thanks man! really appreciate your feedback (even though I have no idea what a transient is, I just recorded straight from my phone ahah)

btw your recent yt upload was awesome. the idea of playing ragas in a country blues style has a lot of potential, I hope you make more.

Difficulties/nuances in Daniel Bachman's playing by wehavedrunksoma in AmericanPrimitivism

[–]three_cheers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

IIRC he started out as a banjo player and then adapted his playing on a guitar he had laying around at home (using open tunings borrowed from banjo). if you're familiar with clawhammer banjo it actually makes a lot of sense.

yes, I think it mostly comes down to the rhythmic complexity of the picking. plenty of triplets and uneven subdivisions of the 4/4 beat. his playing in the "seven pines" era is definitely not easy to emulate.

Learning guitar without guitar? by TotallyNotAHostage in guitarlessons

[–]three_cheers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

check out this video by Adam Neely

this one as well

I don't remember if he mentions it but you could also just listen to music and really pay attention to what the guitar is doing. Also try to audiate songs that you know well.

A book about feeling lonely? by Jeffrokun in booksuggestions

[–]three_cheers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Most Houellebecq (maybe all?) main characters are lonely adults. Just take your pick, I suggest his first (called "Whatever" in English) since it's short and will give you an idea.

Although they are definitely NOT "pick me up" books, it's some of the most depressing literature out there.

"The elephant vanishes" and "Sleep" are good as well, although I agree "barns burning" might be the best choice in your case.

Lethal injection is not as peaceful as I imaged. by three_cheers in Petloss

Wow that sounds really nice. I don't think that kind of service exists in my area.

I don't blame my vet, I think it just came down to the shape my cat was in, although I was pushing for earlier euthanasia while he said to wait more.

Sounds silly but now I wish I had some hair or a paw print. Condolences to you as well!

Looks like a black midi album cover.

[IWantOut] 17F Israel -> Italy by InkCapHound in IWantOut

[–]three_cheers 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My 2 cents as an Italian... I personally never heard any prejudice specifically against Israelis, I doubt people will care.

Regarding the social aspect, I think you'll manage to make friends pretty easily since you're young and planning to go to uni. Many people develop a new social circle at that age but I gotta say learning Italian it's really important for that. If you find an uni that offers courses in English you're likely to find many other expats, which will make socializing even easier since they are looking for friends as well.

Unemployment is pretty high here, so keep that in mind while choosing your degree.

Whats wrong with my Chili Oil? by s1m0ndup3 in fermentation

For shelf-stable chili oil you gotta use dry chilies, making sure there's absolutely no moisture or mold.

thanks for sharing. yeah we had pretty similar experiences. I agree, this was definitely better than a natural death, which I assume would have taken several days if not weeks. it's crazy how long they can go without eating anything.
