    You should wash your hands after eating those Cini-Mini's down at Burger King. It's the frosting.

    no, my strings are clean and my fingers clean and dry. seems like alot of friction. the room was unheated. very cool temp.
  6. If the room was cold and you didn't warm up, your hands might have been a little stiff. When you say you were getting hung up on the strings, do you mean you couldn't play as fast as you usually can? Did your hands hurt at all, or feel cramped?

    Dave, the room was cold. I had warmed up a bit, but that was about an hour before we played at soundcheck. I couldnt play fast at all, and my fingers, when I would go to pull the string up, would almost feel stuck to the string. Too much friction it seemed. It was like my hands were glued to the strings. Anyway, sorry for calling you a liberal idiot Dave. Politics bring out the worst in us all man. Peace.
  8. Weird, man. I can't explain the friction thing, unless you did in fact have cake icing on your hands.
    No worries about the politics thing.. I am a liberal all the time, and an idiot about half the time! I agree, if you want to stir it up, politics and religion are good ones. You should have seen Thanksgiving at my house.. my dad, the liberal college professor, debating my brother-in-law, the conservative lawyer, after we all put away an entire bottle of scotch! Fun, fun, fun.

    Are the strings new? I know that TI Jazz Flats are sticky as heck when you put them on.
