I'm a songwriter who is not terrific at any instrument. I use the piano to find and write the chords. I can't really play the piano more than just hitting a chord on each beat, but I understand it enough to find the chords in the key of what ever song my head came up with. I can play shabby guitar. I try and stay in the keys of G and C and their minors (capo is my friend). I have two strum patterns for 4/4 and one strum pattern for 3/4 & 6/8. It is better for everyone in a public performance if I just sing while someone else plays, even with my own songs. Anyways, I say all this because I want to actually learn to play the guitar well. It's about time. I also would love to know the cello and the penny whistle, but would be happy enough if I actually resolved to get proficient at the guitar.

The video was fascinating! It gets my mind thinking in such interesting ways. And double thanks for understanding exactly what my comment was getting at. I've not had much of a focus on philosophy as of yet, but this has intrigued me deeply. Thanks, again!

I feel dumb, but how in the hell is A not significantly better than A+? How does summing up total happiness matter? Who does total combined happiness matter to? Some God-like galactic well-being counter?
