Default Going to limit AGF time to 15-20 minutes a day

Hey y’all, this is a PSA that will impact virtually all of you.

Yes, I’ve decided to reduce, restrict and otherwise limit my time on AGF.

Now I realize I’ll miss out on:
- Is Rosewood better than Mahogany?
- Which strings are best on a J45?
- Looking for opinions, should I buy another guitar?

I will stop in and read a few posts, like:
“Yes, Mahogany is better than Rosewood.”
“Elixir Nanoweb 12-53 are best on a J45.”
“Only YOU can decide if another guitar is right for you.”
(that’s the biggest waste of response of all time.. I mean duh)

Anyway, I’m not mad, nor sad.
I just need to clean out my garage,
and paint my house,
and wax my motorhome,
and cut some firewood.

So if you wonder what happened to woodbox, (and I’m sure you all will)
I’m still part of the family, and will read a few, but won’t be posting.
I’m just taking an AGF participation sabbatical.
And I know the illustration of pulling ones hand out of a bucket of water to illustrate how much or how long you’ll be missed.

I’ll miss you, and I know you will all miss me. (uh huh.. yeah, right)
See you in September.

(maybe I could write a song with that as the first hook line... )
🙏

Woodbox, you're might miss the "Should I Tonerite my picks" thread.

Unfortunately 'NGD' seems to be too short of a string for the search function.

15-20 minutes is easy. Try 19-14 minutes a day, that’s a hard one.

Dont you want our opinion if you should buy a new chainsaw or not? Stihl is the best mass-produced saw, but if youre willing to spend more, There are some shops that will build you a botique saw. Now, 18” or 24” for better tone? Maybe a poll as to what 2-cycle oil is best...

I’m putting vintage plastic bridge pins on my J 50 and recording some before and after samples this weekend, woodbox. You might wish to delay your AGF diet until after we chart the differences. I await the Nobel Prize.

Make sure there’s no silicone in that wax.
