    Real rockers play with oven mittens. That's the only way to play really hot guitar licks.

    No! Guess he had ugly shoes since he didn't gaze at them.

    Collecting instruments is the best way to be a cool cat without using theory (or playing). Seems to have become the new guitarist ethos...

    Joe Pass is great no matter what he plays.

    He and Kenny Burrell just amaze and astound me.

    No...not knowing jack about music is the guitar player's ethos. It's all about da fealz and da toanz.

    There's still hope. Some of us are not total lost causes. I used to be the guy who knew nothing about music, but through the years I have learned quite a bit. I don't claim to know it all, but at least I'm still learning and keeping an open mind. Seems like every now and then something clicks and the lightbulb comes on.

    I like cold beer, and long walks on the beach.

    Well, more like short walks really.

    Ah, who am I kidding? I just wanna sit my arse in the beach chair and drink the beer.
