    I live in the inner city so I dont need a car.

    Here is a report on petrol prices in my area over the last 3 weeks. Unleaded is hovering above $1.60 a litre ($7.20 a gallon).


    Milk - are we talking the price I pay or what the farmer makes?

    I have noticed that milk is wildy varible from shop to shop. I have seen it as high as $5 per litre (that milk was noting special, maybe added calcium). I tend to get it in Aldi (German discount store) for $2 per 2 litres. That is on a par with Irish prices.

    Here is the link for Chevvies


    In short, Australia is expensive!!

    New books cost $30 on average. Classic Vibe strats about $800. Beer in pubs about $9. Steak and chips about $20. Dont start me on clothes...

    I buy most stuff online, save 50-60%.

    Hope that helps WV,

    Thanks for the message, my friend. Not trolling at all, just stating my opinion.

    Take care!

    Thank you for the well wishes! My surgery is March 14. The Dr will be removing two discs and replacing them with plastic/titanium prostheses which screw into my vertebrae. The procedure will actually go through my abdomen because it's easier to access the discs from that angle. I'm terrified to be honest, but without the surgery, I can't do all the things that make my life fun, like playing gigs and lugging around my amp. :-)

    Good morning, wvgman!! Thanks for dropping a note. Things are going OK. I ruptured two discs in my back in June and have to have surgery mid March, so I'm not looking forward to that. I have almost complete custody of my teenage daughter now, so I had to quit my band and seriously curtail my guitar aspirations. Things are settling a bit (except for my back), so I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. I was not sure how to reply directly to the message you sent, so I figured I'd post a new one here.

    How is everything with you, my friend? I hope you had a wonderful holiday season!!

    I assume I post my replies here - hopefully you'll see it... I only saw your message a moment ago so apologies for the delay in replying.
    Thank you for the clarification. It is certainly something I'm considering doing seeing as I've got a decent way through already. I just need to think about what (if anything) I can add to it to make it interesting. I suppose one benefit of writing a blog is that it should certainly keep me honest
    All the best

All You Need to Play Guitar.

by wvgman on 05-21-2015 at 12:54 PM

I have listed the only four things I think a person needs in order to play guitar. Actually, it is a highly simplified short list, but each entry covers a multitude of elements that fall within its category. I am not addressing physical capabilities because I have seen people play with their feet due to having no arms. I am not addressing social skills because guitarists come in every flavor imaginable when we speak of personalities. I am addressing only the four most essential things

What kind of guitar player are you?

by wvgman on 03-29-2015 at 01:22 PM
They say, "It takes all kinds." What does that mean?
I think we all know more than one kind of guitar player. We have met them at band practices, music stores, jam sessions, maybe even auditions. The guitar, perhaps due to its popularity, seems to lend itself to producing a greater variety of players than perhaps any other instrument. Of course, I am more familiar with the guitar and its acolytes and this entire monologue is based purely upon my own experiences and speculations,
