How many guitars can one have?

Not enough!

My nails are mostly broken so I have to use guitar picks to play.  Years ago, I ditched the guitar pick as it was not working with the style I was trying to develop.  I've tried the thumb pick until I have my injury, which left me unable to pick up the guitar for years.  Bless be the Lord, now I have returned to playing guitar again. I've opted for finger style picking as it seems more natural.   But in recent months my finger picking nails could not keep up.  They just keep breaking.  I think I'll have to go back to guitar picks and figure out how to incorporate the pick with finger picking if I continue to play at this rate.

Rose's birthday is coming so I have decided what her birthday gift would be.  I got her the Fender American Deluxe Strat.  Of course, she couldn't play the guitar so that leaves me to make use of it.  Chuckle.  I've also gone back to singing.  Rose tells me that I sound like Jim Croce.  I wanted to sound like Freddie Mercury - but oh well.  Maybe if I wear spandex tight enough I might be able to hit those high notes.

Mama mia, mama mia.
