I like how it came with the pick-guard separate, without the hole even drilled. Debating...

Fresh out of the box, she's smooth. Strap-locks cumpulsory.

And squeals sweetly with moderate pinching. She's already vying to become my go-to.

just glad you're not naked in the reflection

/glad....or sad?

Reflection? Didn't notice that. Not likely, as I'm in the office, and Naked Thursday isn't for two more days.

Very nice. Roomie has a '60's Gibson that's nice, but not that nice.

Well, took her home and introduced he to the rest of the electric haremTM. As I'll be using her with the GK-3 pickup to play Snuff, I immediately dropped her down into C#-standard. Even with the GK-3 hardware attached, she's still quite pretty, and accepted the "loose' tuning without complaint. It feels weird to have a pickup directly below my palm-muting position. The GK-3 requires mounting 1mm below the strings, and mounts directly to the tune-o-matic bridge. Just slide the bridge off, screw the pins in 1mm, set on the pins, and slide the bridge back on. Also installed some strap-locks (of course.)

Silence only works if you have a very intense look about you...

I am ever met by the echoes of my own silence, as Narcissus still staring at his own reflection even while death descended upon him like the cold blackness of a clouded night.

But I also muffle my farts, though sometimes they smell like the cabbage composting by the sulfur furnace of sweat-drenched Hephaestus.

Snuff. Hammer, you have good taste in music.

Got two tickets for Trailer Park Boys at work. Bought them from a gal I work with. She had finals and couldn't go. I gave one away to a stranger and told him to pay it forward. He bought me a Long Trail on tap in the lobby. Great show. Home now and tired.

The musical portion was awesome. Shredding contest with audience participation.
This one dude really really could shred.

kissfromapocalips: Snuff. Hammer, you have good taste in music.


Love that song. Enough to keep a guitar tuned to C#-Standard, full-time.
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 09:45:36 AM  
hammer, what's a C# tuning?
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 10:29:57 AM  
It's where each string is tuned down 1-1/2 intervals (E->C#; A->F#; D->B; G->E; B->G#; e->c#). In this tuning, the whole song is a series of Am, F9 and G-chords.
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 10:32:57 AM  
Basically, I use three forms of tuning, "Drop" (where the Bass-E is dropped a full interval to D, and this, in a variety of keys,), "Standard", (normal guitar tuning, albeit in a variety of keys,) and DADGAD, an Indian/ Celtic form of tuning that Jimmy Page used to play Kashmir, as well as a few other songs, to great effect.
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 10:34:18 AM  
Correction: "C# Standard...1-1/2 Steps (3 intervals)...." My terminology sucks.
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 10:40:05 AM  
The DADGAD- tuning is extremely effective for playing Kashmir on the 12-string section of the SG-1275, although the length of the song and the weight of the guitar will test your strength well.

got it, you really don't have to tune down to play the song, it just wouldn't be in the same key as the original. A lot of guitarist tune to Eb (i.e. Hendrix Little Wing) B keys are warmer...Weezer tunes down too I believe.

looking at that pic makes me realize what it would feel like if i had 6 dicks

i'd never stop playing with myself

‘’ 2012-05-03 12:18:24 PM  
I learn by playing with the music, and am a bit of a purist. I like my rendition of a song to be as close to the original artist's as possible. Usually, the reason for tuning down is to accommodate the singer's vocal range., but I agree in flattening adding warmth. SRV also played in the key of Eb. Most of Van Halen's material, Sweet Child of Mine, a lot of Ozzy's songs, even Ah, Leah by Donnie Iris and the Cruisers. I've spent decades playing along with the stereo. Now, I'm kicking it live. And it feels good.
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 12:20:20 PM  
windows media player has a slow re-play that doesn't change the pitch, very helpful.
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 12:21:50 PM  
$8500 worth of guitars in that one pic. With all of Hammertoe Jr's guitars, drum kit, piano, and brass, and the rest of my own gear, I've sunk a mini fortune into music. That pic is just the "Uptown Girls".
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 12:22:32 PM  
Yes, I've made extensive use of Media Player. It's wonderful.
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 12:24:52 PM  
What makes me sick: I spent a full month learning to play the solo from Hotel California. Of course, I try to make it as close to the original as I can, but still, it's slooow. Junior goes into his bedroom, and in three days, can play stuff like Metallica. Pisses me right the F34k off.
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 12:27:54 PM  
I bet I could get five other dicks for a lot less than $8,500.
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 12:43:36 PM  
Oh man I missed a shredding contest? shiat man I PAY FOR AIRFARE to get to those things...

Damnit.
 
‘’ 2012-05-03 12:50:13 PM  
They're worse hobbies, I'm probably in about $25K maybe a little more. I had an 8tk studio back in the day.
