Re: The funny thread

not a joke, but a legendary tale While Boon has always refused to talk about it, several teammates swear he downed 52 beers on the way to the 1989 series, breaking a record of 44 set by Doug Walters and Rod Marsh on earlier tours.

Interested to know the answer. I have no idea. Sold my SR5 a long time ago. Won't buy another one, but they both sound awesome in that.

Welcome to the forum Lyrebird. Great to have you. I've never heard of Durbano or Mr Fabulous, but I'm sure all the PU nerds on here will be interested in your findings.

Re: Small Rig

40 kilos? no wonder my back hated it. Halfway up a double storey set of stairs I felt it slipping, so I let go, if it broke I'd borrow someone else's amp, I had stopped caring. It slid all the way down to the basement level with a loud thud. Worked first time and for the next five years til I trade...

Re: SINGLE STRING SLAP PERMUTATIONS??

Hi Aaron, welcome to OBF. We like stingrays and bacon, so you should fit in well around here. :) A couple things stand out to me (as a teacher and a player)... 1.
