^ Ok, glass is half full moment coming.. Living in Florida I'm a car ride from all the major tourist areas down here. Loud rock can be tough down here, real tough. But guitar driven blues, funk, Motown and anything danceable is a hit. Just have to be smart, put away any guitar hero crap, hide in the mix more often and one will be fine. Worst case if you get itchy fingers --- strategically place a few SRV tunes in the set. People still like that to a degree. Don't see this changing anytime soon as classics are classics. I guess one has to adapt or get out. I'm sure this is not any different from other parts of the country. Or the world for that matter. Like I was told when I first arrived down here, if you want to play loud chunky rock tunes through a 50 watt tube amp turned up then look for the establishments away from the family tourist areas. The places with the motorcycles parked out in front are usually fair game. Wow that statement reminded me of the biker bar scene in Pee Wee Herman's Great Adventure! Just remember, no one is going to knock on our doors and confiscate or guitars! So enjoy what you have, anyway you can.
