Well, good grief!  If you can't go to Alaska to get away from the wankers, what hope is there?

Well if it can make you feel better, a fine tuner on G is not a must have really, you can tune it pretty well just with the peg!

Hope you get your violin working real soon, Joe. I liked your Danny Kaye video!

There have only been two famous people who passed away in my lifetime that caused me to shed a tear.  Danny Kaye is one of them.  He was a great man.

 

If you have a couple hours to spare this is a video of him "conducting".  laugh

Danny Kaye was one of the greats. I don't know how often I have mentally replayed the "Chalice from the Palace" bit in my head while doing dishes. Now I have to go look up Danny Kaye DVDs online!!

I'm a little confused? You broke the fine tuner on your G-string and that stresses you out? You don't even need a fine tuner there at all. The stupid things people stress about. 😉

Try sticking the ball though the tailpiece where the G used to be, fish it out from underneith and threading (looping) the other end through that ball end. Pull it tight and then stick the string end back into the peg to tune it again.

So did you just break your G string fine tuner and that ended your world today? I play many instruments Joe. When I write songs it's just me and my guitar. You OK man? I like weird people and normal people as long as we all have something to offer to our world. I hate people that try to use big words to say nothing.

Cherie, you must descend from British stock, lol. That's not a term one tends to hear outside of the UK, (and Australia)

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!

Not sure just exactly how you brits use it but the connotation in my neck of the woods is most assuredly not polite... sort of like boogers around here come out of the nose, but apparently not so for brits!

Take it easy MGN, they might think that you are serious. We love the Brits here. They make the conversation more interesting.

Terry, I descend from Irish stock actually!  🙂  My family uses a ton of crazy, oddball phrases.  None of which I really knew were unusual until I went to college and people from other parts of the U.S. had no idea what I was talking about!  I apparently have some pretty crazy accent that is a combo of my Irish ancestry and growing up in Pittsburgh.
