Tinnitus. I've been a rock guitarist for 35+years. Always tinnitus.

I have this too! My audiologist doesn’t think it came from my years of playing though. My hearing loss frequencies don’t match up with electric guitar amp ranges. It’s hereditary for me. My Dad had it.

Watched St.Elmo's Fire last night for the first time and while the story was completely stupid and bizarre, this song was tight.

I heard this was used by Netflix's The Crown. I dunno what effect pedal is used for the guitar, echo? But it's unforgettable.

Yea, I have no idea and I've been playing guitar for over twenty years (99% of it has been acoustic though). 

Speaking of me playing, here's a cover I did in March of Babyshambles' "A'rebours." Cool song IMO.

 

I definitely paid the price for recording this. Left shoulder hurt for like three weeks straight after, but it was worth it. I haven't played any guitar since, but PT has been promising this past week or so. So we'll see! Fingers crossed.

Wow! That was really good. Hope your shoulder heals. Yeah, musical instruments, a lot of them do a number on your body. It could have been worse and you played double bass, lol (heard that kills your wrist).

Yea I had an MRI last week and it came back clean. Shoulder still hurts though even though I had surgery June 27th, 2019 (but who's counting?).

But Babyshambles are a cool band. Not for everyone, perhaps an acquired taste, but they're not without their charm. Here's "Maybelline" to keep this on topic haha. 

Thanks for checking out the cover though, I appreciate it. It's fun to record something every now and then. 

 

Random trivia: that cover art on Maybelline was done by Damien Hirst.

While this isn’t music, for the past month, I’ve been listening to series of audiobooks written by Vince Flynn called the “Mitch Rapp series.”  Currently on book #17 (I think I have one more to go). It’s about a fictional  CIA agent and his “adventures.”  I’m not much of a reader, but with a 45min commute to & from work, it’s been a great way to pass the time. Highly recommend it.

Okay, I know this is their biggest hit, but I think This Charming Man is my favorite Smiths song. 

Maybe this opinion will change next week, who knows.

Do you know The Housemartins or The Beautiful South? If you like the Smiths you might like these bands.

I tend to love anything British rock or Irish rock related from the Beatles thru to current stuff like the Libertines (2003-2015). 

This was pretty cool. I would listen to something like this in the background while rehabbing or cooking for sure. Thanks. 

The Smiths meanwhile despite singing about themes that have very little to do with me somehow are so fun for me to listen to. It's kind of interesting how that works. I guess I just love Johnny Marr's riffs and Morrissey's vocal melodies.

I've oddly gone through a late age (I'm 37) Joy Division phase recently, though I admit that music is pretty out there. I can't help but be mesmerized by it sometimes. When you understand their music within the context of when it was created, it carries a lot more weight I think.

 

This song without context sounds pretty sloppy I guess, but within the context of rundown Manchester in the late 70s combined with what music in general was like in those times, this is ahead of its time.

Have you gotten to New Order yet? A bit different without Ian Curtis, but the crux of the band is there. One of my favorite albums - Power Corruption & Lies. One of the unfortunate things of Spotify is the recordings I heard back in the 80s are not there, but thank you YouTube.

I actually haven't really yet, but these two songs were awesome, thanks. I know all New Order's hits but actually diving into their catalog, no not yet. I will now though. I've always liked their stuff. 

You could actually see Joy Division trending towards New Order with the song Love Will Tear Us Apart. It's a shame what happened to Ian Curtis. I know the Joy Division version of "Ceremony," which I believe was their last recorded song.

I'm listening to some punk right now.  Specifically Anti-Flag Die for the government.  I don't have the same outlook in life anymore, but I love punk rock. 

Yea same. It's probably why I've trended more towards post-punk music as I've gotten older (and softer).

That's so funny and so true, its hard to hate the system when it has worked for you.  But the music does remind me of the younger years.  There just isn't any rebel without a cause left.

I recently watched this, think you might enjoy it too.

    • Because at your level of golf it's like thinking that a shaft change is going to help you move the ball from left to right or right to left like Bubba Watson. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that golf is about golf equipment. Look at the WITB videos of the top players on Youtube. The majority of them have little or no interest in the shafts they use. They pretty much know they work, don't change them much and in many cases have to look at the shafts to be able to tell with certainty what they are.
    • Day 40 (17 Jan 22) - Yard too soggy for anything outside, opted for putting drills today.  Practiced from 3ft up to 10ft.  Also went all putt putt with setups that forced 2 strokes to get to the hole.  Made for good work on lagging to where I was in position to sink the putt for the second shot.  I like this drill as there are more times than not I have to think "lag" putt to set up for the second.  
    • So I’ve been using $400 Nike IGNITE clubs for about 14 years now and it’s time to upgrade.  They seem very stiff especially when I use someone else's clubs at the range just to get a different feel for it.  My irons on impact feel stiff/rock solid.  I used my friends recently, which were some regular ol' "Top Flite" golf clubs and I noticed the shaft is much more softer, I felt it bend on impact.   I'm not sure which way to go so need some tips.  Should I go for a full set (minus driver and putter) or should I mix and match by getting the irons individually in the irons I use the most, such as 9 iron, 8 iron, 5 iron etc?    What are some good clubs to look at currently? I am ready to get myself clubs that may be more fitted for me in terms of swing speed, power, distance etc.   In terms of budget, I'd say maybe in the $400-1400 range without the driver and putter.
    • Yes, head and shaft were wrapped. It definitely doesn’t look new and it’s not what I ordered so I’ll be returning it soon. I got the wrong head club( mavrik22) and wrong head cover (epic instead of mavrik). No tool, no instructions on adjustments, not even in a callaway box. Like you mentioned it sounds like a bait and switch. I’m just glad I found this forum before it was too late to return it. Thanks for all the help! 
    • Without real information from your fitting, the advice you get here is going to be quite limited.
