I used to be fairly picky about what I played on and through. I was kinda dependent on certain gear and sounds to play well. I have been on a journey to put all of that behind me ( a long never ending journey). I want to be able to convey my playing through any guitar or amp, with whatever strings/picks, without any effects or not. I figure it's time to put up or shut up. Depend on my technique and musicality only. On anything. Play with no excuses. I'm not there yet, still working on it.
