I started cause I was impressed by guitar.
Then I continued to play cause I wanted to learn more.
Now I play because music is my profession and I LOVE it. biggrin.gif

I voted others.

Well, guitar is my life. Its not only the most fun thing I do, its just what I want to do for the rest of my life. Hopefully I can earn a little money on it some day, and be a known and respected musician smile.gif

Exactly the same here biggrin.gif rolleyes.gif

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

You forgot to add on that poll mad. For the love of music, and guitar!!

Thats my reason. I just love the guitar, and the kind of music you can create from it.

And its also this. Its my life also. Im going to go to some guitar college. Maybe teach the guitar, and try to make it my career. I just love the guitar, so why not make a profession out of it like Muris has?

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.




This sounds alot like me as well.........Started as teen with an acoustic........ had a fender Strat in my 20's learned some basic chord's ,,,sold it to buy my wifes engagment ring........... And now I'm in my mid Thirty's trying again.. ( with more success ) hopefull for a little more out of it , if nothing more than a few good friends to jam with......

I play the guitar as a escape from all the rest of the crap in the world. War, Murder, Drugs, your not thinking about all the problems in your life when your playing the guitar. I wish to one day inspire others with my music and will always relate back to my good friends at Gmc for all that I learned smile.gif
