Photo #356


For my fellow guitar nerds: Most, like 99.9 percent, of the time I don't use the tremolo bar when I play because I naturally just bend the strings and add vibrato with my fingers. I normally remove the bar and keep it in a basket on my shelf. Last night I was inspired to reattach the bar just for something different. I keep the springs under the bridge pretty tight, so that I only add a little "shimmer". I can't do the heavy metal dive bombs and I don't want to.
I had the idea to show the guitar from a cool angle, but taking the photo was a little awkward. I was holding the camera in my left hand up against the guitar's body and couldn't see the little screen so I just clicked the shutter a few times and hoped for the best. This was the best one.
