If you invented a time machine to go back and kill Hitler, would you still have a reason to invent a time machine if there was no Hitler? Wouldn't that create a paradox?

This is still just one thread. I am always here to answer your questions. The thread can be bumped at any time. And if I do not see it...bump it again or PM me!

If it fades back...then I will probably bump it again if

1 - It has been enough time that people may have new questions
2 - I, for some reason remember it, like this time
2 - I am at least over 7000 at that time (but if I miss 7000 or do something else with 7000 it will have to wait until 7500, 8000, 9000, or 10,000...so don't hold your breath and just bump it if you want...I will only do it if it has been sometime and I approach some significant number.)

Do you know who Jonathan Winters was?

How about Annette Funicello?

If you had the capacity to invent a time machine, you would totally still do it even without the motivation of killing Hitler.

Why? Because you have a history report due and you are going to fail if you don't pass it and the Wyld Stallyns will never be successful.

In any event...

Both were a bit before my time, but I am aware of them due to their recent deaths. I vaguely remember seeing winters in a couple of things. Not so much Funicello

We can try climbing it together, but if someone can climb Everest, I assume we can take a hill.

Fender Mustang, partially because they are short-scale.


I do recommend a short scale bass for a kid. I remember my first bass was a gorgeous Gibson Flying V short scale with a blue marble looking finish. I'm such an ass for selling it when moving to a normally sized Fender Jazz. :(

One thing I always recommend and especially on bass since the strings are so thick is a super low string action. I set mine on all basses to 1mm at the highest fret (20th or 24th, whatever bass it is --- measured between top of fret and bottom of string), across all strings, and if I can get them to basically lay flat on the frets, that's even better. That helps tremendously with my technique and the shredder speed I go for. On many cheap basses you can't really do that, but you can take it to a music store and ask for a good luthier and he will do some magic on it and get the strings really low. I don't use hand muscles when playing at all, which increases my ease and of course the speed, not to mention protects from tendon damage. I gently lay my finger down on the fret, that's all. Maybe not as important for players who stick with simple lines (and prefer higher action), but if you want technique and ease, then a good setup is important. It's nice when you don't have to worry about fighting the strings and just concentrate on playing.

If you want a bunch of pros to help you more, go ask here. A lot of nice people and always willing to help.

I guess you can make a thread in the bass section or search if a topic already exists.

How about this little bass? You pretty much can never go wrong with a Fender as even the cheaper ones from Mexico play well. I would take it to a music store when it comes and have a guy set it up well so your kids feels comfortable on it.

Again, if you are actually in a serious situation there and it is about drugs...I am not the guy to ask. Someone with more EXPERIENCE (a professional) or "experience" ( :scared: ) would help a lot more. Checking symptoms on something like webmd may help as well. Those were just very general, short articles

Yeah, just the thing with the eyes is the single biggest factor that I only saw people who are high do and I never saw her like that before. Saw her eyes bug out like that several times already with increased hyperactivity in her overall behavior/movement. She was definitely on something that would help her get through her problem - and a few times since. Second issue - and something the article probably got wrong - is the sexual impact, as from what I'm reading elsewhere and talking to some people it offen affects girls (not guys) the way she would need it to, to do what she had to. A lot of things seem to fit. Well, thanks for trying to help.

We can check you in to the Eagle's nest next time if that would help.

But really, their prices are just crazy...anyone would get stabby. The people in the store have a large part in your anger...so it depends on your location...but double the price and make it 50 cents off...crazy. Shop at Costco. I love that place. It makes me go from happy to "ooh free kids yogurt samples!"

McCartney. Never huge into the Beatles and he has done a lot on his own...bit of an unfair fight, however.
