After about 35 years of playing with my twanger, I feel it's just not happening anymore for me. I did take about a 12-year break some years ago, and when I came back it never ever seemed to be completely sincere for me ..was kinda forced and seemed like "the thing to do" because I always did it. I'm at the top of my game too so there is a large investment loss for me. In the past, I've always wanted to at least keep it up ...just in case. Now, for the first time, I really don't even care about that as much anymore. There is an odd feeling of a fresh "new leaf" at the thought of .."moving on" ...kinda like getting out of a certain "fake guitar word bubble" I've been in for some years. It feels "fresh" actually when I "don't" play. Not gonna sell any gear because I still dig it; even though I have to stop looking at it for a while - It feels weird and kinda depressing. I still DIG being here and yukin' it up with the club about the gear and stuff. Maybe I just like that better now. How's your twanger doing for y'all?
