No. It's quite human. When I'm at school or whatever, I'm quite a reserved person. However, if I'm umping or playing softball, I'm loud and cheery. Doing what you love should put a grin on you as wide as your face will allow.
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ

Me too. Since college, I would have withered without playing guitars.

As a parent and man of some experience, please allow me one possible interpretation of that:

Quote by FenderFreak100's Dad


Son, when I see you on your own, playing guitar or skateboarding, it makes me feel great that you look so happy. But it also worries me that when you can't do those things, you appear to be very unhappy.

I don't like to think that I have given you an unhappy life. I know you are young and supposed to be a bit moody or thoughtful, but if you could smile a touch more often, it would make me feel better about myself and feel less worried for you.


I shouldn't worry but as parents we constantly worry about our kids. Your playing etc, lifts your spirit so much that it is very obvious to him and as such, when you aren't doing those things, you a seem really, really down.

I personally, look pretty miserable a great deal of the time, even if I am not. I have to try to make myself appear more jolly, or it brings my family down to where they think I am.

Or I might just be talking crap.
