I Love Playing Guitar

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,512 People

    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...

    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 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

    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 guess music in general is a safe haven

    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 brings me peace. There's just something

    about sitting in my loft, playing through a book's worth of music, on my own, it's just so...peaceful.

    The most fundamentally trans-formative

    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.

    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

    I play an acoustic Jasmine Takamine mainly.

    In the last year, I have combined a type hammer-on and tapping so that when I pick up an electric, I have no difficulty playing crazy solos. However, I remember when I first started playing. I was asked by the school band to join in with them and play infront of an audience. I...

    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.

    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...
