that it shows). Last time I played out was about 3 years ago, at an
acoustic folk festival....the first time in a long time and the stage
fright didn't end when the playing started! It reminded me of why I
haven't played in public for years. Seems like even when I was
playing regular the nervousness just got worse instead of better.
I'm one of those guys that's been watching this group occasionally
for years, maybe going back to around '95. Like others have
mentioned, I've noticed in the last year how things are going
downhill here. It seems like several mentally ill or disturbed
individuals are fouling the waters and driving away the folks that
used to have some valuable input. Whatever happened to #####, for
instance? Looks like now 60% of the posts are by the same kind of
sickos that have wrecked many other groups that used to be worthwhile
in varied fields of interest. I was especially annoyed to see Mulay's
disease is spreading from aga. Then you have Romeo Rose who should be
locked up in a padded cell (and probably will be soon, if he lives
that long) and all the flame wars these guys start every time they
appear. Really too bad but it seems the inmates are taking over the
asylum, here & everywhere. Just like the rest of the world, I'm
Just my 2 cents....an observation without solutions. Well, I have some
suggestions, but they'd just pollute the group even more, heh-heh....
I've been playing for about 45 years now (started later tho--at 15).
Mostly rock/blues and sub-forms derived therefrom ;-)
As others have observed, the asylum tenants seem to come and go. The
influx from alt.guitar.amps is fairly recent.
As far as I'm concerned, the best strategy is to swamp 'em with on-topic
