On The Lighter Side…

Posted in FUNNIES... on May 14, 2010 by Connor

Several men were lost at sea floating around in a boat. Things were getting desperate so they thought they might ought to pray for some help.  They asked one old man in the boat if he would pray for them, and he replied he didn’t know much about it, but he would give it a try.  He thus started praying:

“Oh Lord, we’re starving down here. Please send us a barrel of potatoes!”

Pauses…  “and Lord, send us a barrel of corn!”

Pauses…  one more thing Lord, send us a barrel of pepper…

…no, wait a minute Lord. That’d be too much pepper!”

… walked into a bar

Posted in FUNNIES... on May 14, 2010 by Connor

A man walks into a bar wearing jumper cables around his neck and orders a beer.  The bar tender looks him over suspiciously and finally says “OK. I’ll give you the beer, but don’t try to start anything!”.

The Pocket Knife…

Posted in SOMEDAY YOU'RE GOING TO NEED THIS... on May 13, 2010 by Connor

If I had to pick  only one tool to have for the rest of my life, it would be a good pocket knife.

I gave both of my sons a  pocket knife when they were about 10 years old. I showed them how to sharpen it and explained what it was and what it wasn’t.  It’s a knife. That means it was made to cut things. It is not a screwdriver or pry bar.  It is not a weapon, but like many common things, it could serve as one if things got desperate.  A trash can lid is not a weapon, until you decide to use it as such.  Neither is a pen, but you could use it as such if you had a mind to.  A pocket knife is a tool, and just like most tools, you can hurt yourself or someone else with it if you are careless.  I have hurt myself many times with tools, but I didn’t try to have them classified as illegal.   You have to have and use some common sense with everything, whether it’s your credit card, the auto you drive, your sex life or what ever, and knives are no exception.

Setting Intonation for Electric Guitars

Posted in MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS... on May 5, 2010 by Connor
Intonation need not be some mysterious act of your guitar tech. True, it does help to have a good strobe costing several hundred dollars but if you are touring and do not have access to a good technician, you can set the intonation quiet close using a good low-cost personal electronic tuner. It probably won’t be exact, but it may be better than what you have, or as Lemony Snicket might say, “or maybe not”, depending upon your skill and understanding of what to do. It usually helps to know what causes a problem when correcting it, so I’ll begin by explaining the cause, and then proceed with how to correct it. Continue reading

Re-stringing Guitars

Posted in MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS... on May 5, 2010 by Connor

Restringing a guitar is something all guitarist should strive to learn. New strings will nearly always make your guitar sound much better than old ones. The exception would be changing to a gauge or type unsuitable for your instrument. Putting classical nylon strings on a steel string guitar will not produce a suitable sound as the steel string guitar is braced internally much stronger than classical guitars. Doing the reverse will very likely damage the classical guitar as they are not designed to sustain the high tension of steel strings. If you are not sure of what strings you should use on your guitar, ask a sales rep at your local music store and be sure to inform him or her what type of guitar you have. The brand name of your guitar is not as important to the sales people as the type of instrument you have, type being classical, steel string acoustic, electric, folk, etc. Continue reading
