Had a nightmare last night...

Last night I had the most bizarre and terrifying nightmare in years. I've had dreams of dying, losing limbs, people close to me leaving, you know the usual, but this was probably the worst.

Long story short, it was about me checking my facebook and seeing in the news page that "Gathering of G3 musicians tragically die in plane crash over the pacific." When I opened the page it was an obituary for Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and John Petrucci. I remember having an intense feeling of dread, looking over at my guitar on its stand and just sitting there sobbing.

It was so vivid, I woke up and hastily checked the news and wikipedia articles of those guys, quickly becoming calmed realizing it was all just a dream. Then I sat there and pondered the effect of music on the listener. Those guys have been such an inspiration to me in my life, their music always being there for whatever might be happening. The idea, the dream possibility of their nonexistence was too much to handle for the 30 seconds it took me to confirm it was all fake.

For whatever reason, it rekindled an ever more powerful motivation to train to be the best guitarist in the world. To be capable of influencing emotions in people powerful enough to draw tears, whether of joy or sadness. Not that I want people to have a similar nightmare, cause that was awful.

Train hard everyone, be the best you can be. Let your emotion flow from your fingers like an effin majestic river. Make people weep, make people clap, become an inspiration for someone else to be the best they can be. Be the best YOU can be, and then be MORE.

peace

That would suck!

Once I had a dream that most of my JEMs were stolen or beaten up.
I'd open the case and find nothing in it or a damaged JEM.

Re: Had a nightmare last night...

Reading this reminded me of Dimebag all over, still hits me hard that he's gone. i never want to read about Steve or anybody else going in crashes or stuff like that, only the normal way- old age

Those last 2 sentences are some of the most inspirational words I have heard in a while. Quite poetic.

You definitely have to never give up and always strive to be the best.

If you want to beat up your Jem, just loan it to Steve for a few days.
