Entering the new year of 2010 brought on the usual questions for me which were along the lines of How is my career doing? Will my health hold up for touring?, Am I getting burned out?, Have I… WAIT! What was that last one? Am I getting burned out? Well, the truth is, heck yeah. If I’m being perfectly honest (and YOU should be too if you’re an energizer bunny touring musician), I get burned out constantly.
In fact, even if you are not living the surprisingly hectic life of a musician, it is still very likely that even as a hobbyist one can run the risk of burnout and eventually allow the guitar to sit in the corner like a plastic plant or some piece of unnoticed furniture.
