    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...

    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've been playing guitar

    for two years now. Im finally getting comfortable with people hearing me sing amd play. The reason why I started was my great uncle (more like my grandpa) wanted me to. And I started spending more time with him. He's 70 years old and blind but still plays guitar every day. If...

    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 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...

    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 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?

    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...

    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...

    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'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 :)
