Of course i would probably use acoustic for that, my dad has an old vintage epiphone (30+ years) and my sister might sell me her washburn acoustic/electric, plays real nice. Any way off topic, what do you think iPod or New electric?
As an owner of an Ipod and umm.. a guitar, I believe you should consider this. Ipods are fantastic, however, do you have a cd player? The only music you can put on an ipod is music off of your cds and purchased itunes, so not only would you have to pay for the ipod but also songs to go on it. Get a guitar, buy cds.

actually I'm pretty sure any music you get can be converted to an iPOD friendly format.

well, if you can wait, wait till apple releases the next ipod and buy one then. or if you're certain a current one won't bore you when the next one come out, get one now. my bro has a first gen, still works for him.

and yes, all you current music can be put on your ipod. i've gotten wierd formats for some sound stuff at church, and with a little work got it on my ipod. (yes, i run my ipod straight through the board for some stuff...i've plans to use it for slideshows as well.)

Don't know what you mean by external hard drive but all IPods serve as Flash Drives, I assume that's what you mean.

I have a shuffle, it is the 120 song shuffle. Mine is currently holding 135 or so, it has held over 140. A lot of that depends on song length, but I've had well over 8 hours of music on it for only $100.

My shuffle has a little USB thing on the bottom. I plug it straight into my USB 2.0 port and it charges . Takes about an hour for me to get a full charge and I've never had it die on me.

heh---I dont need that stuff, eveyrthings on my computer, If i'm not listening to music on my computer I can make a CD or listen to the radio.

Also with over 16,000 songs around 94 gigs, wouldnt fit on any ipod anyway.

well iam not much into "need the new model" thing, a nano might even do, they hold a thousand songs, thats good enough i think, but an original with 5 thousand is more than enough, probably enough room for all my music i'll ever get, maybe.

Yeah you can convert them to AAC format with ITunes. But I don't suggest the downloading of free music, to risky nowadays with viruses and the RIAA making that list and checking it twice. Scare tactic?? Plus I like to support artists... most of the time.

i've got a 20gig color, i've got the bulk of my comp's files backed up on it. it serves as a hard disk, not a flash drive. maybe the shuffles/nanos are different, though. maybe portable hard drive is a better name for it.

All a flash drive really is is a small hard drive. If you think about it.

you can download huge amounts of free legal music from purevolume, myspace, soundclick, etc.

no, a flash drive is flash memory, the data is stored on a chip electronically. a hard disk is a more "permenant" storage method, the data is written on a physical disk. i think of flash drives more as RAM than hard disk space.
