I knew that guitar was for me! I rushed back, put a deposit on it, and ever since I've had it, fantastic things have been happening with my playing and music in geeral. It was a very bizarre experience. I'm not superstitious, I'm not into astrology or any of that - but I know damn well some other force was at work. Weird, weird, shit.'more
