    Uhh I'd rather not post it publicly because I don't want to encourage people going over there to pick fights. I can PM you the link if you'd like.

    yes, I know it's animeforum.com but really. Let's ignore that for a second and focus more on the part where she asked for criticism and responded like a little bitch when she got it without sugar on top.

    I went to the forum and yes, you were acting like a dick. Her rage (though somewhat exagerated) is totally justifiable seeing as you insulted her on several occasions.

    Seriously, there is an air of superiority when you posted on that board... it even comes through when you're talking about her here: "yes, I know it's animeforum.com but really. Let's ignore that for a second". Why would this be an obstacle to drawing well or accepting criticism? It's like you already build a stereotype in your mind that makes it OK for you to talk down to them.

    I think you were out of line and your criticism was somewhat high-and-mighty.

    If you're looking to do some deep sea fishing then just look around for charter operators. If it's something you're going to want to do frequently, then you're going to be looking at a substantial amount for your gear and...well... a boat.

    ...the poser package.

    So let me get this straight, for the extra $2000 you are buying the image that you would be someone that would spend his time and effort ricing out their hatchback, but you're too lazy to be bothered?

    Great googly moogly guys! Take a look at this!

    http://www.candyrat.com/Tabs.aspx


    Specifically this:
    Antoine Dufour : Transcriptions Set 5

    This download comes with three songs in MP3 format and matching (Standard Notation & Guitar Tab Format) transcriptions in Adobe PDF and Guitar-Pro formats for the following songs:

    Song for Stephen

    30 Minutes in London

    Reality

    This is Song for Stephen:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgsB_xA2G0I&feature=related



    But wait! It gets better!
    Andy McKee : Guitar Tabs & Standard Notation : Set 2

    This download comes with four songs in MP3 format and matching (Guitar Tab & Standard Notation Format) transcriptions in Adobe PDF format for the following songs:

    Africa

    Art of Motion

    7-14

    All Laid Back and Stuff

    This is Art of Motion:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRAiUzrmkMk&feature=related


    It took forever, but Candyrat Records finally started selling tabs from some of their artists, and both of my favorites are up there! It's a little pricey ($20 for McKee, $15 for Dufour), but well worth it.

    So yeah, i'm stoked.

    It's actually part of an advertisement campaign for DHL so I'm guessing that they paid him.

    Something you've got to realize is that guys like Andy McKee and Antoine Dufour not only have been playing for many years, but also have extensive training in music theory. I've been playing for almost a year, and i'm still struggling with stuff like bar chords (which is ironic, because i'm able to play Classical Gas by Mason Williams decently). It all comes down to practice really; just don't worry about what the other guy is doing and focus on you, and you should be fine.
    Godfather - those videos are amaaaaazing! Man, I wish I could play like that. Gorgeous songs, too. Very nice! :D

    Glad you liked it.


    It seems i'm having a bit of a decision crisis now. I found out that mr. McKee also has released the tabs for Rylynn, arguably one of his strongest pieces. It was written for a girl with the same name to left this earth too soon, and you can hear it reflected through the piece:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsD6uEZsIsU&feature=related


    The problem? It's more difficult than Drifting:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ddn4MGaS3N4&feature=related

    Drifting is considered to be McKee's Magnum Opus, although I prefer the title be awarded to Rylynn.

    If I pick up Rylynn, it's going to be years until i'm able to play that piece (especially with my school situation). Art of Motion might be the smarter choice.

    Well, I spilled water on my 80 GB iPod a while ago.

    Water damage isn't covered by any warranty, and I can't seem to pry the damned thing open. Not that I want to risk messing up the delicate wiring.

    It it doesn't dry up and clear up, I guess I'll try again.

    And just this morning I ordered a fancy pair of headphones. At least I wasn't expecting to use them with my iPod in the first place.

    Ummm... deleting partitions is really bad and hard to recover from as far as I know. You can try using the disk management tools but generally I think you'll need to get some third party software to help you out.

    Acronis Disk Director is a tool that I've used in the past to expand and shrink partitions. Take a look at it. It may be able to help your situation. It costs about $50.
