I bought a set of Hohner Blues Rocker harmonicas maybe six months ago. I've had no problem with them, but recently, I'm having trouble with the A harmonica: some notes are coming out doubled--the sound is similar to a trilling flute, that's the best way I can describe it.
I checked the note holes...

I have a new product idea based on the recent Knockout phenomenon. Basically it's a motorcycle helmet with a whole bunch of razor-sharp steel spikes affixed to it. The idea is if someone tries to land a punch, the assailant's hand will be impaled on the spikes and–hopefully–ground down into hamburge...

I never watched this show as a kid, but I caught 5 episodes last week, and in those episodes, Chuck Connors killed 14 people.
Connors himself once estimated he killed about 2.5 people per show, which, over the five years it ran, would amount to a couple hundred dead. The website riflemanconnors....

I'm a self-taught player; I've been playing about six years exclusively on acoustic guitars. I've never had much luck with barre chords, which I attribute to having small hands ... and my innate lack of musical talent.
Just the same I've had no problem being an open chord player; I've written abo...

I read some comments from a couple 12-string players in another thread, which lead me to start this one.
Along with a couple 6-strings, I play a 12-string Seagull Coastline. I love the sound but find it harder to play—I have small hands and my fretting hand hurts from having to grip the thicker n...

My wife has a refrigerator-sized meat freezer out on our back porch (screened, not glass enclosed). I'm thinking this thing might add another $20–$30 a month to our electricity bill, running 24/7 in the heat and all. Anyone have a similar set up—thoughts on how much it costs to run the thing?...

I can see a Beatles-type band at a place like Disneyland because ... well shit, everything at Disneyland is fake. But beyond that, what's the deal with the tribute band concept?
