“That’s all I wanted to do as a kid. Play a guitar properly and jump around. But too many people got in the way.” — Syd Barrett
Shine on you crazy diamond! Although I really don’t know what “properly” means when it comes to playing guitar. More than anything I think it’s an English term that’s thrown in and about all the time. I have no idea… but even in holding the guitar I can show you many successful people who ride it high or slag it low. So what’s proper??
From all I know, Syd seemed to jingle to his own beat anyways… Don’t let anybody get in your way!
