Im still on my George Harrison kick- a couple days ago, (thursday actually- ha) a radio station here had TBT (ThrowBack Thursday) playing Beatles solo works all day long. One of the most striking cuts was George Harrrrison playing slide blues guitar along side Alvin Lee. Bluest Blues. A real bittersweet moment, to hear both Alvin Lee (dead) of Ten Years After fame and Mr Harrison (also dead), two great musicians, both former life staples for me in my youth, playing together
The forest rangers recorded rock with a touch of country or folk overtones. With a number of different lead singers. They did most of the background musica for sons of anarchy. Lousy show but good music

Allman Bros Band on Pandora while Im retouching photos ... the main thing I like about Pandora is the fact that it plays all these other bands "like" the band Ive selected so I hear things Ive never heard before..... Coincidently the thing I hate about it is the fact that it plays bands other then what Ive selected....
I'm also a musician, and am interested in your experience with the GR1!!!!
Since I got the GR-1, I almost never play just plain ole' guitar anymore. A lot of the music I play sounds great with sax, vibraphones, flute, piano, etc, etc.
I lay down tracks with rhyhthm guitar, bass, drums, then play along with above instruments. I also lay down background strings or vox (synthetic voices) which sounds awesome to me.
I'm almost ready to make a recording of about 8 tunes; A mix of originals, old standards, and arrangements. This gadget has opened up my music experience by an order of magnitude.
If I'd known it was this much fun I would have done this years ago. And it cost just under 200$. I recently spent 2500$ bucks on a new Les Paul that just sits there on the wall......I fitted my GR-1 pickup on a 500$ MIM Fender Jaguar and that's all I play now.

I'm interested in using it to process different string instruments! I can't play guitar (keys for the last 30 years though), but the experimentation would be a lot of fun!!
This unit has three hundred preset sounds on it with options to add more. The Roland GR series is now up to GR-55, with about five versions since the GR-1. I can't guess what the others have, but if I did, I'd say they probably made it more user friendly rather than adding a bunch more sounds.
You can spend up to about 8-900$ for a new unit.
I'm thinking of selling the Les Paul......played very little.
