Perhaps you were fantasying about the pretty woman on the old television commercials for St. Pauli Girl beer.

As far as being "tone deaf", don't let that stop you. I have a friend here who has no clue about notes on the guitar, yet he gets an enormous satisfaction when he plays in his rhythmic purveyance.

As I mentioned, the mere fact that you are making "music" on an instrument is what is of value. You do not need to perform for other people. The most important factor is to play a musical instrument.

Crazycal, you did learn to speak. In the same way, you can learn to express yourself with a musical instrument.

Please consider the amazing effect it can have to your well being.

Re: Music!

Jeez Cal-I've seen 7 out of 10 of your choices!

My all time favorite. Frank Zappa. Saw him 5 times-have at least 50 of his albums. (Or whatever you call it nowadays when its on a phone-ipod thumbdrive etc.)

Re: Music!

Ahhhhhh! Love Zappa's instrumentals. My favorite collection of his is the "Shut up and Play yer Guitar" box set. And another one simply entitled "Guitar". Here's one of his typically goofy songs with the requisite musicianship: .

For some reason, I never got into Zappa. Not sure why.

I love Zappa, wearing my Zappa plays Zappa t-shirt right now...

I feel that his work will be studied years from now the same way that Mozart and Bach have been... Incredible composer...

Re: Music!

Nice guitar pic.

Ozzy's song, Crazy Train, is a great example of Randy Rhoad's guitar talent. Too bad Randy did not last long. He was great.

Re: Music!







Here is my other mandolin on the left. It has an electrified bridge. I use a Seymour Duncan pickup booster pedal. It sounds great. The mandolin on the right is a friend's of mine.



Here is a video of when I sat in with a band. I used my auto wah wah pedal.

Re: Music!

Some friends who used to get together weekly to jam. We did improvisational music.



My first little accordion. I wore it out.



My amp.



My 41 year old Guild guitar. Yes. I did paint it.
