Guys...I need help.


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

Okay...so I've had something on my mind for a long time now. I can't stop thinking about it. I've talked with almost every person I've spoken to in the past couple days. Only because I feel kind of like its urgent now. Okay...so as everyone knows already...we're destroying the earth, our home, our provider, our mother. If we don't make a change very soon, they'll be no us. Anyway, with that out of the way. I have to rant about this...Before all "this" meaning society today, we had everything that we needed...everything. We all had food, water, shelter, clothing, every single thing we needed. I feel like everything I do every single thing I do almost every day is pointless...a step in the wrong direction. We take so very much more than we need and give nothing in return. Only piling trash onto the earth. Before all this, every single thing you used gave back to earth...every single thing. I mean everything. Then I feel like somehow someone realized, oh wow, that piece of gold, or silver, or something shiny, is really pretty it means a lot to me...or its WORTH this much to me. Keep in mind, this thing is useless...you can't eat it, you can't drink it, you really can't even really use it... it's useless. Then everyone sees this thing...and so somewhere an offer is made for something useful in exchange for the useless thing. And to me it feels like that was where we messed up. We messed up bad. I mean we work for money every day...when in reality, true reality, we don't even need it. We could be provided for, in full, for the rest of forever honestly. If we just looked at the ground, and sky, or felt the wind, heard the whispers around us, notice the color fading, and realize wait...I could have everything I really need...but I'm killing it. We were never meant to be this. We were never supposed to think of ourselves as superior, we aren't superior. The earth isn't in our control. We never needed a government, or economy, or a leader, or a system, or today's society. We would have everything we needed...no more poverty, no more wars, no more system, no more pollution, no more insanity...no more any current problem in todays society. Anyway guys, I need some guidance, some help, some way of dealing with these thoughts and feelings. Because I can not stop thinking about it. It's constantly on mind in some form. I don't know what to do. I know someone out there feels the same way. I tried to google it, I've tried every modern form of connecting minds basically. But I think if anyone would know something, or be able to add to, or anything about this it would be you beautiful people. I've almost got hope that this could actually happen someday, just because of your attitude, and understanding, and love for all things natural. I love each and every one of you. I know I don't say a lot...but I do listen. Sorry for the rant...I had to get it out. Also I don't know if this is in the right category. I don't really know where to post it.

Any Reggae players on here??


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

Awesome man. Well I've been sorta playin about 8 years, but I've always stuck to the basics. Now I'm trying to branch out a little. I play mostly acoustic by myself. No one else around here is really interested in playing reggae. Thats why its hard for me to I suppose. I'm learning how to feel the offbeat. Its hard to sing with for me right now. Whats a good way to practice that? Thanks so much for your help. I really appreciate it.

hiiiiii, i play some reggae and ska. how long have you been playing? do you play acoustic or electric? not that it matters that much. are you familiar with playing off beats? the chord variations isnt that important, just the way you play them, just keep minor with minor and major with major.
Feel free to ask me anything, maybe i can help you

Hey guysI've played guitar for a while for me. But I'm used to playing open chords. Wondering of anyone knows any good ways to learn the chord variations used more in reggae. I've got a few down but I just can't find any good lessons online. Thanks guys.

Hey thanks man. For sure not a bad idea. I may have to give it a try actually. I could see carpet helping knot up a lot too.

hey man I'm also on my first dread journey, and well from what I've experienced so far the back has made lots of progress, like noticeable progress. I've always been a fetal-side style of sleeper haha, but my mattress was old and starting to give me back aches, so i threw it out and took on to the floor haha. I know it doesnt sound too comfortable, but its better than you'd think and it helps your back aches and you have to sleep straight facing forward, because other positions are just uncomfortable, but my point is that this has really helped the progress of the back of my head, got some 20+ very solid dreads at nine months. Kind of out there recommendation but, i've noticed that I've been having faster progress on the back of my head. Kind of out there advice but might help you if you had back problems haha aight luck man

Truehmmmm. I'm torn man. I know a lot of the action happens when you sleepand I can't sleep on my back. Lol, I try but I always end up on my side. I thought that was the problem at first but idk. If i redo it its gonna have to restart right? And theres still a chance it could fall back out again. I did one a few weeks back, its still there and seems to be doing fine though.

its up to you if you want to you can but typicaly the back should dread fastest naturally if left alone more

SE, do you think it would be a bad idea to TnR the back now that its longer? It was much shorter than the front when I first did it.
