    Wow, ain't many places more different than Clarendon Hills than Down Under. We were in Freemantle a few years ago visiting our son. Surprised the blues made it that far.

    I just got an email from Stringjoy, they now have 11's for electrics that they are marketing as bendable as 10s!

    But I just spent the last 10 weeks in BGU doing electric and am now so glad I put it down and picked up my acoustic again. Surprised how rusty I got, electric is so much easier, more forgiving with mistakes (I just bend or slide to the correct fret) whereas with acoustic a mistake is immediately apparent. Missed my Taylor...now going through all the acoustic courses.
