I just discovered a man on Reddit who’d done the 80s hard rock lead guitarist thing, without commercial success, and lost the drive for it. Gave up guitar playing, settled down, had some kids. About a year ago, he was somehow inspired to come out of retirement for fun, to see if he could play a fairly advanced classical guitar piece. And so his return has commenced.
Part of that return includes challenging himself to learn every solo mentioned in Guitar World’s 100 Greatest Guitar Solos, starting from the top. He’s only just started, and already got to a tough one.
Something else he’s doing: challenging his teenaged daughter to step in his footsteps.
I approve of this kind of parenting. I’m just sayin’.
