    Folks,
    This stuff is serious! Please, use ear plugs, check volumnes, etc! Hearing loss is not a joke. I'm a young guy but I play a lot of loud stuff (rock, lead jazz, etc) and my doc's gave me "the lecture" and showed me some examples of ruined ear drums etc. Please, take the neccessary precuations. Oh, and remember to clean your ears, you never know when someone will take a pic of 'em!

    On the lighter side,

    "Yes, it's clear" said the blind to the deaf man!

    I find putting my fingers in my ears while playing works well, except when I do I notice I can't hear myself playing :)
