started directing its evil machinations at the hapless guitar tab sites. Can these people not see that they are stifling the creativity of our youth? It's the kids who sit at home copying their heroes who grow up to be tomorrow's performers. Well-known sites such as and have already fallen prey to the money-grabbing fun-suckers.

Somebody please explain to them that by reducing the number of people who can pursue an interest in music, they are ultimately doing themselves out of a job. The real problem with the music industry is too many middle-men are making too much money out of it.

FWIW, I recommend the WayBackMachine as a temporary solution.

But what is this about The Kids copying? Can't they (like me, and evidently you) write their own tunes? Can't they plug their own distortion pedals in?

They need to be *against* their heroes, don't they?

...wanders off to cause mayhem and feedback, as that is all he likes (and can do)...

That level of cynicism comes later. I didn't start fighting the system until I left school .. maybe I was a slow developer ;^)
