you misunderstand

after about the first five years...i never break strings.  it takes longer
for some of us to adjust to the tuning, but once you understand...it's 
a problem

i was thinking back to that first year or two, when you don't yet know how
to APPROACH the guitar, how to restring it without breaking strings.

plus I had a history of picking WAY TOO HARD

GC finally put a stop to that


HONOR SUFFICIENCY (especially in regard to picking force!)
