That started my day off perfectly...

seriously though, is an answer to this question really going to make you play guitar more? Do what you wanna do.

Uh i have an xbox360 too. But the new wears off in a few weeks, and after owning one for 2 years, i still find plenty of time playing guitar (about 5 hours a day). But whilst were on the subject. Do you have xbox live? Gamertag?
#7
yeah in the end you'll end up making a choice, guitar or xbox360. I'm betting you'll get sucked in.

being sucked into video games is... pointless.

getting into video games when you're high/drunk is fun.

That's funny. I recently got the X-Box 360 for Christmas, but I don't play it, my brother is obsessed with it, but I can't be bothered for the life of me with it. You just got to push it aside and focus on guitar, buy some new gear, that'll surely get you in the mood to play.

It depends on how obsessed you are with the guitar. I love my games, but I'm in way too deep to let my guitar fall by the wayside. If you're like me, the games obsession will pass in a few weeks and you'll be back to normal.

If you can't force yourself to play your guitar, you obviously aren't that interested.

Don't jizz up your screen.

Dude you have way too much gear to be at one of those crossroads of Guitar or Video games.

So in my opinion you deserve either the xbox, or half of your gear. I know some people wont agree with me
#15
YES you made the biggest misstake ever.
Why didnt you buy some new gear etc. instead ?

Just that damn thing and get something else (guitar related ofcourse)

poor frenchy

At threadstarter: Looking at your gear and you just buying an Xbox 360 I'm assuming you have alot of money. In which case I don't care if you give up guitar or not.

Im practicing on it.
My mid. fingers callos (or something) went of and now it hurts like helll to play.
But im trying to be a man and play with the extreme pain.
I removed my crazy train solo because of complete suckage.

oh and as for the people who dont understand why i hav e the money to afford this gear, its called a JOB. maybe you all should think about getting one, instead of just having guitar stuff, you gotta live a little.

Here's the thing. If you're more interested in sitting in front of a T.V. watching little people move around for hours, than playing your guitar. Then you obviously shouldnt be playing guitar.

But no, I'm kidding. It really doesnt matter. Just try and focus more on playing the guitar. If you're more interested in the video games maybe you just need to take a break from playing guitar for a while, that way you get interested in it again.

I assumed you werent old enough for a job, since you were asking for advice on your life in the pit

dude the same thing happened to me but i fought the monster and got back on the guitar track i havent played my xbox 360 in 2 1/2 months in fact if i could go back in time i would buy a stantard strat instead of that xbox but it will all be worth in when gta 4 comes out or whatever the hell number it is
