    I Don't Do Requests

    Been playing since I was 12 years old and I'll always think of myself as 'still learning'. Comparing your guitar ability to that of others is like being a gunslinger in a cheesy western movie - there's always a faster gun. At some point you need to stop being concerned about...

    I'm a lead guitarist

    for my own and my friends band, I'm not great, I don't shred massive licks and solo like the greats, but what I can do sounds immense. In in two Nu-Metal bands, which are Stonigma and Cereal, Stonigma has the nice dynamics of Nu-Metal, but in my rough copy of Incantation it has...

    I've been teaching myself

    for about four years now :) It's tough going! I also built an electric guitar - see the photo. It's Steampunk inspired (supposed to be).

    I play acoustic and sing!

    It's one of my favorite things to do. It calms me down when I am angry or nervous about something. I want to be in a band so badly!

    I haven't played in a while.

    ... More and more, recently I am longing for the experience of creating music with my finger tips. That kind that touches someone's soul with a gentle caress. Sing lyrics as they come to me, then leave from my lips. Hear the strings resonate the tone of my thoughts when played at...

    I have played guitar

    for 4 years. I love it. Especially playing the electric guitar because I NEED distortion :P. I have an ESP/LTD Ec-256. It's a beautiful honey burst with a little bit of worn spots to give it more of that tough rock look. Unfortunately for my guitars I became a bassist. There are...

    My Story

    I played guitar since I was in 5th grade.

    The guitar is not even mine, its my sister's guitar. I stop playing guitar every year because I was lazy and sometimes busy. I played so many songs back then and now I just forget how to play them. Any suggestion of a good song?

    I started learning guitar

    when I was about ten, and I learned pretty quick. My aunt taught my cousin and I at the same time, so we learned the same songs at the same time. We used to play together whenever we saw each other, but he's not even in the country anymore. I still know a lot of current songs...

    I'm horrible at it though.

    But I have to remember I've only played for less than five months. I can't expect myself to be amazing yet. Oh and barre chords are *******.

    How I Started

    I never knew how to play a guitar. At first, there wasn't anything that seemed to interest me about it. During elementary, I would hear some of my friends play it. Once, I heard one of my friends play "More Than Words" and she just sang it so beautifully. It was then that I...

    I can't say I'm an expert

    or anything, but I absolutely love the sound of an acoustic guitar. Playing guitar was one of those things I just happened to pick up so I can sing while also playing music. But I fell in love with hearing merely the acoustics. I wish I had the time to play more often, but I'm...

    I used to dislike the instrument,

    alot. I would roll my eyes when someone showed off their skills and was tempted to suggest that they learn to play a real song, not just stuff on the radio. Then I met a guy who plays. He eventually turned into a romantic interest, then briefly into my boyfriend, and shortly...

    I'm playing acoustic guitar

    since past 2 years but my voice is too harsh for singing. So I stopped playing guitar & started to loose my interest. but because I miss playing guitar so much, I have started learning solo on acoustic watching youtube, so that I can keep my interest the same :)

    I played guitar since I was in high school.

    I love the sound of guitar instruments. I've never took course of guitar, I practice by myself. I can play guitar all night long, especially when I was down. Guitar was my best friend when I was lonely.
