    Yeah, they were both so great that you really can't go wrong with either one as your favorite.

    And about a drum kit. If you've got a specialized store around you for just drums go check a place like that out. Here in Cashville we've got Fork's Drum Closet and they've got good stuff for all talent levels and price ranges. New or used. If you don't have a place like that, then check the classifieds and eBay and craigslist and all that jazz. I'm sure you'll stumble across something.

That and a cheap(but decent) acoustic would be great. I figured I could score some decent deals on craigslist but I don't really know anything about acoustic guitars for whatever reason.
      cb700 kit is decent and cheap enuff to see if you're gonna stick with them then you can always upgrade.

        I just started playing guitar about 2 years ago. I have a epiphone sg and a cheap acoustic. On the acoustic the top string buzzes out when you hit it open. does anyone know how i can fix this?

            There is a truss rod running through the neck of your guitar, it is there to basically counter the pull of the strings on the neck. It sounds like you might need to tighten your truss rod to straighten the neck. You can adjust it with an allen wrench. Fret the first string in the first and 14th fret, the string should be a small gap at the 6th fret...I usually use a pack of strings as a reference. The gap should be about as thick as the cardboard sleeve that strings come in. It should only take about an 1/8th of a turn or less.

If all those are fine and it sounds good to you (keep in mind, re-stringing would be a good idea), then go for it.
                I know what i need to look for like physically i was just wondering if there are some good cheap brands i should be aware of.

                  depends on the sound you want.

                    I play bass. I play in a Christian Rock band. That apparantly lordquas thinks fails. But for all of us being fresh out of high school we do pretty well. Also, I can play somethings on guitar, and I'm ok at drums.

                        I took piano lessons for almost 15 years growing up. Won some competitions. Looking back, I probably should have kept up with it. I can still play it pretty good but nothing like I was doing. Now I don't even have a piano.....what a shame.


                        Silverback....still the best.

                          I play bass. I suck at guitar, though. I'd like to think I can sing, but it depends on what genre of music.

                            That's probably the best advice on guitar for beginners as far as getting one. Also, start acoustic. It really does help you to learn to be technically proficient before trying to start on anything too fancy.

                                I did in elementary school. The case was as big as I was. I should have played the clarinet
