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

I am in my second year of college. and about 6 months ago i picked up my friend's guitar, and he showed me a tab for the intro to "Good riddance" by Greenday. after i got that down. i became addicted, and havent looked back since.

i play/practice almost everyday until my fingers get tired.

im still not very good, but im getting better every day... tongue.gif

When you hear something that you really like, take guitar and kill the beast.

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.
