    True--or online.

    But play some guitar as well.

    Our local library has tons of videos on DVD. Movies, tutorial stuff...
    Maybe yours does as well.
    (Not only for the duration of the games, but now that you are retired and have more time, you may find a new source of entertainment and knowledge.)
    I bought a relic'd guitar because I liked the way it sounded. Then I refinished it because I didn't like the way it looked.

    The first few times I tried to watch DVD's at friend's houses, I became profoundly ill within a matter of minutes. I've been consciously avoiding DVD's ever since. I believe it has something to do with sound.

    What kind of system did he have?
    Full surround speakers? Maybe overdone for the room or misplaced? Maybe that was well done & it was the volume?
    Or did the sound just come from the TV?
