don't you hate it when your guitar string snaps on a Saturday evening and the shop won't be open until Monday!!!

I've been practising Miracle Drug on the guitar for the last few days and I need that f-ing bottom e-string!!

Not much of a guitar-player meself , but...

If I was, yes I'd hate it!

You know, when you've practised enough, I'd very much like to hear you play 'Miracle Drug' if you have any chance of recording yourself...

Fortunately I do have plenty of friends that play guitar and they live relatively close by. The problem is is that they're Scottish though (we're mean), so asking for a guitar string is like asking for their first-born.

'Miracle Drug' is just very special to me - and I'd love to hear an acoustic version...


Actually, 'Crumbs' and 'Miracle Drugs' are "my songs" from HTDAAB...

I love electric guitar but I tinker with acoustic and bass
I lied about knowing how to play bass so I could play in the church band
Lead guitar helped me know at least something

I just had that thought myself a few moments ago about how cool an acoustic version would sound.

I don't have an acoustic guitar though at present, I was just practising the with my leccy.

until my fecking guitar string went "badoing" that is!

That's how I got into my first band. I wasn't good enough to play guitar, or not confident enough in my abilty maybe, so I bought myself a bass and went about it that way. I grew to love plucking away at those four big strings and it's definately my instrument.

Pharmacists Miracle Drugs - in a acoustic version, Edge!
