    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.

    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...

    I just put a 12 string on layaway.

    I got month to wait but I just love how it make simple cords sound beautiful. It's almost like a Mandocello, but with 2 more strings it's more toward the guitar side than the mandolin. Maybe I'll start learning more conventional music.

    A bluesy guitar is fabulous,

    so is a reggae guitar. But I like a rock guitar, playing a riff I can identify with in my bones. The lyrics to the sound must resonate too.

    Ever since I can remember I've loved music

    and esp the guitar. I can't even tell you exactly when that started but my Mum and Dad bought me my first guitar, a really cheap old classical when I was about 10. I can remember before that always have a "toy guitar" about the house which I strummed on listening to records...

    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.

    I love the guitar. My cousin gave me one last

    Christmas, but two of the strings are messed up and I never got a chance to fix them. Once I get the strings replaced I would really love to learn how to play.

    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.
