    New song: Submission Now I spoke about

    submission, but sometimes there wasn't a rope break. Ya see it was no disqualification, so it was my job to keep you safe... Go all out for that crowd, house shows, tv, never let em down. Leave it all there in the ring...it's the only way you'll here em sing. When it's not my...

    I guess music in general is a safe haven

    for me when i am bored, sad, happy, or just cuz i have nothing else to do. It helps me be less insane.

    I can figure out the chords of a song usually

    after a few minutes of listening to it. Sitting with tje guitar, I start by listening to the bass to find the song's tonality and I try to recognise the chord progressions from here. If it doesn't work I try to guess the chords from the melody, but I find that the bass is the...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Today I learned how to play freedom of 76 by

    ween. If you've never heard of them look em up. It's one of my favorite tracks they've made and I'm in love with the song and the band. I also painted a Boognish on my guitar, hmu if you want to see it.

    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.

    Have any of you been across I-80 in Wyoming

    during a snow storm? Or any desolate lonesome stretch of highway in a snow storm?

    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

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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 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.
