    Re: Is this a "crap" shoot?

    Hi all.
    Can't say what was running through my mind, but, as usual, the good people here helped unclog the thought.

    Thanks a million...

    Hi Jeff.
    Yep, you're right and I dropped the ball on this one. My apologies(seems I'm doing that a lot lately).

    Re: If You Don't Perform In Public....

    I will indeed. My apologies for kind of a rough bit of humor. Not being married and having no children I sometimes forget myself. It will NOT happen again. Sorry. Thanks for the reminder.

    What does OP mean?

    Hi Carl. Thanks for the post. You hit it square on the nose. Rather than belittle, or be arrogant or even rude, I would rather put the instrument down and never play again. Which was my ultimate...

    Don - under no circumstances should you apologize. In fact, it is me who should be apologizing for a very poorly written post. It was very much NOT about what you wrote- which was both informative...

    Neck Bow

    Re: Removing the Florida extension

    Kind of a rude response. Expected better from a member of this forum. And yes, I could very easily play just fine without the extra frets. Sarcasm does no one any good.
