WHEN DO YOU HAVE WHAT YOU NEED TO EXCEL WITHOUT WEAR AND TEAR? THE OTHER PART OF THIS QUESTION IS, ARE YOU WILLING TO DO WHAT IT TAKES TO BE ABLE TO PERFORM OR COMPETE WITH EASE AND POWER?

Once I acquired again from England to the US, I put the instrument down and by no means actually picked it up once more.
