I should turn in my guitar.
LABF is the real deal on this stuff Rho. It is tough realizing how much there is too music and also can be discouraging if you try and compare yourself to other players all the time.
I try to look at it more like a personal journey and less of a competition. The cool thing is most musicians see it same way and won't discourage you by showing you up. Most of them well say something good about your playing, then do what LABF does and try to give some pointers or tips to go a little further.
I love music and try not to get discouraged by just accepting there will always be better players then me. Much better players. But unlike sports where you have winners and losers everyone can win playing music. You may not be able to get rich but you can really get a lot out of it.
If it wasn't for making 1/3 of my living off music I don't think I would be very happy.
So even though LABF takes me to school he does it to pass on knowledge not to show me up. Even though on other subjects we don't get a long so well.
Music is powerful and can bring people together.
