The reason I chose other is that I've always wanted to play and get good at the guitar and I finally broke down and started learning. If I had not stopped when i was a kid I'd have over 30 years experience. I have regretted stopping every day since I gave up my lessons at around 14 years old. I'm 47 now.

Eh.. I actually have more reasons:)
I can tell, that I want to impress others as well, as I love music and it is pleasure for me to play. And also, I want to make music (and I actually make.. but not as a guitarist yet:-P )
So can I choose more? :-D

I chose for entertainment... I want to be able to just sit round and just jam out for hours. Music is one of my top 5 things in life so it makes sense that I would want to learn how to make it as I know how to do all the others.

My reply is a lot like RobM's. I played a lot when I was in my teens and early 20's then quit. I'm not mid 30's and learning all over again.

I voted other, i would have chose entertainment but it didnt really cover all of why i play.One of the reasons i play guitar is to be able to be a part of all the music i love.I like being able to take listening to your favorite bands to another level.Actually being able to be a part and jam along with them is a great feeling and makes you feel like your onstage playing for 50,000 with them,if you playing it right tongue.gif .Playing also helps me get my anger out of my feelings as i can take it all out on the guitar,best theropy for me.Last but not least i play to get better for my son who is now 1year old.I plan to teach him when we is old enough and i want to show him everything there is to learn.The more stuff i know the more i can teach him along with the more bonding time i will have with him onsomething i love vey much smile.gif Guitar is just one of the greatest things i have ever did in life and never plan on stopping. cool.gif

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.

I chose other because nothing on there explains it fully. Of course i play for entertainment, but i also play as a form of self-medication if you know what i mean, my guitar got me through some pretty tought times in my life, and whenever i feel things arent going so good, i just pick up the 'ol guitar, and play away, next thing i know, im feeling great smile.gif
