    CRESTWOOD WITH MINI DELUXE HUMBUCKERS. AND A LITTLE
    GIBSON TUBE AMP. IT KICKED BUTT. I WAS 18 OR 19 AT NIGHT I STAYED IN THE GAME TENT WITH A SLEEPING BAG AND MY GUITAR.

    PLAY! THIS GUY WAS VERY NICE AND NOT COCKY. HE KNEW HE COULD PLAY. I ASKED HIM BEFORE HE LEFT IF HE COULD SHOW ME SOMTHING THAT WOULD HELP MY PLAYING.
    HE SHOWED ME AND SAID THIS; PRACTICE THIS AND YOU,LL FIND YOUR WAY. CRAW, WALK ,RUN. DO THIS AS FAST AS YOU CAN
