Post So...It's muh BURTHDAY!!!!
Today I turn 19. It hardly feels like birthdays really mean anything anymore. When I was younger I used to be so happy that it was my birthday and this year I just wasn't really feeling anything. It's just another year of me getting older. I do feel somewhat happy though, I've had 19 years of almost perfect health and I shouldn't take that for granted. I guess I'm going to take this as a wake up call. I may be only 19. But it's now that I should be taking care of my body and my future and not wishing I had 19 more years from now. I totally just wrote this all on the spot but I felt like I wanted to let this out. Kind of like my own reflection.
Anyways, going out to eat with some friends today after work and then working on a script for a mystery theatre I've been writing with a few friends from my old drama club from highschool.
Thanks to any of those who read this and goodnight! :-D

Happy Birthday! I know what you mean about birthdays and age and stuff, just do whatever you want as long as its not too stupid (like battery). Sounds like you're doin good! (as if I have any gauge, my life experience could fit in a thimble) :laughy:

I had a great time last night. A few friends came over and we jammed a little, played some xbox, I got to eat for the first time at Cheddars and we watched horror flicks all night. As far as gifts go I got some cds and these:

And rubbery! :cool:
They work awesomely if you use a pick to play bass(which I do) I've started working on finger techniques(Which I should have done 3 years ago.) but these eliminate that "pick" noise.

Ah, that makes sense. I was trying to think of how you would play a guitar with those. I use .73mm picks mostly. And I'm an expert! (sarcasm face)

Yeah, I tried playing my fender strat with and wow...that was weird.
I learned the bass lines to Poker Face :shifty: with it which was cool. It definitely takes away the harsh sounds of a normal pick which is great if that's what you want.
What kind of guitar you got Rindr?

Pick technique can produce a nice edgy snarl, but make sure to keep up on your finger technique. Fingers are much more versatile and can produce a wider range of sounds - they can even sound almost exactly like a pick, if you dig in with a hard strike. However, you'll miss out on those dynamics if you never learn to play with your fingers. It's generally easy for a finger player to switch to a pick, but not vice-versa.

Wow. :eek:
That was awesome! Never really been a fan of them(never gave them a chance either) but that bass solo sounded sweet!

Yeah I just started working on my finger techniques a few months ago. F**king hard! I never should have started playing with a pick only. Ahh to be young and stupid. :shot:

What kind of guitar you got Rindr?


I started out with an Epiphone "Les Paul" Special II, which is still my main guitar. I got a Jackson on sale, but that's all it says on it and there was no box, so I'm not sure what to call it.

Umm... phone camera go!:

Rindr your guitar looks kinda like this one(but I can't seem to find it in red and with a HSS pickup set):

Yeah, that pretty much looks the same, but with the "shark fins" (I guess they're called) on the neck.

Most of the technical terms go over my head, I just liked the look and feel of it, and the sound isn't bad. Plus the price was great, it was like $179. I'm not being intentionally obtuse either, I just really don't know a lot about guitars.

And the atari sticker is from my old roommate's copy of UT3. I was like "must have!"
