in your hands?

i started playing guitar about 3years ago, as a laugh. i was offered a behringer vtone pack for £35, so i thought "why not?"

since then i have really got into it, practice regually, bnassicly made it a part of me. but it never felt 100% right.

until last night. i stopped by a house, to try out a bass....and when i held it, it just seems right. it felt beautiful, and natural. guitar is great, but bass is for me.

what felt right to you in life?

(and no penis jokes)

this thread is just begging for a rude comment

edit: sorry didnt see the no penis jokes bit at the bottom

No willies?

I started on bass then went on to guitar. I've done the complete opposite. Guitar seems more natural for me, but then again I can play bass without looking at the fretboard at all, whereas for guitar I still do at times.

I started on bass, and now am fairly competent at guitar too.

And what feels comfortable and natural in my hands?

Boobies.

You don't feel awkward because it's a guitar, it's because it's a Behringer v-tone, the worst instrument ever.

I know I'm going to get flamed for this, but BC riches. The neck size and action are just perfect. I've tried other guitars, but they just don't feel right.

Oh, the neck on my Ibanez S320 is also orgasmic. Feels like it's not even there.

It was all planned.

See, about 6 years ago, just before I started playing, a travelling gypsy told me I'd one day meet the frech man of my dreams, and that he would play bass, and move onto guitar.

In order that I'd have something in common with this man when I finall found him, I decided to take the same path of musical righteousness.

Wow, that's pretty cheap. Mine's a silver series warlock, I think it was £250.

We do have a habit of derailing Slann's threads...

Just to add that I played cello for a good while before I picked up the bass, which is probably why I took to it so well (and can still play it well today).
#24
Sorry for the derail.

Anyway, you know what else feels natural and good?

Video game controllers.

Food.

For being a serial spammer? Wow, the Pit sinks low sometimes

Anyone else here start on a classical instrument before moving on to guitar/bass? Especially if it's a stringed instrument, it helps left hand technique enormously.

I didn't start on a classical instrument, but I lived in Wales for a bit, and a buddy of mine had a cello.

I learned to play a little bit mainly by applying my knowledge of bass, and by dicking around with it.

I gotta start working on my figure, I've got my blackbelt grading in jujitsu coming up.

Unfortunately, I started by drinking about 36cans of Guiness last weekend to celebrate Paddys Day.

We've discussed this, and we came to the conclusion, that no, no there isn't.

I think I am actually more of a drummer instead of a guitarist. I don't know why. I really like the guitar, but I find playing the drums slightly more stisfying than playing guitar.
I just need about $3.50

YES!!! My Mockingbird (which cost me about £200) feels perfect too me. I thought it might be that I got lucky, and somehow got a flukey well-made model, seeing all the hate they get around here, but you obviously have the same feeling. Pretty much all other guitars have things about them that bug me (too high frets, not smooth enough neck, wrong neck shape). Mine feels perfect.
