So if in some magical weird way someone took away ALL of your guitar skill,would you start learning again or would you give up?

I was thinking about this myself earlier and I said I couldn't figure out an awnser.
Thoughts?

I would learn it again. Playing guitar has become a key point in my life, and if I suddenly lost what little skill I have I'd work my ass off to get it back.

I wouldnt. I'd learn bass instead. Actually, I never wanted to play guitar. I always wanted to play bass.

I'd definitely want my skill back, but I'm not entirely sure if I'd want to bust my ass for another three years just to get all the way back up to where I currently am, when I could have six years experience instead. I don't even want to imagine how I would feel if I had to start learning guitar all over again. This thread makes me angry.

I've only being playing a few months so I would definitely start over again.
#10
I just noticed I clicked "Yes i would,to much work to start over" I meant to click the other option. I thought it said "Yes I would work to get it back".

what skill?
I thought I heard the door open, oh no,
I thought I heard the door open but
I only heard it close.
#12
I would definitely work back for it. Music is literally my life, and guitar is the only instrument I'm good at. I don't care how much it sucks, i would go back in a minute.

Tool, anyone?
Alter Bridge, maybe?
A bit of John Mayer?
Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.

Well considering I'm not very good, it isn't anything I couldn't relearn in a few months.

Seriously, the only skills that he'd be able to take away is speed, legato, and other fret hand abilities. You'd still remember how to do it, you'd just have to do it again.

Nah, if my skill was taken away I'd probably take up drums.

That wasn't a joke pointed at drummers, I seriously wouldn't mind being a drummer.

But since I still have my skill and it took me a long time to pick it up, I'm sticking with guitar.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.

Knowing myself, I'd probably go for the violin, then someday try to revive my skill at guitar later on.

well.... this seems to be the situation where u have a stroke..... or somebody cuts off ur left hand...... so given the circumstances..... it would be hard to regain skills with a nub or half ur brain functioning

id say **** it

similar question: if u screwed a bunch of hookers and got AIDS and somehow lost it..... would u go back to screwing hookers?

Thats no where near a similar question in my opinion. Learning guitar doesn't come near having a punishment like aids. The worst that can happen is that you can start to play awfully and start to think you sound good.

Not sure, I've been playing a bit of guitar lately and going from bass to guitar I find guitar is a fiddly and it's pretty frustrating not being able to play guitar as well as I play bass. So I can imagine how frustrating it would be starting bass from scratch knowing what I used to be able to do but, until I'm in that situation I can't really know what I would do.
