******The secret to being a great musician is 90 % persperation & 10 % insperation......An amature musician will practice until they get it right, while a professional musician will work, think & improvise until they know it'll never be wrong, no matter what variation they choose to play on the night.******
You may go, leave, or quit if you wish......but remember this. Walk away now, and you walk away from your craft, your skills, your vocations. leaving the next generation with nothing but re-cycled digitally re-sampled techno grooves, quazzie synth rhytmn, pseudo songs of violance ridden gangster rap, acid pop, Pre recorded backing tapes, Midi files and simpering saccharine souless slush. Depart now, and you will forever seperate yourselves from the vital musical legacy's of Robert Johnson, Willy Dixon, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Memphis Slim, Blind Boy Fuller, Louie Jordan, Little Walter, Big Walter, Sunny Boy Williamson 1 & 2, Otis Redding, Jackie Willson, Elvis Presley, Albert & Freddy King, Bob Dylan, Stevie Ray Vaughan & Jimmi Hendrix.
Turn your backs now, and you'll snuff out the fragille candle that is Blues, Rock, R & B, & Soul. And when those flames flicker and expire......the light of the world will be extinguished, because the music that has moved mankind through eight decades leading up to the millennium, will wither and die on the vine of abandenment and neglect.
