LMAO. Now this read like the Penthouse Forum letter for TGP! In all honesty, there are naturally gifted players in every town. I knew 3-4 in my town alone, and no, they never went anywhere with music. But they could shred and play things like Eruption and Crazy Train note for note within the first year of picking up the guitar. My college roommate could learn any song by ear and was a monster shredder as well as a finger style classical player with only two years of playing.
