    i'm not sure. I didn't even fret it! I was strumming hard on the A D G strings with a pick, and it suddenly came undone at the bridge

    here's photographic evidence that i broke a string! in the first picture, you can see a guy from the crew helping me unwind the broken E string from the headstock (because it was flapping over my other strings). in the second photo you can see it over my back while i quickly change my EQ a little, and in the third picture you see me soldiering forth =) You can see too that in my second picture my strap is now white- somebody threw it to me from the crowd! =o

    I actually dig the music a lot. Nice bass tone, evident through a crappy recording. Is that a SansAmp that you're fiddling with in the second picture?
  8. i like your tone, very ballsy, your photographer is much better than your camera man by the way

    WHAT IS UP WITH YOUR FINGERNAILS? I've never seen fingernails that long! Very unique. I totally dig your bass playing cus you have the same problem I do: we're both so tall our instruments look like little kids toys!

    It happens to the best of them. Eric Clapton's guitar strap broke live on stage while they were filming The Last Waltz.

    I always break E and A strings since I hardly ever venture off them.
