I guess I'm reminded how much I play whenever my fingertips hit something glass and they clink. It sounds like they're metal.

how about when you have 3feet of paper with music on them lying spread out around a fairly sized area in a seemingly random gush-of-wind pattern, which to everyone but your self, seems to be frustrating for some reason.

When your grand-daughter asks you can you play "Annie's Theme" cos she has the music for flute and you'd rather cut your own right arm off at the elbow with a rusty penknife than play that bloody dirge........but you look up the tab, transpose it to the key she's playing in and play it anyway....A) cause you love her and B) because you're a guitarist!!!!!

:D :D :D

When you are on vacation without your guitar and you make your friends take you to a music shop so you can "look" around a bit. :D

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- "WOW--What a Ride!"

When your significant other is looking through furniture catalogues and you can't tear your self away from guitar catalogues and you end up with a beige 3-piece suite, blue walls and a dark green carpet.......and there's no money left for even a new set of strings because she took "Yes Dear" as a "yes" instead of a "Don't bother me now, I'm drooling over (Insert guitar of choice here)"

:( :( :(

Not this time though.......!!!!

When you've strung some chords together of a song from your teenage years with a half decent strum pattern and your teenage son leaves his playstation, opens the door and says what was that Dad it sounded like music.

The guitar is all right John but you'll never make a living out of it! (John Lennon's Aunt Mimi)

You know you're a female fingerpicker when you break a fingernail and your first thought is "Dammit, lost a pick!"
