Animals As Leaders have some insane music! Abasi could play a 37 string in his sleep.



Damn, I struggle with six strings!



The title of this article made me do a double take. Should it be "Six strings isn't enough," or "Six stings aren't enough"? If the verb refers to the strings, it should say "aren't" But if it refers to the number, it should say "isn't." This one isn't easy to figure out. At any rate, six string guitars do have some limitations, but so do 16 stringers. I find most eight string guitars almost unmanageable to play. Maybe it just takes getting used to.
