It's not the video that wins. Personally I think it's ridiculous that some damn woman feels the need to dress like a fucking stripper to play this. ::) But one of the comments made me spit beer all over my monitor laughing.

Lol yeah. I can or Uhhh used to be able to play that song on piano. It's funny how far the bench is probably trying to bring more attention to the outfit.

My folks spent a shitload of money on a really nice upright grand piano for me one Christmas. Apparently my mother had aspirations of watching her son play piano in a church performance or some shit. (Dads want their sons to become great high school athletes... moms want their sons to play piano in church but somehow not turn out gay) And apparently the fact that neither one of my parents had any musical inclination themselves didn't give them a moments pause before deciding to drop a few grand on a Wurlitzer. I dunno, apparently they thought if they bought the piano and a few little books that I'd take it upon myself to sit down and LEARN the shit all on my own. Hell naw. Once or twice I sat there and banged out the Jaws theme until it annoyed her and she told me to stop. That was pretty much the extent of my piano playing.

And then a couple years later I discover my dads old shitty 1950's Silvertone cowboy acoustic from when he was a kid rotting away in the basement (the guitar rotting away, not him rotting away... weirdo). And some 25 or 30 years later, I actually DO play guitar, and can play the living fuck out of it, never had a lesson, learned everything I know on my own. And when my old man bought my first real guitar, a decent little Hohner western series acoustic from the early 90's, he probably spent less than 5% of what he spent on that fucking piano. For years afterwards, it was basically just a piece of furniture to dress up the living room. At Christmas time, my mom used to set her It's A Wonderful Life village set with choo-choo train up on the top of it. So... it was like a really expensive mantle or shelf, lol.

They ended up giving it to my sister. I think my oldest nephew plays it a little.

My mom had me take lessons from a pianist that went to juliard. I picked up guitar later on my own, but my beautiful strat is just collecting dust right now in the garage.

I'm always playing. I lay there in bed at night while the old lady's trying to get to sleep plinking on my Fender until she slaps me upside the head. I guess it was about 2010 when I got fed up with how completely shitty my old Ibanez was and I rarely picked up any of my guitars anymore. Then in 2016 when I got that Gibson Les Paul, I finally started playing again.

My playings changed a little bit. I rarely play any metal anymore, mostly blues, southern rock, and classic rock kinda shit. That's also why I need to get a new amp. My old one was put together anticipating I'd be playing metal with it, thus the Peavey poweramp with tighter sounding 6L6 tubes. But I mostly HATE this amp setup now. Sounds like shit to me. All it does well is two basic sounds, a plain old clean sound, and a 1980's Marshall JCM800 hard rock/heavy metal kind of sound by way of the OD1 channel on my Marshall JMP1 preamp. Switching to the OD2 channel, it sounds terrible. Doesn't sound like a tube amp at all, sounds like a cheap distortion pedal.

I wanna get something very British sounding, and unfortunately these days if you want something TRULY British sounding, you have to buy either a Marshall or an Orange, and even then it has to be one of their more expensive ones. The Marshall DSL100's, the successors to the old JCM2000's, JCM900's and JCM800's, they're made in fucking Vietnam now, not England, and they sound dead and lifeless compared next to a new Made In England Marshall JVM head. The DSL100 is about 800 bucks, whereas the JVM's are around 2000 bucks. Orange is the same shit. The 1100 dollar Orange TH30 heads are made in PRC (Peoples Republic of China), where as the Orange Rockerverb and Dual Dark heads are actually "Made In England", and will cost you 2150-2500 bucks. In my opinion... you're not really buying a Marshall or an Orange unless it's actually MADE IN ENGLAND... otherwise you're basically buying some shit they merely "designed" and licensed out to some asian factory to produce with subpar components and subpar quality control standards.

Anyway, since I started playing again, I feel like my playing has improved a good bit. Used to I'd play a blues scale in one place on the neck. But now I'm all over the place like a freak. Maybe at some point I'll try to plug something up to this PC and record myself.

I was winning 2 days ago. After multiple failed attempts by others i swam through massive swells to save something very important and very expensive(millions) before Michael hit. Two branches of military and several fed govt agencies, law enforcement all involved. It's hard to word this humbly and not sound ridiculous, but it was all me. I had a massive audience that hooting and hollering and clapping when I safely returned to shore. Hundreds of people whistling, I declined to comment to media and refused to divluge my name to all news sources. "Can we at least get a first name!?" I apologized and said no.

It's a crazy and intentionally vague story, but I got er done.
