Any of you fellow smokers do this?
Back when I smoked I have, but I can almost guarantee you won't like the results WHEN you forget it's there.
An unlit one in the headstock might fly in today's world, I mean is there actually any venues left at this point where you can smoke?
I used to think it was cool as hell that Eddie VH did that.
Then he lost part of his tongue to cancer
Used to do it all the time - because, well, just because.
And I was young. Luckily I gave them up - 18 months ago.
Clapton and Zappa, et all did it but I never saw the point - you can't grab a drag while you're playing and it was always down to the filter by the end of the song. Maybe it would work if you were in the Ramones or the Buzzcocks.
Merle used to hold a cigarette in some sort of goofy way and play and grab a drag when he got the chance. Really looked odd to see him doing that. Looked like he was smelling the palm of his hand.
One of these would be good for holding a cigar onto the headstock.
ya I did it when I was young and a smoker, left a nasty scar in an otherwise very nice blonde P-Bass. I smoked Camel Turkish Blend back then.
I just keep mine in my mouth, even singing. Don't take it out or put it down unless smoke gets in my eyes.
Haven't gigged in a long time. Guess I never will again if you can't smoke while you are playing.
this is better, Billy G knows whats what
you gotta watch Ronnie Wood - he knows all the tricks
I don't miss smoking at all.
Have a few headstocks with yellow marks on them.
seriously, how long are these gigs that you can't last that long without a cigarette?
I thought I had a problem when I smoked...
Never did and will slap the snot out of anyone that does on my guitar..And I've been smoking 70 +years..
Greg Dulli rocks a mic stand with an ashtray & cup holder. Straight up innovator.
I've never seen a smoking ban stop a band from lighting up.
I did it copying Van Halen, got a Strat that still has the burn mark. The first thing I thought if was SRV playing Lenny. He works the cigarette pretty good the first couple of minutes of the video
Frank Reckard, who replaced Albert Lee as the guitar player in the Hot Band, used to hold his cigarette between his ring finger and pinky on his picking hand, and when he would use his B-bender he would take a puff. His left hand would pull down on the neck, of his B-bender LP JR, while his right hand went up to his mouth to take a puff, then blow smoke rings while he finished the solo. It was always fun to watch him play.
I just have mine in my mouth while I play so I can actually smoke and enjoy the thing. I sing that way too.
