I tried replacing my B string. I took out the old one with no problem. I strung the new one through, I got it through the peg. I started turning the peg counterclockwise like rangeor's guide said to, and after the string being wound just one time around the peg, it snaps around halfway down the neck as I wind it. #-o I have no idea what I did wrong.

 

No! You only skimmed through that page - if you read all of it you'd notice it said that if your guitar has three tuning pegs on each side, you turn the higher string pegs (e, B, G) clockwise and the lower string pegs counterclockwise.

 

I don't see where it said that... D:

 

 

 

oh, it's one of the comments down below.

 

:wall:

 

 

 

Well, I should be able to do it next time.

You should use soap and water. Hand sanitizer if there's no soap availble, I'll find a scource.

It's also directly in the lesson.

 

 

 

Winding on the peg. This part is the same for all types of guitars (except classical guitars). The most important part of this is getting the string on the right side of the peg, and here is how to do it. First of all line up the hole in the peg so it is facing straight down the neck. Put the string through the hole and pull it back so you have some slack. The amount of slack you need will vary, depending on the thickness of the string. The 6th string only needs about 7cm but the 1st string can take 10cm, or thereabouts. Now hold the string in place with your right hand, just hold the peg so the string cannot slip and then turn the peg ANTI-CLOCKWISE if you are looking at the peg (if the peg is underneath like on some Gibson guitars then it looks clockwise from above).

Can anyone provide any advice on how to improve handwriting? You know without the tediousness of writing the same letter over and over again to perfection.

 

This will help me as well, I have horrific handwriting.

 

But I think the only way to get better is practice.

 

Good handwriting is for unimportant people anyways.

This is what I did, so I sugesst you do the same.

 

 

 

Write out one whole 7mm lined A4 page. You can time yourself if you wish.

 

 

 

The content should be anything. It help if you enjoy reading it. I wrote out National Geographic articles. :thumbup:

 

 

 

Sorry, there is no quickfix. :lol:

I would think washing your hands is better. Sanitizer kills germs, but soap and water kills germs and rinses them off your skin.

So sanitiser just kills them and leaves them on your skin?

Turns out sanitizers work a little differently than I thought, but soap is still more effective.

 

 

 

[hide=]How do hand sanitizers work?

 

 

 

Hand sanitizers work by stripping away the outer layer of oil on the skin. This usually prevents bacteria present in the body from coming to the surface of the hand. However, these bacteria that are normally present in the body are generally not the kinds of bacteria that will make us sick. In a review of the research, Barbara Almanza, an associate professor at Purdue University who teaches safe sanitation practices to workers, came to an interesting conclusion. She notes that the research shows that hand sanitizers do not significantly reduce the number of bacteria on the hand and in some cases may potentially increase the amount of bacteria on the hand.

 

 

 

How can the manufacturers make the 99.9 percent claim?

 

 

 

The manufacturers of the products test the products on inanimate surfaces hence they are able to derive the claims of 99.9 percent of bacteria killed. If the products were fully tested on hands, there would no doubt be different results. Since there is inherent complexity in the human hand, testing hands would definitely be more difficult. Using surfaces with controlled variables is an easier way to obtain some type of consistency in the results. But as we are all aware, everyday life is not as consistent.

 

 

 

Hand Sanitizers vs. Soap and Water

 

 

 

Almanza recommends that to properly sanitize the hands, soap and water should be used. A hand sanitizer can not and should not take the place of proper cleansing procedures with soap and water.[/hide]

I suggested this ages ago possibly even a year or more ago in the relationship thread but didn't take it any further. I'm still for the idea :thumbup: even if I'm not around much anymore.

The only people who tell you that you can't do something are those who have already given up on their own dreams so feel the need to discourage yours.

Any clubs in your small town? e.g sports or random recreational groups

 

Because joining them leads to meeting new people which could in turn be your new friends. :)

I've tried this, and unfortunately it doesn't work ._.

 

 

 

At least you have friends :/ Go visit them or wait for them to come back... I'm probably not the best person to give advice on this type of thing, I'm just somebody who has been going through what you're going through for 16 years ;D You'll get over it and realize that being alone isn't that bad =P

No, I can go to a place without taking any friends with me and I can still make friends. Just make sure you go there frequently and then after a few times you can approach people. Or you can approach them on the first time but that's a bit too freaky for me. For example if you were playing a 'light' sport like badminton you can start a conversation while having rallies.

The clubs and facilities only give you a chance to make friends, just like school does. They're not the magical friend making remedy, courage is.

Well, I was really interested on deciphering this text. Apparently, it's Vietnamese:

 

[hide=]65381738.png[/hide]If anyone was able to post a translation, I'd be forever and ever grateful to them. <3:

 

 

 

[Edit] The original comes from this site. There are also a couple of latin phrases there, but they don't intrigue me as much as the Vietnamese text.
