    First plane I flew in at around 5 years old. They were doing flights from North Weald during the airshow 1988ish.

    Online Christmas shopping started about 3 weeks ago, couriers taking a third more packets/small parcels than this time last year. Mrs Y is also boasting having sorted my Christmas present and started on the kids. I'm not a last minute kinda guy, but November at the earliest please.
    Oh well, if it all sells out there are always tattoos...

    I don't think it can read the manual aperture setting off the lens and has to be set from the camera. Set the aperture ring to A and use the switch on the shutter button whilst holding the little round exposure button left of where the lens mounts to change aperture... Does that work?

    And that 335 is looking the tits too.

    Ta! It's the smaller body Epi 339 with the hotter and tapped pups. My first proper guitar hero was Jonny Greenwood so everything is preferred in Sunburst!

    Finally sat down with the pedal board this evening, though I'm woefully short on decent patch cables and any kind of finesse in routing. Some of these must be coming near 20 years old.
    But I reckon this will be my layout for stoner/doom vibes, might swap the blues driver for the MD2 Distortion for more variation. I'd like to squeeze a big gazey verb in too, but I've got the lexicon rack mount I could use which could more than fill that roll.

    Got another piece of wood and strings, Mrs Y is well happy "but you're a bass player!?"
    By miles the best guitar I've owned (cheapo les Paul's, Epi SG, cheaper Jackson RR, couple of Yamahas and Epi 339) and just feels amazing, but what's with the bell plate not having recessed screw holes and the screws sitting proud?
    Need an excuse to play this loud now!

    Edit. Wrong thread.

    Always good to use your phone to film your set, then you can look back and study your form and you won't be stressing your neck trying to watch a mirror.

    First ever? Was it squats or deadlifts? How did you calculate your starting weight?
    If I were to guess yes, yes and you're on here because you ride a bike I'd hazard a guess you started too heavy. As you ride you'll have relatively stronger legs than the rest of your body, and more so than the average desk sitter.
    5 x is a good balance for stimulating hypertrophy and strength gains. I'd suggest go lighter, not less, at least until the linear progression stalls.
