    Yup, you've got to get yourself a livestock management technician outfit.

    Man that right hand is showing some serious attitude, and the left almost plays itself. That was so cool. I'm rarely impressed by the DIY clips I hear, but yours in the OP was a knockout. Power and good taste. You don't need a million notes, just the right ones played right. Wish you lived around here.

    That is really nice of you to say most people like things but saying so is somehow a sign of weakness .

    After spending years on the left hand , learning every technique known to man trying to be good at everything , i realized my right hand could not keep up . I stopped playing many years , after building a few great guitars i decided to give it a go so they say , and reinvented the way i play and limit my self to specific things i like and stay in my box ,first i realized that the most agile and active part of my body was under used to hold a pick . Then i had to find i way to make it sound the way it dose in my head , i usually practice unplugged on my electric , it would work unpluged to some point but once in the amp there was no way to reproduce how it sound unpluged plus i wanted some overdrive it sounded so bad ... bottom of the line american tele and strat could not do it .

    My sound and equipment changed to accommodate my playing , guitar wise i built a guitar with the 1 inch thick neck and string trough tele bridge and titanium saddles it brings out the acousticness and note separation needed to play all those simultaneous lines.

    I found my old valco for the single purpose it help a lot and Roadhouse pickups gets me here , not to forget countless hours of practice over the last 2 years.

    Ok, nice! Your playing is great. BTW I could send you plenty of Dallas Cowboy hats because nobody from Dallas will wear them anymore...well, at least not in public... Stay with the Fender hat and belt buckle!! The French style turtleneck is as country as anything in Nashville these days so you're good there too, oh, and, if you own a Vespa you will fit right in!!!!....

    I don't know why my thread was moved , it can be argued that its not at the right place but while it was in bad dog cafe it got replies and comments and some people enjoyed the playing at the exact moment the thread was moved it died...

    What dose it mean ?
