    The DVD cover for S2P2 has been released!! It looks good, predictable with APEC cover but still looks good. Can't wait to get it!

    I'm dropping in after about 15 years haha... is it just me or is last.fm full of muse fans? at least one social network community has good taste :P as for ellisha, I saw somewhere on this page that people were discussing how to play his music... try one of the many chaser groups (not music, but groups) if not, you can whinge with me why there's no decent tabs on ultimate guitar of jamie cullum
