Subject: RE: Playing an Instrument-Good + Bad Days
Guitars can be REALLY hard to tune on certain days...particularly when it's very humid and hot. The "b" string can drive you nuts sometimes. I have a Yamaha that is an angel...it's almost always in tune...but then, when you least expect it...ARRRRGHH!

Other than that, sometimes things really click and other times not. I always try to do the best I can, but if I'm really having serious trouble in some way (like losing my voice) I pray. If I have to, I go off somewhere like a washroom or outside, and I pray directly and audibly, straight to the source. I acknowledge that I am not alone.

And it works.

I don't know if it would for you, but it does for me.

Anyway, "Life is sad, life is a bust, all you can do is do what you must, you do what you must do...and you do it well. I'll do it for you, ah, honey baby, can't you tell?" - Bob Dylan
