    I've just never been content with strumming boring chords or the simplicity of a lot of different musical types. My curse is the pursuit for technical perfection and honestly, as much as I love playing guitar, I hate it because I've never had fun doing it... I'm just constantly obsessed with pushing myelf to always be faster and better and... I don't know what else. Maybe when I figure out just what I'm wanting from my music, I will learn to enjoy it a little and give myself a break from all the self-imposed pressure.
    I understand completely where you are coming from, I am in the exact same situation, down to my father being the only person who can keep up with me! Because there are no other competent musicians in my area, I spend my time practicing and getting better, which just pushes me even further away. It can get quite discouraging.

    Guitar. I've had several bands in the past, in which I usually had to be the vocalist as well.
    "slavic" languages are absolutely arteficial (Read "slawenlegende"). The "glagolica", invented by a bunch of monks, is nothing but an ancient esperanto, creating new words, definitions and alphabet out of regional slangs.

    The craddle of European Civilization comes from the North. All blond people originate from the north. So if you see a blond-blue eyed Slovene, Russian, Czech, Polak ect., you can be 100% sure that his ancient ancestors originated from "Germanics" (Germanic = Nordic).
    "slovenja" was the settelment of the Langobards = Germanics/Teutons. "Poland" of the Goths and East-Vandals ect. ect. What do "slavs" tell us about their origin?
    Some silly story that they originate from some swamps in the east and popped out of no where into history.

    So you see my dear "Gorostan" [=Triglav], you are in reality a "Germanic" indoctrinated with panslav propaganda and historic fantasy stories. ~Dr. Brandt, former TNP and Skadi member

    I'm sure it was pagan-metal, right?

    Actually, those were rather folk music projects.

    Die Intellektuellen von heute versuchen, den Nationalismus als eine Sünde gegen die Menschlichkeit zu brandmarken. Sie versuchen, uns glauben zu machen, daß dem Wort Nationalismus eine Infamie anhängt. Aber sie verkennen, daß der Geist des Nationalismus aus der schöpferischen Tiefe der menschlichen Seele stammt. Daß er aufsteigt von dort als das gewaltige Verlangen der Menschen, frei zu sein, frei von fremder Herrschaft, und sich nach eigener Art selber zu regieren! Herbert Hoover

    As many, the guitar. But also, being a rural American, I can pluck a little on the banjo.
