I’m sure we would all like the story to be over soon. I have to reveal that this is not going to be the case.
I don’t know exactly how long or even if before the effects of COVID-19 recede into the general morass of life’s other minor vicissitudes, but sorry, it’s not going to be in time for those lavish summer holidays in 2021, for those people who are even lucky enough to afford that luxury.
I’d been feeling something was not right about the nut on that acoustic for quite some time. In the past I’d tried to adjust it myself, with … “some improvement”, but the usual sweet spot of the acoustic guitar — chords near the nut — was not feeling so sweet.
So, the previous nut may have been a little too high, and it’s possible the string slots were not cut (by me) so as to have the correct string length.
Net result? A pretty serious disagreement between the open strings and the pitches of notes when fretting lower frets.
So back in early 2020, when suddenly presented with a yawning vista of time at home stretching before me, I had a vague idea to get completely Swole while in lockdown. The tattoos would just have to wait ’til after.
That didn’t work out so well, despite months of confinement, although I did manage to avoid the COVID-19 “COVID 19 pounds".
It turns out “getting back into the best shape of your life” is harder than it sounds when you say it in your head.
Hence, here’s my heartfelt thanks to Boris and his “government of all the talentless”.
Previous Messaging to turkeys has been unclear . We acknowledge that, and hands up, it was not helpful. The owner — turkey relationship has suffered and opportunities for arrangements of mutual benefit have gone sour as a consequence.
We’re sorry, and we aim to address that.
In the old story this proposition could be summed up thus:
"We think turkeys should vote for our proposed unspecified winter festival (that may include sumptuous meat based feasts and later, sandwhiches)”
I know: too long, too vague — “what’s in it for me” etc. etc. gobble, turkeys may well say.
Nevertheless, many turkeys…
TL;DR; position to a first approximation affects volume.
Nevertheless: one of the best reasons is simply to get the magnetic field from the pickup fully covering all six strings.
Oddly enough: the stock pickup for this guitar does not really have the best width for this bridge, so this arrangement should be an improvement.
Person. blah blah about me ... WAIT CLIMATE CANCER WE CAN BEAT IT PEOPLE ... all opinions my own
