This would be a good time to remind you all of this old book: Zen Guitar

That happens to nearly everyone at some point smile.gif Don't let it get you down. Instead, use it, hold on to it. Let it fuel your fire to practice, practice, practice!!! As time goes by, the good and band will impact you a pinch less. But it can be really hard at first to spend so much time and then get a crap review. I hear ya. sad.gif But again, push through it, the next time, you'll be better smile.gif

We played a great dance gig on Friday night where the band seemed to be playing really well. Audience reaction was great. But in a newspaper story on the event the next day, someone commented: "the band, apart from the lead guitar, was together and in-sync." Of course, who is the lead guitar? You guessed it. That just killed me. I don't know who this person is, what they know about music, etc., etc.. But I have to confess it hurt my always fragile guitar ego -- got into my head. Anyway, it got me thinking: has something like this happened to any of you? What do you do with it? Perspectives appreciated. Thanks.

The idea is that you can't make everybody happy, so just be bold, practice, write music and do your thing as best as you can at every moment in your evolution. Nothing else matters .. as James and the crew would say biggrin.gif
