3. Wah Pedal Repair

Wah pedals seem like a pretty heavy duty item. Because of the back and forth action and having to stomp on it to click on and off, they get a lot of use. What can go wrong?

5. Isaac Asimov's Foundation
Music - Mon, 15 Sep 2014 01:40:51
This book is oddly mesmerizing. It's hard to put down, even though as Isaac himself says in the introduction, there really isn't any action. The reason this is a page turner is in the nature of the puzzles and how they get resolved and how the balance of power will shift.

9. A Tale of Two Cities
computers-and-electronics - Thu, 30 Dec 2010 20:04:01
I had never read a Charles Dickens novel before this one. I quickly got into the story because there were a lot of plot lines that were going on at once. I did feel that the ending became predictable, but that may be because so many other stories use elements of this book.

books-poetry-writing - Tue, 26 Feb 2013 03:57:22
There seems to be some controversy as to who invented the Octavia guitar effect and what the actual sound is.
