Boobies? Why would you play guitar for boobies? I go to a ****ing party for boobies.

IDK what kind of guitar YOU'RE playing, but if you get boobies, please, I'll buy a signed copy.

To get chicks!!!!! Cause thats the way to go right?

Nah, I started because originally I wanted to learn write songs but after 3 weeks of struggles, I finally realized that it would be impossible without an instrument, so I picked guitar since a Piano would be too expensive and too much of a hassle to purchase. I love my guitar though

My dad bought the AC/DC Live Cd and the first song was thunderstruck and i was just thunderstrucket! It was sow cool! So after that i picked up the guitar.
#12
in all honesty i wanted to do something different

i mean i wanted a guitar as a kid...but i come from an academic/athletic oriented family...my brother is a mad soccer player...and after awhile i didnt want to be held to the same standard in extra curriculars

so i picked up the guitar i had been given years earlier and had ignored for in pursuit of glory on the soccer pitch and hockey rinks...and just started playing...

turns out everyone and their grandma plays guitar...so much for being different
#13
i was bored one day and my dads old sg was sitting around so i got my friend to show me smoke on the water haha and i just caught on
#14

Gene Simmons once said that all young teenage boys start playing the guitar to pick up chicks..... and he was right, but to be honest, ive just always had a bit of a natural ability with music, having learned several instruments before guitar. but in all simplicity, i started my rocking with a cheapo bass, and just wanted two more strings....

I remember the first time I was inspired to play guitar seriously. I had played bass for about a year with my friends because they said I could play with them if I played bass, so that was just to do it. I was driving with my mom one day and we were listening to the radio. Well, a song came on that litterally moved me and that song was Dream On by Aerosmith. After that I got a guitar to go with my bass and I never looked back. But to this day, that is still my favorite all time song just because of it's impact on me.
#17
Meh I guess I just felt like it and was looking for something fun/new to do. I really like music so I figured why not.

Plus my parents love music and they helped me into it alot, glad they did, guitar is one of the best things i've ever done.

Dimebag inspired me to learn how to play guitar and I felt that being able to inspire others with my music would be cool too.

Well, my buddy got caught with some weed at school and his mom said the only way she would let him out of the house was if he was in a band. So naturally we decided to get a band together with my other friend who played a bit of guitar. I was supposed to play my harmonica, but I couldn't find it so when I got to his house he said I could use one of his guitars.

So our band was me on lead guitar(after playing for like 5 minutes), my other friend on rhythm, and the last guy playing the recorder and singing.

The band only lasted for like a week, but I've been playing guitar ever since.

I had always wanted to play, but for some reason, when I was younger, I was embarassed to admit it. Kinda wierd, looking back and thinking "why did that bother me?" but I'm over it now, I am completlely obsessed with guitar. In fact, it's 1:00 in the morning right now and I should be finishing my homework instead of surfing UG!

I remember when I first saw Pete Townshend do his "Windmill" technique and then he started pouding on the guitar. I was amazed.

Then then Jimmy Page came along.

This is what got me going.

It looked fun.

Actually, I just remebered my first time walking in to a guitar center. I was going to gte my first guitar but I didn't really start playing till 2 years later. Well, anyway when I walked in a I saw this guy who was like 17-18 and he was just shreddin the guitar, playing so friggin fast. From what I remember he just looked at me and had that "Yeah I'm good" smile on his face and I was just like, "Someday I'll be sittin there and some kid will look and me and I'll do the same".

When I was like 8 my brother had an old acoustic guitar lying around and I always got it out of its gig bag and strum it like a madman with all the strings open. A couple of years later I asked my mom if I could get some lessons.... END OF STORY

I played it because i wanted to be able to play the music i enjoy and piano just couldnt do that. Also because i get a great feeling inside when i learn to play a song and do it right, just makes me happy.

I started because we were required to play an instrument for music class in 2004. I had the choice of guitar (then if we got 'good enough' the teacher would allow us to go onto electric guitar), bass, drums and keyboard.

I chose the guitar, and although at first it was for school, I loved it straight away and I haven't stopped playing.

I played drums for around 8 years and got bored playing to an MP3 and not being able to mkae songs...the keyboard does not sound anything like a guitar either.........

so I talked to my cousin who has been playing guitar for about 7 years now and he got me hooked on guitar.
