Some of the other threads I've been reading lately led me to posting this. I realize in a perfect world we can all be improving on our instruments and we should all strive to be the best we can be, but what's wrong with knowing your limits and accepting who you are as a player? I came to the realization long ago that I'm no virtuoso and I never will be so I've been maintaining my abilities for awhile now. I do want to get proficient with theory and learn how to sight read but other than that I'm happy to be a rhythm guitar player in a rock band that gets the occasional solo here and there. TBH I almost feel a little guilty sometimes because I know I could get physically better on my instrument but I never get around to it. I think the guilt stems from "practice what you preach". I raised three girls and always encouraged them to be the best they can be at anything they do. I digress. Anyone else here feel the same way I do? You are what you are at some point?
