How sweet are the tears of the losers? Pretty sweet! Tastes like victory! What I always find interesting is the desperate need to find hypocrisy in the "other side" as if that would somehow justify bad things from "their side". Most of the time the examples used are false equivalents, but even if t...

Re: U.S. politics thread and Joe Biden-the Ronan O'Gara of U.S. Presidents

Let’s be honest, that Neckbeard who lost his job because he was helping out with a bit of the old sedition in his spare time - while wearing his work ID - probably typifies the far-right movement and deserved to get fired from a cannon into the sun, never mind being fired from his job.

The sensible left welcomes and encourages input and comments from our political counterparts. We look forward to the perspective and insight offered by the kind of dribbling Neckbeard halfwits who thought that Trump was a good idea.

Very good post, A5... spot on about strength and applying too much pressure - and only using the very tips... a light touch is best but if your fingertips are not yet calloused enough to transfer pressure effectively, more pressure will be required.

This is what I’m talking about! You need to build up strength in micro-motions. Lifting heavy weights is completely different to applying pressure rapidly and accurately through your fingers. Place your index finger on the lowest/thickest string on the 3rd fret and play that note. Now put your middl...
