I'm sure there have probably been other posts like this so bear with me...Last few gigs just were not much fun. A hell of a lot of work for very little enjoyment. I started playing in bands when I was 12 years old. We knew 2 and 1/2 songs at a junior high dance. I think someone on the football team threw something at us. It was a start of a long trip. I'll be 62 this year and the last two gigs...while everyone (except the bass player) played well it just didn't happen for me. I still practice hours a day and take lessons with Larry Coryell who lives nearby. The lessons are amazing. I'm still into learning after a degree at Berklee, Classical guitar at Aspen...I would say I'm getting old but I love the instrument and can't learn enough...but the band thang has just gotten old...and sad.
