Guitar.

Sometimes I really love the guitar, other times I hate it. Lately, I feel like I’m in a rut. I’ve long had issues with rhythm and I don’t think I’ll ever get it right. I have this tendency to speed things up.

Today I was playing, and I was tempted to put my guitars up on Ebay and walk away from this lifetime hobby of mine for good. I’ve been playing for years, yet I’ve never had the enjoyment of playing in a band. So, if I am just an audience of myself, what is the point?

I’ve had so many disappointments over the years. So many “well, sorry, you’re not what we’re looking for” type situations. I used to delusion myself into thinking that they were wrong, but now I realize, that I’m just not that good. So it only took me like 15 years, but I guess I’m just not meant to be a musician.

    yer talkin gibberish. playing guitar is a lot like excercise. the more you do it…the more you want to do it and the better you get.

    Well, I’ve been having these monthly jams, which has been great, but today I faced the reality that I’m really not that good. I go through times when I play for hours and hours weeks in a row, and then I can go sometime without really touching the guitar.

    At times it is very satisfying, but right now, I’m going through one of those times of frustration.

    The faster you play, the better you are.

    Just follow Nixon’s advice: “Never give up. Never, never, never, never!”

    Well, unless your guitar can make a pretty penny. For some reason my family would resent me if I sold mine.
