I think that some people get into popular music as a result of low self
esteem? Serious music is another thing. People get into that for many

me? You don't like me now do you? My music is bad and I know it.
Talk about a bunch of "if it ain't what we approve of then it is um,
I do really find you guys, in all of your splendiferous multiplicity
and imagination really kind of restrictive but less restrictive than a
mass of republican metal heads.
Most people, especially guitarists, need to look at their expectations
of major chords.
