    In the end it is all about fun and being happy.
    Without you can´t enjoy.
    People hear that.
    All what really counts being a serious musician (if you want to be) is talent.
    More is more.

    Life is good,

    Lol... unintentional[?] word choice in a thread that's drifted into rubber glove and colonoscopy jokes!

    But have you written a song about the experience?

    For some very good musicians, I'm not convinced it has anything to do with being happy. Ever hear of the Blues?

    All I know is that the notebook with kittens on the cover is still working. Got the bones of another song together.

    Time is a huge factor for me, but also
    - confidence
    - discipline
    - knowledge
    - skill.
    ...and gaining 3 out of those 4 others requires...time...

    And, yes, A Room Of One’s Own is a great book.

    I wouldn't presume to know what's in their hearts.

    Many people with genuine passion and belief in their chosen vocation find the time to do what it is they do. Sometimes at great cost.

    Yes - assuming the time is productive, the more you practice the better you will become.
    And...spend less time surfing the net and more time practicing your guitar. That's the tough one.

    hmm.....we can send men to the moon, but a doctor figures the best way to administer pain medication is UP YOUR BUTT? how about a syringe?
    I guess I hate it because as a child they took my temperature with a rectal thermometer, and I hated it and fought as hard as I could. it always took four or five people to hold me down because I fought like a wild cat.

    A high tolerance for a short supply of folding money is an asset.

    It's the fastest route I believe, and avoids anaesthetising the rest of your body.

    I guess that's why I avoid doctors at all costs. I literally will not go to the doctor unless I am actually dying. like when my appendix burst a few years ago. three days later the pain was so bad and I was pretty much gonna bite it so I went.

    Listen I'm not saying I enjoyed it, but given that it's said that the pain from kidney stones is like childbirth only worse, I'll take the finger...

    I have a friend who was driving a cab in NYC until he got to sing a Chevrolet jingle. He’s never owned a home, no kids, a succession of women but never married. He bought his first new car when some English band Erasure had a minor hit with a horrible version of one of his songs.

    He’s still making records and touring but I doubt any of you know his work. Cliff Eberhardt. I’ve posted his work here before. He’s very talented and has been honing his craft since he was about 14. I’ve known him since high school.

    That's exactly what my urologist said about himself just after telling me to bend over!
