    You're right, I'm thinking of giving it up. Any suggestions for alternatives?

    I read Charlie Chaplin's autobiography recently. He said the hated getting old because "there is no defense against it". For me, I wake up and wonder what's going to hurt today.

    It’s better than the alternative...

    Although, there’s days I wonder about that ^

    Will be 58 this year. Generally, I feel pretty good.
    Arthritis and Carpal Tunnel from 30 years and still going of IT, balanced tension 9s are my new best friend :(:):lol:
    I still have a couple of Teles setup with balanced tension 10s, but the main practice guitar and my "ErgoTele" are setup with balanced tension 9s.

    pain and hard work are the signs that you are still alive.

    I like the extra strength Bayer. I allow myself 8 a week.

    A martini or two a week....

    I'm just glad I can still feel!

    Well, we're all getting older at the same rate. Have a beer and forget about it.;)
