Ah, good it sound like it's nothing too serious, phew, you be careful.
You my friend have to be careful of your hands your voice and your general health.
It's even good to know your parent are nurses, so you are in good hands

OK you doing so well, lessons, videos, band, talent comps, practise, etc!
You will really improve the next few years if you keep putting this much time and enthusiasm.

You have a good voice and you sing in tune, I noticed your trying harmonies ( they are more difficult) You will eventually get them pitched better as you gain more experience
Use the guitar or piano to play the melody or harmony note for note in the vocal phase, this will help pitching! Your diction is clear that's a positive to.

I hope you get your guitar case handle on soon!

Okay, it's been a while since I posted something on the forum. Good news, the guitar handle is in place thanks to my awesome dad! Yesterday I played live again, now with my guitar teacher on bass and a drum teacher on drums. It sounded awesome! Next weekend we are playing out of town in a youth minority language festival! I'm looking forward! Twist And Shout on Saami language.

-Cheers

lassiebacker -- OK, so tell us exactly how your father fixed the handle. Did he replace the entire handle assembly, or only the handle grip? After all the research and talking about this, we really want to know. :) Anyway, it's good to hear things are going well. It must have been really cool to have two teachers accompany you! 8-)

The whole handle. Drilled out the thingys that hold the handle to the case, throw them in the garbage and the brackets. If the pops didn't fit, we extended the hole by drilling it more. (The edge). I held the handle while popping the two first on the right side, on the left side; I popped while dad held the popping machine and the handle in place. That's it!

Lassiebacker, you have a great Dad! He fixed the handle to support your Rickenbacker, and he also supports your music. When you become rich and famous, you should then support him, and Mum too. ;) For the time being just thank him and keep playing. I'm looking forward to your new videos using the Ric.

I just can't believe how people are!! I am laughing of the comments on my Ricky videos on YouTube, and I am getting tired of sick, denigrating, idiotic comments.

Ex2: http://www.youtube.com/all_comments?v=PeNUqnSVEb8

(The newest comments) I was planning of adding another video, but now I am changing my mind... It is better to go fish after salmons.

Disable your comments. It appears that you already have ratings disabled.

It's noteworthy, as I have mentioned it in this thread and others, that I am no longer purchasing a 330. In this economy, it makes little sense for me at this time.

The 620/12 is enough Ric to go around for me.

I saw a video on Youtube about a 350 with "hi-gains modified to toasters" How is it possible to do that modification? and is it worth it?

Oh my.

You can buy toasters from this site, and they will fit in your 360 without modification of the wood.

The toasters have a weaker output, I believe, but have a more "vintage" sound.

Do your research before hand, because you wouldn't want to buy them, switch them, and not like them.
