    I looked on Ebay first, yeah, pricey. Our bass player has a copy of
    Acid, in addition to Vegas, and he says Acid will do the "one track at
    a time time" thing too, in a basic way. Acid wont let you record more
    than one track live, at a time, i dont think, but one track at a time
    is all I need. Anyway, if i like it, I'll probly just buy a version of
    Acid.

    thanks anyway.. your info was very helpful and hopefully will steer me
    in a direction that i wanted to go.

    Dude... Read it again... I called me "dumb about shit" too... And you are at
    times... Just like me... As far as being called Polfus, don't act like him

    bro.

    That's how *I* gauge my progress with music in general. I feel it makes me a
    better "musician", and at the same time a better guitarist.

    > I think learning other people's songs is a SUPERB way to learn.


    > Its just not the only way for ME.


    Just happens to also be a good way to find others to play with. Even tho you
    might do an original thing, most guys that get together to jam and see if
    there's any chemistry and start with a blues jam (or SOMEthing), then move
    onto a few covers just to see if there's any chemistry with the KNOWN
    factors. It's the typical way it's done. But if you don't have the desire to
    play with others it doesn't matter. But your choices of who can play with
    become even more limited if all the guys can't play 4 or 5 tunes together.
    There's always going to be the guy that holds the thing back. Playing
    together with others is integral to playing better.

    Again, it's that options thing Jason... But like I said.... If you don't
    WANT to play with others it doesn't matter. Just go at your own pace and end
    up wherever you end up. But if you say, "I'd like to play but can't find the
    dudes to even jam", then that could be one reason why, is alls i'm sayin'
    indeed bro!

    Carry on... Hope you don't think I'm arguing. It's not my intent.

    Damn...that is rather soothing and cool. Nice fingerpicking too.

    Nice acoustic tone. Nice vocals.

    Good job.
