It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.

so many of them are true to me,but, the #1 thing is that I can not practice in front of the computer or I waist to much time reading and not practicing
so it is a cup of coffee and a comfortable spot in chair

Haha, I used to practice at my computer, too, because of GMC. biggrin.gif Nowadays I just try to get the basic feel for lessons and then practice them - not on the computer, since it always distracted me.

But yeah, I'm happy when playing... I can't put it into words, it's something where I'm at home, something very simple yet very deep and complicated to me. I love music and I love playing the guitar - if I had a shot as a pro I'd do it any day. Nothing compares to the love I feel towards music. I don't need heaven after dying - just let me play as long as I live. biggrin.gif

Haha, these options made me laugh ! laugh.gif Excellent stuff..

I find that my mind gets too paranoid about not being able to do the thing I'm practising, so I'm moving between telling my mind to shut up and shut off, and looking out of the window and seeing if any nice cars are going by. 99% of the time it's just a lorry. dry.gif
