    Worst You've Been Called

    An ex called me a loner as we were breaking up. She was a really outgoing partier and I wasn't.

    I say forget about 'the thing'and concentrate on getting your band to learn songs outside their comfort zone. If you sing bring in songs that you can sing that aren't soft rock. That's about all you can do and if they don't go for it then you may have a tough decision to make...

    bourns vs CTS pots

    I like pots that are easy to turn, too. For that reason I use DiMarzio or Mojotone.

    Pink Floyd Argument Bait

    That's right. The Pink Floyd template was set with Pipers at the Gates of Dawn.

    Thick Plastic Finishes on Guitars is a Buzzkill

    I have a "Crafted in Indonesia"Squier Bullet Strat HH with a blue sparkle finish that is the most acoustically resonant guitar that I have, and it gets the most play other than my acoustic. I have no idea what kind of finish it has

    Pay Attention to Your Breakfast!

    I was watching TV and absentmindedly eating a bag of nacho Doritos when I got a ball of conglomerated Doritos seasoning that had gongealed into a ball about 1/3 of an inch in diameter. I ate it. It was delicious. There were 3 or 4 of those balls in that bag.

    New Telecaster American Pro 2

    I have a 2020 American Professional II Tele just like the one in the op. To me the pickups are the weak point of the guitar, and the series position does not approximate a humbucker. It IS a fatter sound so if you're used to a Tele it might be enough. Yes. Late '86, actually.

    Snark shade - This settles it for me - No snark 'bout snarks

    Same here. I just don't like the look of keeping the tuner hanging on the headstock.

    This man raised an opossum. Now he thinks they are smarter than dogs.

    I think possums are cool. And they kill and eat snakes. They're immune to snake venom.

    A buddy wanted me to record a song with him and then he doesn't show up.

    How about "Oops I did it again?"

    A buddy wanted me to record a song with him and then he doesn't show up.

    Correct on all counts, I think. According to his wife he has a serious drinking problem, which I never knew about. She says he's been lying to her about how much and how often he's drinking. At this point I just hope he gets the help she thinks he needs.

    A buddy wanted me to record a song with him and then he doesn't show up.

    Well, maybe, but after talking to his wife last night I found out that he has an alcohol problem. On the night that I texted him he was drinking AND driving, as in driving while drinking, ran off the road, hit a couple of trees, and totally his truck and ended up in jail. She says that he had a...

    Ex-bandmates want to meet for a drink!

    No news. The chosen meeting place had a band that was VERY loud and played an unbelievably long set. When I left they had been playing for over two hours and I realized that he there would be no real discussion. We did try to talk some but it was like yelling. As I was leaving the lead singer...

    Help! Scratches after using #2 steel wool

    What does Lollar use for fine "sanding?" I've used OOOO steel wool on my Fender necks with no issues. I take the necks off or cover the pickups with masking tape.
