I dare to disagree. In my opinion, Andy Mckee's divine beard is the strongest weapon of all.

Great vid smile.gif More than anything else, they key to everything is persistence. Talent alone won't save you. Just keep at it, whatever it is.

What about no talent and just persistence? After the last REC I did I am starting to wonder.
Nice video.

Persistence: Makes me think of John Myung, bass player for Dream Theater.

Mike Portnoy described him as someone who always had a bass in his hands...as if it were a part of his body. He was always practicing for hours on end. John Petrucci said he would call Myung's house and when Myung picked up the phone you would hear a metronome clicking in the background. He was so dedicated. Well today he is considered one of the best bassists alive. Persistence!!

Maybe we should add Django Reinhardt, who lost two fingers in a fire accident, and few years after become best jazz guitarist in the world!

After reading thefireball's post regarding the GMC Never Give Up newsletter, I did a search & came across this thread. I just had to revive it. It was something I needed today! smile.gif

I love it. Sometimes things get frustrating and it pays to not give up. If you never failed then its like you never tried.
