Re: Am I guitarist?

Life tends to happen. Been playing on and off since I was 12 years old. Had many reasons/excuses to stop playing. Almost sold my gear off three years ago. Ended up eyeing a beautiful pearl white Fender Strat and I was playing again. Even got me a good teacher. What was it 2005-2006 when you (GrungeS...

Re: What's Happening Everyone?

Knew there was somewhere welcoming and important I haven't visited in a while. :( Been spending my time learning how to read music sheets. I'm really enjoying it. Also spend a lot of the time learning pieces of songs related to melodies that my instructor gives me. Anywhere from solos to riffs and m...

Re: Ted Nugent has way better technique than Jimmy Page ever

Yeah for me. I can think of two Ted Nugent songs. Cat Scratch Fever and Stranglehold.

Some of the first guitar riffs I ever learned were from Jimmy Page.

Re: Life Getting In The Way

The need to play guitar still burns in you. It'll always be there. When you get the time pick it up and strum it a little. In no time it'll all come flooding back into you. You'll be playing Smells Like Teen Spirit once again. :D Back in 2011 during the summer I took all my gear into the local guita...

Re: --> Share things you've learned about guitar

The most important thing I was ever told: "Have fun".

Read a post where a GN member told a new guitar player that. That's what we should all remind each other when it gets tough while learning new songs, chord progressions, skills...

Re: If you hadn't played guitar.....

Would have to be violin for me. Just love the eloquence and aggressiveness of the violin. I could have learned even before the electric guitar caught hold of me when I was very young. My dad didn't see a future in me playing violin so he refused to pay for either renting one or buying. Been thinking...

Re: What would make you feel you’re now a “Good” player?

I'm having a blast learning right now. Being in a band would make it all the better. Went to my instructor's gig on Friday at a local bar and his band rocked. What a great goal it is and the reward of getting a crowd dancing is awesome to me. I was watching him play and a random woman came up to me ...

Re: Had a show last night and need to rant

Maybe the drummer's tempo was too fast. I've heard a similar argument between band mates (I'm not in a band) and not sure who was off a bit while hanging out at the guitar store. So and so threw off rhythm or drummer tempo wasn't right all the sudden. It's what gets me in trouble during jam lessons ...

Re: New Amp.....

I feel stupid. Didn't know I could tune my guitar with the amp by pressing "Tap". Also got help solving the choppy metal issues and how to erase after saving a setting. The owner of the guitar store was laughing when he found out I didn't read the instructions. You can do a lot of cool things with t...
