    We are not our own best judge, because our feelings cloud our objectivity. I used to record all our rehearsals to scrutinize later, and there were times where I thought I was on fire where I sucked. I was sloppy and out of time. There were other times where I thought I sucked and I pretty was awesome, because my impression of my playing was clouded by how I was feeling while playing.

    Quality and entertainment don't always go hand in hand.

    One of the best gigs we ever played was one of our worst performances. Stuff broke down, mistakes were made, song or words forgotten and guitars went out of tune. But they wouldn't let us stop.

    It taught me the general listening public don't know squat about playing music.

    Your friend speaks the truth.

    Guitar enthusiasts are a bunch of t*ssers that think tonewood and saddle material is more important than colour.

    What is the meaning of life? I construct my own meaning. It has a lot of purpose.

    I'm glad I didn't read the whole thread. I would probably be so depressed I might sell some gear. But I didn't.
