Less than a year you posted that and the site has fuckin' 404's.

blitz906 2009-09-13 09:24

Maybe it's a bot?

Modest Mouse would be a good place to start.

Here's some advice that any new instrumentalist should take, and disturbingly, few do:

Learn how to read music.

Dyldo 2011-05-27 09:42

I think first one should learn how to spell the instrument they are trying to learn.
