    I'm going on vacation next week to Virginia, in the Earlysville and Norfolk areas. Since I'm from Canada, I'm looking to pick up a few music items for cheaper than up here. Are there any good music stores in those areas that anybody can recommend?

    thanks

    Hmmm, now that's a real possibility ;)

    Assuming, of course, that you don't mind some old fool from Jersey handling your stuff :bag:

    Drag ...... I appreciate the invite, but I need to be back in Jersey for a recording date on that date (the 6th) :rollno:

    Actually, it's just as well .... I finally have my GAS well under control and the last item hanging out is either something like this .......

    ..... or something like this .....

    and I'm pretty sure that stepping into the lions den won't help me to control it ..... ain't enough Tums in the world for that :eek:

    "Know" is possibly a stretch, he's our "main man" for Roscoe there, and I speak with him on the phone quite often. Cool guy.
