Best electric guitar resources?

What are some of the best resources on the electric guitar? Any medium is welcome: books, videos, articles, etc. Money is not an issue; if there's a really good reference that costs thousands of dollars, I'd like to know about it. Collectively, I'd like these resources to cover everything a professional electric guitarist would need to know, from technique (basic and advanced) to related tech (amps, effects units, etc.) to guitar maintenance. Thank you!

Wood primer for guitar painting?

I"m about to paint a electric guitar body. It's completely stripped of hardware and paint, and has been sanded. I'm going to use acrylics or enamels. Should I put down a primer before starting on the colors? Or something else to seal the raw wood ,like a clear varnish? If so, what kind of primer would be good for wood? I know that I"ll need to do a few layers of varnish/lacquer after the paints have dried , but I'm wondering about the undercoating primer. And if someone has a recommendation for paints, please tell me. I'm painting a multiple color "scene" not just a flat overall body color. Thanks.

Desperately need to find the pedal steel guitarists' prayer! Well, it's not really desperate, but would really like to.

Where can I find the pedal steel guitar player's prayer, an humorous, obscure poem only relevant to pedal steel guitarists? I am sure I've seen it on the web somewhere at some point in the not-too-distant past, but my google-fu has failed me.

Guitar Hero Kick Pedal Dead

My Guitar Hero drum's kick pedal is dead. I looked online but there are a lot of options and mixed reviews for most of what I found. What's the best mix of frugality and "not going to die on me"-ality that I can find? I'm not opposed to buying an entire new set if that makes more sense.

Tonerite for acoustic guitar substitute?

I have been thinking about getting a tonerite for guitar. I have no doubt that they work, but don't really wanna spend $150.00. I am trying to think of a less expensive, but suitable substitute that will vibrate the instrument in the same way. I am thinking an aquarium aerator with its tiny motor may fit the bill. Tell me how wrong I am and why. Any other ideas for a sub for the tonerite?
