Hey guys.

I've been playing guitar for about 2 years, and I'm alright, I guess
I've never really had anyone to jam with as I live kinda on the outskirts of my town.
I'm pretty close with my brother, and we're interested in the same music. I know he'd love guitar or bass, and I have spare ones lying around, and I'd love if he took it up, we could jam!

I always mention it to him but he says "I'm never good at instruments."

Anyone give me any advice on how I could attract him to the instrument?

cheers Pit!

give him a lesson. Teach him power chords.

Don't force anyone into something like guitar. If they don't want to play, they're not going to. Guitar is something you have to have an interest in to start it IMO. He'll come around asking you if he has any interest at all. If you expose him to it often, the interest might grow.

show him something real easy like some beginner-level stuff from his favorite band and tell him he'd be able to learn this. that anyone can learn to play the guitar/bass. encourage him

Show him the Pit.


Oh wait, you want him to take up guitar? Nevermind.

Haha, thanks guys! Yeah, I tried teaching him some power chords but he didn't seem interested, but he was pretty good! I guess he always has a busy schedule but he might try some time And I already showed him the pit, that's the only part of guitar he likes :P

Bad move. Now you have to help him get rid of the Pit addiction if you want him to take up a musical instrument or ever succeed in life

NOOOOOOONNONONONOOOO Way to many people play Guitar! It's so hard nowadays to find bassists and drummers, make him learn bass!

Wait until he's out. Cover the walls, ceiling and floor in pictures of guitars and printed out tabs.

Wait behind the door, and when he comes in, follow him around playing the exorcist theme on guitar.

Also, write "learn guitar" on the walls over and over in your blood.


OT: Just ask if he'd be interested in learning. If not, he's not going to. Simples.
