How not to pick up your guitar.
Ok, this morning my mate was late picking me up for work cos he couldnt get the van started. So i thought i'd play my guitar for a bit till he came, great.
My guitar, and RG1550 was lying on the bed, i reached down and picked it up by the strap, bad idea. The strap was wrapped around the top horn and as i lifted it up it flipped over and smacked me square in the mouth, OUCH.
So i quickly ran to the bathroom to see i had split my lip and blood was pouring out, what a b*st*rd.
So lesson to everyone, dont pick your guitar up by the strap, otherwise you, like me, will be drinking soup through a straw for your tea.
