What’s the secret of good playing?
Well that’s an easy one. PRACTICE! (laughs) You’re either on your way to becoming a great player or not. And I don’t think that path ever ends. But if you are on your way to that, and you really want it, then you have got to do nothing but practice your instrument. Night and day. Day and night. When you’re watching TV, you’re quietly practicing your guitar. When you’re making love you’re still practicing your guitar in your head! (laughs) I sleep with my guitar beside me. If I wake up in the middle of the night I like to reach over and feel it there. I collect old vintage acoustic guitars. They’re one of my favorite things in this world. So I’ve got a few. That way you can keep a guitar in every room of your house. So there’s just no excuse not to be practicing all the time.
