    As you can see, the key is shouting 'f**k you' at the stone just as it leaves the ground.  Then it won't dare drop on your toes!

    A glute ham raise station!

    I go to a decently kitted out Pure.. they've got prowlers, turf, bumper plates, deadlift platforms, loads of racks and 900 different machines if you're a bit of a fanny - but not one glute ham raise station. 

    I'd like one of those. 

    and a gym that's open.

    this is partly why i stopped going to commercial gyms
    i was literally maxing out all the machines, and im not even that big compared to some other guys on here
    i think most commercial gyms are built for cardio bunnies and weekend warriors, not serious lifters
    these days, i avoid like the plague

    They had to discuss it due to the petition. If you a read of the transcript of the Paramilitary discussion from around 20th Nov (it's v long), sadly you can see that at no point did the Govt suggest they would keep gyms open during lockdown or Tier 4. They said they would review the data and close sectors as required.

    I play the drums. Started when I was 11 with my first drum set. Was banging on pots and pans for a couple of years before that until my parents finally gave in. 
    Still manage 4 or 5 hours playing time in total every week.

    First few months = absolute pain. Lol. Bought electric first as the strings are less thick and they’re “easier” to learn on apparently. Not sure I agree with that as a statement tbh. I’m kinda through the pain barrier now but still get the indents on finger tips and pain after practising for ages, think that’s normal though.

    I’ve just today decided to book some lessons, I was waiting to have some in person but it’s just gona be forever until that can happen so Skype it is. Hopefully il improve faster than just doing stuff myself as it’s got abit stagnant lately. 
    Issue I have with electric is the “sound” is dependent on the guitar, the strings, the tuning/intonation, the capo, the amp, the settings, the effects.. like a million different things, which when you’re beginner is abit too much lol. That’s why I’m getting on with the acoustic better for now I think. 
     
    Been learning game of thrones theme too, repeating the same thing over and over so many times that now I can’t stand to hear the bloody thing haha.

    Cheers man  
    That's class!! The hardest bit I've found with playing in the patience in practicing the same thing over and over until it's like riding a bike (the neighbours love it). YouTube was the best way for learning for me. Used to get lessons for electric too but found that if I did things at my own pace it was a lot easier. Do wish I did more work on scales as it would have made improve/solos easier haha. 
    Yeah man!! "Nothing else matters" and "for whom the bell tolls" were some of the first tracks I learnt  once you get the patterns down it'll click really quickly.  Can't beat a bit of Cash!!

    Nice axe 
    I can do a few very basic things on electric. Some AC/DC, Queen, white stripes etc. About 10 seconds of “nothing else matters” lol. I love rock and metal so that’s my aim ultimately, to be shredding gojira and thrash riffs etc but it’s way beyond my current level. Sticking to some Johnny cash on acoustic for now til I get better
