Totally correct. Shyboy is a b*tch for the bass as well.

But, you're learning... and I'm sure your bass teacher can square you away (hopefully).
Well you're cool.

My bass teacher helped a lot but I still might take it to a tech because the setup needs some adjustments still.

Now my Strat, THAT needs some work.

As in, I adjusted the truss rod for the reason you are SUPPOSED to adjust it and then I noticed that the action was too high. I didn't do it an insane amount either but I don't like to do anything like that because I'm scared I'll screw it up, which I think I did. When I go back to my mum's house la...

I did something stupid.

I needed to adjust the truss rod on my bass and so I did that but it really didn't help the action, which is currently too high for comfort and I'm afraid the truss rod's gonna like pop out of the back of the neck. :oops: Oh no! What do I do now?

Boston Tickets

Disclaimer: Mikey gave me permission to post this.

So through a misunderstanding, I ended up with 5 extra tickets to the Boston show and I don't really need them so I'm willing to sell them.

Interested? PM me.

Thanks.
You can give it a try. Remember that all EVO Experience ticketsin the USA are now UPGRADES - so you have to buy a regular ticket to the show also.

It seems very uncharacterstic of Steve, as his photos usually include a guitar in it (as his music / his band is the focus of most photos) but in this one his body is the focus. Why did he get this pic done? (and when?) A ...
