Guitar Hero

Posted on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 in Uncategorized

I’m turning 50 this week.

I’m not yet fifty — it’s just four days away — but I thought I’d lead you through my journey, and maybe you’ll learn a thing or two that will help you on your journey.

Guitar Hero 

I always wanted to be a guitar player.

I own more than one.
I play (listenably) none.


I cannot play with Carlos Santana‘s cool.
I cannot play with John Butler‘s artistry.

I cannot play with Michael Hedges‘ complexity.
I cannot play with Phil Keaggy‘s passion.

I cannot play with Django Reinhardt‘s originality.
I cannot play with Wes Montgomery‘s vibe.

I cannot play with B.B. King‘s distinctive style.
I cannot play with Robert Randolph‘s charisma.

I cannot play with Jeff Beck‘s timing.
I cannot play with Jimi Hendrix‘s mastery.

And, since I paired all those up let me conclude this list with Rodrigo y Gabriela‘s cohesion.

But, thankfully I can play them, and so can you.

I may not be much of a musician, but I know good ones when I hear them.

Enjoy the links!

  1. Thanks!

  2. You’re welcome!
    Have a fav?

  3. Scott, I can’t play like any of them either. Every time I listen to any of them, I just feel like a hack… and I’ve played since 7th grade. So…you’re not doing so bad! 🙂

  4. Thanks Dan!
    For the support, the comment, and the read!
