    crazy because i had to play a song without the E string

    cool because everybody now knows me as the bassist who broke an E string and still finished the song

    You have loooooooooong fingernail beds, sir.
  15. Yeah ... ha ha! whats with those fingernails Mister? But that busted 'E' is quite the story to keep passing on to those who would care and understand.. I seriously thought such a thing would be almost impossible to happen due to the inherant strength of that string.
  16. I broke the E string at rehearsal once...it's not fun transposing an octave up, and doesn't sound to great through an octave down

    I broke a B and an A on the same song and finished the set (2 more songs). It was brutal, we were playing some avant jazzy stuff with lines and all, a real brain bender.
  18. Looking at that picture actually feels like your getting punched in the stomach. It just gives me that "oh crap....." feeling.

    If this is the craziest thing that has happened to you I would recommend sex on a chair lift.
