Can I have all of it?! ... Kidding of course. Ehh, don't worry about sounding good. If you want to play just to wow people, it is not good enough. You should play just for yourself.

You are FAR better than you give yourself credit for. Believe me, I promise. And I dare you to prove me otherwise.

I hope its an April Fools man...

I am on the same path as yours.. I quit long time ago thinking I couldn't really cross that limit and I am never going to be a good guitarist. Please don't give up man. I am even subscribing your youtube channel just to get some inspiration and what fellow guitarists are doing.

Patience is virtue as they say. I am even giving up jobs (work) to learn and become better at this point. But the secret is always practice and PUSH yourself.

Hope you will have some energy after you are back from vacation.

Just think back to why you really started, and how far you've come in guitar. That always makes me feel better when I get frustrated and seem like I'm going nowhere (happens a lot!)

I do hope it's April Fool's too, but if you truly are quitting, I will gladly take the MR5s. biggrin.gif

This better be a joke .. If it is .. then " haha" smile.gif

Iif it isnt, .. You just need to be snapped out of whatever it is you're smokin !!

But if you still wanna satisfy the philanthropist in you, then make it a competition rather than giving it away to anyone who won't understand the value of it.

I still cant believe your post. Snap outta it Tom !!!! laugh.gif

That's a nice april's fool!
Nevertheless, I'll take the Pc i7, the Ovation, the Les Paul Custom, the Axe-FX, the Jazz Bass and the Drum kit. So I can finally play all these instruments for real and don't have to program it.

If this is a prank for the 1st of April, ok, we laughed, if you are serious then you better think twice. We all have those moments from time to time, in which we think we don't progress at all, but as long as we keep working we will always overcome such moments. Think about it... and as a thank you I would accept the Les Paul wink.gif
