I am tuning down to ADGCF for my new project, so I went shopping for new strings. I usually play Super Light .040 sets. Most .045 fiver sets include a .130 B string, at only 28 pounds of tension (vs approx 42 pounds each for the other 4 strings). That string will be flaccid if I tune it to A.
Using D'Addario's tension PDF here, I made a set using the .045-.107 Balanced Tension set and added a .145 tapered B string. The .145 weighs in at 32 pounds of tension, and feels better than any .130 or .135 bottom string I've ever played.
Do you peeps use this, how well has it worked for you?
I am going to Boston and NYC next week and will only be using public transportation. If I find myself in a pinch how dependable is Uber? Is it as economical thrifty as it looks? The Reviews on-line for it all look to good to be true.
Difficult week. But good results. And a good day.
2 meetings on one project today. First one, 1-1/2 hours with project mgmt. and my engineers, on progress and detail questions, concerning a major project I've taken point on. Second one, with the engineers and drafter of said project, another 1-1/2 hours, on how to proceed near and medium turn, time lines and dead lines, etc. Did I mention I'm point because they ran out of time and engineers, so dumped it in my lap because they know I'll pull it off?
New project, if you google Fermilab, Muon Campus or Mu2e or g minus 2, have fun. Kind of hard to describe what I do as a lead fluids engineer/supervisor/project manager for accelerator operations, development, and new projects, at a one-of-a-kind world-class machine. So, I don't normally discuss it. But, eventful hard week. For this Muon Campus, installation of the ultra-pure water system that will cool both experimental areas and all their components. And other small projects, and the big one I've lived for the last 4 years is currently on the shelf, awaiting more funding in FY17. And operations Including support for a small system in a radioactive area where we're seeing too many pump failures and even have the pump reps stumped. So, I don't talk work here. But what a week. And that's without the personal issues.
And I done good.
So I picked up a 4-pack of Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout. And while I'm wasting time on the desktop, I have this going in the background. One thing about Zeppelin on YouTube: Start one, and an endless stream will rotate.
That was before I knew that the UPS driver would double-back tonight and drop off part 2 of the SS!
