I have tried my hand at several musical instruments through the years including the bodhran, drums, organ, piano and the guitar.  The one thing that was consistent in all of these attempts was my lack of talent.  What my brain and\or heart wanted to play never quite translated into the hands and became one with the instrument.  However, I love music and have always found it frustrating that I had little strength in this area.  I think this is why I admire muscians and what they are able to do.  The artist that has the ability to take you away from your present day trials and tribulations and give you a few moments of inner joy....now THAT is a real gift.

Many guitarists seem to be improving on the technique of air tapping.  I watch in amazement at what they can do with their instrument.  Here is one of my favourite videos in this area.
