Wow thats a detailed site about nails. I just grow mine to the length that I feel comfortable with. I havent had a nail on my ring or pinky for a while, but I rarely use my pinky so thats ok. I make due with my index/middle.

Yeah, I found it on a classical forum I visit. It's really good, but incomplete. The pinky is rarely used at all in classical too. How do you not use your ring finger for all your songs though? Sounds like you would need to from listening.

Quote by Silverstein14
Well I do use it, but the nail isn't long right now, so I just have to make due until it grows

Fake plastic nails ... Radiohead parody anyone? I'm unable to mentally grow out my nails, bah.

I use the words "Fake Plastic Trees" whenever I talk about...well, artificial christmas trees and stuff like that. Beautiful song though, beautiful.

I usually keep my nails sticking out past my fingertips a bit. Too much and I lose control of my playing, too little and it doesn't do anything. I can't say I intensely take care of them though, I just use a normal nail file for filing them down. It sucks whenever one breaks though.

And tomorrow I get to play me some Pipe Organ and possibly record some too.

I've seen that one at my school multiple times. A new one I've seen is "Please don't poke smot "

I want someone to write something like "Class of 2013 rules!"....because then I would want to write "too bad the world ends in 2012" under it.

I for one think it would be entertaining to have "The Chamber of Secrets has been opened; mudbloods beware" written on a bathroom wall.

If it's near you, I'd see if you could go and try it out. Breedlove generally makes some very nice acoustics.

and Natrone, I'd do that except I'm generally that kid who doesn't do anything bad and has handwriting so messy that everyone knows what his looks like. However, once my friends in AP English took the infamous Big Brother Is Watching You and placed it under security cameras, above urinals, bathroom stall doors, and some other places.

More so talking about the cost since I don't know much about them. Def will try it out if I can though.
#135
Yeah, breedloves don't usually go down that low. If it sounds good, I'd say go for it, breedloves are reaaaaaaaly nice.

I learned that I can't go to the Muse concert on March 6th at TD Garden in Boston sadly. They ahd silversun pickups opening for them. I could take a train from portland down there, but I'd have no way back that night. Since that's not happening...I'm thinking maybe I can go see James Taylor and Carole King in June. Although the cheap cheap seats are $37. Still...it'd be a good show to go and see.

My friend went/is seeing Muse in toronto. She's flying from Halifax haha - I almost did the same for State Radio, but I had a midterm the next day

My mom's not letting me go because A. She won't let me drive to boston. B. She's not driving to boston because she's busy that night. C. I'd be taking the last train to Boston. D. I'd have to stay in a hotel. My friend's boyfriend is playing a show 20 minutes away from where I live though, I think I'll go see that instead.

I'd have no issue with staying in a hotel

Pick update: Snagged a TeckPick from a guitar store today, it's aluminum or some metal alloy - it's garbage. Metallic sound, doesn't have flex, but it's easy to bend with your fingers.

Going down to a guitar center tomorrow that stocks:
Larrivee, Cole-Clark, Stone Bridge, Walden, Blueridge, Eastman and Oscar Smit.

They all seems like high high priced models, so I'll see how they play out. Also going to see how much my Garrison is worth.

Anyone have experiences with Guilds?
#141
Guild's are pretty solid for the most part. Their GAD line is one of the best in the price range. I have no idea about their higher end lines though. I heard that after Fender bought them out, they weren't that great anymore except for the GAD's.

Buy outs ruin everything haha. The only guild player I know of is chad from state radio, and if you've heard his acoustics you'll notice it's not what most really look for in a guitar. He played a D40 though, which was pre-fender buy out.


The GAD's look nice, I'll be giving them a play when I find them. Gotta try out every guitar possible! .. btw, I played Seagull s6 slim - is this a short necked guitar? It felt like it and that made it hard to play.

Wisdom from above a urinal at a local bar...

^ That's pretty awesome. The bars around here just do the awkward two-holer thing. Two shitters, no stalls, and the door doesn't lock.

#145
Depends on the bar around here, but the relevant bar has a toilet and a urinal with a door that doesn't lock or even have a doorknob. It is also so small that you could actually sit on the shitter and pee in the urinal without having to be 12 years old... you could also wash your hands all at the same time.

Played a Rosewood Larrivee today - can't really form a great opinion at the moment, it was different to say the least.
#148
In general, I would say they're very balanced guitars. Not too much bass or high end. They're not my thing, for the most part. However, there was one Sapele special D-03 that I absolutely loved.

Larrivee L-03E, the one with sapeale wood. It's 1300 at L&M, thinking about trying it out. How close is sapeale to mahogany? I heard it is similar, but I've never played it before.
#150
Sound-wise, the should be very similar. The sound is very dark. It's definitely a love/hate kind of thing.

Going to try it out, I think the rosewood model is 1400. Give them both another go, try to get a feel for that neck.

So...for ramblers (bluegrass group I'm in) we played a show at the state house today...first part was in the "rotunda", which was crowded (as in small, not much room to move around), but easy to take care of, only needed to use two mics. Sounded really cool in there. Then all of my chorus ensemble friends sang the National anthem (an acapella arrangement with either three or four part harmony) in the state chambers before they started their session. I thought it was kinda funny when I looked down on their laptops and saw several of them on facebook.

Just wait.

If you look at the number we smoked the other teams better than you. I blame poor playing and I also must add I don't have any interest in hockey

We just smoked Russia. 7-3 final score. Luongo was getting beastly near the end.

In any case, the US didn't own us. Only Ryan Miller did.

Guys.....my mane....my wonderful, fantastic mane of hair that I spent the better part of a year growing out....I had to get it cut off today.




Yes, I know, this is a dumb thing to get upset about. However, you go grow out your hair for the better part of a year only to have a baseball coach who you don't even like tell you either it or you gets cut.

I don't care what anybody says, Luongo is always beastly, just in different degrees of beastliness.
