There were two events that happened 40 years apart, one in 1980 and the other two weeks ago that changed the course of my life. "The Road Taken" is the story of how two life failures (getting rejected from music school and losing a record deal) dramatically shaped my life's trajectory and brought me here today.

You probably don't remember me. . .but I remember U! I was skeptical at first. . .I came to your first seminar. . .(4 Summers ago in Decatur). thinking "Is this guy for real?" You're wife showed up in the middle of the seminar With your kids Dylan et al. . .and you began to cry (slightly) when they all showed up to support you. You asked them something about a pixar movie thing. . one of the children (maybe Dylan) was spot on with the correct response~I thought to myself. . .This is a good man. . .This is a good dad. . .This guys' the real deal!" Thanx Rick! I will always follow you! You are true!

I have cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and I was born with that cleft palate and lip. But I'm grateful for all of those things. When I first heard AC/DC at the age of 9, I knew I had to do the guitar thing. Thanks to having cystic fibrosis, Gibson guitars gave me a Les Paul through the Make-A-Wish foundation. Marshall amps gave me a cool Valvestate 2×12 and that rig put me on my path. I've never given up on music. Being sick and spending well over a year in the hospital throughout my life, is the reason I met my girlfriend who was my nurse! We've been together for 15 years now. Don't get me wrong; being sick certainly sucks, But it allowed me to rock and find love in this life. Thank you Rick. And thank you to those reading my comment. Rock on.

Rick, young people REALLY need to hear this type of message, repeatedly, until it is visceral, in their gut. I have countless stories of people who took their perceived failure and turned it into something greater than they could imagine. I have a hundred times that of people who gave up. What a great story, thank you so much for posting, and thank you for your tireless work in supporting music. God bless!

The old adage is true: If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself. Ignorance and helplessly depending on others is just a bad detour. Life won't tell you that mistakes and failures are generally unintentional but they are our best teachers and if you do it right you make them less and temporary as time goes by. Only you alone are responsible for your own mortality and success. Like all the greats before you, you have to devise your own rules and blaze your own trail. You'll never master your destiny by conforming to others or have them misjudge you or determine your worth.

I know that panic-freeze feeling all too well. I used to get it in exams really bad, and now I realise what it was exactly.. for me at least, it was dissociating from stress. It still happens every now and then and it's nothing to do with the topic, for me it's often a mix of the person, and the mood I am in. It happens the most during debating a topic these days.

Segovia was not the inventor of the classical guitar, even though he would’ve liked everyone to think so. There were hundreds of great guitarists in the 18th and 19th centuries. The father of the modern classical guitar was Francisco Tarrega.

Music School can be great, but honestly it isn't the end all be all of things. I entered music college for two degrees, one being Guitar. I dropped off in the first semester, it was boring as hell. The other degree is for composition, which i also dropped. It was all too pretentious for my liking. Great Story Rick!

Age 14 I was run over by a car- used the lawsuit money to go to Williston Academy, a private school- my Dad loses his job and I am enrolled in public school- I meet my wife in the lunch line- this year we celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and my band will be playing at it

Hi Rick, I really enjoy your channel. I happened to be a music major down in Mansfield Pa. in the early 80's and played many places in the Southern tier of NY. Including the Waterfront in Ithaca. My friend took guitar from Steve at IC and I got to see Steve play with Jerry Niewood at Chuck Clarkes in Elmira. I wonder if our paths ever crossed. I also played at PJs in Horseheads and the Painted Post Holiday Inn. Upstate always had a great music scene. Take care, Dave F.

Always liked the saying that Life is what happens while you are making plans. When I got kicked out of my band, er downsized, it hurt. I felt like I was a ok musician. Somehow I ended up in the bell choir at church. Mesmerized by the clean pure bell tones. Imagine the poor aspiring rock guitarist with dreams of shredding leads humbled,knocked down and broken by trying to play three notes. Just three bells while some juggled many. My weaknesses were laid out. We had a director, discipline, 1e and a 2e and a, reading music, dynamics,,baton and no drums or bass to lean on. Long periods of nothing,just count,oh no I lost it. Listen for something familiar,watch the baton,breath,relax, I'm back on,I can do this. I found what was missing from my guitar. Why it never felt comfy. It's like the band was playing and I was playing along with them but we weren't one. I'm so grateful for being kicked out of the band. I wasn't really ever with them. Years later we're back together. Older and wiser and sounding better. I'm also thankful for the patient kindness of those in the bell choir ,the directors and the church. I met other great musicians and got to play along with them. I used to think that musicians had to look a certain way. Wow was I wrong. Normal looking housewives and bald old guys have tons of game. More music in their pinky than all the songs I memorized. Video tried killing the radio star but they hid in the church.

Hi Rick! Thanks for being an insightful person, something that seems to be rare, and getting even rarer by the day! I believe that that's your most appealing attribute/attitude , which makes for a positive connection between you, and the viewer(s). Your honest approach, and an unbiased one, is VERY refreshing! You seem to be a student of the "less is more" school, which is twinned to the Confucius standard, "He who speaks ... does NOT know .... and he who knows ... does NOT speak" is proven once again,, to be our ONLY stance, if we value truth! I loved your interview with my number 1 guitarist bar NONE, LARRY CARLTON, and I know Larry loved it too! It was very evident in his demeanor! I've met Larry several times and got to be around him enough through the years to know how he reacts to people. He can be a bit standoffish, and cool towards you if he's feels that you're not genuine, or insincere! I've had 3, or 4 fairly long moments of being with him, waiting to do some minor interview/review(s) at concerts. But in your interview Larry is wide open with a smile to boot!!! Rick thank you for your honesty and your talents!!!! Ciao Sal.

Love the story it is a great one to share as a lesson in life however and this has to be the most novice of questions ever but how does learning such obscure music history a jump off point into the hear and now of your life? I remember an episode of the show "King of the Hill" when Bobby was trying to learn the classics of renaissance comedy by becoming" Tartufo the Spry Wonder Dog" Can you still play such pieces and if so would you be afraid of getting pelted with tomatoes if you did so in public?

I live near two fairly big state universities and auditioned to be a voice major at both schools twice. The first time, I was actually sent an acceptance letter from the music school at the university I wanted to attend more, but the problem was I was a community college student and my grades at the time were terrible, so transferring and actually being accepted by the university itself would've been an issue. When I finally improved my community college grades and was ready to graduate with an Associate's degree, I auditioned for both universities to be a voice major again. This time, I wasn't accepted by the music school at the university I wanted to attend more, but I was accepted to the other university's music school, so that's where I ended up going.

In my 67th year I can honestly say no-one taught me as much about music theory as you have. I've earned my living as a bass player for a while - best income I ever earned (better than senior management) ..knew very little theory, I was all about shape copying, guessing and sounds right.

Rick, I learned the same lessons in my life. When I look back on my life, there are things I would have done different knowing what I know now. But, had I not taken the paths I did, I would not have my beautiful kids, I would have not gone to law school and not become a Judge . So I though I regret the breakup of my first marriage for the hurt that resulted, I had to marry my second wife to have my kids. Etc., etc., etc.

The amount of and excitement of reaction vids to "old" music is very encouraging for the future. Seems like kids didn't hear enough a variety of music in the late 90's till now due to the music distribution problem. Now with the internet they are and are talking about it. I say we are on the cusp of something huge as they grow and learn music themselves like never before. Access to the greats of the past have never been so apparent and truly good art always pushes into the future and drives the boat.

It’s a wonderful story indeed. But consider this. The producer who let you down really betrayed you. He knew that he had done wrong, and in our industry it was probably some kind of drug or alcohol problem or psychological problem. He was calling to apologize. I don’t know whether you excepted the apology or not, but the point is, and this is the point that I don’t think you bring to light in your wonderful talk, when people do us wrong, it’s up to them to ultimately take responsibility for the hurt they have brought to you and your friends and family. If they don’t take responsibility, then you are the one that has to bear that burden. And because the person that has done us wrong won’t admit it, they end up pointing fingers, lying about us, and the hurt continues. So I think it’s incumbent upon us when we are hurt by others to be gracious enough to except their apology, but more than that we should constructively engage them to say, “ OK, I accept your apology but how have you changed your life? What amendments have you made to your behavior? “ We’re all familiar with people who constantly apologize to us for screwing up, “oh I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry.” So Rick, you ended up where you ended up because you’re a brilliant compassionate talented human being. If you’re like me, you measure your success on seeing how your life has positively affected everyone else’s life. It’s OK to have money in the bank it’s OK to be powerful it’s OK to be successful, but it’s not OK to do those things at the expense of other peoples emotional well-being and personal safety. Keep doing your wonderful work and keep witnessing and telling the truth. It’s too bad that we don’t live in a society where people like you could actually be presidents of institutions and so forth. The problem is that healthy well-balanced truly generous people like you aren’t allowed into that special club! What we get are the 1%’s, and recent psychological investigation has pointed out that many of these Tip top people in our society who become leaders are actually psychopaths!
