Anyone remember that Inspector Gadget Cartoon?

    I was noodling around the other night and decided to try picking with a Miraculous Medal. I thought it sounded cool and want to try it out while I'm plugged into my amp.

    But,

    When I was little I used to watch the Inspector Gadget cartoon on Saturday mornings and the one scene the is forever scarred on my memory is when the inspector tries to play an electric guitar and graphically electrocutes himself. I'm not kidding when I say I wouldn't go within a yard of an electric guitar until I was 14.

    That won't possibly happen right? I mean I'll be properly grounded, not made of metal and most importantly not in a cartoon.

    Right??

    We used to sing along with the theme song as "Doo doo doo doo do, inspect her gadget, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo!" and crack ourselves up.

    I saw that episode. It won't happen unless you're barefoot standing on wet ground.

    There was an all-girl punk band called Inspect Her Gadget a while back (no idea if they're still active). I remember them being on the bill at a Warped Tour date several years ago.

    Also I play the Inspector Gadget theme/melody on bass all the time... always gets a reaction.

    Look at what happened to keith relf of the yardbirds. Nuff said :)
     
  13. Well back in the olden days, things weren't always grounded so well. Nowadays it's mostly different. Mostly.
     
  14. Hell yeah! The Claw was the sh*t!

    if anyone cares, I didn't electrocute myself! Also discovered my medal is a attracted to my pick ups; cue me spending too much time trying to figure out if that messes with the sound of my bass.
