This made me laugh

While checking out craigs list I came across this post:

Talented Guitarist Looking to Tour

My name is Josh and I am a skilled musician and guitarist. My plans for going to college fell through so I am currently looking to join a band that is touring or planning on touring and doing lots of work. I am a very committed person and am willing to go as far as the band is willing to go. I have lots of experience with playing in bands, playing shows, and I have been playing guitar for 8 years. I also sing and play a little piano. Please contact me if you are a serious band and you are in need of a guitarist. Thanks!

If only there were an "established band who had already put in all the grunt work and had worked their way up to being a touring band so we could jump on their band wagon" for every guitarist who thought they were good enough. I hear these bands go to Guitar Center to find new local talent. Maybe if you go there 8 hours a day and play through a dimed 150W amp someone will pick you up for their fall tour.

Feeling cynical,
