    Ace Frehley provides me a different inspiration for playing guitar than say Eddie Van halen. When I hear a KISS song and poor old Ace I really beging to think 'you know, I am not THAT BAD a guitar player'. Ace I think is proof it doesn't always take talent.

    Eddie on the other hand reminds me I have years of more practice ahead *lol*

This is why it is not completely laughable that my third career, sometime in the future, will be as a rock guitarist. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    The wierd thing too about Ace Frehley is that he has fans who are light years ahead of him in the technique department. Dimebag Darrell and Marty Friedman (formerly from Megadeth) are two of his biggest fans and those guys make Ace look like he doesn't even know how to play. Dimebag Darrell even has Ace's head tattooed on his chest. I also like Ace Frehley and I'm way better technically than he is. At this point in time after playing for almost 10 years I'm probably as good as Ed is but like you said, a lot of other things figure into the equation such as drive, luck, stage presence, business sense, getting hooked up with the right people etc.
