I've played guitar and bass now for almost 30 years, damn time flies, I think I'm fairly good but not as good as I'd liked to have been at this stage.
But now I'm not chasing fame and fortune, lol, playing in bands anymore I'm satisfied with my ability, I've mastered rhythm playing but my soloing
lacks....something? What I've never been able to get a grasp on is writing melodies, I can put a rhythm section to a melody, but if only I could
write that unforgettable melody.
I wish I'd took the time to learn piano also, very useful instrument to know.
But neither guitar nor piano compare to playing a classical, or brass, instrument, now they take real dedication to master. I Tried violin once, and
only once. Tried the saxophone for awhile but that's tough to play, and it's loud, no hiding how crap you are lol. Performance anxiety? Forget
But I like guitars, they just look right, right?
