Guitar Nirvana

When you are in an environment that you love, feel comfortable in, and can play in and not think about anything else, you play better and enjoy it more.

I have been playing guitar for about 7 months now. I bought my guitar about 5 months ago though. It took me a while to work up to buying, but now that I have it, it's so relaxing and heeling.

It is such a nirvana that I literally wake up, go to school, get home, start playing, and I play all night! I really don't know how I get all my school work done. I get so trapped in my music that I don't even see or hear people coming into my room.

But one thing that does stop me from playing is my surroundings. I don't like my room at all, there's no color, I have no posters, and its just plain old UGLY! I need a place that makes me happy, that will relax me, and bring me into that paradise that I love.

So one day when I came home from school, I was so sick of playing in an unhappy place, I took my guitar (and amp) outside to play in a hammock, on my deck, which is one of my favorite places in my whole house. I was blasting that music! I think some little girls came over and started watching from some woods in my backyard. I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier! It makes me so much happier. I get into this illusion; there is no way to explain in. I'm not even going to try explaining. You have to experience it for yourself, and I'm positive almost all serious players who have the passion that I do have experienced it. But the point is, that when you are in an environment that you love, feel comfortable in, and can play in and not think about anything else, you play better and enjoy it more. Its that simple. I am so glad that I've found my paradise; it makes me forget everything. So, go find yours and...just play.

    haha.. i was also looking for Nirvana.. but i like this article aswell..i hate my room and my family gets really annoyed when i play coz we live in such a small house.. all summer i slept outside in our garden shed (which is 2x2) where i could rock as loud as i wanted to.. but then i went out one day and my parents had filled it with junk from the house.. now im back to playing softly in my room and its really depressing.. oh well..

    Yeah to not know that Nirvana was a state of being for buddhists where they dont reincarnate anymore is kinda sad, besides some band had the name nirvana before nirvana so kurt couldnt have invented it

    hey you *&%en rockers. Got 2 kids, married, been playen for 3 years. I would love to play outside if it weren't so damn cold uphere all the time. But getting into "illusions" it's get away enough for me just to play even with my kids there. My 1 year old son follows with his head banging. Thats my audiance. METALLICA!!!!!YEAH!!!!

    as if u wouldnt notice ppl coming into your room... jeez some ppl like TRY and be annoying and cryptic as they can possibly be..anyway come to think of it that was fairly straightforward except for the "I get into this illusion; there is no way to explain it" thingy...anyway

    Chili Pepper's posters, red walls and wood floor and loads of rugs... that's how I decorated my attic guitar/music room! how rock is that? I got a drum kit and a bunch of keyboards up there but the piano won't go up the stairs

    i play up on my roof sometimes at night. It's really relaxing because i lay back and watch the stars as i play.

    well my rooms small dull and boring so i usually play downstairs. Just a begginer tho... I personaly wudnt wana play outside, well not until i can play better..

    i usually unplug the telephone, close my bedroom door and crank up the amp (considering it's 80 watts that's quite alot ehhee) and it's sooooo goooood
    stratomatter87
    i do the same thing.no phone-calls equal no interuptions.playing with the band really cranks up your addrenaline to where you just play better. i wish i could play all day or just take my guitar to school.that would be cool.

    I just play in a room witn my bed annd dresser in it and with the lights off and i do fine. And i take my guitar to school for speeches in my public speaking cl*** or sometimes just for fun
