    I Fear It.

    It looked like the logo of this group is a Bass Guitar. Does anyone else realize this? But Anyways. I love to play acoustic guitar. I've been playing for two years now and it really helps me connect with myself, if that makes any sense

    I've been playing for about 10 years.

    I taught myself how to play the acoustic guitar, then I picked up an electric guitar one day and started playing it. I haven't played in a while, though. My little boy loves music and dancing, so I should play it more. I have two guitars. One of them is a Dean Exotica, and the...
