    Breaks are good but I would make sure you can play for a good long time so you'll have no problem doing gigs or whatever. I don't really have a set practice pattern; I just do it when I get the time.

    Yeah...my steering wheel has some pretty decent bounce to it. But certainly that's not the sort of thing we advise.

    Okay, we got one vote for "Pacific = crap". Nice. Anybody else have any thoughts or reasons why Pacific sucks? Or does anybody think it's good?

    Sigh...very true. I accidentally stole a paper clasp from a church in California back in 1998, I think, and I still feel bad.

    I guess I'll just have to do it the hard way. The honest way.
