    I've always wanted to know how someone gets started with trading? If it were baseball cards, I'd go buy a pack and swap my McGwire for your Sosa. But with boots, you can't buy them, to then go on and trade them. Could someone fill me in? Thanks!!!

    Sure you can, you tape them or duplicate them with a cd burner. Other methods are 2:1 deals where you send two tapes/cdrs to a trader - they keep one and send you back something on the other.

    I have 2 or 3 spare copies of a cdr I burnt with 22 unreleased Roth originals (which I called Van Halen Zero on another thread). If you email me I'll send you a copy.

    Jonathan, are these 22 songs the ones that are on That's All Folks? The Warner Brothers demo. How many boots do you have? Just wondering.

    14 are from Blueprint which is essentially the same as TAF as far as I know. I just used the ones which were different tracks from the official albums- though it includes Voodoo Queen (=Mean Street w/diff lyrics), Last Night(=Hang 'em High) and Bring on the Girls(=Beautiful Girls).

    Other than that it has...umm.....Angel Eyes, Down in Flames, Bullethead, Eyes of Nite, Honolulu Baby, Show No Mercy, Take it Back and Let Me Swim in Your Ocean. Some of those aren't complete and may be covers?

    I have about 25 VH boots plus loads of Purple, Sabbath, Rainbow, Stones and a few others.

    Jonathan, I've never heard either Honolulu Baby or Bullithead. Are they good songs? I'd love to get them, but you've got everything I have.

    Yo Glenn, those are two killer songs. Honolulu baby is one of my favorites. That song just reaks of summer. Out.

    Hey Timmy - I'll tell ya how I got started - I got my 1st boot in march, I now have over 20 boots (many of them double cds)

    -go to www.vhtrade.com
    -search the list of traders for someone nearby, and email them, tell them your a newbie, offer them 2 blanks for every 1 recorded cds (1 as replacement, 1 as 'payment')
    -Once you get someone agreeable, do a trade.. Use www.vhboots.com to find what you want

    That will get you started, once your on your way, you'll probably need a cd burner, and some basic HTML skills to get a web page up, publisize the page as much as you can (here and on vhtrade are good starts.. If you build it, they will come

    A little zen... Headed your way...

    And if you need server space for your trading list look into VHvault.com.

    I can also recommend many good traders that I have dealt with.

    Many traders "start out" differently. I started with about 7-8 originals in 1995. They got to be too expensive for my budget back then. I just started trading back in Sept./Oct. of 1999. and Look at me now.

    Somebody--please stop me.
