26 Proteus 1 week ago Anyone else find the tip of their tongue gets dry whilst playing guitar? After I stop drooling, I get a complete case of Saharan Dry Mouth - but only when I'm really into it. Like, when I get real gone, man.I've never done the cigarette tuck, but I've played with guys who did. Their twisting their heads to avoid the smoke, and blinking it out of their eyes - along with the cringing expression - became part of their guitar posture and persona.My Tele has a burn near the bottom of the headstock from its original owners. Honorable tradition.
