I won't be losing any sleep over it!

Edit - perhaps a little harsh, i'm not that kind of guy. However you just basically said you'd find it funny if it was directed at someone else, so it's pretty true.
Actually saying that i'd normally find it funny against me. But at this point, with this discussion behind, with all said...not so much. Came out as a cheapshot.

But, like said:

Putting some tape, using medical gloves, whatnot when practising doesn't hurt and keeps your fingers in better shape for longer. And as we could take from Aoamis posts, keeps the distortion away in live playing too.

Here's a few tips for you young Sparx

1) Learn your scales, particularly the pentatonic minor. Once you know this up the ass in all positions you will be able to improvise like a beast and come up with your own solos.

2) Jam as much as possible with other musicians. I play mainly blues but i go out of my way to play with jazz guitarists as it really keeps me on my game, nothing improves your musicianship more than playing with others.

3) Use a decent string gauge. I personally use .13s although this is a little excessive (i just like the sustain i get from the bends). I would reccoment 11s, might hurt at first but it will pay off in the long run.

Will post a few more later on when i finish revising.

This from a guy on vacation from school? :p
I'm a teenager - it's my job to waste mornings doing fuck all but listening to music and playing computer games.

If we didn't - we'd take all your jobs! ;)

Well i can quite confidently say the fingers on my left hand are fuxed. They have absolutely no feeling and have extra thick skin. I view this as a good thing however, they used to absolutely kill when i went for the big Albert King style bends. :(

I wouldn't class myself as an adult just yet - the responsibilities aren't all there.

I just object to the devaluing of opinion due to a younger age - when often I know just as much about something as the next random Joe or Billy ^^.

Yea that pisses me off too. It comes down to some people valuing life experience over everything, when in alot of subjects just being well read is as or more useful.

And yet you dismiss many of my points o a simple "you just argue to argue" point, which isnt based on anything else but hearsay ;)
