what do you guys like about being able to play guitar?
i like that i can take my acoustic to any street corner, or bar, or stage and become an "artist". music is all i have and all that is left for free, to me.

I play for no one but me, so I can't say the same. Playing just makes me feel good all over.

Actually I second this. Usually it's just Budweiser or PBR, but getting a couple of them for free? Shit yeah.

It allows me to do music, which is what keeps me going and it allows me to do it in all the different ways i want. It's a legitimising thing to do, to be able to sing something and play the guitar and know it's what you believe in and what you're doing is basically an articulation of something you can't express otherwise.

the best part about playing the guitar is hanging with drummers.

The mental and musical exercise. I'm starting to love how you must figure out how you're going to interpret a piece and make it your own.

It's basically the only proper way for me to vent my feelings and how I am, whether I'm a dick or a good person it will somehow come out in my music, it's my own therapy and makes me feel better and I can cope with myself and my surrounding. Other people's music can't do that for me as I can never give myself credit for that music and I don't want to associate myself with other people's music as a reflection of myself, it can inspire me or be close to my feelings, but that's just a projection onto the music. My own music is a mirror into myself.

Actually I'm getting a bit bored of guitar and don't have enough motivation to get better. I'm interested in taking up piano/synth or violin.

Being able to figure stuff out by ear is awesome. Just being able to hear what they're doing and know how to do it without touching your guitar is awesome.

Yeah, this definitely, I think playing any instrument improvises your enjoyment of music

Surely those kind of tekkers would make it even easier? Or do you mean they would be turned off if I was a 30 something Latina? I think I missed something.


I do love Rodrigo y Gaberiela btw.

Ah right, gotcha. I tend to avoid actually playing anything, for the illusion of talent. And I don't think I've ever really met a girl cultured enough to listen to that.

I suppose you're right.

But I am 15, no need to panic yet. I imagine 15 year old girls aren't the target audience of Rodrigo y Gabriela.

The best part for me is when I finally make something that sounds good or when I finally nail a technique that I've been practicing.
