    This. If you're playing indoors this is a really stupid idea.

    It does not take much heat to get the thinner strings to snap on a guitar, either. If you do this more than three seconds before the song is over, you might not be able to finish playing the song. That and the risk of injury and pissing people off.

    Don't do it.

    Here, don't forget to get your hair styled and you'll look just right for the event wearing this outfit. If you wanna burn give this look a turn!

    Yes but lets remember that Jimi succeeded because he didn't care what everyone else was thinking.

    I should have.

    In my defence I was young and foolish, and everyone else had tasteless shirts too. :p

    I had a pair of shoes so ugly back during that time period the only way to have created a distraction from them was to set a Greyhound bus on fire, maybe, if it was loaded.

    I was involved in a fire-act way back on a hotel gig and scorched the finish on what I didn't know would be a vintage tele - it was only about $285 in those years.

    Had to remove the finish after that - an ebay sin apparently.

    That's they were lucky it was only tomatoes, instead of Molotov cocktails.

    Spray whipped cream all over it or something. Fire is just not happening anymore.

    Some of you are not going to believe this, (well anyway a few) but I have it on good authority that is actually Taylor Swift in the video. You can do a lot with makeup these days.
