What's the best thing about your computer ? It's probably going to be the same answer for most of us but for me it's obviously the fact that it enables me to record music. Without it, I'd find things very difficult indeed. So I am incredibly grateful to this amazing machine !

Aside from that, it also allows me to make and edit videos and artwork ! Thank you computer - I salute you ! biggrin.gif

maybe more an 'internet' thing but being able to jam with guitarists of mega level from all over the world is kinda amazing when I think about it. when I first picked up a guitar as a kid I sent away for a guitar course on cassette ( remember those things! ) and I never had contact with anyone who could really play.

I might not be a rocket scientist but I know how to rock it

WIthout it, I would have never met people that are just as crazy or even crazier than I am..from all sorts of weird places like the UK, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Romania...even the United States, India and New Zealand...and all other places that I forgot now laugh.gif

Hey, did you know you can meet chicks using your computer??

Plus playing games like Diablo 3.

Oh, and the recording stuff is also pretty nice.

Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.

Hmmm....I can think of 4 best things about my ancient computer


1. I can use stuff like pandora internet radio and Itunes to listen to music I may not otherwise have got to enjoy, since there are no good music stores where I live. I could name probably a dozen artists I enjoy that I probably wouldn't even know about but for the internet.

2. I can record music and then be able to share it with others, as well as listen to and enjoy what they have recorded as well. This is a direct reference to the collabs here on GMC, which I love to do because I am kind of a lone wolf musician where I live, and don't get to play music with other people very often because everybody here likes country or bluegrass, and I play Jazz, Blues, and Rock.

3. Computer Games! I never was much of a console/gaming system type of guy, but I love to play and mod computer games. Most of the ones I play are ancient history in gaming years, but I still enjoy them.

4. I like to work with the hardware and software of a computer, and eventually I want to build my own.

Best thing about my computer?

Attached Image

I can pawn it for more in a pinch cause it has that logo?

Other than than that, MUSIC! Being able to make music with a computer is wonderful thing.
