He just described my teenage years. Lots of fun but I ended up working in offices for 25 years. I enjoy Dave's straightforwardness but he forgot the bit about talent (and luck, as Jookbox said).

These days if players of real time instruments don't have a musical education it is very hard to get decent gigs that actually pay money in this competitive environment (at least in Sydney). What's left of the scene is crawling with trained players.

Really like your post, Mike, though I don't think an idea is enough any more.
