Fight and win the nations wars. I don’t think that part has changed.

Learn to play the set up.
You're coming from an acoustic struggle, to gravy...don't let the amplified clams discourage you.
You are right about frustration and burnout.

Action too low. Used to jamming strings against fretboard. hard to unlearn.

How'd Afghanistan do after the first 6 months we were there and had what was left of the Taliban hiding in caves. All the Army had to do at that time was maintain the status quo. WTF happened?

Granted, the Army doesn't get to make the decisions that would lead to the elimination of the enemy. They get to have politicians and the like make decisions about how a war is conducted. Then they slowly lose ground and the advantage.

When we go to war the politicians, which at this point have failed in their duties, need to give the military our objectives. Then stand aside and let us win.

And now you know the reason for sending a new guitar in for a set up.
But; learn to play the low action....you will be glad you did.

When you get adjusted to it; you'll then know why I say playing is really simple....you'll just touch the string to the frets and a note will ring out vs. having to push, press, and hold/jamming strings against fretboard.


If you put in hours on the guitar, your next move at the luthier will be getting another set up to file the frets to accommodate heavier strings, and because you have flattened some of them from playing/practice.

BTW. Just want y’all to understand how awesome my hubs is. Came home from 13 hour work day to see he had done this to our south porch! The man is so talented! Still needs sand between pavers and cut edge pieces. Better than paying the guy cause Timmy will make it perfect.

He built our outdoor fire pit first, rock walls in landscape, retaining block wall along drive, then our outdoor kitchen/bar and our poolside fireplace. I think I know what he should do when he retires in 3.5 years.


I mean oversee the work crew. He is too old to do all the jobs himself.

What's his hourly rate? We need a bunch of brick pavers laid and my back won't let me do it. We have a guestroom he can stay in free of charge. You can come with him and lay on the beach.

I’m not a soldier or a politician. I just serve them by trying to give them what they want or need. What they do individually or collectively is out of my hands.

Poor guy, he couldn’t stand up last night. I gave him a long, much deserved back massage.


I’ll paint while he does pavers. He could never make $$$ doing it because he is a perfectionist. He will redo a row 5 times to get it exactly the way he wants it.

Don't misunderstand, I'm in no way blaming you.

I just know that our military can win any war if let off the chain and allowed to do so. Vietnam was lost by the politicians/nation not having the will to win.

Never start a war that you are unwilling to do what it takes to win.

So he'll do our paver work and you'll paint? Sweet!
