nothing is wrong - what are you scared of?
i was planning on doing something similar to this last summer. I was going to shave my head and take a picture every day for a year without cutting my head/facial hair. It is still in the works once i decide when i want my head shaved :o

there is one video somewhere of a bro in jail or something that took a picture every hour on the hour for like 3 years or something. I will post it if I can find it.. but not likely i guess.

here is another similar page.. it sort of tracks a family history by taking the family picture every year on a certain date since like the 70s.

I'm not a fan of King (either of them actually), as his technique is very sloppy. Thanks for the rec though. :-)

Erik Mongrain reminds me of him for some odd reason.

Have you heard anything by Don Ross or Stanley Jordan? Check out "Afraid to Dance" for the former and "Autumn Leaves" by the latter.

Tommy Emmanual, Oshio Kotaro, Franco Morone, Adrian Legg and John Renbourn are also good. Especially those last two. Legg is probably the only tuning peg virtuoso out there.

It is the result of a protein called sonic hedgehog homolog (SHH). (The unlikely sounding name of this protein was inspired by the Sonic the Hedgehog videogame character and is part of an idiosyncratic naming tradition in molecular biology research that some have criticized as frivolous.)
