Just had a very nice, and very cheap lunch in town, sitting in the sun on a day in December biggrin.gif - just one reason why I love living in Spain.

I really don't know why I picked up a guitar. I guess I was just bored one day and decided, hey why not put a guitar between those hands while I sit my ass in the couch all day. I think DT has some help with the whole learning guitar thing. I think for the most part, I don't think I ever progressed on playing but I could care less. I also gave up shred and I'm happy. Riffs are so much better than shred anyway. Yea I went there tongue.gif

My very first guitar, only four years old. It was a small, cheap, first act acoustic guitar. I had fun with it for like a week and never played again.

At the age of 10, I was bored so i looked at musical instruments on ebay, all kinds. Guitars seemed to be my favorite and i really wanted an electric.

My parents said no at first, thats when I went back to the acoustic i got years ago and used a book taht came with it. It had very easy songs and chords in it and I practiced those. When I look back now I was no better tahn when i started... but my grandma gave me her acoustic guitar. This was a real one rather than the old cheap one.

It was a bit big for my size but I didn't care, i continued with that book for about a month when coming home from school I saw an electric guitar box laying on the porch. **** I was so happy, I grabbed it and ran in side and showed it to my mom. She said it was for one of my friends on my street. I didn't believe her.

A few weeks later Christmas arrived and when I opened it, I was so freakin happy. wink.gif I played it immedietly and never wanted to get off of it. I started my first guitar lessons, only for four weeks and hated them, so i quit. After that I went on my own and tought myself nearly everything over the next year and a half.

Notes, Chords, Scales, Harmonics, Palm Muting, etc... Then GMC came into my life and helped me SO much. I didn't want to stop playing. I loved the guitar so much, that I finially got a new amp, then a new guitar later that year. My progress was improving so much that I wanted to start lessons again, so I did. About two months later brings me to current time. biggrin.gif

P.S. That guitar that I saw on the front porch, well the guitar shop sent the wrong one, they sent a bass first. Then my parents informed them that it was the wrong guitar. We got to keep the bass guitar ( with amp case and strap) for free.
