Re: cool guitar synth intros

I (stupidly) passed up an opportunity to perform as part of an ensemble of
100 electric guitars playing Glenn Branca in NYC about 2 years ago (or was
it three..). Dumb dumb dumb!

We were all asked to bring small amps.  Still, 100 15-watt amps would
probably add up to something hellish and loud.
