    I suck a little more each year so... by the time I'm 50 I should barely be able to play Le Freak.

    Bummer. I gotta wait a whole decade and some change before I can even complete an application <casi runs to nearest corner, weeps and gnashes teeth>

    :oops:

    UNLESS

    UNLESS

    UNLESS one's high level of sh!ttiness can outweigh the age requirement. I qualify on sh!ttiness. I swear I do!

    I am overqualified in sh!ttiness.

    My wife and kid don’t believe me that I didn’t always suck. Well not totally suck. Maybe suck some. Ok I always sucked.

    I'm 53 and I suck at playing guitar. My age has taught me, what you lack in talent...make up for with volume

    I envy you guys.
    I'm definitely an age qualifier, but my playing ain't worth a $hit. And you guys claim to have it in spades.

    A sh!tty player? Yes, but I don't like to advertise it.

    I know this is tongue in check and all. And I love all of you and would love to be in any other club with you. But I will fight til the day I die to not be a sh!tty guitar player! And not just because of the curse word in the title. :p I just love it too much to think that after all these years (and all this money!) , I still can't play well.

    But, I'm getting ready to play basketball for 10 consecutive weeks for the first time in years. I've only played 2-3 times a year for the last 5 years or so. So when I first start, it won't be pretty, and I'm absolutely sure that the first 2-3 weeks, I'll come home ready to join the sh!t*y basketball players club, and all my life I've sworn I'd die before joining that one. LOL

    Well, I did turn 50 this year, and got a taste of being old in the form of a case of shingles. I do not recommend it... :mad:

    As for guitar, well, I'm kinda OK mid-70's standards.

    Which is to say, somewhere between shitty and "not as good as I want to be."

    The trick is to only carry a few at a time up the ladder to the roof.

    I hear you on the shingles. I had a case of shingles four years ago. I had different symptoms for two months before I finally broke out. Mine went across my chest and all the way down my right arm. I think most people just think of it as a bad skin rash or ailment, but they don't realize the nerve pain that lies underneath it.

    I'm thinking more like this for me...but I'm probably grossly underestimating my level of sh!ttyness...ya know because I'm delusional and what not...o_O are those his guitar faces...or is it just his natural Lil Wayne face?

    THIS!!!! WAIT FOR IT..........
