It saved my life. I was 17 years old and had just dropped out of a private engineering school blowing my full ride. In hind sight maybe a year or two off to grow up would have been a good idea. My roommate had the new Who album with that song, played it constantly. After leaving school I bought the album. I had been trying to play guitar for a couple of years at that time, no lessons, self taught. All my friends were in college, I had to take a job as a janitor at the local hospital, things were not good. I turned to my guitar, a black Les Paul copy made by a company called "Bently". Next thing I know I can play the darn thing and I realised I can do anything I put my mind to. Back to college, this time paying the whole shot myself at a state school to be a nurse. My axe has got me through many a rough time. I'm sure it's the same for a lot of you here.

Well congrats Mike, and good luck. That stuff can be brutal - I know. After going through a similar "series of unfortunate events" a few years ago, I wound up in a room with just my acoustic (all that was left when the smoke cleared) writing songs about it. If you have a notion, take a listen to "So Long Baby" and "Cradle To The Grave": ... dID=357126

I don't know your circumstances, but maybe you'll be able to relate...

Funnily enough I've already picked up the accoustic a couple of times for a few minutes and I've been listening to a lot of music this year.

Anyway, Decree Nisi today!

Financial Dispute Resolution hearing on the 20th to hopefully agree the financial split if we don't do it before.

Practice when you feel like it, for best results don't force it.
Keep the faith bro :)

same problem here Mike - financial situation forced me to put my Tele Thinline '72RI and Blues Deville 4x10 up for sale. I am holding on to my Strat and Laney LC15 as I'm still playing, but am thinking about cleaning out the effects pedal drawer as well.

Hope things will get better soon for you and me and we'll be able to give in to GAS again in the near future ;)

>Rico, I think he means your Johnson.

Naw, he's not holding my Johnson.

Hang in there, Mike.

Nothing's wrong with playing alone in the spare room, anyway. I rather like it myself.
