I am going to make a thread about my Journey into guitar, my influences, and what actually got a guitar in my hands.

When I was a kid my dad always listened to awesome bands. I grew up with rock, and simply started to love it. I really think how you live your life SOMETIMES can be from the music you listen to. Even though I am quiet different from the STEREOTYPICAL rocker.

Influences Right now
AC/DC
Tenacious D
Jane's Addictions
Heart (Specifically: Crazy on You, and Barracuda)
The Who (Specifically Pinball Wizard)
Nirvana
Rush
Primus
And a few I have yet to name

What really got the guitar into my hands were Guitar Hero, and Tenacious D. Please do not mistake me for some guy who just started to play Guitar Hero though and go, "I wanna play guitar." I just happened to start getting into music a lot more, and found out some of my friends played guitar. Soon I picked up the guitar, and am managing a band right now, seeing how I am not good enough YET to actually have any parts, although I am righting a few catchy things right now, and am getting better.

Guitar Club
The real thing that got me LEARNING was how a few kids started an after school program, Guitar Club. It took place 3:00pm - 4:00pm every Wednesday, immediately after school. It started out small, then grew, and then a few people dropped out of it. I came in a little late in the year, but went to quiet a few, in the end it was about 6 dedicated people. All we needed was a teacher to supervise us.

Now I am in a band, and rocking as hard as ever. I eagerly encourage people to start a guitar club at the beginning of next school year, you will be astounded by how many people would like to and know how to play guitar. All it takes is you and about 5 kids to find a teacher. I highly encourage this, after finding guitar my life has gotten a lot better, and I find it gave me the confidence to talk to women easier.

If you don't care, don't post, read the rest before you start replying with useless words. There is a message in the end.

Have you ever done this before? It's freakin' sweet! Earlier today, I was bored as hell just laying on my bed. I had an erection, so I started to use my penis as a gear stick and I was pretending I was driving. Has anyone else here ever tired this?

*Yawn*. Thanks for the insight into your boring yet very beautiful life. I was truly inspired, truly. Guitar Club = bunch if kids in a guitar club. Does that make sense, yes it does. I was to lazy to think of an insult so I stated the obvious in a non insulting kind of way. Now tell your friends about me or I'll shi* on your head.
Be cool.

It's a long story, though, so I'll just say this: laxatives+metal do not mix.
