it looks like the amp is finally coming on friday, still not playing.
It's finally here!
I stopped playing for almost a decade post Berklee college of music and a few years of living trying to "make it" while I got a real job, got married, had kids.
Then, I woke the **** up and have been gigging and playing ever since.
Thanks for sharing.
I'm finally finding my way back, I hope.
Today at the store I finally picked up my guitar for the first time in 4 months, cause I needed to try the amp and make sure it was working ok, it was weird but it was also nice, I love how the amp sounds. I'm gonna start playing and I feel happy.
Thanks everybody I really appreciate you sharing your personal stories, it has helped me a lot and it made me feel a lot better knowing that this kind of things happen but also they pass if you let them go.
My old guitar teacher, Eldon Shamblin, took a break from the guitar for World War II. He went at least four years without playing the guitar. Within a couple of weeks of being discharged he got a gig in Leon McAulife's band where he played nine months straight after not playing for the duration of the war. He immediately got a blister under a callous on his left hand that lasted six weeks.
I'm just sharing this story as it is the story I think of every time I try to pick up the guitar after taking a long break.
Were the most expensive words “law school”?
