my brother sawed my strings. plain and simple. all six of them, cut. cuz he's a ****ing lunatic. i would return the favor in the future, but could someone PLEASE mail me some slinkys? i won't be able to work untill mcdonalds hires me, which will probably be like a month. i have no deneros, and my parents will not help me out. any strings will do- just make sure there's six of them, and i swear you will be my hero of all time, and my uncle will silk screen a t-shirt with your name and avi on the front and your siggy on the back.
promise.

What are they, £5, or $5?

Seriously, hobos can afford that.


I was just thinking, you must be homeless if you can't afford a set of strings. Even then, you could earn about $100 a day just begging.

Would you send me anything if I needed it really bad?

only if i had it. and as long as it wasn't something like a telecaster or a spleen or something.
and bumming from my parents/affording them on my own is NOT an option.
look, if you guys don't want to help a noob out, then you don't have too. it's a tall order, i know.
i'm not homeless, i'm 16 years old.

Stop begging. Scrape together some loose change until you have 5 bucks. Buy strings with that money. Simple.
Your opinion is just that, YOUR opinion. It doesn't make you right. It doesn't make you better. It doesn't make you god. Everyone has their own view and that view is neither right or wrong.

Ignorance destroys music.

Go steal 'em. It's SO easy. I steal my Bass Elixirs, those are gigantic and expensive and I got 'em out. Also, if you can't get 'em from a guitar store, go get some from Wal*Mart, they have some decent GHS strings.

I buy $12 Elixirs without a job or any help from my parents. Figure it out.

Also, I agree with Scott, steal them, you'd have to be retarded to get caught.

Sawed your strings? He probably sawed your guitar too, next thing you're gonna beg for is for someone to send you a guitar.

You're telling me! I have three sets of EB's on my desk that I can't use because they're the wrong gauge! XD

Go to your local guitar shop and tell them your willing to help out doing whatever they want all day in return for a set of strings, you'd also probably get in with the people thier if you were cool.

If this is the first place he went for a free set of strings, that's not likely.

They're all like $5 around here, every brand and type (except bass strings).

Well you spelled dineros wrong. Either you're not really mexican or you need to brush up on your spanish skills.

I honestly don't know if i should report this or not...

But seriously, just borrow like, $5 from a friend and buy some strings, pay em back later.

I'm sorry, but there is almost no way someone would actually send you strings for free.
Good try, but I'm calling BS on this.
