Hey,

Probably loads of these threads already out there, but all the same I am interested in why you all started. So not the how, with what guitar and methodology but just the why.

I wanted to learn guitar after I heard Stevie Ray Vaughan the for the first time because of my step-dad. Which was at the age of 13/14 but started ten years later, yeah I know bad. This was due money issues and time issues. I did play the saxophone in that time and I am going to start that one too.

I liked smoking dope.

I had no self esteem, so I thought that if I learned how to play Wonderwall on an acoustic I'd finally get some 12 year old pussy.


I was 12 too when I started...

I wasn't allowed to get a drum kit

I started because the first time I played guitar I completely fell in love and I kept wanting to pick up the guitar even though I had blisters from playing.

BRING IT.

OT: I don't even remember why I asked for a guitar, probably because I couldn't think of anything else I wanted for Christmas. Best decision I ever made though

because drums were too expensive for starting-price and I got a guitar for free. It was hearing RHCP the first time that made me actually want to play though, and it was hearing Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes and Muse that made me want to be a musician.

So I could join Ultimate Guitar and learn how to use the Search Bar.


I actually laughed quite a bit at that.

Ha, same. Also to show this one guy up at my middle school. I was 13 I think, so that was like 6 or 7 years ago now.

My dad played when I was growing up, but I never did. Then one day, (at 38) I'm playing guitar hero, and said "This sucks" and bought a real guitar. Now all that guitar hero stuff just sits around, and I have three guitars...

See, I don't get this with guitarists disliking/bashin on guitar hero. It's a game.
It's like saying "So you're a pro at CoD? Come back when you can kill real people, faggit!!"

I was asking for Guitar Hero 3 for Christmas many years back, and My grandmother got me a guitar instead. At first I was bummed, now I'm going to fail classes because music consumes every waking moment of my life.
#28
I played Guitar Hero and thought, "This is pretty awesome, so real guitar must be even more awesome", and what do you know!

Because I love the sound of a bass (play bass by the way), my friend was a guitarist and I wanted to perform on stage, with my buddy's makin some sweet ass metal.. WOOOOOOOO
#31
I hated sports, my father was a blues player, and his friend was a jazz player, so growing up around them inspired me to pick up guitar. I was about 14 or 15.
#33
My Dad gave me a guitar when I was around 10. I did it at first just to gain his approval. Then eventually I was hooked.

Same here! Then my grandfather got me into classical guitar, wish I could still play like that.

Sorry, but because you listen to Tool doesn't mean you're intelligent.

Well there was a guitar laying around my house and one of those step by step beginner guitar books so I just started going through it, once I finished it I just kept going, I think alot of it having to do with my parents not letting me play computer games and not watch too much TV.

I was told that it would get me laid.
