Have you ever been preparing for something (for example your next gig), and have everything accounted for, guitar picks, spare batteries, music stands etc. You know you think you got it all taken care of. Then you make a deliberate decision NOT to change your strings. "They will make it " you say to yourself. Ultimately right in the middle of a great song, (wham) a string breaks. What to do? (See my earlier post on dropped picks and broken strings. ) Actually the broken string is not the real problem. It is only a symptom of the problem.
Improper planning was the real reason for the problem. Oh sure there is a really good chance that this wouldn't happen (in actuality, strings rarely break on gigs). But hey, play with fire and you're going to get burned right?
Plan your work and work your plan. So come on and let's just Play to Win.
