I love to play and i really enjoy my gear but sometimes youtube can be a humbling experience.
Amen to that! Can be a money-saving experience, too, though. Everytime I start GAS-ing for a real (read;expensive
, and lefty on top of that) resonator guitar, I go to youtube and watch/listen to Roy Rogers play "Walkin' Blues", slide style, on a 12-string resonator.
My GAS goes away pretty quick. At 62, I'll never live long enough to even get close...
