Well over the past few years I've had an inspiration issue. I attribute it to being quit depressed about were I was living. Would pick up the guitar here and there and acationaly would come up with or find something interesting to play. It would only last a couple of days then hung back up. A lot had to do with that i had no place to play without bothering the family, damn 100 watters. Recently over the last couple of months i have bought a house in the country, no real close neighbors. My shop has a room were I'm far enough away from my house that it's not a problem for the family. I have probably invested almost as much time to play since I moved in as I have over the past 3 years. My spirits are up and I look forward to jamming now. New gear only helped for a short period for me. Isn't it funny how in a short time your fingers do remember what to do?
