Re: Guitar Picks, How Something Small Can Carry A Lot of Wei

It's called "viral marketing." Pretty harmless. Nothing's wrong with the V-Pick and I think some folks on here would really like one, but it's not the reinvention of the plectrum.

Re: I'm in the hospital and not working

ANY cat or human bite on the hand is especially dangerous in terms of getting infected. Nasty mouth flora in both cases.

Re: I'm in the hospital and not working

I did feel teeth scrape bone, and could have gotten the flexor tendon punctured. But I got over it.

Re: Guitar Picks, How Something Small Can Carry A Lot of Wei

I've got a V-Pick. It's a nice pick, just a very stiff hard plastic one you can see through. If you like the feel of a stiff hard one, it's for you.

Re: I'm in the hospital and not working

OUCH! I went through a badly infected cat bite in my finger when I had to put poor old Cally down a year and a half ago. (She was choking from a throat tumor.) I held her while the injection was given, and she bit my finger. Certainly can't blame her. It didn't seem to involve a joint, and I went wi...

Re: Advice for a guitar that bites!

Semihollowbodies can actually be played in a pretty loud environment with a good bit of gain. They have a solid block of wood in the middle that the pickups are mounted in. The top and back are thick plywood and don't resonate like an acoustic guitar top. The hollow "wings" are more for looks than s...

Re: Good News/Bad News situation

I have a friend who now lives in Ohio who's a special needs teacher in a high school. He's a longtime blues player, guitar and harp, who makes up everything as he goes and calls it "Spontobeat." He uses his music to connect with the kids, and has had some real success with that. A year or two ago on...

Re: Headstock Vibrato

Hmm. Bending down the way Blue Jay mentions is the only way I've seen and done it. Pushing against the back of the neck and the upper bout of the body. The truss rod didn't prevent it.

Re: Headstock Vibrato

I assumed that was what we were talking about, levering the neck against the guitar body.

Re: Advice for a guitar that bites!

If you're serious about wanting to sound like a sitar, have you looked into this? http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Rogue-STR1-Pro-Electric-Sitar-Guitar?sku=519273 Got one here. It's a unique sound, all right! The weird sitar buzz tone is from having the strings lie at low tension across a ...

Re: Headstock Vibrato

Somebody on one of the guitar boards I've hung out on said he was doing that on an old Danelectro and it just sort of blew up. Completely broke the body and collapsed. I've done it, but I don't think it's to be recommended.
