    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 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...

    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'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 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...

    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 ^-^

    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...

    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.

    I know I'm not so good at it,

    but i still love to play it. One of the few things I'm passionate about. I currently have a Mexican strat and some crappy acoustic my dad got for $20. I plan on buying a warmoth once I graduate.

    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!

    Music is the means by

    Guitar is life. My dream is a Les Paul Studio

    and a Fender Telecaster and Stratocaster. I also want pedals and a Divided by 13 and the Fender Blues Deluxe amps. That's a lot of cheese going into music.

    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...
