One of the greatest lines in movie history. From CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND. Richard Dreyfuss cracks a half-smile and says, "Who are you people?" Well, that's what I want to know here. Who are you people?

It seems whenever I bring up my Rickenbacker or my Stratocaster...I get disbelief that somebody here at this site actually plays them. I am kind of getting the picture that you folks here are a different breed. Please answer these few questions so I can confirm what I suspect about many members here.

1. You would rather listen to:
A) Eddie Van Halen on guitar
B) Chet Atkins on guitar

2. You
A) own a dirt pedal
B) do not own a dirt pedal

3. You
A) have or had long hair
B) keep it short

4) You prefer
A) a Floyd Rose type trem unit
B) a Bigsby trem unit

5) You can
A) tap or do pinch harmonics
B) Travis pick

6) You
A) own or want a Marshall amp
B) own or want a VOX amp

7) You love
A) power chords
B) arpeggio chords

I suspect the majority here will answer A to those questions.

My Teisco Del Rey had class, too...
Played in a band over 25-30 years off and on, I like Vibrolas, actually, own a Vox AC30 headphone amp plugged into my Peavey Renown, listen to Stephen Stills or Joe Walsh and EVERYBODY else on guitar (and keyboard, too), have hair, and what's a dirt pedal?

Introduction to You, one more participant on this board.

So here is a big thanks to all of you that make this site well worth visiting.

1. Depending upon my mood, I'll listen to either guitarist and I'll add some Mike Bloomfield and John Coltrane.

2. You own several dirt pedals: MXR Timmy, Fulltone FD2, Catlinbread DLS, and the Truetone VSXO dual od pedal.

3. Hair, you keep it short

4) You do not like any tail piece / bridge unit that has any unnecessary moving parts.


5) You can do both tap or do pinch harmonics and some half-assed Travis picking, however, you really despise most country music and enjoy Hard Rock, Blues, some Jazz and R and B.

6) You ideally would like a Plexi, however impractical that would be. You do have a 5 watt Ibanez w/ 12ax7 and a 6v6 w/ Ragin' Cajun speaker, Orange Crush CR-60 w/V30, and Mesa Boogie Express. Bought the Express because you liked the gain channels and over the years you've switched almost exclusively to the clean channel with an OD pedal. The clean channel on this amp really is that good.

7) You use both power chords and arpeggio chords and sometimes in the same song.

3. You
can't hardly see most of the time, and like it that way. The barbers shops being shut through lockdown has had no bearing on me; I ain't frequent them normally unless forced

1. You would rather listen to:
A) Eddie Van Halen on guitar
B) Chet Atkins on guitar
Answer: All of the above.

2. You
A) own a dirt pedal
B) do not own a dirt pedal
Answer: A, I have a big pedalboard that gets me a lot of versatility from anything from ambient music to rock’n’roll. Also, fuzz.

3. You
A) have or had long hair
B) keep it short
Answer: A, this is a loaded question as it tends to lead to just to judgement in what music you prefer to listen to. Me, while I am an angsty teen (I realize that, and will most likely grow out of what I listen to) mostly listen to Rap and Djent as of right now. But, I grew up in my guitar playing career listening to the likes of Gary Clark Jr (part of where my love of the SG comes from), Led Zeppelin, Free, etc.

4) You prefer
A) a Floyd Rose type trem unit
B) a Bigsby trem unit
Answer: B for Bigsby. They both have their uses though, and a good 2 point is just as good as a Floyd.

5) You can
A) tap or do pinch harmonics
B) Travis pick
Answer: all of the above

6) You
A) own or want a Marshall amp
B) own or want a VOX amp
Answer: A, only because I own two. I also have a Fender Twin and a Supro BluesKing for ya know, choice. Voxes have never really been a tone I’ve chased after, as I’ve never been bitten by the beatle bug (or really cared for the ones I’ve played, they sound very sterile to my ears).

7) You love
A) power chords
B) arpeggio chords
Answer: Both. Been playing a lot of jazz chords and mandolin-esque inversions lately.
