At this point the only danger is to your ears!
I've always wanted to learn to play guitar. I've had a few friends and family encourage me to but I never did.
I believe the conversation with The Architect went something like this...
"David, do you know what your problem is?"
"No. (but I s'pose yer gonna tell me."
"Your problem is, you never picked up a guitar."
When I had the chance to pick up a Stratocaster for less than a third of what it would cost me new I attacked it.
Picked up a little Fender Frontman amp at a pawn shop. I've got a stack of books with chords and music lessons. I'm working on my callouses.
OH! Yes, that of course is a Snap-On 11/16's deep socket/ slide.
Ya wanna hear something REALLY scary?
I've got a mic and I know how to plug it in!!!
