I think its safe to say that playing the guitar is a wonderful (yet beautiful experience), and the endless possibilities of this instruments power affects everyone rather differently. Whats important, is whether or not your have the right intentions from the beginning, (where fortune and fame is secondary) to reaching your highest level of creativity as a musician. Along the way some very talented musicians have let success go to their head, where they have forgotten about whats most important when recording music. If you have a good head on your shoulders and you're wlling to learn in more ways than one, hey all of the power to you.
Its very difficult to meet the right people who have trhe same ideas as you and who are willing to compromise in more ways than one, but with just enough patience, when you find them you'll know it when things are right.
