I spend 2-3 hrs. a day practicing the guitar. A whole lot of that time is spent surfing between licks. I unplugged the Cat 5 cable from my computer this morning for 1 hr. and really sat down to practice. I feel like I really accomplished something. cool.gif

Do you have anything you'd like to confess to GMC?

Nothing to confess as I practice the way I like to. Nothing to prove to anybody nor to myself. If I spend my practice time surfing on the web for new songs or lessons then it's not a lost of time and as far as I enjoy it I don't really see the problem in it. smile.gif

PS: but I wouldn't tell my friends I practice guitar 2 hours a day in that case wink.gif

Hmmm, we don't have to pay for any absolvation here I hope??? laugh.gif

1) I can't remember any text or name, not even on my own songs, or people I met one day ago.
2) I'm too lazy to clean my house, I rather pay someone else to do it while I'm playing guitar.....
3) I'm cheating while playing over chord changes, since I always seems to play some dimished stuff, no matter what chord it is....
4) I use to tell my business associates that I'm really busy - but I'm not, only with writing songs and play.
5) I like only blondes with long hair.
6) I once sleeped in a mega-bass speaker on a discoteque in Denmark before a guard large as a house carried me out.
7) I LIE far too much. Therefore one of these statements is false. Can anyone guess which ???

a ) I often sit in my office and play guitar when people think I'm busy working.
B ) Sometimes when I play I wish for someone to send me an instant message so I can have an excuse to put my guitar down.
c ) Sometimes when I play I get annoyed when people send me instant messages because I have to put my guitar down.
d ) When I start getting frustrated, I restring a Floyd with heavier gauge strings than it had before so I can pretend that I'm doing something very important that will change my playing as soon as I'm done.
e ) I sometimes believe I am better than I am.
f ) I often believe I'm worse than I am.
g ) In order to stay interested in guitar, when my playing isn't improving, I buy another guitar. I own a lot of guitars. sad.gif
h ) I sometimes use a new guitar as an excuse for my playing.
i ) When it comes to truss rods and bridges, I can never leave well enough alone.
j ) I have actually taken a set of files to my nut. wink.gif

Cheers!

... man, we are getting old Monte !!! ... LOL
For years i used to sleep an average of 4, max 5 hours per night ... enough extra time to practice a few hours in the morning or at night and still be able to manage a busy working schedule.

Lately i feel tired all the time and way to often i decide to take nap instead to just grab the guitar and practice ... well aware, energy would be back if i would do so.

GMC needs a "Wake up service" feature .. biggrin.gif

How could You guess that? Ofc. I like ALL women. They may come in different colours, styles and attributes, but as long as they reminds me only a tiny little bit of Michelle (or Cameron), they are OK. tongue.gif

I don't practice as much as I should!
I play a lot, but not practicing, just playing for the love of it smile.gif

I suck at writing lyrics (serious ones)...

My soloing is really low/mediocre, but I'll live biggrin.gif

I spend too much time tweaking sound and fiddling around with my equipment instead of actually playing (but I like it)..

I enjoy Bon Jovi, Journey, Roxette and Lionel Richie (Feels good to get that out in the open...) laugh.gif
