“Oh i know this, that’s cool, i like that one. Steely Dan, classic, that’s got to be 12″

“The thing is i really love all guitar playing. That’s exactly the thing, hearing the guitar when i was a kid and just really appreciating even then. That you know, it’s six strings of an electric guitar but everyone will take on it their caracthers, so they are different. That’s the cool thing about it.”
