I mean, I have moments of huge frustration because of my inability to express myself linguistically as clearly as I would like to.More David Gilmour [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
These days I don't look to other people with the objective of trying to steal their licks, although I've got no objections to stealing them if that seems like a good idea.

I don't know if I could ever get any of that stuff together. Sometimes I think I should work at the guitar more.More David Gilmour [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
