Sunday at home

nice instrument, but every now and then the pickup hums (close to low G, in 50Hz surroundings).
no humming for a year now (2013). fishman faq tells something about "the hole beeing too narrow or wide" which is no real help to me.

cardgames

Image
i have 24 cards with all major and minor chords written on it (survival supply, just like dental hygene products and chocolate and a towel of course)

pull a tune, for example: three cards for the chorus two for the bridge.

beaware of morphic fields, places mostly home to guitar players tend to produce tunes centered around E,
for example i got : F#minor B C#minor E Eb

recent experience showed the danger that the improvisation degrades to something like a jam in a-minor or similar, be warned and prepared. possible preparations

alert everyone, twice at leastuses cues and breaksset up a bigger structure, by dynamics, tempo or enlongated harmonic rhythm  which is of course the same one would do when producing written material, but that is the point, it has to be the same.
