I can't imagine how you figured this out.

The answer: Yes, obsessively, compulsively for many years. The last few years guitar has been more my obsession though (when I manage to find time for such things). On guitar I'm a fingerpicker....I play any kind of music I can manage, regardless of style, including folk/traditional, some bluesy stuff, some classical, some latin stuff, and some things that sort of verge on being jazz. Since I normally play music alone for my own amusement, I tend to gravitate toward things with lots of notes with melody and harmony all worked into the same arrangement. I've been working on mastering a nice arrangement of Sleigh Ride most recently (parts of it have been a big challenge to play well!....maybe I'll have it down by next Christmas!).

Cool.. the banjo headstock was my first clue.. LOL

I play banjo and guitar aswell.. I am mostly into the bluegrass and country stuff. I also play fingerstyle guitar such as some classical type pieces. Good Luck on the Sleigh Ride.

OK...seriously OT (the forum cops are going to get me if I don't get back to talking about something that lives in saltwater), but take a look at this awesome web site:
http:www.frettedinstrumentsnyc.com (click on the Music tab at the top for some amazing collections of really good quality tablature).

At the rate I learn complicated pieces like this, there is several lifetimes worth of pieces to learn at this web site!

Wish I had a decent steel string... bluegrass flatpicking would be lots of fun too.

By the way, Bela Fleck (at least with respect to his acoustic stuff) is my hero!

I know this is a late reply....but out RBTA stings me and doesnt seem to go after Tom. I only get a slight burning (after my arm is out of the water) and some slight redness. I have lifted one from tank to tank with no problems but I do get stung in general tank maint., go figure.
Vet gloves go up to your armpit and are good for reefkeeping....I would imagine pretty easy to get also. If you get them from a vet or vet supply, they may be cheaper than ones sold "for aquarium keeping", although I am not possitive about this.

Good Luck.

Some here would say that they sort of stick to you. That is true. I didn't think that they hurt at all. It remains true unless you REALLY get stung by one on the forearm. There is a huge difference between the sticking static like thing and actually having the harpoons stuck in you. Then they hurt. A lot.. and scar. I have photos of mine from a condy.

If you are going to touch, simply wear gloves
