You could just learn to be happy with the fact that you have the talent to play music and have many people enjoying the music you play. I dunno.

I think you have to drink those egg protein things... and eat small mammals (i.e - moles, voles, and lemmings'). Meh to much work for me, but you! You have way more potential! So get to work!

Too late! Bob Dylan's already beaten you to it!

Hear! Hear!

I think maybe your approach jason (if we are to take it seriously) can be a necessary but not sufficient condition. The question is: Are you sure?

You can achieve your goal step by step.

Step 1: Identify and locate the world's greatest musician.
Step 2: Kill him or her.
Step 3: Go back to step 1.

Remember to come out of the loop when you've achieved your goal.

Alternatively, why not just be the best you can be? Everyone will respect you more for it, especially all those better musicians, grateful to have been spared.
so you're saying i should learn to rap?

I merely wish to be a fantastic guitarist.

I think I am setting my goals too low.

Cheers,

Max

He called it first, and in my house that means he is now the greatest musician of all time.
unfortunately time is an illusion.

I had two points - writing emotional songs and choosing an appropriate name that reflects your musical style / branding.
Here are the examples.
- Metallica for heavy metal (the name tells you what the style is)
- Nirvana for grunge / blues (emotional songs)
- The Eagles for easy listening / blues (an emotional song about tragedy)
- Johnny Cash for country / blues (an emotional song about a movie)

These days, many new bands are being encouraged to play country, because that's where the money is right now.
(I don't like country, except for a few awesome songs)

My prediction is that Nellie Fertada will last a very long time. She is a white chick in a rap band.
This prediction is based on the "multi-culturalism" trend. I can't stand her music, but it is extremely "politically correct".

As for the "best musician of all time"

Being the greatest musician of all time is overrated. Think about it: in all likelyhood you'll be so far ahead of your time that you'll end up having to live on stuff dug out of the dumpsters and your talent won't be recognized until you are very much dead. :D

Personally, I just keep striving to be a better musician than myself. :)

LOL, guess he'll just have to be happy with being known as the "Hendrix" of the Dobro

Exactly, try an awsome guitarist from the 60s who influenced Beck, Page etc called Davey Graham. Who you say? Faza's point!

Man I have low goals, I just want people who hear me play to say "hey thats pretty good" :)

The greatest musician is prob someone locked away, playng 20 hours a day that nobody ever heard of....now if you mean the most successful musician...thats a diff question.

I havn't found my tone yet, and I have no mojo....but I'm working on it :)
