You can't tell guitarists owt.

so fucking true. :lol:

i've not yet ever fallen out with bass players or singers, but i've left about 3 bands cos of guitarists. it's as if because i hit things at the back that i'm not allowed an opinion. man, you play to my beat.

They have different characteristics.
The one wots nearest the neck has a deep sound, the one in the middle a balanced sound and the one nearest the end of the guitar is the bridge pickup and has a trebly sound.
You can choose any combination of them by using the pickup selector.
The guitar also has separate tone controls so it gives you a huge variety of sounds.
It's a fabulous bit of design.
So, our guitarist has spent so much time listening to music at high volumes he's lost the ability to hear the higher frequencies.
The cunt.
So to compensate for this he boosts the treble as far as it will go.
The cunt.
Result: horrible screeching banshee wailing.
And being a guitarist you can't tell him owt because it sets off his PMT.


TBH a Strat is my least favourite of all the ‘major’ guitar sounds anyway, so I’m with you on all of this 100% bro.

Foreign cunts with no manners.
As soon as a hotel lift turns up, or bus, its time to dart into the fucker even if they were last to get there.

Russians, Spanish, German, French, etc, you name it and the cunts have never been taught any manners at all.
Not even please or thank you, and that's all ages.

Punctuation is lousy, as is yours, but the grammar is fine.

Just seen a bloke in my local wearing a half and half scarf for the FA Trophy semi final between Leyton Orient and Telford. Fuck me what a souvenir of such a magnificent occasion. He must really cherish seeing his longtime league team in a non-league semi final.

My new Spanish au pair (get her etc) just asked for the heating on IN APRIL.

I do hope this isn't a sign of things to come.

Figures. My experience from a variety of office environments is that the most nesh nationals are the Spanish, the Portuguese and, bizarrely, the Scots.
