I don't know as you understood what was happening here oh 'Lawrence of Haifa'. I thought from the start that this was a test. So I was going to let it slide without bloviating. BUT I keep trying to get out and you guys keep dragging me back in. lol. So here goes. 

I was born into a 3 room basement apartment in the slums. Clawing his way out my father moved from job to job. I have been to 11 grade schools, 3 high schools, a trade school, and a jr. college. As soon as I made friends, I was ripped away. Between the u.s., Vienna, Trieste, Naples, Paris. Constant moving for 18 years. 

SO, I grew up a loner. I NEED the warmth, camaraderie, appreciation, and I have to admit..respect that I have gotten from my musical forays. I NEED positive waves. Playing with live musicians gives me that. I can feel the aura. Tracks are cold. They won't bend to my style. Not in real time.

Playing with good live musicians allows them to react in real time to what you play as well as teach you to react in real time to what they play.

> Backtracks are way better - then playing with a live band...If you think different - then you probably never played in a band before...Seriously, you can think of a million reasons to use backtracks instead of live musicians...Playing live or in a band is way overrated! Backtracks is were it's at, think about it,  have you ever met a musician that can play better then a backtrack - I didn't think so, case closed :)  I got some tracks you might like mate, shoot me an email....
