Rip Into Your Favorite Toy Dolls Tracks
w/ Guitar Lessons, Olga Style

This one goes out to Ariel and all the rest of the Isotope's guitar playing amigos in need of some beginning of the week axe-slinging inspiration...

If you've ever walked into the front door of the Isotope and heard the hilarious and hyperkinetic tunes of The Toy Dolls burning out of the soundsystem, you'll know why this unrelenting three piece band has such a huge following everywhere and is so well loved by our staff.

Olga, the guitar wielding genius who makes the term "punk guitar god" sound not quite so funny after all, is offering up free web-based guitar lessons in quickly downloadable segments. Go ahead, learn those lightning quick fret fingering techniques Olga is famous for, and hear some truly great tunes while you're at it. Or you can just sit back and watch as Olga rips through the classics on the world's smallest amp. Great stuff!

We suggest Dougy Giro, She Goes To Finos, Yul Brynner Was A Skinhead, Glenda & the Test Tube Baby, and of course... Nellie The Elephant.
