Me too. But I hate that I don't have more time for it, more guitars, and a larger repertoire.

I hate that my own guitar music brings back my memories, beautiful places that I love and there I can not be anymore... and beautiful people who may not be there anymore...and spirits of people who gone forever and those who been changed by time...and it brings me myself but long time ago when I was so different ...

I hate how long it takes for me to warm up. If I take a break for more than an hour or two, I'll have to warm up again!

I am not sure what do you mean... but it is probably not writing style, but been not able to express myself in English because it is my second language...

Just joking. Until a week or two ago you wrote quite long paragraphs. Recently you have been writing short phrases interspersed with, erm, three dots (normally three dots are called an ellipsis, but that's only when they indicate that something has been omitted).

Andrei I always appreciate your thoughtful posts that reveal a warm and fully rounded personality. Plus you're a really good guitarist. I was joking too: Joni Mtichell's Blue is a fantastic album that's at times nostalgic and 'down' about life. In one song she has herself drinking alone in a bar and blowing the lone candle out while she thinks about the changes that have happened to a former lover. so my reference.

There's just two things I hate about playing guitar... Nail maintenence, as someone else has mentioned it already. I also enjoy woodworking, so each time I come back from my workshop, I have to file down these nicks and scratches... And changing strings. I wish I was rich enough to have someone else to do it for me every few weeks :D

The only thing I don't like Classical guitar is short sustain.
