I found a YouTube video of ZZ Top with guests Slash and John Mayer. I admit I am biased toward Mayer but I think the video says it all. Mayer always seems to get overlooked in guitar circles while Slash is always praised. I know it’s not a competition and they are both good in their own right but damn, Slash was way out of his element here. I think Mayer did a much better job. What do you think?

Scott’s Ultimate Guitar Buyer’s Guide

I’ve read a ton of “guides” and they all seemed to be extremely complicated or elaborate. My Ultimate Buyer’s Guide is designed for simplicity based on a five step algorithm with an additional set of questions to predict the next logical decision. It doesn’t matter if you are looking to buy your first guitar or your 50th the process is the same and should be as easy as asking yourself a few simple questions. I’ll outline those questions in a step by step format with a simple formula that indicates whether you should buy the guitar you are evaluating or not. I’ll even modify the steps based on economic factors for those with/without cost concerns and relationship status.

My formula for decisions regarding a guitar purchase can apply to any instrument (and probably anything else one might consider). I’ll leave that for you to decide.

Be advised that there are always extenuating circumstances and conditions which can not be accounted for in any guide. I would be happy to assist you in your decision making process should you encounter difficulty. Just leave a comment and I’ll respond with my advice.
