Well Nigel, I already had written two or three lines regarding that "bollocks" thing. But I decided not to post them. It's not worth it.
I've met Motörhead fans from all over the world and they always were excessively friendly people. I can't see any reason for insulting anyone in this forum and especially this thread. Even if someone has a contrary opinion on a subject - there's no need to get rude. But as always in life - no rule without exception
Holding a guitar or bass too low, resulting in overstraining all the "mechanics" of hand, forearm and fingers causes trouble. Today, tomorrow, in 5 years. Every teacher or surgeon will confirm that.
But again, I should keep all that too myself. Not my business....
