I sure hope I didn't take it out of context :shock: Here's what I mean by The Good old Grateful Dead and it can't hurt to renegotiate your definition of success.

Watched Birdhouse doing "Here comes Sunshine"...that's just one of note....really enjoyed that one...but now all I can think I suck. So many talented people out there. Also get the idea that the boys (Garcia included if he were still around) would get a real kick out of the interpretations being posted.

jester536 I suck.
I saw a great quote somewhere (can't seem to find it so I'll paraphrase:) It said, You got into your art because you have amazing taste. So you start producing art and the thing is, it kind of sucks. What you should know is everyone goes through this. It is important to keep producing that art, push through the sucky phase, until you get to some stuff you're proud of.

Keep at it :hail:

Edit to add: I also love some advice my dad gave me. "There will always be someone better than you, but there will also always be someone worse than you." That's the way of the world. We always look UP to see who we want to be, but if you look down, there's a cute noob looking up to you :-)
