I love it too! You can't stop the urge to play no matter what the circumstances.

I thought it was pretty ordinary till she started rolling her hands around.

I wish she'd been smiling, but then, I wonder what her life is like.

Was a little pitchey for me ...
Not sure it was the right song choice
Could have used more Dumble as well, or perhaps even a Two Rock and a Klon. I'd be willing to bet that a Collings or an R9 would have stayed in tune better...:worried;)

So the description, "Retarded ..." didn't offend anyone? That says a lot.

Didn't notice it actually, which suprises me. I guess I just say the thread title and clicked into the in-line video. But in general, I try not to spend too much time being offended by stupid morons. If I did, I probably wouldn't be able to get out of bed in the morning.

Hmm, I didn't notice it either--I guess I got caught up on the word "lady", because I know he is a man. Can't imagine anyone would be so dumb to actually put that in the title, though. Geez.

On a trip to senegal about fifteen years ago, I heard the sounds of a guitar through a small PA somewhere. Decent strumming, and I thought, "hey, maybe I can show someone a thing or two" ( i was 22 and cocky! )

I wandered around until I found it and chatted the locals up a bit. They handed me the guitar, which was missing 2 strings and tuned to "I have no clue".

Apparently I was not able to show them anything!
Really good life lesson that day!
