    I had 2 glasses of wine (approx 4 units) and a lot of vodka probs 5 shots and i was pretty drunk but didn’t throw up or feel that bad the next day. I had a very small meal with the win earlier but hadn’t eaten much prior to that for a few hours. Does this make me a lighteweight?

    Give me a good cup of Assamese and Ruth Rendell by the roaring log and I am happy as a pig rolling around in mud. But say here, are many spring bucks are going out tonight on wild parties of drink, drugs, sehexs and other vices which did not exist in my days. My nieces children have been out every night this past month and coming home late where do these young uns get the energy from? Both are at university. .I fear for them both and told the girl not to catch a taxi from those unmentionables cough Rotherham cough Rochdale. But do they listen? They've been infected at university by left wing communist beliefs and think I am outdated and how these unmentionables are nice. Haw haw. Bless all who go out tonight and stay safe and call an English taxi. I even doze off in the afternoon after dinner. So what are you all up to eh?

  • How can i become a songwriter?

    Best answer: I'd like some more info. Do you write lyrics, or are you a skilled composer who can write all the melodies, harmony parts, orchestrations, etc.?

    Best answer: I'd like some more info. Do you write lyrics, or are you a skilled composer who can write all the melodies, harmony parts, orchestrations, etc.? Have any of your songs ever been performed live, or are they in the ongoing roster of any professional singer? Please tell us the extent of your education and experience - a LOT of people say they would like to be a professional songwriter - or music composer - or dance on Broadway - or play for the NBA - but they do not have a realistic assessment of THEIR skills and just how incredible and VAST their competition is. Can you post some performances of your work? I have been a full-time professional musician/teacher/adjudicator in the NY area since 1973 - never have made ONE DOLLAR in my entire life in anything except professional music. I certainly want to encourage the next generation of fine musicians - but need to know if I am backing the right horse, as it were. So get back to us with more info, samples, etc. There are several professionals on these forums - and be aware, there are tons of faker, phonies, posers, and bratty kids, too - and they will say anything, either mean - or fawning and flattering - no matter which is true.

  • How come there aren't many electric guitars made from pine?

    Best answer: Some will say tone. Other will say blah blah. heard a blind test. Audio only. Guess the guitar and wood. all people were wrong. It was MDF.

    That said, other factors. Life of instrument. Pine is raw form is soft. It can bow as it dries out. However I have a couple polar guitars. I can get decent tone out of it. I have lots of effects to do so. At least to what I like to hear.

    Now acoustics are a whole different animal. That depends on so much, even with the right woods. exotic woods etc. They can still sound bad, have less sustain. Dull. Over bright. etc etc anything a guitar can lack. I built one out of home depot wood. Semi acoustic. Oak neck, and red oak thin plywood top and bottom. Did not shave down the top to make it thin and give it resonace. poplar sides. Acoustic wise it sounds horrible. Homemade pickup though effects, it sounds pretty decent. This is a nylon guitar I never intended to play acoustically. So F-it I said.,

    My daughter recently played a leading role where her leading man (playing the character's fiance) brought his husband along to watch the filming. She's also played three lesbian/bisexual roles. And for the record, she's straight.

  • HELP! Can’t decide which way to hold guitar??

    I am getting a guitar for Christmas and I have been trying out my dads acoustic because I need to know if I need a righty or lefty but I can’t decide.

    I am getting a guitar for Christmas and I have been trying out my dads acoustic because I need to know if I need a righty or lefty but I can’t decide. Playing righty I can strum and pick better but playing lefty I can fret better but not strum and pick as good. If I’m playing air guitar left hand feels naturally more comfortably but actually holding a guitar I can’t really decide. When I play rock band guitar I hold it lefty because just pressing keys is easier for my right hand but it’s not really strumming on a video game guitar. I don’t mean to sound like an idiot but I really don’t know Which way should I go?? I am right handed dominant by the way and am getting an electric guitar for Christmas. HELP FAST

    I started taking guitar lessons a year ago. I chose guitar because I already had a guitar lying around and I guess I was just bored and wanted to try something new. I learned how to play my first song within 2 months and I was learning very quickly. But then I started learning bar chords, my teacher began teaching me a new song every week and I couldn’t keep up. It’s to the point where I have no motivation whatsoever to play guitar. I really want to “enjoy the process” and enjoy playing guitar but I don’t know how. All the guitar players I talk to tell me how passionate they are about guitar and how they can play for 6 or more hours a day, and I could probably go for months without guitar and not miss it a bit. Every time I convince myself to actually play guitar I end up giving up after 5 minutes. Any advice?

  • Are many art & music teachers these days Squidwards?

    Egos ten times the size of their talents. Angry and bitter that they didn't make the big time. Especially if they have a student who appears talented enough that they MIGHT.

  • My section leader says I shouldn't need help on an instrument I barely have learned?

    I have just made the switch from a flute to a french horn which are two very different instruments and am struggling a little bit.

    I have just made the switch from a flute to a french horn which are two very different instruments and am struggling a little bit. My section leader refuses to help me because he claims he and two other students were "given no help at all in the beginning" when they started learning the instrument 5 years ago; all switching from trumpet. Both the trumpet and french horn are brass instruments, I understand that they are different, but not nearly as drastic as the difference between a flute and a french horn. Is my section leader correct in believing that I should need no help and should be able to learn all on my own?

  • Strat trem block bending?

    Best answer: A tremolo arm is suppose to screw into the block at an angle to compensate for the floating angle of the bridge. https://www.guitarexperience.co.uk/media/catalog/product/cache/1/thumbnail/200x/040ec09b1e35df139433887a97daa66f/b/l/blkarm_c.jpg The EJ Strats are setup uniquely in the factory, according to EJ's... show more
    Best answer: A tremolo arm is suppose to screw into the block at an angle to compensate for the floating angle of the bridge.
    https://www.guitarexperience.co.uk/media...
    The EJ Strats are setup uniquely in the factory, according to EJ's own specs, so that the bridge comes flat to the body.


    Vintage Strat trem bars are notoriously short on the threaded side and can get close to the body.
    You can see on this '62 how the trem bar has marred the body on its turnaround.
