    My guitar has a metallic abalone inlay that's a

    kaleidoscope of turquoise, aqua, amber, copper, and purple, but it's hard to see in the picture. It's a phoenix and everything else is black. I wish I could take a picture of my guitar so it's more accurate, but my guitar's surface is sorta like a mirror and reflects everything...

    Music is my life. I listen to it,

    write it, play it, sing it, everything. I used to want to become a music teacher, but discovered my love for writing. Not necessarily writing music, but writing genre books. I feel like my passion is drawn more in that direction. But that doesn't mean I won't give up my love...

    I'm not 100 % new to this instrument

    but I'm not super experienced either. I just learned the solo of Smells Like Teen Spirit which I thought was going to be a big challenge because I always thought solos were something big that inly gods could do but some a pretty easy and Smells Like Teen spirit is one of then.

    Thanks all for being

    so receptive to my last post here :) I've been working on an independent album and just recorded a rough unplugged demo of a version of Cult of Personality I had in my head. Feed back and advice? The actual recording will most likely be plugged to get the best sound quality...

    How My Love For Guitar And Music Came To Be.

    I remember one afternoon in 1969 my mother and aunt were all excited about something they were going to buy. They left and returned with the Rolling Stones, Let it Bleed, album. There were a few relatives there and us kids were playing downstairs. I got tired and went upstairs...

    I wish I could play guitar

    for a living. Session work, in a band, or just playing gigs. Guitar consumes me, I watch videos on YouTube and spend hours dreaming of my next guitar or amp. I am a gear nerd and will always have an evolving pedal board.

    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'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.

    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...

    Guitar is life, and it's melody is the only

    voice I need to hear every day. The songs I write keep my emotions at bay and give my thoughts a home, when they would be shunned elsewhere. If I could, I'd live in California out of my car - it'd be a jeep wrangler. All I'd need is my guitar, gas and food money, and the...

    Before that I played alto sax through middle school and high school as well. It was tough but I'm so glad I hung in there :) I just bought my first acoustic electric. I've owned 2 electrics as well and of course my starting acoustic. I love indie stuff. I use a usb cable to run...

    Sad to say that I have neglected my guitar

    playing for the past month. What little free time I have at the end of the work day is devoted to family and fitness. Hopefully schedule will balance out soon. keep playing everyone, I do enjoy the songs that y'all share.

    I do reggae and ska is mainly what I play.

    It's so up beat you can never be down, sublime, dirtyheads, rhcp, slightly stoopid are just some influences.

    I've only been playing

    for a couple of years, but I've decided to try to make it as a musician. My father always listened to ACDC, Metallica, and Journey while my mother listened to Queen and The Beatles. I'm pretty grateful for them, because I probably wouldn't have given this dream a shot earlier...

    I found myself in a bit of a rut with the

    guitar playing recently. For a long time now I've been mostly a solo acoustic player. So I've mixed it up... set up my electric guitars and started relearning old material I used to play a lot - Thin Lizzy, Free, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Hendrix, Marillion, Rush etc. All my...

    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

    Guitar playing as made a huge impact on my life

    in many different ways. It's given me self confidence and something to live for. When I'm feeling down I usually grab my Axe and shred away. Sometimes in public if I hear a song that I know how to play on guitar my fingers move as if I'm playing along.
