I'm 52, now, and I don't want to gig anymore. I don't think my bum knee would even allow it. Most of the people I used to jam with have quit playing altogether. I've no urge to build any more partscasters. I never seem to be able to get an electric rig that pleases me, and when I play for enjoyment, I always reach for my nylon string. It's funny, my nylon string has no electronics, I have no urge to change that, and I never feel that I need effects, or amplification. When I play my electric - never satisfied. I think its time to go back to first loves, and get rid of all this crap that seems to only cost money, and leave me unsatisfied. It's hard to do. It's been an imagined part of my identity since I was 15, and I'm actually a pretty good guitarist. Time to change from someone continually auditioning gear, and toys, to someone who just sits happily, and plays. I guess I'm just writing this to convince myself. I've been at this decision point twice before, and always balked, but I think I'm done. I expect a lot of things will be going up on Reverb, and in the classified ads here, very soon. I think the lockdown brought out how much I indulge this hobby, and how little I focus on my actual career. Anyway, I know it doesn't affect anyone here, or anything. I think I just wrote this by way of 'trying it on'.
