A friend of mine is opening a club. I played my Strat through an 850 watt sound system tonight. I played The Who's "Don't Get Fooled Again." The club was empty of course but it gave me a lot of confidence to get up on the stage and do that. That's the biggest system I've ever played through. I sounded just like Pete Townsend.:D

My guitar teacher is the one opening the club. Sue bought me a rack mounted guitar effects system like the pros use for Christmas. I took it over there so he could show me how to use it. We hooked it up to his house sound.:eek: :D

I don't know. It's just I never thought I'd ever learn to play this damn thing. I've struggled with it for so many years and now, it's all coming together. I'm just tootin my own horn a bit. I still have a lot to learn. I wish I would have started when I was young.

I rarely have much good to say about classic 70s rock but Who's Next was one of the truely great rock albums. Rock on , Reverend!

Bestof luck with the guitar werk, Mike. I think it's worth it.

As I've said, as with my friend John, you can be great and unrecognised. He was a fantastic blues guitarist, and I'm quite sure few know his name. How much you do for what is an interesting question.

Tooting my own horn, too... I'm scratching out Silent Night during the candlelight service at church tonight, and yes it is very cool to play and sing through a real sound system. Wish I could have heard you Mike.
