    Does @Stratman10 even exist or is he a figment of your fertile imagination?

    What I love about that scene is that they get all the thumps, pops, and clicks just right as he sets up. Right down to the hum when he turns up.

    I have the same issue. My fiance asks why I always shut down when she come home.

    1) I can't play for squat and don't want to embarrass myself.

    2) She always says she doesn't like music. "Can you turn that noise down?" (Well, it's Dave Brubeck, so.....no.)

    hopefully in about 2 months I'll be able to assail my sensibilities in a similar fashion, if not on quite the same scale

    My wife doesn’t leave often enough:rolleyes:, so I’ve been relegated to the bedroom when I want to pull out the ABY pedal, and run STEREO amps. There’s nothing sweeter than a wet/dry with my Princeton on one side, and my Bassbreaker on the other!

    So true. Showed it to my wife. She agreed but mentioned guitar slinging obviously women have the same issue.

    Notice that the jack gets plugged into a "GA-5T" (Gibson Skylark amp...18 watts..)?

    I'd love to crank it when the family aren't around but a) must look after my ears and b) I share a wall with neighbors.

    I did... and wondered why? Leftover from Doc Brown's youth maybe?

    When the neighbor dude works on his subwoofer in his CR-V, I wanna go out on the back proch and play the Hendrix Star Spangled Banner. With my little Roland Cube turned up as far as it will go on the R-fier channel or whatever it is. Problem is I can't play it that well. And too lazy to invest the effort. Kinda like the neighbor dude and getting a job.

    But if the wife is running errands, I can play as loud and poorly as best I can.

    Every single time she leaves the house and I'm home, I get giddy and run to the basement, 100% of the time. Sometimes she returns quickly and walks in while I'm still playing and she freaks out "Jesus you're going to damage your hearing!" or "The whole neighbourhood can hear you!" but she doesn't mind, just concerned. :)
