    I don't wonder about anything. If it upsets you when I slap

    That's not exactly what I said, but you keep on thinking that.

    And as for what I just said above, you talk shit when I said it changes the tone to change a pick.

    But Jeff says the same damn thing, and you say:

    > Having both of the above allows you to attack the guitar

    harder without wilting. That in itself changes the tone...

    >*That's true.* I notice a much bigger tonal difference on an

    acoustic guitar, especially with pick thickness, but on an
    electric I play what's most comfortable and what won't
    break. Fender Heavy picks and D'Addario 10's or 11's.


    Instead of worrying about me so much and making an ass out of yourself with everything you say, why not go plug in your electric
    guitar and try to figure out why your index finger is so limited in it's ability to bend strings.

    It takes a long time to get that vibrato just right so you better start today, son.

    And go on a diet, for crying out loud.

    Yeah... It has those different degrees of flimsy... It goes back to the same
    position every time. I think I just got used to the Tortex bending and
    staying somewhat. Somehow I feel I can pick better with them slightly bent.
    more control or something.

    "Your exact words were "Folks...this pedal takes away just about all
    dynamics between guitar and amp. In fact, with the level up, it even
    distorts! What the fugg? Can't have that coming between me and my
    Mesa/Boogie."

    IOW, it reduced your dynamics so you shitcanned it. Idiot.

    That's true, I do notice a much bigger difference with acoustic guitars. I
    never implied that a pick change wouldn't affect tone, so what's your
    point?

    I plugged in and played for 4 hours last night, didn't seem to have any
    troubles with my index finger or my vibrato. Maybe the problem only occurs
    when bedroom wanking?



    > It takes a long time to get that vibrato just right so you better start

    It takes a long time to learn toplay even the simplest cover song, so you
    better start today, son.

    I knew when I bought it that a compressor pedal reduces the dynamic range..I just didn't expect to have the dynamics taken all away
    from my guitar and amp's interaction....but I learned and quick.

    So again, YOU look like the idiot because you are taking what I said out of context and talking shit without regard to how dumb you
    look do so.

    > I plugged in and played for 4 hours last night, didn't seem to have any troubles with my index finger or my vibrato.


    I don't believe you, fat boy...you already admitted you didn't understand how someone can use their index finger to do bends, and
    everyone saw you write and admit it.

    LOL!

    >Maybe the problem only occurs when bedroom wanking?


    Hell, I don't know what your problem is.

    > It takes a long time to learn toplay even the simplest cover song


    Well, when are you going to be able to do so without "honking" in the middle of a song?

    You are terrible and everyone here knows it from your clips, so no need to worry about me at all, fat boy.

    Everyone here knows that it is *YOU* that can't "play even the simplest cover song."

    You bought a compressor. Yoo stated that your amp was very dynamic and
    that you didn't want anything reducing your dynamics. What were you
    expecting the compressor to do for your sound?



    > So again, YOU look like the idiot because you are taking what I said out

    Yes, you're right. You bought a compressor and then shitcanned it because
    it reduced your dynamics, but I look dumb. Whatever.

    I said, and still don't know, that I didn't know what kind of blues bends
    you were doing with your index finger. And you were never able to tell me,
    so I guess you don't know either.



    > LOL!


    Har de har.



    > >Maybe the problem only occurs when bedroom wanking?

    >

    I'm sane. That makes me seem strange to you. Ever notice how you seem to
    have a problem with nearly *everyone* that you come into contact with?
    Son, it's not that you're marching in step and the entire platoon is off,
    it's that you're not in step with the platoon. Maybe someday you'll get
    it.



    > > It takes a long time to learn toplay even the simplest cover song

    >
    > Well, when are you going to be able to do so without "honking" in the

    middle of a song?

    I never "honked". If it had been me I would gladly own up to it, but it wa
    s the other guitarists who make the "bike horn" sound. It's no big deal,
    just one (of many) clams in a live recording, but you obsess over it. I'd
    venture to say that most of us hit several clams per night when we're
    playing live (I know I do). And most of us don't keep score. It's just
    more minutia for you to obsess over, but for real guitar players the clam
    is over the instant it's played and the song goes on.



    > You are terrible and everyone here knows it from your clips, so no need

    to worry about me at all, fat boy.

    Yet I'm better than you, so when you insult my playing you are insulting
    your playing even more. Think about it, hard.



    > Everyone here knows that it is *YOU* that can't "play even the simplest

    cover song."

    Does everyone here know that? Some people hear have heard me play, I guess
    they could corroborate your statement for you, but I don't hear them coming
    forward so I'll have to assume that you are, once again, wrong.

    I'm green with envy. I've been looking for one of those for
    years, and the only one I've yet seen was not for sale. Someone
    posted one on ebay a while back, with a buy-now price of $850.
    Imagine that! The ad was cancelled the same day, so I think
    someone made him a direct offer.
