  1. It sounds like you handled the band situation well Mark. Good luck in dealing with that guitarist. Given the fact that he ends up sincerely apologizing afterwards, I wondered if he has bipolar disorder; if not perhaps he just needs to focus on anger management.

    Down sizing.

    Less is more, to quote a cliche, and in this case it's working for you. It's always interesting to read your inner meditations. As for myself, I live in 2 rooms, each 12' X 15'. In a space that small, you don't keep anything you don't use. I've been getting rid of books and putting them on kindle. I am replacing CDs with MP3s. I have 5 guitars and that's almost too many.

As a musician, we ought to protect our fingers. Plus, we've got things now called the T
  4. I'm with ya, Doug. Love the playing, not so much the practicing. It's a constant challenge but the rewards are great. Thanks for the reminder!
  5. Welcome Bluwoodsman This is a really great group, and happy to have you aboard. There's a solution to your quandary as to whether you should get a G&L or a Heritage. The answer is you need one of each. They're like apples to oranges, very different, each will add something different to your tonal pallet. If money's an issue, buy used, you can get great deals on Heritages.
