    Just A Beginner

    I picked up my first guitar this May. My grandfather gave one of his that he doesn't use to me. It's a middle of the road Ibanez acoustic. I'm just a beginner really. I know several chords and easy chord progressions, some songs with power chords, and a couple of scales, but I...

    Been Thinking About A Purchasing A Gibson Les Paul

    Any comments? Right now I've got a Hagstrom Viking. Pros and cons? Played a Les Paul a short while ago and loved the action and the overall feel of it.

    Spanish gypsy music. I love to play guitar

    with a few of my friends. We jam together playing classic flamenco tunes. This style of music is extremely pleasing. I love to jam, and sometimes add my clarinet to the situation, letting my friends play guitar.

    I started playing guitar

    when I was 12, but until a couple of years ago could only play simple, power chord centric music. I attempted to become good many times but never had the patience to keep up the effort for more than a few days. I'd hear a really talented new (to me) guitarist and instantly be...

    I can't even begin to describe the wonderful feeling I feel when I crank up my amp as loud as it'll go and play music. Especially being able to play a song by a band I love. I can't think of a better feeling in the world. It makes me feel like a total badass. I'm no where near...

    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...

    I spend more time playing guitar

    than I do doing anything else except sleeping. And on busy weeks I'll spend more time playing than sleeping. It's a pretty awesome way to make a living - I often still can't believe I get paid to do this.
