Hello everyone! My name is JD and I am a Anthropology student at a University in Southern California that has a interest in learning guitar and about why people play the instruments they do. I have played Electric guitar/bass and Acoustic guitar on and off since 9th grade and have had a developing interest as I've gotten older. I'm basically creating this account to get back into the mix of learning guitar and music theory as well as to try to interview some willing participants on why they play the certain instruments the do to the certain types of music you play and why. If you'd be interested please feel free to message me!! Thanks for reading

Hi one and all. I am Pete, living in Nottingham (U.K) Have been in a few bands but many years ago {late 70's} have been away from guitar for a l o n g while due to lack of funds. Just recently i was given {well loaned} a guitar and practice combo (delighted to say the least ) i can't get to grips with it yet, got a really bad shoulder pain making the top end almost a no go area, but hope that improves soon. I am not really a lead guitarist, i am a wanna be lead guitarist, just need to get some speed down on the frets, hope that happens. At 53 years of age, i am still living for music and get the buzz for playing stuff. Mainly into HM/Glam rock/Soft rock. Favourite guitar Gibson SG {used to own one, but not now} The loaned guitar is a Fender Telecaster and a Marshall 20 watt practice combo. I quite like the combo, the input for cd or as i am doing pc is a great idea, saves having to set something else up to play along with.... just plug the laptop in and away i go. The sound is quite good. The guitar isn't what i would like to play on, but it's better than nothing. I am hoping to get an SG, it will be a copy, but i love the look of these and the sound is much more me. I am an AC/DC nut, also from the past Slade. Well that's me. Great to be here, the site is brilliant, thanks for having me.

Played piano as a kid, and now playing drums in a band in Suffolk (UK) but have always wanted to play guitar. Tried years ago and couldn't get into it at all.

Bought my first guitar (10 special from eBay) and am hooked. Just received my new guitar (Fender Squire acoustic) and am now borderline addicted.

Loving it, but please tell me, is it normal for my left hand's fingers to hurt all the time. the callouses are developing nicely, but it still hurts if I play for more than 40 minutes or so.

Anyway, got the android app, and am now using the website as well.

Thanks folks, great website.

Just popped my cherry, so I thought an intro is warranted. I'm Ken, from Warren, MI. I'm 48, disabled, with WAY too much time on my hands, so I figured I'll try to learn bass & guitar as a "hobby". I'm so a NooB at this, but, hey, we all started somewhere, right?

Dunno why I'm writing this since no-one's going to read it, but OH WELL.
I'm a 20-year-old CompSci student: Londoner studying in St Andrews. I got a Strat Pack about eight years ago but only started playing semi-regularly four years ago. Unfortunately, 'playing semi-regularly' here means 'noodling around aimlessly', so I thought about my short- and long-term guitar goals and wrote myself a practice schedule for this week. Three days in, I'm finding myself upping the time I practice for every day because I feel like there's so much interesting stuff to work on - and I keep coming up with some great insights and ideas!

I've played the violin for 15 years and used to study that and the clarinet at a specialist Saturday music school before university, so I've always had a lot of music in my life. My heart tells me that that's what I want to do (only realised this recently - bit of a waste of a CS degree...), so I really need to get practicing! :P Hopefully I'll learn something from these forums.

I still haven't upgraded from my Strat Pack - don't even have a distortion pedal, which is a bit of a problem if you're as extreme a metalhead as me XD I do, however, since my amp is a bother to take on a six-hour journey, have a little Vox Amplug Metal headphone amp which does a decent job and is well worth 30. I feel like I should improve more before I upgrade and then get something pretty nice. I dunno. I'm a cheapskate, even for a student. XD

Oh, yeah, if you want anything tabbed out, you're welcome to hit me up (perfect pitch makes it pretty easy :P)

.

As long as it's just from the strings cutting into your fingers, it's probably fine*.

I'm having a very hard time uploading wolfmother's 'cosmic egg' in the acoustic version. I'm new and haven't had the chance to really explore the website, but I'm wondering if this is normal. I've only managed to get to work once in about 10 tries.
