hahahah... that sounds kind of familiar... like...
Her: "What can i do to help?" ...
me: "you see all those wing nuts on the bottoms of the cymbal stands? start by opening all them and open the legs on the stands..."
then i look over and she's loosening up all sort of wing nuts that have nothing to do with the legs...
I appreciated her help but i can say i really don't like other people moving my stuff around because some of it is fragile or if the wrong wing nuts get turned then all the stands are not in the right position...
