Everyone has a hobby.. mine is is playing the guitar (rather badly I may add). I love wholenote .com. Are there any other hobbyists out there who have a site to reccomend?

Oddly enough, the current issue of Novell Connection magazine has an article devoted to learning to play the guitar online and has a few sites of interest in the article.

I muck about inside guitar amps, mess with high voltages, and fool with tube electronics. The Ampage is full of info that keeps me interested and cautions that keep me alive.

But what would an amp be without a guitar to pump rock through it? I follow the TDPRI and the FDP for all my Tellie needs, and the Les Paul Forum to fix my Gibson jones. (To me there are no other worthy axes).

I check the 13th Fret when I want to drool over other people's acoustic guitars.

These high-traffic bulletin boards are full of info and tips, without the sixth-grade flame warring that usenet seems to encourage.

Man, I'm probably really stating the obvious, here, but personally, I think is a pretty decent place for interviews, instruction, tablature, product info, etc...

Harmony Central is pretty good, too. I've found lots of shareware instruction and recording programs there.

I was going to recommend a few tablature sites, but they're all linked to the above. I'm a member, but sometimes it seems a bit too commmercial. Wholenote & Harmony Central seem cool. Thanks!

dfowler, if you haven't tried one of these, you owe it to yourself! The tone, craftsmanship, playability, & sheer beauty are hard to put into words.

Active Bass and the bass lessons at Guitarnoise.

dfowler - I'd like to build a valve pre (well, headphone) amp for bass. Thanks for the pointers (if you have more advice, please contact me - thanks! (hope this isn't abusing Mefi rules)).

I like comic books. There, I admitted it. Longbox is a pretty good site for losers like me. :)

I enjoy storm chasing. The Tornado Project is an interesting site and probably the best tornado information source online. It is especially interesting if you have never visited it before because you are guaranteed to learn something from it. My favorite all-around storm chasing site has been down for some time, unfortunately.
