    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    <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...
