i thought it'd be pretty cool. my granddad went down to the dump and saw some guy about to throw an acoustic away. he went up and asked if he could have it. he gave it to us and my dad put some strings on it. i started playing and then bought an electric guitar. i was just playing simple songs and chords. then i heard players like vai and wanted to be like that, so i started finding out everything i could about playing so i could learn. whilst looking around the internet i came across GMC. now 2 years after i started i see why that guy wanted to throw away that guitar, it sounds awful and the neck is bent so badly that the strings sat about 2cm above the fretboard! laugh.gif i put a bar over the strings at the bridge to hold them down. but it's still barely playable. it doesn't stay in tune and the intonation is off. i can't bring myself to throw it away though.

I had no particular reason for guitar. It was just a sentence from my mom: "Hey, you wanna try guitar?" - "Yeah, why not!"

And here i am now smile.gif

As I grew up, I became more and more fascinated with music. At some point, I realized that I wanted to be a musician. I think, in the end, I chose guitar because of it's versatility. I think you can do more with an electric guitar than any other instrument in the world.

Got a guitar cause Canon in D ( laugh.gif ). Never played for a few months though.

Then about 6-7 months ago I kept hearing people say how good this kid was at guitar, and I wanted to be that kid. Now I kind of just want to be better than him. It's not personal or anything, really just makes me play more. Just want to surprise him when I eventually jam with him.

Still getting there though wink.gif.

I'm a super competitive guy if you wondered.

My music life started when i was a child in a sense, i came to New York when i was a kid and i wouldn't talk at all(i was talking when i was in england) so my mum decided to bring me to music therapy, besides from meeting the lead singer from Aerosmith when i was 3 years old haha, i learned that i loved to make music. After those therapy lessons i had no other experience with an instrument except i had ALWAYS wanted to play guitar. Finally in 10th grade i decided to take up guitar, with the support of my friend(i was too nervous to start it outta fear of failing) i found something i loved. Before guitar i didn't even have a clue what i wanted to do with my life, i felt kinda hopeless, but now i notice i want to be a musician and want to go to a music school for college, it makes me excited about my future, something i've never felt before. If it wasn't for guitar, i would be a mess right now.

The thing about being really stupid, is that there are a zillion ways to be a moron. There are usually several ways to be intelligent, given a situation, but it is a small finite number. But there are always a zillion ways to be to blithering idiot. So finding a new way to have the intellect of an artichoke is nothing to be proud of really, it is easy to do.


So true... To bad im still an artichoke haha
