LIMS 09: day three's top picks

What did we tell you! It's the weekend, and the rockstars have arrived. While Roland's Juno-Di synth and Peavey's Revalver III update continue to fly the flag in the new gear corner, Steve Vai, Guthrie Govan and The Commitments are leading day three's highlights with style.

Oh, and please do pull up a chair (or a stool) and join us in our favourite new hobby: finger drumming. Now, where did we leave that NanoPad…
