Emotions and Motivation

06 November 2016 - 11:53 AM

Did you ever wake up, pick up your favorite guitar and just look at it like it is an unfamiliar piece of junk?

I just had such an experience today.  Picked up my old Martin D28, plucked a few notes and just felt like it didn't really belong to me.  Now I wasn't trying to flatpick some old tune, just strum the strings to make sure they weren't dead and since i can't play it anymore, was just listening to the tone.  Usually, the harmonics ring out so rich and full, and just playing the strings will relax me and put me in the mood to try once more.  But today, all I felt was remorse and a deep sadness.

Am I sick?  LOL
