    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Nikon does a better job at attracting newbies. Newbies only care about MP and NIkon has got Canon beat on MP/$ We'll see how much shooting I do when I move and lose the landscape opportunities I have here. The fear of stopping the hobby is what's stopping my from investing more money into it.

    The release of the 7Dii also made the value of used 7D's drop like a sack of potatoes. So much so that even my broke ass could afford one.

    Thanks fellas. Did good enough to get a job and get into grad school. That's good enough for me!

    Shit got deep in the hop. I'm not as wise as Stefan so i'll tango. I guess that would depend on what you believe God's role is. If you're "programmed" to die early, why can't other people be programmed by the same god to develop something to derail you from your early death? I hope I'm programmed to find a rich busty woman....

    You mean finger picking? Or you mean finger tapping? Either are fine. I took classical lessons for 11 years and in high school played Eruption while hosting the battle of the bands during a set change to keep the crowd entertained. Pick work is what is demoralizing to me. The stupidly easy 3, 8, 3, 4 open E pattern in Holy Wars is just not playable for me anymore. I can't say that I spend much time practicing it, but that is also because it pisses me off since I can't nail the damn rhythym. I can't believe I'm having a hard time finding a video to accurately describe this. My lack of understanding probably stems from the one "fingerstyle" artist i saw live playing in a certain way. What I mean is kind of like playing a guitar like a piano, where you have both a harmony and melody element existing simultaneously. This requires great finger picking work (what i'm struggling with). I imagine your classical training would help you exceed at something like this. Kinda like the first few seconds of this: https://youtu.be/CJ0pFGHdEcU?t=227

    Sean can you do any fingerstyle work? Never had any experience with it and just started trying it. I knew I would struggle but holy cow is it demoralizing!!!

    In search of new Sub, Please help

    Don't want to get off topic, but do you know why you fried the coil on the SSD? Just want to make sure you don't spend more hard earned $$$ on equipment and then ruin it again.

    I have that set in gold. My problem stemmed from these two things: I couldn't get the insert nuts perfectly square on all four corners. I did get them close enough to where I didn't think it would be a problem My carpet is so spongy that the discs the spikes were resting on would sink into the carpet a far ways. This caused me to make them almost as tall as possible using the threaded rod. This amplified the non-square insert nut problem. Ended up bending a rod.So mostly user error. But it can be difficult to get those things in there perfectly square. Just my experience. If you're careful and patient they'll probably work just fine
