AFAIK, it's pure fantasy, well, it depends on your definition of "pure"... A friend had one, it's a very nice model, but the the Comma-shaped bosom armour plates are a modesty optional add-on, as is the location of the strategically-placed helmet - full anatomical detail is included, IIRC.

OK, anybody have an opinion on her singing?
Had I read the Parade from several weeks ago I would have known who she was. She's got about four real names.

Anyone old enough to remember the old guy she is imitating in her actions? I thought it was P.J. Proby who used to hold the mic from above and slide his hands all over it. Same with all the other hand gestures such as making a circle with the hand and looking through it and all the other crap.
What is day-unce anyway?
Sign me up for the Grumpy Old Men tv series or put me on Craggy Island.

Replying to my sey-ulf. I think it was Dave Berry in the old black and white tv days.

Speaking from a purely comic book/fantasy aesthetics POV, I'd say it's because it matches the hilt of her dagger...seeing as it's a fantasy figure...I'd have matched the hilts of the dagger and the sword, myself.
...if the hilts were wood or leather, I'd have made her a brunette or a redhead...yeah...and dropped the pasties...

hey Rufus, how on earth do you play an A chord if you have big fingers? Damned if I can get that chord without some fret buzz...

B.B. King has got to have the hugest fingers I've ever seen on a guitar player...glad he's a blues player and not a proctologist...
I noticed that when I got my two Fenders that my hands prefer a flat fretboard to a curved one - and that I tend to use the side/flats of my fingers rather than the tips. Particularly with barre chords. That's why I like a VERY low - "Jimmy Page low" - action on my axes. I have to use the tips of my fingers on a curved fretboard to avoid having pain when I play - took me a bit to work that out.
I'd try fretting a bit farther away from the fret and pressing harder, instead of nearly on top of the fret. Might want to try a lower setup as well, and check to see if you use the same technique on different fretboards.

It will come with patience and practice. ;)
I have been noodling on guitar for 18 months (I have played bass for almost 20 years) and I am still having trouble with open B and F chords and as for barre chords ....arghhh! I have difficulty holding the barre and the notes, I can manage one or the other but not both. :(
I started with an acoustic and spent several months tweaking and sanding the bridge piece until I got the action as low as I could without fret buzz then last Christmas I treated myself to a used electric and what a difference! It is much easier to play (and adjust for action, I too like it super low) and now I find myself learning things on the electric and then transferring them to the acoustic and that seems to work for me.
With all the years of bass playing I think I just naturally gravitate to single notes now and lead playing is no real difficulty (other than speed and technique)but playing rhythm and chords is a different ball of wax. I also have a keyboard and find I can pick out single note melody lines easily but have trouble with the chords on that too.
Keep at it and you will get it eventually.

...I don't think I've ever played anything but a barre for a B...other than a 7th or 9th triad.
As for F - think of playing a C and anchoring your index finger on the second string, first fret. Then it's just a matter of "swinging" your other two fingers over two strings from C. Practice changes from C to F that way, and you'll be a quick-change artist in no time.

Yup. I hear that jazz players prefer low-low actions because the chord so much, but it sure does make life easier all the way round, don't it?
I do a lot of the same - from 6 to 12 string. I'll practice a run or phrasing on a 6-sting, and then go do it on the 12 until I get it managed. My double neck Gibson is a really great practice axe when it come to doing that.

...I bought a bass some years ago just for that reason - thinking that learning to play bass well would make me a better lead player. But then I never really followed through with learning to play bass well.
Practice...yeah, practice!
