You might just have some really raw strings, or apply a lot of pressure when you slide then.

I don't know any strings that are -silent- but I use coated strings and they're easier on my fingers and don't produce quite the same sound when sliding up and down the neck.

I dunno, I always seem to hear sliding even in master-level acoustic recordings.  But yeah, maybe less pressure?

Powerful art gives me a feeling like vertigo.

It sounds okay on the higher notes, but then when I get to those big baddies on the upper row it sounds horrible. Letting up much more loses the sound I want though. Demonstration

That's an unavoidable side effect of those fat strings being coiled and textured. That does sound somewhat pronounced though, so maybe try out the coated strings and see if they sound better for your ear?

Are they new strings? New strings always have that *twang* sound that takes a while to go away.

The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

Fighting the urge to pick up Farming Simulator off of Steam and just spend forever being a farmer and killing time. I think it might be relaxing.

D-Man, you can't fool me.  I've seen "Conan" and "In the Name of the King."  I've played Fable.  I know what happens to "farmers."  You're just baiting raiders and barbarians so you can kick some ass.

Glad this isn't only me. Really awesome art also gives me this feeling. Especially fantasy type epic-scale landscapes.

Me and Sook, we be mates.

This is hilarious because this is my exact plan once Life is Feudal gets to a point I want to play it on the development end.

Max out skills. Build a small little farm in the middle of nowhere. Spend my days farming and rolling nubs who come along thinking they can take me out and raid my farm.

Right now it is in my trash bin of "Great ideas that are going to kick ass if they ever actually come out and don't get ruined during development and sidetracked from their original idea.".

For example, they have already taken out directional parrying and are now going with more of an Assassin's Creed style combat system instead of a Mount and Blade combat system.

Still, I'm holding out a faint hope.

If Taleworlds would get their act together and just produce the M&B MMO everyone wants they would be an actual contender on the MMO market.

They have done everything on the PVP front right. They fit a niche in that regard no other developer in any other game has been able to duplicate despite their efforts.

That is why games like Darkfall, Life is Feudal, and Mortal Online all marketed originally with things like, "Mount and Blade style combat.".  Then they all realized they couldn't pull it off and it all got changed along the way during development. That or their version of it took so long to get right that by the time they did, they had jaded their playerbases with their shit-level performance for the years/months prior.

Then again, maybe great developers like that shouldn't produce an MMO.

TES was supposed to be THE next MMO, but they changed so much about it from the single player games that it was a piece of rancid shit by the time it got made. (Granted, Bethesda didn't make the MMO, which probably had a lot to do with it turning out how it did.)
