I see what your saying due to the crap the record companies are putting out these days... but if you can find a record company that will give your creative freedom over your music; id say it would matter

I've been pondering this myself lately and my conclusion is that being a great guitar player alone gets you nowhere, but having a great band with great songs may get you somewhere.
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

Yer, there's all these moronic bands that perform at Uni and bars and boy do they suck. Just makes me more cocky but it doesn't affect my playing or anything. I just hate for a bit and nod because i know i'm better! :P

You know, I'm beginning to think you're that guy who constantly makes multis and posts threads about middle easterners and then gets banned. Go on, admit it.. You're him, aren't you? I won't tell.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

True. That doesn't mean anything though. Ejaculation can be achieved by other means other than fapping.

Well, once your already a great guitarist, The only way your really gonna get somewhere is by knowing someone.
theres too many bands for record people to just go out looking for people like they used too.

let me tell you what my plan for my life is: get a well-paying job in which i can raise a family and live comfortably with my education. keep my band going through after I graduate. play in local bars/restaurants with my band. live life and love life and love music. if something else happens with regards to my band then so be it. if i don't make it any farther than where ive been then ill have no regrets either.

guitarplaying is yet to live up to the "hang it round ur neck and get laid part"

so yeah... if ur great i dunno... it seems that if you just put yourself/the band out there enough you can get signed to some reasonable company... E.G sony BMG

if you're better then most people at something, chances are you can be able to make money by doing it. but first you have to get better than most people, and that takes alot more than speed or technique

well i think its weird that people who play guitar hero get the girls and the people who play real guitar get nothing. what is wrong with the world.
#23
^^people who play guitar hero get girls? Riiiiiight.

I think being a great songwriter will get your further than being a great guitar player. but it depends on how you define "great" (you can't). great as in chops like Yngwie? no one will really care because there is such a narrow audience for that type of thing? but great as in innovate with a unique and catchy sound, then yes i think it would get you noticed.

and as far as girls go if you can play well its not that hard to impress them provided they aren't guitar players themselves.

I don't know...there's a bunch of great guitar players out there...my guitar instructor is awesome....not sure why he isn't famous lol
