Hey Paul, glad to see the #1 guitar site back online again. Seldom do I log on to GN from my home computer. Yet I could not resist and wanted to learn some more. Lo and behold I could not log on. "Now what am I going to do" I thought. After hitting refresh and trying to log on to my home email and back to GN to see if it was just the GN site, I had a plan. I flipped on my cd player, got out a music book (the Clash) and started jamming. That lasted about 2 hours.
Then I tried logging back on to GN. When I could not get in I shut the computer down and started reading some music theory. So, all in all, the "downtime" actually let me do some things I should have been doing anyway. Nevertheless, I'm so glad to be back here chatting with everyone. It's kinda like an extended family (at least for me).
