It's not rare that we'll get over ten pages here discussing a topic concerning sound waves, metal vibrations, chemical analysis of raw materials, and what have you, as it relates to the more scientific aspects of sound. But my question to the group is... has any of this ever helped your playing? Have you used any of the knowledge gained from these discussions in a practical application that has improved and/or broadened your skills? I'm sure the techs love it, and I don't mean to diss their intellectual endeavors, but when that perspective invades the threads calling for more subjective experiences, what is really trying to be proven? Now the science involved here is fascinating, no doubt, but as far as practical applications go, how are we using this information? Is it simply a mental exercise for those wishing to expand and/or flaunt their knowledge base, or are we learning something of use... and if so, what is it?
