davewhite dropped off RK at my 'ouse yesterday morning. I'm not sure he recognised me in a suit but, nonethelsess, he handed her over then went on his merry way.
I didn't get the chance to take her out of the case til later in the day when I tried a little noodling. It didn't go well. My wife actually said "Is it supposed to sound like that?" and not in a complimentary way... so it was with a light heart that I put her (Red Kite, not my wife) in the boot of my car to take her down to Stafford where she's going to spend a couple of weeks with PistolPete .
He makes a good cup of coffee, does Pete, and he happily posed for the oblgatory handover photo:
He admitted that he's done a little bit of lapslide before - and showed me his Delta acoustic fitted with a nut riser. He then proceeded to noodle away. But properly. Like he knew what he was doing. Embarrassed, I made my excuses and left... We've arranged that I'll pick her back up from him when he heads north to play at the Nantwich Jazz and Blues Festival on April 20th. So I'll get to see him play live, too. Win Win
jangarrack: I finally traced the annoying intermittent buzz or rattle that suddenly developed on my Camps guitar....it was a button on my partly rolled up shirt sleeve. Fortunately, my feeling of relief trumps my feeling of foolishness.

ocarolan: That mirrors almost exactly my experience of the most annoying buzz I ever had to track down! Mine was a button on the shirt front. T-shirts rule....

martinrowe: You would think they would make musical instruments that could cater for these types of situations

walkingdecay: I knew a drummer who swore there was an annoying rattle coming from his snare. And he knew this how?

Akquarius: that's one of several reasons why Alexa has a house ban here :-)

walkingdecay: Astronauts have velcro on their flyholes, which not only prevents entrapment in zips, but in the ISS prevents static jolts to the genitals. I suppose that whether you approve of the latter effect or not depends on how old you are.

walkingdecay: A bad haircut from the realms of an evil witch. Even speaking at an anti-Brexit demo cannot redeem such a creature. You simply can't go anywhere these days. It's bad enough fearing to use the railways in case you run into Michael Portillo.

walkingdecay: Beatles: Made On Merseyside doc on iPlayer at the moment is rather good, if you ignore the strange Pete Best eulogy. (He had trouble playing anything other than fours, the "atom beat" was a London thing, not Best's creation, and so on).

ocarolan: I enjoyed that too!

walkingdecay: The picture on today's Bing homepage is of a rack of 45RPM vinyl singles, and it's torture. Sets your flipping fingers a-jerking and your treasure hunting eyes a-flicker without hope of release.
