    From time to time, my bud Bill, across the road will being me a disk with stuff on it. Yesterday he brought me one with some video of Iron Maiden, Rush, Clapton, Dio, and a single video of a young Eric Johnson doing Cliffs of Dover. Now he was playing a nice cherry Gibson SG Std, along with a bass player and a drummer. It was about 8 to 10 minutes long and I sat there in my chair watching and listening....

    I had one of my Strats in the stand, as I was rockin' with the Maiden earlier. However after watching Johnson play, I picked up my Strat and put it in the case. Then I put the covers on all my amps and unplugged them. I walked outside and took a short stroll in the woods to think. I've been playing for fifty years now. I then realized I still suck as a guitar player. Half a century and I've learned nothing.:(

    I'm taking up knitting.....

    Don't worry Be crappy

    :wave:Everyone has days when the strings wont tune and the chords are all sour . Having hours of free time to play and jam, I'm happy with my playing most of the time . I still get a kick out of playing over my head with guys that ought to know I don't belong there,:dude: but I always find things to improve . When I have a crappy day, I play punk, and no one-else notices !:laugh2:

    It just re-enforced what I always knew...There was a sign above my work bench at the music shop I did my repairs at. It read" " I can fix 'em a hell of a lot better than I can play 'em" . I believed in truth in advertising. So its much like a good mechanic doesn't win at NASCAR, but he can still drive a car. :)

    Most of the best tech and luthiers I knew were somewhat less than stellar guitarists, with a few exceptions like the late Jimmy Foster.

    If you spend your time playing you can't spend it working on the bench and vice-versa.

    Hartley Peavey learned early on that he was a way better builder than he was a player.

    Ted McCarthy couldn't play any more than Leo Fender.

    another one has to be Robbie Robertson's solo during 'All Along the Watchtower" performed by Rolling Thunder in like 1975. I was there. I couldn't find a u-tube video to post here, so you'll just have to take my word for it that this was a watershed moment of onstage chemistry. (there's a weird mix of metaphor, for you writers out there... *grins)

    I was in the audience, prolly stoned out of my mind... but I've never forgotten that. We were all on our feet. Dylan and The Band, and Joan Baez just offstage, dressed exactly like Dylan and dancing her ass off. Dylan's phrasing when he sang his own song was like a reminder of Jimi Hendrix's version, just a hint of it. And Robertson's solo did that too, just enough Hendrix to pay tribute to the lost genius, without seeming to mock at all, and just enough dynamite to blow the walls out of Chrysler Arena. It was a great version of a great song. Dave Mathews does it really well too. I've never seen The Dead's version.

    I was there for that (of course I was).
    Dicky Betts was boring back then too
    so it didn't happen as he aged.

    I just read Greg Allman's bio - and he trashes Betts!

    You dislike of him is well-founded!

    Speaking of Thunder. I woke this morning and can't get the thunderous Young Man blues out of my head that THE WHO did way back in my youth.
