I think you might be "fretting out." Basically as you bend, the string just barely contacts one of the frets further up the neck and it keeps it from ringing out.

I would guess this.

Three things you could do: raise the action a little and see if the problem goes away. If that doesn't work, adjust the truss rod to give your neck more bow. If that still doesn't work, you will need to take it to a tech to have some fret work done.

Hopefully you can fix it yourself by adjusting the action or truss rod, because techs charge about $10 USD per fret in my area. Unless you have just the one fret that is messed up, most of the time you have to do at least 6 or 7 frets so that all the frets around the problem area are level with each other.

Can I use "defraud" by saying something like "he wanted to defraud the store of its goods" (referring to shoplifting), or is that an incorrect way to use this word? I know that when I think of fraud I'm be more thinking of things like insurance fraud and the like but I thought that "defraud" had a slightly less narrow meaning?

Your example seems to be a valid use of the word. Have you heard of this thing called Google?
I actually have a Teisco guitar that's remarkably similar to that one. It looks interesting, but I would say it's just about worthless.

I pre-ordered Hail to the King, and they haven't charged me for it yet. I don't think they charge you until they ship it, because Amazon does their pre-order guarantee thing where if the price drops between when you order it and when it comes out, they charge you the lesser price.

I'd say that's about right.

How is a raven like a writing desk?

Poe wrote on both.
Metallica, Iron Maiden, Iwrestledabearonce, Killswitch Engage. Just a sample of the many band shirts I wear.
Just my opinion, because I frequent craigslist quite a bit, and I don't normally see delays worth the materials they're made of for under $60-75. You might get lucky and snag a good one for cheap if you are patient.

Actually, I just did some maths. With the stuff I recommended, you should be able to afford a used delay pedal. My bad. I don't know about the Gibson care pack, though. I've never used it. Definitely not worth the price if you want to get delay pedal on your budget.
Strings: Ernie ball skinny top heavy bottom. Finger ease string lubricant. I can get a set of strings to last for months with that stuff. You'll also want to purchase some kind of cleaning cloth if you get that. I don't know of a decent delay that you can get with what you'll have left after that, though.

I have this one, and the only time I take it off my guitar is to change the strings. Works great
You can tune the first fret on each of the strings to DADGBE
Except that posts in the Pit don't count towards your score
Baseketball, Don't Be a Menace, Shutter Island, Reservoir Dogs, A Clockwork Orange, Pitch Black, Memento

I saw The Machinist on there as well. Rather interesting film

that game has changed, for worse. how many djent bands play arenas? none. but sadly im sure most of them will when the 80's people start dying off. kids wont know any better.

Because it's not popular that means it sucks? Right

Never played the Flashback, but I have a DL4 and love it. I don't know if I would like a pedal that complex without presets. It's fun to be able to screw around with the knobs on my own time, but on stage, presets are definitely useful.
I had a Morley Bad Horsie 2 for a while. I didn't really much care for it after I got an Ibanez Weeping Demon. If you like the sound of the KH more, I would say go for it, but I've never tried one before.
If you don't have guitar pro, download TuxGuitar (which is FREE and reads gp files), and use this:

That's the tab I used to learn the song, and I have a recording of me playing it in my profile. You can hear me play the tab and decide how accurate it is for yourself

I use this, but I've heard that the ISP Decimator is pretty much the go-to pedal if you have the money.
I have a few ToneCore modules, but my dock is so noisy it's unusable, and I need a new one. I don't really have a preference for stereo/mono.

I can get a brand new one from Line 6's website for $70, so I'm looking to spend a bit less than that. I can pay with PayPal. PM me with an offer.

Assume you fill up 3-4 times a week, and your car has a 10gallon tank. At an average gas price of $4/gallon, that's $6,240 to $8,320 a year for gas. I fill up 2-3 a week (also a 10gallon tank), therefore I pay $4,160 to $6,240 a year. Now, let's assume that every five years I have to buy a new battery pack (which is an unlikely stretch, but I'll humor you). That means I now pay between $23,800 to $34,200 for gas and replacing my battery over 5years. You, however, pay $31,200 to $41,600 over 5 years for just gas. Who's paying less in the end?

Try once every 10 days. I've NEVER paid $4 a gallon for gas, so your "average" is extremely high. Try getting YOUR facts straight

Also, I paid about 3,000 for my car. How much did you pay for yours?

When you achieve 50mpg in your gas guzzling non-hybrid, let me know. I regularly get 50mpg* in my Li-Ion battery Hybrid. I can drive a total of 3hours every day commuting and only fill up twice a week. So, yeah...let me know when you save that much money in your "gas guzzler".

Let me know when you have to spend 3 grand to replace your battery packs and when you have to take it to a dealership to get it maintained because local shops won't work on them.
