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?

Acoustic Slide Blues Guitar

Please recommend slide blues guitar artists to me, particularly modern ones. Love the sound, not sure where to get it. Solo guitar with no vocals is preferred, but by no means necessary. Acoustic strongly preferred.

Help Me Find This Guitar

How to get my stolen guitar back.

Some guy is selling a guitar that belongs to me on his website, in Dallas. I am in Los Angeles. The guitar has been missing since 2005, when a con-man borrowed it from me who subsequently sold it to pay off the mafia or something. I didn't realize I had been duped for a long time. I was stupid and shouldn't have trusted him. He was impossible to get a hold of and strung me along for months and disappeared but I didn't file a police report because I didn't think they'd be able to find the guitar. Now I just want the guitar back, and I know I have the legal right to it. So what do I do? file a civil suit? call the police in Dallas? [more inside]

Acoustic rhythm guitar licks?

I've been playing acoustic guitar for a bunch of years now (and am so-so at it). I really like those transitional moments between chords -- stuff you can throw in to make just strumming along a bit more interesting; things like the turnaround in Alice's Restaurant, but even really simple things like -- starting on a D chord and leading on the low e string 0-2-3 to get to a G chord. What are your favorite little phrases like those? Or, alternatively, do those have an official name I can google? Or, alternatively alternatively, any good websites or books for that kind of thing? Oh -- I mostly play with a pick, so I'm more interested in phrases you can play that way.

Does Line6 have looper effects pedal software?

I have an old Line6 GuitarPort with Gearbox 3.5 on a Windows laptop. Does anyone know if there is a Line6 plugin or other software available (from Line6 or elsewhere) that I can download to my laptop that will simulate a looper pedal (or a phrase looper as defined by wikipedia ). I'm trying to record the rhythm for a song I like, have it loop and then freestyle the solo on my guitar, all through my computer.
