Re: What's Your Favorite Christmas Song to Play?

Stryper Winter Wonderland and Twisted Sister let it snow. They're pretty fun, I think Twisted Sister is more fun to play.

Re: How often do you use the butt-ends when playing?

As others have mentioned I play butt end when X-Sticking, mainly because I haven't invested time into working out how to spin them round.
