You need another thread for more tension.

Make the new one a poll.

You know, people laugh at these, but our vocalist has a kazoo at every practice. When we write songs, he uses it to hum out a melody while he reads over the lyrics to see how he wants to do phrasing, etc. He says it helps him to hear himself better without using a mic and causing interference with our writing.

It's working so far, so I won't complain

As for your problem, TS, I would advise getting a locking trem, but anything but a floyd rose, then taping it back in a position that whammy's it backwards and increases the pitch of the strings so that it's at a Kb/J# this way you can just take the tape off to tune it back to standard.

J# is for pussys. Go Lb or go home. Its a much more natural note. Sounds great with your low E as a Kb.

Unless you can suspend a 4x4 wheel drive off the ground with your high E string it just isn't makin' it

Wat?

The thing you quoted is something that I said in a thread about Marshalls, and it was completely relevant.

Ah, okay. What the hell was that about? Are there seriously bots that just go around spamming on sites like this? I mean, to qutoe something I said from a completely different thread is pretty odd...

What you really need is a new amp.
