Re: post count

Always late in jumping on the bandwagon. :roll:

:think: Viking thinks to himself 303 posts would sound better than 11. If it's not too much hassle would be appreciated. :big_smile:

Re: 25 Years Ago Today

Thanks HBL. :big_smile: 25 years ago my beard was black - there's a few game black hairs still hanging on but they're now an opressed minority. :oldie: Also 25 years ago the central heating boiler was working - wish it still was. About to break out the hot water bottles and put on extra fleeces! :cr...

Re: Actually playing is hard!

I think your problem might be lessened wth a concentration of more hammer ons and pull offs and slides which should help the flow.
