    Having not been in a band for a few years due to work and raising a family, I now have time to join one.
    Trouble is, I've lost the confidence to do it!
    I've got all the gear I need and I play well but totally lack the balls to do it!
    My most recent excuse to avoid it is that the Marshall quad won't fit in the car, which I havn't really tried so don't really know.
    Before that it was that I didn't have good enough gear...but now I do...damn!
    Do they sell balls on ebay?

    I know how you feel Sean...it's been a long time since I played in a band too, and while I'm getting the itch to do it, I'm kind of hesitant about it too. I was doing some studio stuff in Memphis a couple of years ago...just playing on people's demos and what not, but that's not like being the guitarist of a band. In that situation all you do is go in and some dude says "Play this...", and you play it. I didn't see half of the people I played for. LOL The trouble for me is since I moved from there my playing has really taken a backseat to everything else, and that's probably the same thing you've gone through as well. I KNOW I can still play, but I feel I've lost what little edge I had at one time. Any speed I had is now mediocre at best, but I guess it could come back with some hard practicing. The brain knows what to do, but the fingers say fuck off.

    First, loosen up with playing along with some of your favorite albums for a week or two. Find some guys you can trust, and then jump in feet first. If you turned as shitty as you are afraid of, then you don't deserve your gear in the first place, and you will need to give it to us here on the board, gratis. I have dibs on any amplification. Suck it up and put a sock in your pants. There's your testicles! And remember, Grasshopper, do it for the joy, not for free beer... [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Before I had a regular gig, and when I was a sax player, I'd find all the open mike jam sessions in bars that I could. You meet some cool people and the improv feel of it makes it much looser...I always had fun doing it...

    I've played a few of them but the egos on these people rival Malmsteen's.
    It goes beyond simple competition and is just not something I want to be around.
    The area I'm in has a set group of people as it is..not much new blood here.
    Think I'll get in touch with some people from the 'old days' and see what's going on. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
