    I’m not sure about most but the only way I learn is from doing. In my younger years I’ve had many a boss tell me I was hard headed. That maybe the case, I’m certainly not arguing that point, someone can tell me until their blue in the face but unless I’m hands on it ain’t gonna stick. Good luck and just take your time!

    Got any recommendations for some of those tunes? Bands, solos, etc?

    I love classic rock, old country, older stuff I don't know what it's classified as (lol), etc. See if you have anything good I haven't heard.

    Here are some I like as examples....Tennessee Ernie Ford, Jimmy Dean, The Highwaymen, Marty Robbins, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Aaron Watson, Whiskey Myers, George Strait, Alabama, Tony Justice, Bill Weaver, Conway Twitty, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Eric Clapton, Heart, Styx, Ozzy, etc etc :)

    Appreciate it much! Yeah I'm the same exact way. Even in CDL school I didn't understand much of anything until I was actually doing it or seeing it and touching it (mechanical all the pre-trip stuff etc). Why I decided to never go to a full blown college. I don't learn from lectures, lessons, and books very well. I've been told a million times and ten fold that I'm hard headed. I know I am too sometimes to a fault though lol

    Here is something that you may want to try. A good quality ginger ale/beer, likes Reed’s. Sip it slowly at first. A little goes a long way. I think you will find it will help you feel better and soothing to your stomach.

    You can find plenty of references in Utube videos about doing this, if you have the time and inclination. They give you more idea than what you might think they could, and after you view a few of them, you tend to coalesce those ideas into new ones. :)

    Awesome! Some I've heard of on this list. Not too many though :) I love finding new music, but there isn't much good anymore. So finding music others listen to is always awesome! Thanks for the 1/4 of your mile long list haha. I'll check them out ;)

    For a suggestion go to YouTube, search for
    "long cool woman in a black dress mix"
    and you will get a great playlist that can burn a lot of miles.
    By the way I use the same mix as my exercise mix to keep me going. Got to work what little heart I have left after my heart attack that took my CDL.
    Thanks @Old Schooler
