post up man we all enjoy new stuff over here. Taking the piss is when you put too much credit to yourself (lol e.g. exotic scales in C Major)

if someone doesn't like what you post he is free not to look anyway

keep them coming ... :)

Hey,

I agree with the thoughts of " just do your thing." I have been into the blues for quite some time, but I am always trying out different things. Whether they are jazz lessons or hard rock, or whatever else is out there, I love to give everything a rip. So post your work and I'm sure I will not be the only one checking things out.:cool:

Don't want people to think I'm taking the pissNow normally I'd expect Zatz to be the first to ask about this little phrase, but it looks like I'm the one who's now at the disadvantage. I assume from context this means something like 'being a braggart' or 'showing off'. I've seen it a few times here at the site, and find it...well, intriguing. Some help from the Brits in the crowd?

In any case...welcome! If you do take the time to post up powertabs, etc., it also is helpful to make the tab part of a broader discussion--what you had in mind, what you did, etc. I think folks appreciate 'cool licks', but we also appreciate anything you can say about how they came about. Get it?

Bongo Boy,

Now I'll be the second one to ask ;)

As a non native english speaker who's been desperately trying to learn this very foreign language I would think that phrase should mean 'be offended' or 'to have not enough guts' but the context suggests it more likely stands for Bongo's guess.

Curious to know the actual meaning. I hope the fellow admins and mods will forgive me using iBreathe resources for learning english ;)

Zatz.

"Taking the piss" has a few meanings:

1) Teasing someone because of some misfortune or condition e.g. "Four Eyes" for someone with spectacles.
2) Leaning too much on someones good nature e.g. "the second time he asked to borrow a fiver (5) I thought that was taking the piss"
3) Patronising or time wasting.
4) An obvious untruth.

Piss by the way is vernacular for urine. "Pissing about" is generally not doing any useful. Pissed is used in the same way as in the US although it's a little ruder over here. None of these are used in polite conversation.

Now, the best English phrase I ever heard is a related West Midlands one:

"get your bum out of the window" - meaning, your having a laugh (i.e. don't try and take the piss)

Should we have an etymology forum?

The history of words and language. The bit in the dictionary where it goes on about where the word came from etc. In English dictionaries this seems to be more emphasised because the language is not a language but lots of bits of other languages learned by the grunting ancient britons from their more sophisticated invading european neighbours to create one confusing impossible to learn properly, no rules, language

We got off thread, but I forgot a very important distinction.

Pissed Off (UK) = Pissed (US)
Pissed (UK) = Drunk...

And, to the original poster, normally things here stay on thread. All lesson ideas and exercises and stuff are welcomed here (powertab as usual format).

Ashc,

thanks for the insight. The original poster will be shocked to see such kind of a feedback :D
