    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).

    It's been two weeks since I've played the

    guitar, and honestly, I think I've been having withdrawals. Sometimes I'm just subconsciously playing air guitar. Hopefully it will stop today!

    It's official ... this dude is my hero.

    His version of thunderstruck that I posted a while back blew me away but this one is even better. I had chills the entire time. I'm just speechless ... Watch "Luca Stricagnoli - Sweet Child O' Mine (Guitar)" on YouTube https://youtu.be/Ok5d8nXAngw

    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 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.

    I've recently taken a liking into playing guitar

    although I'm not good at it. I've been having trouble playing a bar chord. I'm a beginner yet I can play lots of songs except those that have bar chords. I've been telling my friends that I'm good at it since most of them are beginners to. I hope I'll develop my guitar skills...

    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 want to learn how to play

    so bad. I got a guitar for Christmas and I tried learning through YouTube but after awhile I gave up and I think it would be better if someone was there to actually teach me so that they can point out what to do. I might get guitar lessons but my mom can't really afford it that...

    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...

    I started playing young.

    My dad taught me and I loved it. I was able to play in the jazz band at my school because I had prior experience. I've learned bass, ukulele and electric. I started with acoustic. I love music. I also play piano but definitely enjoy the guitar more.

    when you practice on your guitar for too long. Guess I can even scare off kids with these fingers.
