Oh...LICK every connection!
I think I heard that wrong!
That must be where i got this limp from.
Heisenberg wasn't such a great bass player for most genres. When he was observed to get his finger on the correct string and fret at the right time, he had no way of knowing where his finger would go next. He got some paid avant-garde work until he nailed an E# at exactly 2'58 into John Cage's recording, causing an implosion.
The same thing happened to Andrew Ridgeley during the final Wham! studio session when he managed to hit an open A on the Stratocaster usually used to drip-dry George Michael's Y-fronts. The ensuing singularity yoinked Ridgeley to the boundaries of the known universe. George named their final single The Edge of Heaven in his honour. Andrew survives George; mostly on the royalties from Last Christmas which (accounting for inflation during the 14 billion year Paypal journey) allows him the pick of Ameglian Major Cow steak dinners.
While there may be some uncertainty as to whether Heisenberg was or was not a great bass player, certainly on principle you'd have to agree that on a molecular level Werner constantly made a quantum of consistently great dirt pedals...
D'addario are experimenting with strings on reels. Each reel contains 12 ft of string and is mounted in a cavity behind the pick guard. If a string dies, it's just a matter of release, pull, cut, lock and tune.
Too complicated for a guitar player...
My understanding is that they will have distance markers on them so that guitarists, don't use more string than is absolutely necessary.
Speaking of reels, didn't Jesus Jones originally write "Reel Reel Reel" as a fishing rod commercial jingle? And if so I'd like to know.
Yes, that is a fact, but sadly the fishing rod companies focus group could not get past "Jesus" "Selling" "fishing" equipment and said "why don't we all go away"
You are still asking a lot of the guitar player:
recognize the string is dead/broken,
6 steps is a lot for them to remember. And 1 and 6 are nearly impossible for guitar players.
Michael Lee Aday was given the nickname as a baby "Meatball" because he was rotund and a bit goofy. Later in life, he became a singer, but the nickname didn't fit as he had grown in height and girth. His family started calling him "Meatloaf"
They probably don't understand the last instruction, tune.
They pretend to remember 6 strings, but that's cheating, as the first and the sixth string both are E strings.
Upon his death he will be renamed "Carrion".
His estrangement from his family was well documented. Coincidentally his father said that very thing in a Rolling Stone interview. Kansas used the phrasing, but unfortunately misspelled the words, when they wrote Carry on our Wayward Son.
Toyota announced a massive recall of vehicles in the US citing intensely distracting overtones in their steering wheels.
Turns out there was a simple, 3 dollar solution.
Some say tubes do not color the sound of an amp. They are wrong!
Sometimes they loosen the low string (easier to remember)...What was that one again?...D'uh
They were told to remember Eat All Day Get Big Easy. Then the 7 string guitar became a thing, so a smart guy (a bassist) had to come up with something new. This became: Be Eating All Day Get Big Easy. They're still arguing about how to remember the tuning of 8 and 9 string guitars.
You can always tell which tube amps are transparent.
That is weightlifting advice, not musical advice.
