    Let's have some fun here. Post a question that annoys you and the best 5-word answer.

    Rules: answer must be exactly 5 words. Don't intentionally bait anyone.

    I'll go first with a few:

    Q: Will I damage my cab by underpowering it?
    A: Myth. Don't worry about it.

    Q: How much is my such-and-such year Les Paul worth?
    A: Keep your job. Millions exist.

    Q: Are the best bass players black?
    A: Don't know. Ask Stu Hamm.

    Q: What's the best bass for praise and worship?
    A: Any that works, I guess.

    Let 'er rip guys. :D :D :D
