    Yeah so, I just asked Google, and today is officially day 870 of my journey. I set a goal and committed to it 100%, it feels great to still be on task, so I thought I would share. :confused:

    I've been fortunate enough to be able to practice/noodle/wank, for at LEAST 30 minutes a day, but as much as several hours a day, (EVERY day without exception) for 870 days in a row. Yeeeeeeeesssss!!!!!

    I know, it's a completely useless factoid unless, your an analytic stat/spec nerd like me. :cool:

    This journey is hands down the most challenging/rewarding thing, I've ever commited this much of my time and efforts to, that wasn't career related.

    So, I wanted to give a BIG shout out to all of you guys. I've made some great friends here during these first 870 days. Just knowing I can come here, hang out with my buds, pick brains, look at hawt guitar porn, and enjoy some general shenanigans has been HUGE! I can't thank all of you guys enough!

    So, here's to the next 870+ days, thanks again guys! Bro hugs to all!

    Cheers!

    Gumption. Intestinal fortitude. Sticktoativeness. Committment. Call it what you want. I dig it.

    OK, so that's one of the cooler things I've read...and I am one of those analytical stat-type guys!!! Congrats...Nice Work.

    So, did you have a specific goal in mind?? (Play Hard guitar solo (Freewill, Note-for-note???), get away from what you normally play, break out of a rut, etc...)????
