"How have you personally changed as a guitar player?"
Matt: I think I'm more show oriented now than I used to be. I used to be feet planted and everything had to be perfect. And that to me was a good show. And being in Cowboy Mouth has shown me that the shows where I play perfectly have actually been the ones where Fred walks off stage and says, "What the hell was that, man? You weren't in it."
I said, "I was. I was right in the pocket."
Fred said, "I don't care how you played. It was boring."
If you are making a mistake but you are doing it at 200 miles an hour, Fred doesn't mind.
