    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    YouTube should be outlawed!

    YouTube should be outlawed!!!! Well at least in my house it should be...

    I get started and one leads to another and time goes by and I do not get what I should be doing done!!

    BUT it is fun!!

    Wish I could simply play that thing half as well as he does...
    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!

    Hey, with only three strings, it's easier to miss all the wrong notes. (Vaughn's Music Theorem #2: For any given song, there are more wrong notes than right ones.)

    He's great, though, and a hoot to watch. Looked like his stomp box had boot treads compressed into it from years of pounding.

    Fun to watch. Three strings, six strings, 'cept for the numbers I don't know the difference.
    Reminds me, we have a town about 50 miles south of me called Mountain View. It is strong on trying preserve the old ways of the hills, especially the music.
    One day while visiting I sat down to watch two guys with their guitars. One of the guitars was kinda big and I noticed had a lot more strings. He was having trouble with it and finally just handed it to me and said, "Here, will you tune this twelve string guitar for me?"
    Me? I know less about things musical than I do things electrikal. I couldn't tune a one string guitar.
    Dunno if he ever got it tuned.
