I don't want to jam with anyone, I don't want gigs with the country band I'm in, and I don't really want to play at church anymore after four years. Since the spring of this year, I've totally lost my motivation. Health has been a big part of it. A toothache last July led (from one dentist to another) to finally osteomyelitis in the jawbone. That resulted in the extraction of two of my 32 original teeth in October, plus removal of a lot of jawbone. I go back tomorrow to see if I need a graft or whether I can consider implants (which I cannot afford) a bridge, or a partial. Meantime, my singing sounds terrible. My tongue goes into the gap in my teeth at random, and my enunciation is nothing like it was a year ago. I feel like I'm just going through the motions, phoning in everything I do. I'm looking into ways to sell off all but maybe one Tele and my acoustics, and most of my amps. If you have considered retirement from music, and people depend on you but you feel you are no longer providing what they need...how do you tell them you're done?
