I've been gigging for over 40 years, mostly locally but not always, toured Germany and Austria for over a year some time ago, and had the same band (blues rock trio) now for over 25 years. Recently I suffered a brain tumour which I'm in the process of having treated, and hopefully all will get sorted out in the next few months.
So, I have stopped gigging amongst other activities. The strange thing is I don't really miss it, and it's good to have the break. Over the years I managed to get together my guitar/amp collection, which I'm more than happy with, and have no desire to change anything.
But it's frustrating, I play my guitars at home, try to keep my playing ability up together, enjoy that but feel just playing at home is not enough.....or is it?
I don't often publish stuff like this, but I'm genuinely interested to know how others feel, is anyone else here just happy with playing at home, for example?
Thanks for any opinions, advice, etc......
