Hi Vaughan,

i love Thievery corp. !!!

been trying some dub downtempo but i'm not so good at building complexe drum

anyhow if anyone interesting on listening more of the DubStep scene go to :

I use DAD John, though not for any particular sound. Its just that I re learnt all my chords into DAD, so to change now would confuse the hell outa me!

Roosterman,   what tuning?   DGB sure works good for a lot of reggae chords.
