    I Wish I Have Four Arms

    It could be an abnormally grown tumor-like arm beside my waist or ribcage (as long as it isn't fatal); It could be a prosthetic arm; It could be a voo doo tricks or a curse that made me four-armed freak; An incomparable and unusual radiation that will let me turn into a beast or...

    My Story

    I tried learning to play the guitar as a kid twice. Both times I failed. I wanted to play the electric guitar, but the music store recommended an acoustical guitar to start. Then my parents signed me up for lessons. Each week was was learning a new string and playing some new...

    1970's And Beyond.

    I started to play in 1970 after hearing Led Zeppelin III on the then burgeoning f.m. rock radio. I started out with a very cheap acoustic guitar and an instructional rhythm guitar booklet put out by a local music store I saw on a cable call board channel for $5.00. I had one...

    My dad taught me when he had time

    for me. Now he is always at the hospital. (He is a surgeon not sick.) I find it to be relaxing. Music is one of the only thing that brings me joy,

    I just changed strings alone

    for the first time. My old guitar needed new strings so I gave it a shot and I also need a backup for the small performance I'll do with the bad i'm in friday. I had a frustration moment with the b string but I'm glad I cut the string longer just in case I had trouble. Now I...

    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 am a guitar player.

    I've playing for 4-5 months, and improved greatly. I practice for about 5-7 hours a day and I improved greatly I wish I could've started earlier :(. I'm 15 now but I know how to play many songs from Metallica, led Zeppelin, nirvana, pink Floyd, etc.

    Living Out Daddy's Legacy.

    I just started playing a few months ago. I do feel like I've picked up on it naturally. It is very easy. Not to mention I'm learning on an electric guitar...without an amp...or a tuner. :D My dad was phenomenal at playing the guitar, he passed away less than a year ago and left...

    I have 3 acoustic guitars.

    I have 2 electric guitars. My dad taught me how to play. He actually taught all of my siblings how to play. The thing about me is that in my room, I always have guitar picks everywhere. My favorite guitar is my 2nd acoustic guitar. My dad and I named it Blue, even though it's...

    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...

    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 am now at a point that I would like to write

    music about good people. I don't have any intention of being famous just the joy of making music and being able to entertain even just our dog.

    Georgia - Vance Joy, way too proud of myself

    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 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...
