  1. I posted this a couple years ago in another thread. These are quotes from a session by John Knowles during the fall fingerstyle retreat. Every time you learn to do something, learn how to do it somewhere else. Your best work happens when you are working in areas where you 60% know and 40% can’t do yet (this is where adventure happens). Each one of us has a different tolerance for being confused. When I’m working too hard, I put it down and play something I know how to play. When you are learning, there is exploration, new technique, musicality, tempo, expression (you can’t think of all these things at once). It never has bothered me that I can’t do it YET! Tomorrow I will be closer – don’t be discouraged by the barriers. There is no destination, only so far – so far – so far – so far – then they write your obit. Set modest goals and celebrate. You need patience, you need to love it, and curiosity. I play what I love – and work on what I can’t do yet. Chet Atkins (in response to someone saying ‘that looked easy’): ‘It didn’t use to be.’
  2. @Triple-oFishman has been a big supporter of Steve's fall fingerstyle retreat. They have provided a number of nice giveaways the past few years (including a couple amps). Mention that you are part of Steve's guitar community when you contact them - it can't hurt. Good luck.
  3. That song definitely has some confusing lyrics. Check out the following Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_Home_Chicago
  4. Unfortunately, I will be re-installing software in my computer that died last week (but has been resurrected with many lost memories and files). 🙁
  5. Abbey Road has always been my favorite Beatles album. Hard to believe it is 50 years old! Have you seen the new Abbey Road Volkswagen ad (with no Beatles)? The Volkswagen has been correctly parked as well 🙂. Wonder why they didn't duplicate the license plate. More (Volkswagen-related) Abbey Road information here.
  6. Congrats - love that nylon-string sound!
  7. FYI - My 'Sitting at home, alone' percentage is about 75%. 🙂
