Hi all.

I don't visit these forums too often but I stumbled across this article on the homepage of the Reuters news pages in the UK. I read these for finanical news. Imagine my surprise to find a) and article about a guitar and b) a quote from a UG forum user.

Just thought you boys and girls might find it as amusing as I did.

Heh, very cool, I've never seen this UGer before but he/she must be very proud of himself

And why do Reuters folks use UG as a news source in the first place?

It looks to me like someone who should be writing news stories is actually learning new tunes on the guitar at work. Where do I sign up?

I want to be quoted. I know almost none of my posts have anything to do with the topic at hand.. But still. I would love to see an article about abortion with the words, "One Ultimate Guitar Member has this to say about the subject: 'My God, I really hate that son of a bitch Sigma. He made my life miserable from the age of seven to thirteen. He is the hardest video game boss of all time, no doubts.'"

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Yeah that's pretty cool. Thanks for linking us to that.

Reuters is constantly contacting me about using my quotes in their articles. But they want permission to sanitize them. I just tell them to use the entire fucking post or forget the whole deal.


... they haven't used any of my quotes.

Why the hell would you want a guitar to tune itself? What a waste of expense; it takes less than a few seconds to tune yer guitar.

The self tuning thing seems a tad controversial... however, the intonation help thingy seems very, very useful. Geting intonated with a 0.2% error margin? I'd rather use that than my chromatic tuner anyday.

And this thread is not complete until LetTheBassPlay posts in here.

Isn't permission needed for quotes to be used in news items?

Right-o. Tuning is a pain in the arse, not an art.

No, no it doesn't. You're part of an extremely large community and one of you gets quoted in some article not many people will read and you think you're famous?

I wonder if they asked him to use that quote there.

Agreed, lol.

Since when is it a skill to tune a string? You look at your tuner, you try and get the light to go green.


What about those of us who tune by ear? Skill, I say!

Pretty cool that a UG'er got quoted. Maybe this will recruit new, sophisticated, news-reading members

Online guitar forum shocks world
Senior government officials today expressed their concern over the growing popularity of the UltimateGuitar.com forums, which have come into the public eye recently after reporters working for Reuters discovered that it is responsible for encouraging rape, buttsecks and the mass genocide of all false metal fans.
The president will make a statement later today and although there has not yet been any word on the White House's official stance regarding UG, many believe the president intends to declare war.
Guitar players the world over are believed to be stockpiling strings, Led Zeppelin albums and lubricant in an attempt to prepare for the worst.
