    Hey there Rufty-Tuffty!

    We're talkin about you over in the philosophical religion thread!

    Really wish you would come back!

    few people have ever reached your mythical status in under a dozen posts and then vanished!

    This thread was due for a long overdue bump!
    @I Break Things and others have been quoting it for a while now.... Generally I'd say we are all still a little gun-shy of getting a 'punched in mouth!'
    How about you? Any sentiments you can share with ol' Ruffty Tuffty!?

    I'm in a trial period with heavy strings. I will report back if I keep the heavy strings and rufftuff prescribes me a punched mouth.

    The trick is not to tell him how much you like them or how much better they are than his skinny strings.
    And DO NOT recommend he try them or his toanez will suffer! Better duck quick if you do!

    I have to say, even with 11's, I feel like I'm going to break that high E, especially tuning. Maybe I should try something stupid like 16-22-28 for the high strings just for laughs sometime! :laugh2:

    Maybe someone should try to contact rufftuff through some internet searching and invite him back here.

    I mean, anyone who can author a thread that has grown legs this long surely has more to offer?

    Yeah, we need ol' rufftuff back. Like to know his opinion on top-wrapping. And poo covered candy.

    I dunno- I'm mostly an acoustic (and bass) player, and I found when I played an electric with 10s that my left hand was bending strings out of tune.

    She needs SOMETHING... Like a gallon of thorazine every half hour... That just ain't right posting a picture of her on MLP though. That ain't kosher at all! :laugh2:

    I swear to Turnip posting Rosie pics ought to be against board regulations like P&R.

    ...just ain't right. People can be eating and stuff,...scroll down and see that......it ain't right to cause people to lose their appetite.


    edit: :laugh2: we had the same thought. "It aint right to do that" :laugh2:

    IKR! It ought to be against the obscenity clause somewhere! And to do it without warning!

    That'll give @LtDave32 a reason to block me for another hour for sure!!!! :rofl:
