There's nothing more depressing than the career music store salesmen who
know less about the gear they are selling than you do. Sometimes I'm
or think it's a trick - if half the people who come in the store knows
as much as I do, they've got to learn something eventually.
Well, maybe a few things are more depressing. The old ones, who can't play
very well either, and try to get you stoked up by those
keyboards, for example.
