A drunk guy on the the bus asked me if i remembered the 60's. I told him i was 17 then he told me that everyone remembers the 60's.

I thought about it, and frankly, I couldn't fault his logic.

It made me enjoy music a lot more and now it's an integral part of my being. I'm also very reserved now and only want either guitar or computer and if I have both then I'm in happyville.

it made me realize how ****ty some bands were
Sounds close minded, doesnt mean I dont listen to those bands but I do get dissapointed at 3 power chord crap
#9
its made me connect more to my guitarist friends, made me realize video games are a waste of time unless its for a brief amount of time, made me realize wat i want to do in life.
#10
Yeah, I seem to have lost all my friends... and sometimes girls take keen interest in me. That's about all guitar will ever do for me.

Yeah, I have more things to do with my time now and it made me more inclined to my creative side (songwriting/poetry/singing/keyboards)...

And as of the last few weeks it's made me feel less shy because I've been playing publicly and I've learned not to keep my voice at Volume -2. I'm a bit more confident in that respect, I can really belt out a song now without feeling like a dumbass. Even before the last few weeks I couldn't sing in front of friends really, or I felt like my guitaring was inadequate. Playing publicly has really made a difference for me.

i've become a better guitar player.

and all other guitar related stuff. It made me realize how many guitarists there are and many of them are fools. Almighty fools.

like this guy: "its made me connect more to my guitarist friends, made me realize video games are a waste of time unless its for a brief amount of time, made me realize wat i want to do in life."

There is no such things as a waste of time.

Guitar has given me a future in it, and some kind of hope that i wont grow up just to be a worthless failure and an alcoholic and/or drug addict, i will be an alcoholic and/or drug addict who can play guitar.

Learning guitar has gotten me more into music and recording songs.

Before learning guitar I just played drums by myself not making any songs.

edit:
its also given me a better musical ear so that I can now pick out one instrument of a whole band and listen to that part to learn it.

I learned how to really listen to music, and dissect it...and playing guitar gave me a way to escape from life and forget my problems, at least while I'm playing.

well, going to a friend's house to jam made me realize how much i sucked at guitar and subsequently made me realize i'm decent at vocals.

that reeeeeaaaaally impacted my life.

Well, I don't like Metallica, AC/DC, GN'R (as much) and their ilk anymore.

Like you, I can appreciate music - well - differently and I'd say it's added to my confidence/self-esteem. An outlet of expression such as guitar has been the best savior I could ever ask for through the last 5 or 6 years. I truly love playing guitar because I don't have to say a thing if I don't want to. "Can i get an AMEN?!?"

I enjoy music more. I see how it's formed, and analyze it rather than just listening to it.
It also showed me how hard it's to come up with a good thing and play music.
It trained my ear and now I can hear a bassline for example, something that I did only in the subconscious in the past.

And about my life, it gave me something to work for, that I love, and that I'm good at it and people actually find cool.
It raised my self confidence, and basically, improved my life in any possible way.

realised how much money one could waste

I sort of lost it...
Listening to techno now; no guitar.
I still hang around the Pit though, interesting topics

Otherwise, I did learn a lot about music, and how many people play the guitar.
Nothing is permanent!.
#36
Have to say I'm with most other people in here, it's changed the way I listen to music
I used to listen to screaming, but now I find that it hurts my ears
now bands like metallica and pantera, I like to sit and break down the song into parts
and mostly I respect guitarists that play songs that I can't

Playing guitar introduced me to the world of Classic Rock. I didn't really enjoy or 'understand' classic rock until I started playing guitar. I've made some new friends through jamming...but unfortunately guitar introduced me to The Pit...

I became less reserved (though considering I used to be so shy I could barely socialise...), and It has certainly affected where I am right now - studying music in university.
