  1. Thank you for giving an opinion, and not a link. Seriously, the reason people ask questions here and not in their search bar is for a personal response.

    And with my little diatribe over with; Were they atleast tuning stable? I like how rigid it is. I usually just want a tiny bit of wobble. Kind of like the intro to I'm Your Captain by Grand Funk.

    I can't speak for the tuning stability on a Bigsby just for the fact that I didn't use it long enough to notice any of that. There's another member here that posted in the Jaguar thread with pics of his Jaguar with a Bigsby. I think you should PM him to find out about that since he actually uses Bigsby trems, and can speak for everything that's good or bad about them.

    The only thing I can say that might help is that on the trem I have on my jaguar I have to pull up on the whammy bar just a little to get it back in tune. I'll post a pic of it so you can see what whammy I have.


    It has the same spring that you would find on a Jag/Jazzmaster or a Bigsby, but it's a lot looser. If I push down on it then I have to pull it back so it's slightly above where it was before, and let the pressure from the strings pull it back. It's probably not exactly like a Bigsby as far as that goes, but it's the best I can do to offer advice.

    I'll go check that thread really quick, and edit the users name into this post.

    His name is HNB. Hope this is helpful. :)

  2. Don't be. if anything in here helped you it was worth it. This has been going on for a while. This has 0 to do with you. All i am concerned with is that you got the answer(s) you needed. Now sing your heart out!

    You seriously put kurt as your avatar? that is so funny...I'll warn you when the cool kids come back so you can change it! FTW

    I did that specifically for you, sweetheart.<3

  3. My point is that you shouldn't be telling people to do things that will hurt them to give their voice that sound. I don't even believe that cigarettes give everyone that raspy voice. Frank Sinatra smoked and he didn't have a raspy voice at all, Freddie Mercury smoked and his voice wasn't raspy.

    If the TS starts smoking then if he get's heavy enough with it then he'll open himself up to loads of problems like lung cancer, emphysema, and just impaired breathing in general. That's not the way to give yourself the sound you want.

  4. By closing your throat up like Kurt did you're going to end up #### your throat up. I used to do that where I would tighten up my throat, and I ended up not being able to sing for days afterwords.

    Also, I can't believe you just told someone that you want to smoke to get that raspy voice. That's the dumbest advice you could ever give to someone. I am a smoker, but I would never tell an aspiring singer to smoke to make their voice rougher.

  5. seriously? irl..if that means in real life then you have no idea. Yeah now it's popular in this forum to like nirvana, so here you are, a fan. Do you think a fan would say how great it is that kurt blew his head off? a fan wouldn't go there. If that is a joke then that is some low class ####. I hope you never become a fan of mine. I doubt i constantly harass you, but the things you've said make me dis-like you strongly. You certainly wouldn't make fun of kurt's situation in front of me, so why do it here. I'm not giving you a pass just because you are stupid and a follower with no spine. You bashed people in this forum along with everyone else until i called you on it. You ruthlessly bashed and harassed and bashed and teased anyone who came in this forum that was a nirvana fan. Did you not? I can pull the threads where you mother####ers ganged up on me for defending kurt like a pack of dogs. I stood alone as a fan and defended someone who has done so much not just for music but for human rights, and i took it like a man and gave it back to you. You can't run off at the mouth when you got somebody to back you up and then flip when they are gone and think it's all good. It ain't. You don't know ####.

    btw, don't go irl with me silly, i'm a beast. ask somebody! ftw...

    back to singing please, stay on topic please. there was nothing in your post about singing.

    I'll just PM you so we can continue this. Try to be mature about it than you were last time.

  6. I'm wondering about the mean 90 to be specific. I was wondering if anyone has tried it, and how it sounds compared to a real deal P90. According to their website the mean 90 is closer to the P90 than the dream 90 is, so I think I'm pretty much set on that one.

    Sorry, but I started this in the wrong forum by accident, so I decided to post it up in here so I could get some input.

  7. Dude, don't even start this bull#### again. I'm offering advice, and telling her the way I do it to try to help.

    Also, how did I insult Johnny Cash? I'm seriously confused about this, because I don't recall saying one bad thing about him. I think you're just looking for a reason to start ####.

    EDIT: You also don't have a clue about what you're saying. "Hot air" has nothing to do with singing. Ask anyone that knows anything about singing and they will tell you basically what I told TS.

  8. This isn't english class dip####. His writing doesn't need to be perfectly correct. Go be an #### somewhere else.

    Well, it would be nice if TS at least made it readable. He doesn't need to be perfect, but he could at least try to use the language in a way that gets his point across.

  9. The glove idea is a good one I think.

    Other than that, I'd just suggest experimenting and trial-and-error.

    I did that when I still had my glass slide. What's funny is that the glass ones are the only ones that I've ever had an issue with. Brass seems to fit perfect on me, and it's brighter sound works really well through my amp.

    I don't know how helpful I would actually be as far as actual technique goes since most of my slide stuff is styled after the way Blixa Bargeld plays.

  10. I would recommend going on ultimate-guitar.com, and looking up the tabs for the songs you want to learn. You should also go into the lessons section, and maybe create an account so you can ask for help in the technique forum.

    As for Nirvana, you can't really pick a bad song to learn from them if you're just starting out. All of the songs are pretty simple, and they're great for beginners. Same goes for White stripes in my opinion. I can't say much about Modest mouse since I don't listen to them, but as for White stripes, and Nirvana you should be able to learn easily.

    If you need any more help with anything, create your account and send me a PM with any questions. I have the same name on there, and I'll be glad to help.:)

  11. Makes sense to me. :) I wish I could play 4-5 hours a day. Will have to wait until both kids are potty trained and less dependant.

    I just pick it up whenever I have some spare time, and I also have a fucked up sleep schedule, so I have quite a bit of time on my hands. I normally only sleep about 4 hours a night, so I have roughly 20 hours to fit that in.

  12. I suppose that is true. :) I just don't play very often because my kids are too little for me to get much time away from them when I am home.

    Well if you don't play much then your strings shouldn't be that dirty. You should be fine just wiping the fretboard down with strings on. I play normally 4-5 hours a day so my strings get kind of dirty, so it would kind of defeat the point as I said above.

  13. Me too. Do people clean the boards without changing the strings? (Just get 'em loose and wipe the board down?) I can't imagine putting lemon oil on without changing the strings and I don't like to buy strings that often.

    I've done that once or twice before, and I think it kind of defeats the point of cleaning your fretboard. The good thing for me is that strings normally last 3-4 months, so my string changing schedule lines up perfectly with my cleaning schedule.
