I Love Playing Guitar

    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

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I picked up my first guitar at 11 years old,

    and I haven't put it down since. It's truly amazing when you find the one thing that fuels you, and gives you a reason to want to express yourself. When I'm playing - I don't have to talk, in an awkward attempt at stating EXACTLY how I feel. Every empty space is filled, and...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    How My Love For Guitar And Music Came To Be.
