You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

^same as me, word for word even the ages (though I might have been 12)
started at 11 but didn't really get into it till about 6 months after, that was nearly 3 years ago
I got my first guitar for xmas when I was ten. The only thing I could play my guitar with was the tuner and my sis's piano books. I had to figure everything out.

It's worse pissing when you come in from the really cold weather and your penis has shrunken to the size of a coffee stir straw and the piss feels like the blast from a super soaker.

red stripe.. HOORAY BEER!!!
I think about life, and then I think about death, and neither one particularly appeals to me..
started playing around the age 7, i remember i hated the guitar at that age
I started when I was 10, now I'm 18! I only had lessons for the first 3 years, and took a few years out when I couldn't afford a rig. Still can't afford a decent rig!!
Started technically when i was nine but really started up again when I was 13, now I'm 17.
