Guitar Dad has learned a few things in his day. Most notably, that you never stop learning things.
Below are the basic tenets of my philosophical platform, gathered from years of trying, failing, giving it another go, occasionally emerging victorious, reinventing myself and ultimately realizing that peace, love and understanding are what matter most.
> Word hard at what you do well
> Laugh like a kid
> Don't be afraid to say nothing
> Get excited about the small stuff
> Show everyone enough respect
> Take as much time as you need to get things right
> Listen carefully to what matters
> Tune out all meaningless chatter
> Invest liberally (time and money) in what's important to you
> Go on, take a chance
> Never underestimate the intellect of a child
> Work smart, play smart
> Carve out your share of alone time
> When playing electric guitar, remember that great tone requires great volume
