    I got no problem with #14.

    That's as far as I read so far.

    I stopped reading to go put it into practice.

    Be back in 10 minutes,

    Or maybe even longer.

    Jeeze, against my better judgement I clicked that link and got tons of pop ups. And now I have to spend the next 15 minutes cleaning cookies off my browser :rolleyes:

    It's uncanny how every web page that has a list of the "best" or "what you should know" is just clickbait to install cookies on your browser.

    I'll shut up now :p

    Eric

    ps. here are the cookies that page put on my browser (I know that facebook, google and twitter track us everywhere but the surprising one is alexmetrics.com I don't have an alexa and it is tracking me anyway. yikes)

    I'm with Jalepeno on this... not just cookies but ad content that is so thick that it's constantly bouncing me around, not letting me scroll, taking me a third or more back in the article repeatedly, took forever to get through it all, and then there's all the garbage it's trying to install for "my" benefit.

    Have to try out that Indian Pentatonic (#10) and see if I can find the tab for The Devil Went Down to Georgia (#53).

    The most important topic for a "guitarist" was not covered! :cool::eek: What are the best drugs? Where do you obtain them? How much do you pay? When should they be taken? What about women? What about men, if you are so inclined, or is that declined? :confused:

    Like the man said, "Opinions are like a** holes. Everyone has one." In this case, some people have more than one! o_O

    I must be a whole let better than I thought. I can do #14 for way longer than 10 minutes.

    Think I'd have to agree... that's wasted time, I'll never get back.
