    Thanks Jimmy! I've reach the musical career pinnacle! I play in a 80s-90s rock band with other old white dudes. It's been a blast!
    If we all threw our problems in a pile, and you saw everyone else's problems-- you'd take yours back.

    Not as expensive as most mid-life crises.

    Happy birthday Len.

    Hahahaha, hereís the rule: Learning to play well is indirectly proportional to your impulse control.

    Haha. That's a good one.

    We've all changed so much since this joint got started. Seriously. Haven't seen a good online shouting match in ages and we don't have any of the preachy stuff about ethics and whatnot cluttering up things anymore. I suppose even a bunch of hillbilly hunters and fisherman could have some impulse control sneak in the back door during all of that change.

    Heaven knows it's happened to me. Example: I haven't shook my fist at somebody while driving in so long I can't remember the last time it happened.

    I was actually making fun of Len's lack of impulse control regarding buying new guitars. He's never met a shiny axe he didn't like.

    Makes me smile.

    I could see the pull of having a nice new one. All shiny and whatnot. Then you see a guy like SRV playing one that looked like it was carried thru a war and dug out of a compost heap. Not sure what that means, if anything.

    Unfortunately I never learned to play anything. Except the drums if that counts.

    If you like SRV, give an ear to Gary Clark, Jr out of Austin. A bit more eclectic but he can hit a lick.

    Ray Wylie Hubbard is more my speed these days. He plays an old ‘59 Martin D-18 once in a while. If I had money to burn, those old ones would strike my fancy.

    Not a fan of Samantha Fish or Sena Ehrhardt. They just donít do it for me. Too ďcontemporaryĒ I guess. I do like a lot of Tab Benoitís work though. He does a good job of getting into the good olí ďdown homeĒ blues that I prefer.

    I saw him live once in a little bar here that used to have a ďblues nightĒ every Wednesday.
