One thing I realised yesterday is: when it comes to guitar playing, it's not only attitude, but also the exact mood or feeling you have when you play a certain piece of music. e.g. I was trying to come up with a nice track for the hobo blues collab by Ivan, but in the last two weeks I was either happy or angry, always full of energy and playing metal and rock stuff when I picked up my guitar. Each time I tried to play a blues, it sounded awful. I hit the right notes, but the feeling wasn't there. Yesterday I felt a bit sad or rather melancholic, and guess what? The blues just felt like the right thing to play, and it totally worked.
So it's not only about attitude, but on top of that your mood and feelings.

Attitude is the main thing, not just attitude on stage, but towards music and life in general, it's a must.


+1 Thats exactly what I meant!!!

A really funny thing has been going on. Recently I've been readjusting my way of living so that I can feel I'm doing things the way I want to. And something happened - it feels as if something like 30% of the limitations between my and my guitar just vanished. I feel the guitar. I feel the music. My technique has improved, too, but the main thing is the attitude towards music.

This is amazing.


I'm happy for You man! Thats what its all about - if You're happy with Your life and tries to look positive on things even in the darkest moments of life, this will also reflects in Your playing!!!

very good point!

I would add that attitude is not only putting on some weird hat, or wearing some cool hair cut but actually taking the risk of doing something demanding of yourself that could challenge the standard taste from people....

take Dream Theater, they are not a very visual band but to me they have a lot of "attitude" in their music, more than attitude I would call it "feeling"

Yeah attitude can be expressed in a number of ways. Visual decorations and stuff is just one way. I much more enjoy the one that comes from the way you play an instrument. You can play it softly or really rocking hard and both will transfer a message (attitude).
