Are the Sharpies for autographs? I certainly don't need those
I find it curious that that condom says "Latex Male Condom". Are there any other kind? Perhaps with the 50 or so genders we have now I am out of touch.
A formative book for me as well....especially the section on chord subs...
Additionally, this helped unlock the fretboard for me...:
I was surprised no one got to it before me.
Bridge height screws for Fender type bridges. You just have to determine which lengths from ~1/4"
and up. It might be best to buy both the SAE and metrics as it is hard to tell which unless it is a
vintage saddle. Some newer models have a #4-48 thread. Fender bass ones are a different thread
A quick look at Stewmac indicated that precision straightedges are actually a little more than $20. So, never mind.
I keep spare strings in every guitar case. Because a broken string can disable you completely.
Yes. There are female condoms and non-latex condoms for those that are allergic to latex.
A strobe tuner of some sort.
These are cheap enough to keep a spare and a spare spare.
Like tools, good enough and on hand is FAR better than having a single top of the line tool at home when you need one elsewhere.
Yes, THIS! Cheap tools suck.
Not just lighter but cheaper, almost pot-metal, material.
You could try to break old Craftsman tools, but the tool steel just wouldn't give in. The modern stuff will snap if you abuse it the way you could with the old stuff.
Second/third the Guitar Handbook (when are we getting a new edition?!) and Fretboard Logic. The latter is rather quirky in presentation, but the CAGED outline is the best I’ve come across in print.
I also find this little tool handy:
About 9 dollars on Reverb/Amazon, and is useful for more than just checking your action.
Because guitar players have bad breath?
I still have my Craftsman tool set from 1974, such a great xmas gift. Thanks Dad.....
Until I got that book, "Neapolitan" was ice cream, not a scale, "diminished" was how you felt when she said "no" to going out Friday night, and a schematic was a caper we wanted to pull off Saturday night.
Amen on the pre-Internet days. It was my bible for a few years, between my first guitar classes and later, private lessons. My original copy burned up in a fire back in 02, but about 4 years ago I got the updated blue-cover edition, just to have around as a reference. Denyer's work is that good.
