sorry; that's just ridiculous.

follows my unwanted suggestions to some folks on this list (who are, most 
likely, guitar players):
get outta the house;
go hear some music that ye haven't heard yet.
buy some new cd's/vinyls, ones that ye normally wouldn't, & listen to 'em.
spend just one occasional day thinking about yer instrument as an unknown 
object, but play with it, anyway.
open it up, thas'all:
just open it up: forget all the pedagogic tripe, including this bullshit 
i'm spewing.

own 'music creation'.

and, after all..... after looking at the references in yer previous

'sliding yer fingers up & down the strings trying to repeat the previous 
'musical creations' of jimmy page (or whomever) does not make you a guitar 
player, erm, musician'.
