So a friend of mine had a little gig tonight. His friend in the band celebrating 60 birthday I stopped up just for support, the gig was literally 2 minutes from my house. To my surprise the place was packed and I was actually pleasantly surprised by the set they played. With that being said, my friends guitar playing was horrible. I know it's just a bar gig and all but my god. If the vocals are satisfactory (which they were). Are we so low down on the totem pole where it just doesn't matter like Rudy the Rabbit. I love guitar but no one seems to appreciate it and what it takes. But why should they? I guess what I learned tonight is just play for yourself. (Which is not a revelation). Just a reminder. That 22oz IPA was depressing.
