You guys are so into yourself it makes me sick......try something that
will make you stand apart from the thousands that are equal to or
better than you are at sight reading......I just put together a
computer desk with a sliding tray and two ......count em
two.......sliding drawers........in a mere five hours with only 15
parts left over.........
So get the hell off your pedestal and respect an accomplishment worthy
of your respect......and just to stay on topic I rarely hit the low E
string anymore when playing the first position C chord.
Seriously about ten years ago I worked my way through book 1 of the
Berkley school of music guitar course. I really regret not taking it
further or for that matter using what I had learned.....sigh.....I
envy people who can sight read. I made a huge mistake that since then
I have realized its a common mistake that many folk make without being
able to read a note the book one was a pretty scarey looking task to
take on but I kept telling myself that my goal was to make it through
that book.......heres where I get a little wierd I believe because I
set a goal of learning book one I doomed myself to losing the drive to
continue onto book two........make any sense.....??
Sorry for the length of this but to further prove my theory I got
myself hypnotized to quit smoking and I started telling people before
and during my attempt to quit smoking that what the hell if I stop
smoking for X number of weeks I will have made the money back it cost
me to get hypnotized and be even. The exact day that I broke even on
the money part I started smoking again.......
Be careful setting goals or maybe its just something wierd thats just
an affliction to me.......
And then there was the time I said I would eat a mile of this
beautiful womans shit just to get to her
ass......and......ummm.....probably not a good example...
Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved
body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out,
shouting......." HOLY @#$%... WHAT A RIDE!"
