    Re: We Honor Your Service

    I served in Vietnam which I strongly believe was a senseless war and what makes me sick is that there were over 40,000 deaths of US serviceman 22 years old and younger !

    Re: Who has thin bluechips?

    I have a BC 35 as recommended by Jill McCauley ! Love it on some songs but also use a tad 45 and less often a 55. 35 really shines for those triplets and when you want to play faster/quicker.
