I spend a lot of time on my computer. Mostly for work. I am self employed, so It does not matter what sites I decide to visit. I stay logged into this forum. I keep in minimized, but I find myself opening it up every couple of hours. The question is why??? The Telecaster is one of the simplest guitar designs ever made. A plank, a neck, and maybe 2 simple pickups, oh... and a 3 way switch. How much can one read or learn about the guitar and the people who play it. Why should I care? But... I do. Sometimes I go into the sub forums and I read technical info. I don't have a clue what I am reading. I wonder who are these people? Are they scientists? But, I keep reading, feeling unworthy and ignorant. Why do I care that some guy in Alabama got a new Tele? I don't know, but I do. Why do I care that someone in Philadelphia ate chicken and rice? I don't know, but I do. For the most part all of the forums consist of nice people with civil replies. So I know I don't lurk hoping to see WWIII. Why do I keep coming here?
