    Default when the going gets rough keep on going.

    This may sound like advice that you all know but it is good to remember its wisdom

    if you make a mistake just keep going dont stop
    dont hesitate dont pause
    make adjustments but keep going.

    I did a gig today my debut on guitar.
    it was a fingerstyle funk piece

    the choir was singing a song based on just my imagination
    I was suppose to be laying the bass and chords

    all was going well but whenever I hit a chord it was either way to loud or way to low (inaudible)
    or distorted like I could see i was holding what looked like the right strings and frets
    but what I was hearing was something else altogether

    later on I realized i had my PRS in the bridge pup position

    and my amp was set to grunge.

    and I needed a clean setting.

    plus the drive was up kind of high

    always check the drive.

    in any event as I am playing it sounded horrible
    I wanted to chuck my gutiar into the congregation and run away,
    but I guess it was just my imagination
    because after church all these young guys come running up asking how did you do that with your guitar

    and my girlfriend said they were taping me.
    during my performance.

    so I guess they heard something good.

    All I am saying is
    when the going gets rough just keep playing

    the music must go on.

    maybe your wrong chord will sound like some stroke of creativity.
    to someone else.
