      OOOhhhhh. No you di-ent!!!

      Bad form, man! I use to be a pretty good player. I play about as much now in a year as I use to play in week. I can't even remember any of the songs from the ten sets I use to know when I was gigging!!! A friend heard me play about two years ago and said "You sounded like a bad imitation of yourself." Harsh. But I took it as a compliment because it meant I once DID have a groove of my own that was valid and recognizable. Still... Do I want you guys to hear me play now? Not so much.

        Nosaj is cool! I'm not scared, anyway. Just too lazy to learn something new & too broke to buy junk that would make it easier.

          Hah, I can't much play anything more complex that Credence Clearwater. But when I toured with the big horn band, our guitarist had all those mile-a-minute Terry Kath solos down pat. But one day I was tuning a guitar and played a bit of Funk 49, a very basic lick from the James Gang. He comes running up, "Ooh, how do you play that, I can't figure it out." You're kidding, all those Chicago solos?? "Ah, all I got is speed," he said. Go figger. Forty some years ago, and that was the last time someone wanted to hear me play anything.

            Same here, I haven't gigged for over 10 years and haven't picked up a guitar in a month. When I do it sure ain't pretty

              Well, I do know lots of guys who know every lick known to man, but who couldn't walk into a bar jam & improvise to save their life...
              I know we need both types, but I personally prefer to be the latter.

                Normally when people put me on the spot like this I just unleash a flurry of incoherent noise that shows the amp can sound good even if the operator doesn't.

                Another trick is (if I know the customer well enough) to daisy chain all my pedals together & set up an oscillatey squealy mess, & then leave a message of "I got your amp fixed, come pick it up any time" followed by a recording of that mess.

                      I know. Symphony guys are used to reading off a sheet, not jamming. Just poking at them.
