TFW you can't afford cigarettes but you go out on campus with your guitar and busk, making enough to fund the habit for a couple of weeks.

TFW you're a lucky *******. It was the most I've ever made and I only played for around an hour. I think it was because it was 4/20 that people had a greater appreciation for the weird **** I was playing (prepared guitar on a guitar with six strings, one of which is broken but I still play with a bow).

I love prepared guitar and experimental music in general, but I've never been able to understand what advantages using a bow on a guitar actually has. It does make a fuzzy sound, but nothing which seems unreachable by other ways while leaving the instrument itself available for more options. The sound is a tad different when you release contact, but then again I feel I can say the same thing about this as I did in my last sentence.

It's really cool for harmonics, plus the amount of pressure you use can give you a lot of different sounds. I mainly used it for the broken string where I would grab it, pull it, then bow it, which gave me more interesting sounds than if I was just bowing the unbroken strings. If I did it slowly I could get a percussive noise almost because it would skip along the bow. Another thing that I do is stick a pencil in the strings to elevate the d and g strings so I can access those without bowing any others.

Hm, the concept of bowing on a broken string is one I had never heard of before and it does sound interesting. I usually employ paper clips on or thread between my strings, but I'll be sure to try this method out sometime as well, thanks!

But hey, back on topic: TFW one wants to jam with Frownland but he's on the other side of the world.

TFW you're traversing the first void, and forget to leave an anchor point, so you get lost and find yourself in the second void without an infinite amount of strength, and you get slaughtered by a rival clan. Anubis's teachings didn't help me.
