Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Bobby Ties One On

It’s upside-down, Bobby.

“The jacket? I don’t wear them a lot, but I’m pretty sure this is the proper configuration.”

The slide.

“I didn’t bring my slide. Just playing acoustic tonight.”

No, a bolo tie has three pieces: the cord, the metal tips on the end of the cord called aglets, and the thing that holds it together is called the slide.

“I feel like we all just learned something.”

The guitar should be pointing down.

“Like they crucified Saint Peter.”

Yeah, sure, I guess.

“It’s my bolo tie, and I’ll wear it how I please, thank you.”

I’m looking out for you here. If you look down too fast, you’re gonna get an accidental tracheotomy.

“That’s the worst kind. I’ll take my chances.”

    The only time you wear the guitar pointing down is when you are doing so as a sign of mourning at the passing of a guitar great. Or, when someone plays a really lousy guitar.

    • I’m pretty sure that an upside down guitar is a sign of distress.

    • Luther Von Baconson

      • Shouldn’t he be blonder, blinder and bluesier? Or maybe more than one person plays guitar in that manner (Which is improper rock technique, by the way. One cannot do the lunge, the kickback, the sword or any number of other critical rockstar moves holding a guitar that way).
