im pissed that no one but other guitarists know how to apreciate how hard is something so it turns out i can play sweeps and shred all day and people will fall asleep and if i suddently play some easy GnR solo or the nothing else matters solo people pee themselves

plus tapping and playing with the whammy is more impressive than most things lol

I'm 42 and seem to be getting worse at everything I do. Except my profession, I seem to be finding the best balance between knowledge, skill and caution. Other than that, I'm in a state of semi-managed decline. wink.gif

I want a new guitar, but I haven't got the money yet. The guitar I have now is getting on my nerves more and more. On some frets the notes are just 'dead' they don't sound out one bit, no matter how hard I push in the fret sad.gif Also, I'd like a tremolo that actually works, and that keeps the guitar in tune. I turned on the bridge as hard as I can, and it still goes out of tune like there's no tomorrow.

The amp in the practice room also annoys the hell outta me, so I wanna get my own as soon as possible. Haven't got the money for the either... You can hear the sweet (white) noise of the sea when it's on, even when I'm playing sad.gif

Annoying headache - day 3 and counting...
It commenced after trying to study in the library, but after 5 hours of continuous drilling from roadworks just outside the window I was sitting next to I decided that I'd had enough. The only problem is the drilling in my head hasn't stopped. Woe is me

I was sick last week, had some kind of flu (not the H1N1...) with high temperature and all this. I'm already at work again, but I still feel very tired and can't wait to start working out and jogging again. It's really annoying to feel so exhausted all day.
Yesterday, I wanted to record myself playing the Offspring Style Riffs Medley Lesson, and in one take, while everything went pretty well, the phone rang...the next take was okay, but when I listened to it I realised that the sound of the strings was way louder than the sound of the amp...maybe because I recorded everything with my mobile phone and I placed it to close to the guitar.

Alright, this isn't really pointless, but I still gotta say this aloud:

I don't know what the heck I'm doing. I'm supposed to be studying hard so that next year I can get to the med school. But I've been oversleeping lately and I don't know why, but I've missed lots of classes because of that. I don't have much motivation for studying even though I'd like to - being a doctor is my dream and I want to work for it. But it seems that right now I don't have any energy for much anything. I suppose it's because I started working as a telephone salesperson in a VERY competitive company, and I'm thinking of quitting after the 10-day-period, since the job is very heavy and tiring for me - resulting in me being unable to do my homework and oversleeping.

Playing the guitar is about the only thing that really sets me free and lets me do the things I want to. But because of my work and school I don't even have much time to practise, much less to play.

I've got to get a grip.

Today, I received a letter from the tax office. I was happy and thought "Ah, according to my calculations (and the ones of my tax program) I should get 400 Euros back!" Instead, I have to pay another 400 Euros to them! I really wonder why I worked a second job last year next to my first, where I got paid badly and now I even have to pay some more taxes!

My favourite socks... They shrunk in the wash yesterday sad.gif

Also: I really dislike my job.. I'm working at a 24/7 gas station/fastfood store, and in a month there's this 17 days long annual "End of studies" period.. Where every senior student (and probably a few younger tag-alongers tongue.gif ) drink and have fun.. I'm all up for that, hadn't it been for the fact that I'M the usual night shift guy who has to cook for these people........... I need a new job sad.gif

I hate realizing that when I finally really wanted to learn playing guitar I decided to have 2 kids. I love my kids just no time to play.

And when I do I get about 3 hours a week right now..

I worked 15 hours today on a little side-job, and drove 6 hours home from Miami....And the pay is TERRIBLE!

I'm unemployed

I have no health insurance

I have no dental insurance

My car insurance is up tomorrow and I cant afford a new term

I'm poor

I spent $600 to get my license back which was suspended without me knowing

Car insurance is trying to pin a $605 bill on me, Which is crazy...

I'm still poor

I can't do frontflips
