...is to have what you need to do what you want to do. Equipment, technique, theory are all just means to an end. The only question that needs to be asked and answered is: Do I have what I need to do what I want to do?? That's it. I was thinking about another guitar project but then thought to myself "I have enough guitars to do what I want to do" and therefore decided on a recording project. I practice regularly and without bragging, I pretty much have the chops to play what I want to play. There are areas that I will continue to pursue just because I find them interesting, but most, I can play what I want to play. Theory? Well, I understand some of that, imperfectly, and I am working to gain more because there may be things I want to do that would require more of me. Again though, for me the theory is a means to an end. At this point, I really don't have any motivation for much of any musical endeavor other than to be able to do what I want to do musically.
