    I'll be 57 next month,

    and I've been playing since before Kindergarten. I have been able to perform anything I have ever wanted to on the fretboard, but my depressive behavior has kept me 'under the radar' so to speak. Of course there are millions of guitarists out there, and some of them are...

    I have been playing guitar

    for only four years but I'm at a skill level of those who've been playing twice or three times that. Living in a small community, I struggle to find guitar players who can play along with me and end up teaching people or making people upset or frustrated more often than not. I...

    Losing Focus...

    I've been playing guitar now for 24 years. I started when I was bought a guitar for my 7th birthday. I got to a really good standard if I may say so...playing Satriani and Vai stuff. Then things took another path and now I barely get time to play. I need something to enthuse me...

    Playing Guitar saved my life.

    I was extremely depressed and suicidal, the only comfort from my sister, best bud, mom, and my dogs. Them my mom saw an ad in the news paper (a guitar and amp set for $230 and a half-year of Lessons for $50). She suggested it, and I tried playing, and to be honest, I couldn't...

    And I'm so passionate about playing my guitar.

    I've been playing guitar

    for about 8 years now. Just a couple months ago jumped out of my comfort zone and got a 7 string. No doubt it's different with that extra string but still just as fun. Just upgraded my pick ups to seymour duncan pegasus and sentient 7s. The tone is beyond what I imagined could...
