Was it pricey? Hell Yeah..Will I give a **** before, during and after? Hell NO! A rare opportunity to meet the guy, get some pointers, be inspired, photo, tabs, dvd, rig run down. blah blah... Hopefully he'll sign my guitar. Was contemplating for awhile and the wifey says, wth you waiting for..DO IT! Shes a keeper ;-) So October 9th in Worcester, MA should be an epic day....Lesson with Mark and capped off with seeing Alter Bridge... One fine day indeed! Let the countdown begin!
