Does joining a forum requiring forgetting how to spell DUAL and RIDICULOUS
*EDIT* Sitting on my high horse I screwed up the title. Hehe. *EDIT*
It seems like 75% of the time either of these words are used, they are misspelled. So here is a little education on the matter.
DUAL becomes DUEL - Dual means having a double nature. A duel is formalized combat. If you have a DiMarzio DP101, its called 'DUAL Sound' not 'Duel Sound,' unless you are going to whip out a pistol and shoot it at 12 paces. DUAL. WITH AN *A*.
RIDICULOUS becomes REDICULOUS - this one I can't understand as I dont even known anyone who pronounces ridiculous as rediculous. Do you say 'red ic u lous'... nooo, it's 'rid ic u lous'. Leave the red for a 550RFR.
Coming in third is TREMOLO. Trem o lo *not* trem el o. TREMELO is a town in BELGIUM. Tremolo is a number of different things including your moving bridge. Unless you plan on floating a Flemish village, spell it correctly as TREMOLO.
Ok, I'm done.
