Read and take note of this youngsters out there, because they are about the most truthful words you'll ever read on a guitar forum coming from a man who has a vast experience of the business and who has probaby met more of these guys than you have had hot dinners. So just where are you young guys as Huw asked? Is it just us few old contemtibles in here. For heavens sake come forward and join in with your views. Nobody is going to bite your head off. I'd like to think most youngsters aren't joining in because they feel out of their depth rather than they actually think Slash tone is the answer to everything. Listen kids. To learn you must ask questions. If you don't ask questions and just take things as Gospel you'll never learn anything . The biggest killer these days seems to be the failure to be able to communicate. In fact an exam on communication skills should be introduced as mandatory in every bloody school and college. Be inquisitive..Ask questions.. Put forward your own ideas.. Be an individual.
