Frankly, I'm still waiting for that magic pill. They can give you a pill to sterilize and one to fertilize, one to keep you awake and one to put you to sleep, etc...so where is the one to make you an instant guitar guru?



Actually i don't think I would like that. I'm busting my butt practicing 2+ hours a day + going to a weekly lesson + doing lessons here on GMC to learn how to be a good maybe great guitar player some day. When I finally get there I know for sure I will look back and smile as I know how hard it was for me to get there. The feeling of accomplishment I will have will be like nothing else I've experienced. I've always wanted to learn to be a great guitarist and now I'm doing it.


Imagine taking a pill and then being a virtuoso instantly without having to do anything at all other than swallow. No Thanks, I'd rather practice, work hard and enjoy the ride while I'm getting there.

Ya but when they do make this pill then everyone will be shredding their fingers to the bone, and it won't be special anymore.

EDIT: Didn't see the post above me, good point. I'm with him ^^

I will actually kill the man who invents that. That would be like taking Generation after Generation of guitarists, all the legendary names, and unknown ones who worked hard for there skill and saying "Muisc shouldnt involve work, it should be easy, mechanical, assembly line music"

If that man ever invents that pill, he shall not live long!

Indeed...

When everyone becomes a great guitarist, nobody will be a great guitarist anymore.

Im not sure if i typed that correctly, but i hope you get the idea.

Until somebody combines the magic pill WITH hard work- d'ya think of that? hehe

They'd open up a black hole on the guitar neck- that would suck in the audience.

Well almost...

I seen this thing on Myspace, about the top 10 Best guitar learning sites, that is reviewed by a genius or w/e. I thought it was funny. GMC wasnt on there at all. I was thinking it was going to be. But it was a disappointment to me!!

All of those "...in 60 minutes" should be avoided! There is no magic - just practice! A lot of practice! smile.gif

Only one thing you can learn to do in 60 minutes or less and It's not learn to play the guitar, lol.


I actually learned that in 30minutes biggrin.gif


--------------------
My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.
