  • What do you think about wearing gloves while playing bass for someone (me) who suffers from extreme sweatiness especially in the hands / doesn't want calluses / wants to keep nails long for other purposes. Does that affect plucking at all? Marching Band gloves for example.

    problem is some other stringed instruments like having nails. I play ukulele too for example

    If you're playing finger style with long nails on electric bass, you'll get sick of it very fast, and the sound guy will either hate you or just be confused about that weird scraping sound (if he's inexperienced). Pick is a decent option too. Anything is better than gloves though, don't even consider it as a last resort.

    Yeah I prefer finger to pick 100%. Nails suck for bass and I know it but if I cut them then I can't play ukulele as well. Sadface
    Yo how do you play bass without gigantic hands? In one song I have to go from fret E-2 to D-4 in eighth notes at like 165 BPM and my pinky socket is in pain

    Lol I just read eigth notes. Keep your left hand placed (you don't need to move it unless you're literally Barbie), let the right hand do the muting.

    transitioning from ukulele to bass guitar was quite dramatic
    I'll be teaching secondary school (equivalent to Grade 6-12 so I guess middle + high school). Also I agree, physics is such a misunderstood subjects so it will be fun trying to get students to not be intimidated by it and enjoy it

    There will be the really bright ones and then you'll have a good chunk that just don't get it. Don't get discouraged, STEM is not easy to teach but it is rewarding

    If it ever happens. Rugyong Hotel is a very popular spring break resort too, so I'll meet you there.
    Your post made me realize, for most people on Smogon this is actually the first time they can/will vote. That never really dawned on me.

    Yeah I realized how much of an old fart I was when I said that this is my third time voting for potus. In fact, my 18th birthday was 3 days after bush/kerry, so it's almost my 4th

    Not to mention that a great deal of posters or followers of that thread could very well be ineligible to vote until 2020, and a few have made it clear that they aren't even American.

    Yeah. It's interesting, all these people have been interested in politics for a while but it's the first time they'll actually be able to vote. Just an interesting perspective.

    I personally missed the deadline to get the mail-in ballot and I'm away at university so I can't vote at home, so I'll have to sit this one out. I'd probably vote Evan McMullin too, though he's not on the ballot where I live anyway (Florida). Maybe next four years :D can't imagine what precedent this will set and how weird things will be then.
    Late because I haven't been around either, but rude :[ See you around mister.
    Hey, saw your Ev Guide for Fire Red, you put Muk as 2 Hp Evs when it's actually 1 HP, 1 Atk. Resulting in my Gengar (meant to be sp atk heavy and hp heavy) now has 1/3 ev training in ATK which is completely useless for his moveset. Look, no harm no foul, my fault for not double checking, just check your source before posting. I like a site that doesn't require me to cross check with serebii.
    came to check on your custom title, very happy to see it <3 cheering you on for a year and more!

    had some seizures last night myself, but I'm on a med that works better than literally any med I've tried before, so things are looking up for both of us seemingly. hitting some of my own seizurefree personal bests on this meds

    solidarity! woohoo \o/
