Rocks! .... in 3s! I tend to use 3s for folksie/balladie things (one coming soon I suspect, the way things are panning out here) ... but I've never really tried to rock in 3s... this proves it can be done!! :) As ever, mighty cool guitars.

Prior to the switch to the white UI I was having an issue where all of my uploads were marked as private and I couldn’t change them. I created a second account and moved on. Then after the white UI switch I found a couple of tracks had vanished so I moved everything back to this account and deleted v2.
