I'm dead scared of that shit, any reports ?

Yeah I know the pit is probably not the best place to ask this kind of question

Unless you're a ****ing idiot and put your face right up to the headstock while stringing it abnormally fast then i dont see how you could be stupid enough to snap your eye. I've snapped my wrists and arms before, but eyes? Nah.

I've had one on my cheek before, left a pretty smooth scratch and absolutely killed.

I guess there's atleast a slim margin of possibility that it could happen. Just like there's a slim margin of possibility that you could be struck by lightning, and it's not entirely impossible that sharks could invent reverse-scuba tanks.

put a pillow or a dishcloth or something on the fretboard if you're worried
but unless you're using crazy gauge strings in crazy tunings, you've no need to worry

After jacking off about 3 times in that particular day, I jacked off a final time around midnight and as I was about to ejaculate I was trying to hold it off for as long as possible while stroking. So when I finally came my ejaculate shot out of me and slammed into my shoulder at an incredibly fast speed. I've never seen it come out with such force before or since. But thankfully, it never got into my eye.

Guitar string snapping on balls is a more common incident.

see how far you can put a string up your urethra.

it will prevent strings from snapping.

I've had a sting get stuck in my thumb before, I was tuning a high E string, I tightened it too tight and it snapped and the end of there string got into my thumb, but it wasn't deep into the skin, I just pulled it out. And it snapped on my hand and now I had this red line on my hand

No because I loosen my strings before I cut them.

Seriously, those things are under around 100 lbs. of tension. Do people actually cut them tuned to pitch?

He means when you're bending a string and it breaks or tuning it to pitch for the first time.

Oh, and imagine how violinists feel.


Ah. Well in that case, lucky enough that it's still no. They always seem to snap downward for me, but stop before smacking the back of my pick arm.

And their strings never break. My brother has a violin he played when he was 13. He had the same strings on it until he was twenty. They sounded crap, but they did not break or even look close to breaking.

The string pulls in the direction along the string. Where do you reckon the vertical force strong enough to shoot the string in your eye would come from?
Nowhere. it just can't happen.

Unless, as already stated, you put your eye on the string while doing it.
Not sure if a sig is a necessity.

good job grammering there op

That's a fairly common slur these days. It's not like he was using a particularly outdated word like "dago" or "pickaninny," so I don't really get the 1950's part of your comment.

You need to brush up on your racism and then you can come back to the Internet. I too was amused by an Internet badass patting himself on the back for using chink in casual, completely unrelated, online conversation, but I don't think use of antiquated vocabulary is why you should be upset.

Quote by Redsectoreh
I must admit; every time I change my strings I fear this will happen to me.



this

when I am restringing and I start to tune, I point the guitar away from me because I really think a string will snap and go straight through my glasses and into my eyes.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

You guys seriously don't take the tension down first? You might just deserve a string in your eye. I mean, if its to the point that you live in fear of a string killing you, I think you're ******ed for doing anything except taking the tension down, if it concerns you so much.
