Alright, so my last exam (French text) was planned for tomorrow. However, apparently some exams have been stolen in schools around the country and now the guy who found out has made it public..

Nope, you're quite right, literally don't understand a word of that

Still, early holidays are always good, got anything planned?

I'll be doing some sort of "'train"trip with a couple of mates around Europe (Berlin - Prague - Budapest - Vienna) for 10 days, but that will be in August, so plenty of time as of right now.

I know a first (now second I guess) math major, and she's always swamped up to the hilt with work.

Makes me glad I've made it four years without taking a single math or hard science class.

Computer Science, I know a decent number of Maths students though, the first years have a decent amount of work but I know a third year guy who just finished who I didn't see much of at all this year

Biggest workload by far though is Architecture students, that shit is insane.

Working... kind of. Just started an internship at a major technology company and I'm staying at a Bed & Breakfast in rural England until the contract for my new house comes up at the end of the week

It's been a damn busy time for me of late. I have a blog though http://zaphodibm.blogspot.com/ Which reminds me, I need to update that when I get back to the B&B later...

Also because of all this... I haven't played guitar for over a week. Getting quite unhappy about that but I should have my gear back with me at the end of this week

Summer's arrived so my teaching work is dying down, I'm gonna meet up with some old friends and have some good times! Pro-tip for anyone else with a shaved head, it needs sun lotion too.

Oh ouch man, I had a similar problem once; I have quite thin hair so in direct sun for too long my scalp gets sunburn down my parting. ALL the pain.

Wish I had time for proper fun at the minute though

1-year UG-anniversary! (more or less)
Uhm, yeah.. Restringed my guitar 2 days ago, cleaned and oiled the neck, put some 11's on it, cleaned the knobs, pickguard, tom-bridge and whatnot. Ended up with a huge back-bow so it's currently waiting for a set-up at my local store. Played a 7-string for the first time in my life. Signed up for lessons with this guy. Trip to Amsterdam with my dad planned for tomorrow. Good times..

How did you feel about the 7 string then? Ready to join the legion?

Holy crap, Marcel Coenen... I remember being introduced to this guy when the Guitars Suck videos were flying around on Google Video... those were awesome, shame most of them don't exist any more Awesome player to sign up for lessons with, here's hoping he's half the teacher his playing would indicate!

I may have bought a new guitar...



Trying to get myself around to doing a video with it but I also bought an interface so I'm still trying to figure out how to sync audio and video

I have a question and I don't where to put it, so I ask it here. Can a song that's in drop b be played in drop d? They use the same fingerings, right?

If you mean whether it can be played in a different key then yes but the number of down tuned songs that can be played on a guitar tuned higher in the original key is very very small.

This would probably be better off in Musician Talk somewhere though.

Thanks man, that means more coming from you than it would from most people When the album hits I think I'm going to have to ask you to listen to one track specifically; one of the only two with a solo in it and definitely the harder solo, just to see what you think.

Hm I kinda encountered something in a song I transcribed. It seemed the guitarist was getting harmonics on his upstrokes as well. Now I know general pinch harmonic technique that it's usually done with a downpick keeping your thumb about level with the pick, but does anyone do it the other way with the finger on the other side? I'm imagining the possibility of something like consistent tremolo picked PHs...which could be really fun, but is it doable?

I've seen it done and experimented with upstroke pinches a little in the past but I've generally found that if you want a high tremolo picked harmonic sound you're probably better off picking a natural harmonic and tremolo picking that. Half of what gives pinches their sound is a good vibrato and you're not going to get that if you're tremolo picking the note really?
