What is wrong with playing with someone 40+ years old? When I was young I played with older guys all the time.
But to tell the truth, I'm not too interested in playing what most of my 40+ contemporaries are playing either. I have a neighbor with a great voice who plays great guitar and KB but he's into the James Gang and covers of old stuff that we were listening to 20 or 30 years ago. I want to play my own tunes and jazz.
I have a band but the only way I can motivate these guys is to get paying gigs - They actually think they're going to make money at this! This is why I have solo acoustic arrangements for all of my tunes. A band sure does put it over a lot better though!
Oh well, I guess it's some consolation that I do get people who want to play with me - They just always seem to assume that I've got all sorts of gigs lined up!
