    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 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.

    Alright I've been playing

    for little over 2 years and I still feel like I haven't learned anything. I've actually brought my pinky into the playing which is good. All the theory and stuff seems so overwhelming to learn and I don't know what scale shapes and things like that mean. I want to write a song...

    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 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...

    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!

    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!

    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...

    Been playing for around nine years now

    and I can remember the first thing I learnt was the intro to sweet child of mine. I don't mind learning other people's songs to jam along to but I much prefer creating my own songs and I spend most of the time I'm playing doing just that. Just recently started on an eight string...
