so i was playing in the Pep Band for my school last night. and usually the rythym section does some stuff on its own. We do stuff like back in black, brick house, some hendrix, beatles, james brown, ect. you know, stuff that gets the crowd dancing. anyway, we were playing "play that funky music" and i was popping away on my G string (no pun intended there) and sudddenly, it just snapped off. i think our guitarists eyes went as big as dinner plates when it happened. apparently, these strings were pretty old (but they sounded so good) and the wrapping had just gotten thin, and broke. they were Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkys, btw. so i had to sprint down to the orchestra room (about 400 meters round trip) and get the schools jazz bass. anyway, i wanted to share this amusing story, and ask if anybody has had this happen to them.
