Me too - in about a month. Nice to hear the good reviews (as if I really needed confirmation!)

Every bloody time I see that dude play I start adding up what Iíll net after I sell all my guitars. And to make it worse, he can wail on a Telecaster just as well:

There are people who are born to play guitar or are natural athletes. We mere mortals that were not endowed with those attributes will never play with the ability or finesse of these individuals. That being said all of us have the ability to hone our skills. Playing guitar is a pleasurable experience. Practice, practice and then practice some more but in the end just enjoy the experience.

Why in the world would you give up the guitar after seeing TE? He's excellent but you should take inspiration from it instead of crush yourself under him. By the way I saw the same show...
