This message is for you Steve. I hope you will eventually get to read it. I had the great privilege of spending time with you onstage at you're concert at the Wild Horse Pass Casino around last October. (Wow, it's almost been a year.) You brought me on stage, surprising me with much more than I was imagining to be possible. You signed (SVai) on a sheet of Berklee manuscript paper on which is written, "My Guitar Jesus." I also have two picks. One you used for a while and threw out. (I was frantically looking for it on the floor and around me until I realized it was in my lap.) Another you gave me onstage. (I have one that you used, and a brand new one.) I was raised in a good home with a fairly nice upbringing. My parents worked in the medical field. My father, Kevin, Cardiology.(The Heart.) He earned his pilots license and flew small airplanes for fun.( I remember flying with him.)Although he was not perfect, he was a decent parent. We were good friends. He left for a night flight one afternoon at dark. He left his physical body, and died that night. I was about 13 years old. He taught me to play the guitar. He was a major influence in my life, and you are as well. I am now 23 years old, a Vegetarian,(You Influenced Me) I have given up smoking Marijuana, and am planning to attend Berklee in my future. I am working through a GED, and taking theory lessons from a Berklee graduate. (I will continue in another post)

I got my teeth fixed.(a genetic issue) I am working at a Fry's grocery store as a courtesy clerk,(bagger) also at a Wendy's as a cashier.(money changer) After I finish the Ged, the plan is to attend Mesa Community College for Theory, Ear Training, Harmony, to prepare for Berklee.(My teacher Zack Egan just graduated as an A student, with a four year degree, in some advanced classes. I have a base of 30,000 dollars to put towards Berklee when the time comes. That's how much my Mom has vowed and promised to help me attend. (Currently one half of a year.) Of course I will attempt to attend longer through any student loans, scholarships, money I can contribute working minimum wage, (8.00 dollars an hour.) or Blessings. I have practiced chanting and Buddhism before I met you with an old guitar teacher. (SGI) I don't so much practice chanting in the Soka Gakkai International division of Buddhism anymore. I did become a member though. I was raised attending the Church of Christ. I remember the first time I played an electric guitar(around 10 years old) An older blue American Stratocaster. I remember the first song I ever created / played on that day. (All this sounds honest and good to you, I hope? Anyways... I have questions, (a question for you). I will ask in the next post. (out of room here)

Question for Steve(read previous 2 posts first to understand please)
How can I will my fingers/hands to grow larger/longer?
(Left Hand Specifically.) My current finger reach is 9 1/2 inches to 10 from thumb tip to pinky tip. My middle finger is currently around 9.2cm long. I don't want to pantomime you're genius, but would be very happy to make a career and a good living playing the guitar. I love the idea of big hands. My fingers are fairly larger than my guitar teachers, who attended Berklee and received his degree as an A student in some advanced classes. I have heard you say that you are convinced that you willed you're hands to be as big as they are. I believe. Staring at hands and wanting them to grow? Zack, my guitar teacher said you used to stare into the mirror for long amounts of time and facilitate growth? I am very interested in relatively altered states of consciousness.(Fasting, Prayer, Sleep Dep., Staring Into the Mirror, so on and so forth)etc. Can you help me with this? P.S. I have been watching The Amazing You/ The Amazing Movie. I have read about Pamposh or lots about the Lotus/ also The Sublime Essence Of The Lotus Feet. I have read about you're experience with Dying For Your Love. I really love, For The Love Of God, The Silent Within, Dying For Your Love... and... Goin' Crazy.(I live in AZ, it's hot) I hope and pray all this gets to you. Thank You~ Cole
