    bro ive been drawing naked chicks for almost 2 years now lol. anyway the class was cool. i got to co teach which was fun. first we listened to older musical virtouosos like paganini and jazz pianist benny green. then we got into the modern guitar virtouoso ala edward, i got to explain about the variac,pinch harmonics,two handed tapping and whammy effects. actually people were intrested to hear it. noone freaked out over it but they were intrested and gave it a chance(a perk of college classes i think). the teacher borrowed vh1 and put it on the schools computer mp3files and the class required listening list.btw the book we used as the study aid is called "Running with Devil-Power,Gender,and Madness in Heavy Metal Music" the Edward chapter is called "Eruptions".

    That's pretty damn cool and it got me to wondering if whether somewhere in some logic or psych class, they might be studying Van Halen too. Those boys are the Rubik's Cube of rock-n-roll! [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]
    Could this be magic?
