Greetings, n00bs!

Welcome to UG! The best advice I can give you is to read the rules, and then follow the rules. Play nicely, and you'll get a lot of enjoyment from the forums.

Hello everyone, I am glad to be on the forums, I realistically won't be posting all the time however I am in need of some "guitar related" advice and would hope that I can hopefully find some pretty good answers to my questions. I am happy to be apart of the forums

I'm just getting back into guitar after a hiatus of over fifteen years. Seems like when I've been living with my wife I never got time to play. Now she left me in August, I've dragged out the guitars and started playing again.

I learnt in High School (started learning guitar in 1978). I am essentially self taught. I have an old Strat copy, and a nice new steel string with a cutaway and an inbuilt pickup bought from Aldi (Aldi is worldwide isn't it so you guys will know what I'm talking about: for those who don't think low cost retailer with chain stores around the place).

You do need both types. Some songs are not good on accoustic (eg Doobies' "Listen to the Music") but some are obviously much better on accoustic (eg anything from Jim Croce or James Taylor).

I only play Rhythm - and ONLY Barre chords - I think I can play about 5 simplifieds (well, I can obviously play A and E) - just never bothered. And I'm not real keen on those half-diminisheds and Maj9ths etc....

When I first started back again about 2 months ago, I could NOT get through an entire song due to the wrist strain. Now I can play indefinitely and day before yesterday I played seven hours straight with a few short breaks (where I'd sit down put on some music and inevitably grab the guitar and play along again!)

This is great therapy. I hope the wife never comes back (loooks likely). It seems like I'm over a 14 year marriage breakdown in about 6 weeks.

Thank You Music. And thanks to UG for all the Tabs/Chords.

Hello

Just joined after extensively reading ultimate guitar forum and the posts made by all the learned members and experts. I picked guitar after nearly 20 years. Getting a grip on it. Need plenty of advise in choosing a better electric guitar. Have some budget constraints - don't we all. Looking forward to hearing and exchanging knowledge.

Cheers

Chari

Hello,

I'm a 19 years old guitar-lover metalhead guy. I've been playing guitar for 4-5 years. I've never taken a lesson, used youtube and moslty UltimateGuitar. I'm using a Washburn WM10(can't buy a new guitar for now). I usually prefer playing rhythm guitar parts. Unfortunately, never been in a band yet.

Help??

Hello! I'm a complete newbie, but I'm no stranger to this site. I just looked over FAQ's and the Forum categories but I don't really know where to ask this question so here it is: how do you upload a tab on here?

(it's probably easy and I just don't know it)

Hello to everyone. I recently discovered this website while browsing for some tabs on the internet. I've only been playing the guitar for 2-3 months now, so I'm still a complete newb at most stuff.

Hey! My name is Phil Karis and I've been playing guitar for quite a while now. I am currently putting together my debut album and was wondering whether it's apropriate to ask for feedback/constructive critisism on my songs through this forum? If so, where? Thanks!

Is anyone willing to do an interview as to why they play what ever instrument it is you do? What it means to you? How you got involved with it? Do you learn tabs or to read music? I am an anthropology major attempting to do research on this. Thank you all! Cheers
