And today it´s my turn. wacko.gif My finger simply don´ want to move correctly. I can´t get over 80 bpm or so. (except from the solo in "For the Love of God" which is a lot legato ^^) And tomorrow I can´t play my lovely JEM because I´m sending it away to Cologne. It has to be repared (bridge adjustment and other stuff).
I hope it will pass soon. sad.gif

I wasw so excited about getting to play today, just now, after having been at Odense Stadium watching football. Then I came home, and there was this huge spider on my computer keyboard. I tried to kill it by smashing it, but god was it fast and it escaped me. I've never seen a thing so fast in my life - not a spider at least. It ran and hid it self and now I can't find the damn spider anymore to kill it. And I'm terrified of it! Hahaha... so now I'm not in the mood for playing the guitar anymore.


eheeh i hate insects too! But I can't make myself kill them...I just try to avoid encounters smile.gif hehehe

Learn to set it up yourself.
It's fun to do, and you don't have to send your *precious* away.

I´ve already tried to do it several times and I managed to get the bridge in the normal position. However, my *precious* detunes all the time when I use the whammy bar. And the whole where it goes in is a bit damaged (my little brother played with the whammy bar -.-). I hope it will be back this week. smile.gif

Another day, another power. I hope today I will play better than yesterday. wink.gif

Cheers

First you set action, then you set bridge paralell to body, then you balance springs so that high and low E are correct even though you start tune on either side - and last you do intonation.

That will give a good result smile.gif
