    I love to play guitar I've been playing

    since I was nine. and over time it just becomes part of you. and it's what I do when I'm down it's like having another friend there. to be honest I know it sounds sad but it's like the best friend I have. I mean it's there for you when you need it and it doesn't fill your day...

    Such a beautiful instrument.

    Acoustic and electric. I wish I could play every genre of music on it.

    I enjoy playing guitar.

    Not only because I love music, but it also has a meditative aspect to it. When I play, my mind is clear and all the worries are slowly fading away.

    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 need to say I'm learning to play guitar.

    My dad started to teach me when I was 12 years old however he died before I could learn very much. So I hadn't picked it back up again until just recently. I am in a group that meets at the VA once a week it's called GIUTARS 4 VETS. They help veterans who have PTSD and teach...

    To anyone who plays the guitar

    or other instruments, how nice does it feel to just play for a while and forget everything? It's the best feeling in the world to me ^-^

    and new music comes out of strings. Love those moody compositions

    I'm not all that good at it though.

    It's not because I don't practice it's more I prefer piano and violin, I can still manage with most Arch Enemy songs though.

    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 all I do. I love music.

    It is the entirety of my life. The main reason I have no social life is because my best friends are my instruments, and my lovers are my songs. Not a lot of leg room for anyone else to join. Music Loves you too, Firefly.

    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!

    It's nice to get an ego check every

    once in awhile. I've been playing for a long time and am pretty confident in my capabilities, so I agreed to giving guitar lessons recently after not having taught in a few years. One of my students requests was blink 182's “Adam's Song”. For those who don't know it, it's a...

    any recommendations for a good set of acoustic

    guitar strings? I do a lot of finger picking and tend to use d'addario sets but was looking for a different sound. Thanks!

    I am stuck at work and could really use some

    alone time with my guitar. She is a cedar top Seagull that has a soft tone that always calms me. Yes, I could use some alone time with her.

    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...
