Hey GMC! I'm hoping to connect with anyone out there who's taken a break from guitar for a few years as I have. I really want to get back into playing - but when I pick up my guitar, I'm so rusty - and I find it hard to just enjoy playing.

What should I do for a fresh start, to get inspired to play more? I simply don't have the hours of free time I did back in college when I'd play 2-3 hours a day. Please help me find that spark, or how you re-discovered it biggrin.gif

I have such great memories of this website - thank you Kris and company smile.gif

On my past two acoustic guitars, I cannot seem to bend my G-string a full step. For instance I cannot bend the 7th fret up a full step to an E. I have to almost break the string I bend it so hard, and even then it doesn't yield a full step.

Any suggestions?

Happy holidays GMC! I just got a new (used) Taylor 414-CE limited koa wood edition. It is one sweet guitar so far! I want to learn Brent Mason's "First Rule of Thumb" song:

But I think it might be a bit advanced for me at this time. Can anyone suggest a song that would help practice my fingerstyle/jazz technique to better prepare me for the First Rule of Thumb song?

Thanks smile.gif

Hey GMC... Haven't posted in forever it seems. Here's a nice find from one of my favorite country guitarists:

Hey GMC, been awhile since I've posted here - been busy with getting back into fall semester.

Anyways check out this song on Grooveshark. I am trying to figure out how I can imitate some of the lead guitar played in this song. I have the chords down:

A7 - A#/A - Bm - Adim2 (Key of A I think?)

It has a jazzy feel to it which I love, but I can't seem to get any good licks or improv going like the guitarist does in this recording.

Any help with the theory/tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
