Well there John, So many induviduals,so many interests,so many reasons for partisipation, People who partisipate they dont mind to bee out there,on the Nation and the ones that dont or dont anymore,who stop for what ever reason. Part of the question is that after a while all things get less exciting or pasionate. When you get in the range of having 100 videos out on u-tube its not as much fun as the first fjew jou do when you start.that comes whit te terretory,you also see lots out there repeating them selfs

when you are only a vieuwer, you tend to notis this and maybee move on,new interest offer on the horizon.When you are a player the golden dream for many is not to own that CBG but that Fender or Gibson, or Gretsch, while those who have specialy go for the rare CBG whit excelent build and tone.

Being a builder and Player my self i know that it takes a long time and efford to get things right,the way you like to, sometimes the build looks good,but sounds affull, or sound teriffic but dont look the part. thats why i like the sharing aspect of the Nation feading  of on other builders ideers or solutions. While on the other Hand other things  evolve like i found out the other day there are these guys (or girls,dont know) that rip just MP3 related audio and put it up under a other name And site,ever here of MP3TR.Net

Im not saying check it out,but from a autentic sorce evolves a new spinof you may never hear about or read about,and because of the cyber world,can bee a closed in community ,it stays small  even while it is International. Getting back to the Future, maybee connect a other aspect to the Nation, like Radio broadcast.All things end sometimes and new emurge this wil keep happening,Feed it ,and Eat  from it, looking back myself music and all that is involved whit that will bee part of my live for sure only the sign of the time gives it in every fase a differend aspect,if it is playing or building or learning,so the future will probebly always bee uncertain,that what makes the now so exsuberenly Interesting! Have a great one John Thanks for asking me! Greetsszzzzz A.D.
