    Screaming From With In!

    When I hear a really good guitar player make his guitar scream, I feel it inside my body, as if its coming from the very depths of my own soul. As if he is playing evey tragody, every fear, every nightmare, I have ever felt. And making it come alive with every riff.

    Like No Other

    The sound of a guitar has only one thing in common with other instruments. It can't be duplicated. You could play a song on the piano and it would sound entirely different from if you played it on the guitar. To try an describe it's sound would be hard because you can't really...

    I think I am more excited about this than she is...  although I haven't let on yet.I grew up in a guitar playing household.  Mom & Dad would have friends over and I'd listen to them play and sing while I was up in bed trying to sleep.   We'd go away on vacation and I loved to...

    While My Guitar Gently Weeps

    I adore the sound of guitar. The soundtrack of my life is composed of guitar-driven rock/pop. There's something very moving, beautiful, and timeless about the sound of a guitar.

    I don't play the guitar.

    I tried lessons once upon a time. It didn't stick. I Wish it had! My hands were just not coordinated enough. I love the sound a guitar makes. I love a guy that can play and sing.

    <insert Some Awesome Solo Here>

    More so electric guitars. Acoustic guitars sound good too, but electrics can create so many more sounds. From a mellow 3 chord tune to a BLOW-YOUR-MIND 4 minute solo, it all is wonderful to hear. Any two guitarists could play completely different. (Rarely ever similar and never...

    Motivation

    I saw electric guitar covers of old rock songs. I loved the sound soooo much. And I can't deny that an acoustic has its own special magic. There's a great sense of joy playing with a guitars strings and making sounds. I want to learn more. It's another struggle, but well worth it...

    Love It

    First of all, I am barely competent myself, never had lessons (piano was forced on me instead) and learned from magazinesand the old OLGA. I have a deep lovefor acoustic; its pure and requires much more precision. Doyle Dykes is the best ive ever seen or heard.

    So Awesome

    I just love the sound that comes off those strings sometimes. It might be acoustic or some nice riffs from a thrashing metal song, it just depends of course. Overall, guitar is my favorite instrument.
