    People pass on and are no longer among us but ideas do not die and can not be subjected to corporal enslavement. ( Roger Lewis )

    Nope. You're a middle-aged guy with no musical skills, no academic training, and no talent for playing guitar, writing or even thinking. You're a casebook example of a dilettante.

    But like I said: You can pretend to be whatever you want!

    Not interested. I've read plenty of your musings already. I get the gist.
    Besides, you just proved my point.

    Caged polishing system
    Cloth, Apparell, Guitar , Environment, discombobulate ( C A G E D )


    You have obviously been neglecting you polishing practice in favour of maybe even playing.
    Why people bother with string guages and stuff I really don't know every body knows Guitars do not need strings it makes them harder to Polish and if you have seen one string you have seen them all.?
    Following the C A G E D system of guitar appreciation and not wasting time on strumming the guitar will preserve its value and fulfil its most impot'rtant function, always remembering that Guitars benefit from listening to music more than being played so a stand in front of the Stereo speakers kills two birds with one stone , no depreciation and you get to polish when listening to music with your guitar. Perfect.

    I personally find most of the modal stuff boring. Unless perfected to a point of imperceptibility, it becomes music for musicians. I enjoy understanding the devices better but really don't like listening to someone and thinking "What a great example of harmonic alliteration!". Great music is an organic experience, personally.

    It's like makeup on a woman: If you notice a woman's makeup, she's probably wearing too much. I realize some women have wrongly deluded themselves into believing excess makeup is theatrical, makes them look interesting, distracts from obesity, or whatever but we all know pouring syrup on poop doesn't make it a pancake.

    I'd like to see you have a shot at this.

    It would be interesting to see how you got on with this.

    How about some Beethoven

    please note this is just an old scale practice video. DO your best at your futile attempts to get whatever self amusement you get from your purile invective really it is all most interesting to me and rather amusing.

    Roger, without wishing to overtly digress, or appear to troll your thread, I find the above rather confusing. You see, I have been involved in publishing for quite a number of years, and I find your comment about punctuation being an 'abstract allusion' quite difficult to follow. I can quite understand the less able not being able to punctuate, and also the very competent making typos from time to time, but I cannot get my head around this abstract allusion thing. Are you talking about anarchy in the written word? Are you suggesting that sentences are disbanded? That sentences run into other sentences, resulting in a long stream of words? That paragraphs run into paragraphs, and chapters run into chapters (for that is the logical extrapolation of what you have set forth, from what I can make of it...).

    Please tell me more.

    Someone of super-genius level* would easily grasp his lofty ideals without having them broken down into manageable bites through the crutch of punctuation.
