thanks to my bro erwin "whiteaxxxe" vom berg over in deutschland...

 

 

#10 You wonder if Stairway To Heaven will ever go away.

 

#9 You now believe that your parents were right, Jimi Hendrix was just to damned loud.

 

#8 Students ask you for an up-to-date song. You bring in Smoke On The Water.

 

#7 Watching MTV to stay on top of things lasts about two minutes.

 

#6 It seems like only yesterday you could whack a G7sus4 and everyone knew it was the chord at the beginning of a Hard Days Night.

 

#5 You are the only one who doesnt ask for the guitar while sitting around a campfire.

 

#4 Everyone raves about your phrasing. Not a word about your speed.

 

#3 Your car stereo is constantly tuned to an all news station.

 

#2 When students mention scream-o music, you think they are talking about James Brown.

 

#1 You are doing what you love, and still waiting for the money to come.

7: MTV...not

 

6: still can in my neck of the woods

 

5: will never turn down a chance to play, even at a campfire

 

4: my problem is knowing when to stop

 

3: my radio is off and i play CD's

 

2: I don't think of JB

I must submit a request to move #3 to #1...and I admit it's because I don't listen to the newer stuff anymore...even worse, I only listen to news talk radio now... :facepalm:

 

ps. have an old bud that I heard on stage do his rendition of Stairway while singing the words to Gilligan's Island? still can't figure out how he did it?

Take care, Larryz

#10 Whaaa? You don't likey?

#9 My parents thought THE BEATLES were too damn loud!

#8 I ask THEM for an up-to-date song

#7 I don't even last 2 minutes

#6 You mean there's people around that DON'T know what song it is?

#5 Guilty

#4 Guilty

#3 Guilty

#2 Never heard the term before...

#1 Still doing what I love but realized long ago that my wife requires much higher maintenance than what most guitar players/instructors can afford. Yeah there's a few that make the bucks... but kinda like winning the lottery... it certainly isn't based on just talent. Lot's of incredible talent out there starvin...
