I honestly thought the guy was a fraud the first time I saw him. But there are tons of clips of him online tuning his guitar and playing other songs.

EDIT: Adam just goodrepped me for saying that Muzza's stock went up. Seriously, though, it has. If the final turns out to be Muzzerer and Muzza beats down Federer, I will be even more grateful. (I will also gratuitously laugh at MY.)

Re: The AO Battlefield Chat Thread

See Scoobs you were wrong, you were wondering what pseudo controversy would arise today about Roger's interviews but since he didn't play yesterday there was none. There's a just a thread congratulating Murray for doing the exact same thing Roger did

It might be a matter of taste. I don't tend to like high-pitched instruments. I enjoy the cello more than the violin, the sax more than the flute.
I'd agree with your preferences there to a degree. I do love the cello, but there is so much fabulous violin music. I love a great violin concerto. Flute solos can be a bit much, but again in the hands of a virtuoso, the flute can be compelling. I can't think I would ever buy a CD of flute music though.

Oh, and the clarinet is high pitched, but when Benny Goodman lets rip with his big band behind him, it's revelatory. Even though I know it's coming, I still swoon.

Re: The AO Battlefield Chat Thread

He should worry about his FH instead of playing mind games with Roger if you ask me

The guitar was not an instrument people regarded the same way as the piano for example. However my mom was really eager for me to learn music and I started with the guitar. Unfortunately I havent played for many years, but I could play this when I was 12:

1. about your grandfather.
2. about the instruments getting thrown out.
3. and at the derogation of the classical guitar. It's a beautiful, sublime instrument. The piano is supreme, but...still.
4. When did you stop playing the guitar? Too many kids stop before they realize their true potential.
5. I guess you had to stop to go learn all the languages you speak (32, by my count )
6. Ed Helms' character in The Office cracks me up.

He's just being nice to Roger. Little Wogie-wogie does so love playing mind games, and Rafa would never really play that way with him.

Mule or Mole.

I want to see Querrey give Roddick the beating of his life. It'll happen.
