Just re-united with an old band from years past, and suffice to say there is no following, yet. As with the case in most originals bands, you gotta start somewhere. Definitely don't mind supporting other local bands, either.Very disturbing. I'm talking about the fact that you're weren't in the headlining band Dr. Fatso. Like, what's up with that? It must have been Motorhead or somebody like that after you guys, right?
Man, it was worse. I condensed a few minutes of him standing there doing something to the string and trying to mime to the audience that he might have a guitar problem. It was literally the worst thing I've seen done on stage. All could have been avoided by having a backup guitar in wait. Instead, he brought two guitars and neither could back the other up in his mind anyway. He had a 7 string, and a 12 string electric.Did the guy actually whip out a bow and literally fiddle with the string? I thought you needed 2 strings to fiddle. You're an ass.
This sounds a bit like a fetish that I'm not sure I share. I think we've all been up there once or twice while a stringed-instrument player did something embarrassing. You move on. Better than making a bigger deal out of a big fuck up.What is needed is a sure fire method to correct the problem, for the greater good. Like maybe an electric shock sent through the strings when the volume is up and the tuner is on.
In the past, I've wondered about perhaps something like an electric guitar with something akin to "auto-tune" for voice, wherein if a string starts to become out of tune, the system would automatically adjust the tone of the resulting note from what's played. I'm really not sure about all the related implications or issues that might arise, but I liked the idea back when I played more guitar.Guitar manufacturers could eliminate this problem altogether and incorporate a "tuner detector circuit" that automatically disables the volume when a tuner is detected. For the greater good. The needs of the many outweigh the ignorance of the few.
Just one. "Pizza".Thoughts Fatso?
