I Love Playing Guitar

    It'S Been A 27 Year Relationship That Shows No Signs Of Getting Old... :)

    I love playing the guitar. I have a few. It is the most tactile, rewarding, absorbing thing I know apart from one other thing (ahem) and has the ability to transport me for a few minutes or a few hours. I like writing songs and recording, I have always loved playing live with...

    Feels Good

    When I play the guitar, it's as if I'm with my best friend. Someone who is always there and responds to my emotions, whether joyful or dark. I don't have to worry about anything in the world apart from the sound of the next chord or note. I can abandon my guitar playing...

    New Age Learning

    I started playing about half my life ago, when I was about 14 years old. It's funny, I look at some of these stories on there, and I see ppl learning how to play by watching tutorials on YouTube. Not that I think it's bad. I think it's awesome! It's such a different world now...

    The most fundamentally trans-formative

    Technically I have been playing guitar

    for 6/7 years but I refuse to say that because I never took guitar seriously until about 3 or so years ago. I wasted the first few years lesson wise by never practicing and never really learning how to read music. from there I learned rock music riffs and all my basics but I...

    I'm having guitar lessons

    since 2012 and I love it. Not only playing the instrument, but the music itself. The amazing happiness when I play it fast and well at the same time. Being on stage and having the notes heard by others. The fun in playing it myself, of hearing my own music, the peace it gives me...

    I was playing guitar

    and the sunlight was so bright that the phoenix on my guitar was reflecting the light EVERYWHERE. I absolutely love how it's a kaleidoscope of colors and how my guitar is practically a mirror. You can literally see my sweater on it! :D

    Playing guitar is one of the most amazing

    things to me. I've been playing guitar for 25 years now and could not imagine life without my guitars. I love playing music, creating music and escaping into music.

    It Can Help

    Dude, I'm bleeding. From playing guitar.

    As a hardcore guitar player, I get callouses all the time and as I'm typing this, my finger is bleeding. At least it's not getting on my guitar strings. I feel like I'm the only one whose finger callouses bleed from playing guitar. :3

    It's addictive. I play acoustic,

    electric and classical (which I'm currently doing my Grade 5 for). Once I start playing I can't stop until my hands ache, which is about 2 hours after I start.

    I took an interest in guitar about 2 years ago.

    Now, ever since last year, my uncle teaches me how to play since he knows how. I've learned a lot from him and I'm hoping to one day master the guitar just like I'm doing with piano. :)

    Playing guitar to me is the greatest feeling in

    the world. I am a quiet guy so adding distortion and cranking up the amp as loud as I can gives me an awesome feeling. I was always a drummer and guitar was something I just did on and off. Recently I have almost become obsessed with playing my guitar so if I miss a few days of...

    My guitar has a metallic abalone inlay that's a

    How My Love For Guitar And Music Came To Be.
