Just chop up some mushroom and carrots too and.....

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm........ I can taste it already.

Not long ago, I scrubbed the strings on my acoustic with a cloth and they became much nicer. Easier to slide and more aesthetically pleasing. The low E string especially had a big difference in color. Went from looking like some kind of dull metal to shiny brass.

Mmm....Flesh broth...*droooooooool*

Haha, my friend has a bass and he's had the same strings on it for over 4 years now...but now after four years of use and abuse, it's really hard to bend the strings and stuff, but it gets an awesome sound...so i'm thinking of (possibly, if I can...) going out and buying new strings for him...I mean...C'mon...4 years?!? I replace mine atleast once every freakin' 6 months to one year!

I wouldnt buy him new strings, i bet the guy has a lot of pride in his strings being 4 years old and still going, haha, if he wanted new strings dont you think he would of bought a set by now?.. unless he is real poor and wants some then go for it. haha

Also flesh broth does smell pretty good. sorta like a fryed egg.

haha...it smells...uhhh...weird...>_<'; I paid my friend to eat some...he did.

He isn't fucking poor he has a fucking huge crate amp...he's mainly a guitarist, and rarely plays his bass...so I think that's just part of the reason...but if not, they have to be some really damned good strings...

When hes out of town, steal his bass take the strings off, boil them, and whack them back on the bass, see what happens then, eh

No money wasted or anything.

Heh heh heh...I'll try. I do think it's about that time to boil those strings...I mean, it's a washburn though...and he's spend thousands of dollars on all of gear and stuff...new bridges, new amps, new guitars...I mean, he has atleast 6-7 guitars in his room alone, and 4-6 amps of dirrerent brands and sizes...so I don't think he'd really need them boiled if he can get all of that...

On the other hand...there is a slight issue- does boiling loosen the strings, or make them more tense? Because when I did it to mine, they only slightly tensened up.
Because like I said before- "...they are stiff and kind of hard to bend..." and I don't wanna make them any harder because I gotta play with that guitar at his house, and when our band gets a gig.

Yeah, but I dont play it that much.
The strings are actaully cleaner looking than Slayerdudes bass strings and it stays in tune real good.

Well it's a Washburn, you rarely play bass, and I've used my bass almost 2 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 man...so go figure the differance.
