Total Watts

  1. One must confess to being something of a plenk spenker one's self ahwah-hwah-hwah.
  2. Since the advent of global plague, I've played a grand total of one gig, 3 weeks ago. We had to end on the always...erm...enjoyable...All Right Now (mostly 'cos SuperScrote DJ MC knobhead was already pretending we were his support act, but I digress...) Afterwards two blokes wander up and tell me how they were dead impressed with that Free song and that I played it so like the original it was like having the LP on. I took the compliment and forced down the urge to scream 'that's all very nice, 'cos I spent the last third of the song playing SMOKE ON THE FU**IN' WATER, YOU DEAF ****S!!!!' That would be bad form, I assume. In any given performance the number of people who could care less about bass is one. That's a proven scientific fact, they did tests at CERN.
  3. Mix Prevention Officer seems to fit the ones I know.
  4. Well there's a solution without a problem. Just wrap some 1200 grit round a plug and get on with your day!
  5. As I usually play with a cymbal stand wedged up me chute while being repeatedly stabbed in the right armpit by a Les Paul headstock you know what you can do with all that smilin' and gaddin' about, quite frankly.
  6. Careful...they'll be wanting the vote next!
  7. On the plus side, that's fantastic double bass technique!
  8. Should anyone else need a nudge on blank boards, they feck guitarists right off!
  9. I have a Korg Pitchclip living on the bridge of my EUB, does a great job.
  10. So wait...Yamaha dream up a price-fixing scam with GAK, shop them for it, and get off with nary a slap? Nice going, Yamaha!
  11. If there's a screw (usually an allen head) on the bottom end of the bit you turn, then it's more than likely not reversible, if it looks like a mushroom shape it might be. The only way to tell is to pull one to bits and find out, really. Edit: I have an SR5 (around 99/00 build) and they look like they should be switchable - the end of the shaft is machined flat just to make me look daft after writing the above! It had strings not long ago, so I've no plans to mess with it yet.
