That must be nice...

to be in a position to just "throw together" a world tour at any point in your life.. I'm bored: lets do a world tour.. broke: world tour.. need exercise: world tour.. wanna meet babes: world tour..

Totally understand losing speed.. I haven't lost much, if any - yet - but I know its coming.. I just need to find more efficient ways to be faster, when I need to be.. for example, I've NEVER used my pinky finger when soloing, so I could work that in and pick up a 4th finger, which would increase speed, but honestly I've found, over the years, that a solo should be a melody within a melody and speed is only really needed for short bursts.. like a Great White shark.. they can achieve amazing speed, but only for short burst, but those bursts are deadly..

I've actually been playing quite a bit the last year, but only at the house.. Singer and drummer have pretty much abandoned me (they are together in another band) so about to try and put together a band that brings an A+ show with occasional bursts of deadly speed.. but, mostly just cool tunes I've written over the years.. Its time to do that and this time I'm not going to be forced into doing stupid stuff I don't wanna do..

I know you'll be ready for your show in June.. I'm already getting ready and don't even have the band put together, so I know by showtime I'll be firing on all cylinders.. I know you will be, too.. smiling smiley

Friendship is like peeing your pants.. Everybody can see it, but only you can feel the warmth..
