How to spot a counterfeit Gibson Les Paul. My Les Paul only has two screws. Whew.

One thing that has always bothered me, in a typical rock band, when the guitar lead happens then a rhythm guitar part drops out and there's a big hole in the sound. So just as the song is supposed to be getting more exciting, it becomes less exciting. The Who's Pete Townshend seemed to manage to get around that somehow. Mostly by not playing typical guitar leads. The song "Sparks" from their Live at Leeds album is a good example of lead/rhythm playing. I can't do it myself.
Via Lost in Schlock, weathering props with a rust effect. How to make drywall look like a rusted steel wall. I need a lot more rusted steel walls in my life.
