    I just put new strings on my guitar.

    I haven't picked it up in months.

    This is the implement of rock in question:




    What should I jam on while I'm breaking in the new strings?

    Hmm?

    Jeez, let a guy warm up first. Actually, I'm so in awe of Jimi's Berkeley performance of that song that I've never even tried to learn it.

    I'm rocking out the intro to COME ON Pt. 1 now

    Neil, that guitar is sick.

    I had a Dean Flying V, same color.

    Thanks, Frank.

    Holy crap, I am realizing two things tonight:

    1. I need to practice more.

    2. I suck.

    Only good guitarists say that. Bad guitarists are constantly making excuses.

    I've heard plently of bad guitarists say that.

    And they were right.

    Nice guitar!

    There's nothing better than those first few times playing with a new set of strings and freshly lemon oiled fretboard. Totally effortless, sustain forever, and tone, tone, TONE! It's heaven I tells ya.

    Really? All i've ever heard from bad guitarists is, "I'm breaking in a new set of strings, I just had the truss rod adjusted, this guitar is new, I'm just learning this song, my hand is cramping, etc."

    Do you suck, Frank?

    Some days, I think I suck. Some days, I think I'm OK.

    Today, I've been listening to Tommy Bolin.

    Now, I think I suck...

    Re: I just put new strings on my guitar.

    I'm trying to build up the dexterity in my left hand.
    So, I've been crunch-chording at all hours of the day for the past week.
    Can you say "Rock You Like A Hurricane"?
    BTW, I SUCK. (And I've been a guitar player for 22 years.)

    Frank doesn't suck, he SUKES.

    After sucking it up last night, all I can say today is, "I got blistahs on me fingahs!"

    Guess what, Tolchie? MySpace works for me too. You can decide for yourself. I'm in your left speaker. Chris Hill is on the right.

    I played a big part in writing all them tunes. And check out the song "More On Than Off". I wrote that shit.

    I don't waste my time with cover songs or writing songs for the masses, so it ain't for everyone. And I like it that way.

    If I could ever make it to Portland, I'd be all over a jam with the West Coast Doomers.
