I was interested in finding out how many UGers are actually trying to get somewhere in music with their guitar/bass playing.

Fun, of course... But a career would obviously be nice. To pick up a guitar with the aim just to make money is silly, if your heart's not in it then why bother?

Well for me it's kind of both. I have tons of fun playing the guitar and I also have some goals set for myself career wise.

Fun, i really don't want to solely make a living from being in a band. Being in a band for fun would be good though

I do it for the fun.

It's such an adrenaline rush to play along to your favorite songs.

But sometimes I like to grab my acoustic and try to write a thing or two. I usually write riffs and chord progressions, but I never seem to finish them because I'm usually like "Ok, I have this cool chord progression and a nice little riff to go along with it........now what?" and it's sort of a downer.

But overall, it's just for the pure enjoyment

while doing it soley for the money is pretty pointless ... using it to get paid really isn't, it enables me to spend all day playing guitar if i feel the need, no having to work a ****ty job i can't stand ... works for me.

I bought my guitar because the deal was too good to pass up on and I play it every day because if I don't, I'll have wasted my money.

Not really, chiks don't seem to like technical death metal anyways

I don't play guitar for the money, but I make money on giving lessons, so...

i play to free the soul by singing with a voice that would otherwise remain silent and dormant within. and getting pussy
#34
Definitely not money. I'll end up making more than I ever could with music even if I got very lucky.
#38
I would love to go for a career, but honestly I don't know what I want. Part of me wants to be a working average joe, another to be a musician, another to pursue getting a golf scholarship, and then another for law enforcement/military. I don't know.

I picked up the bass because I was the singer in a band
I can't sing to save my life so I had to find another job...
I was kind of forced into playing just to stay in the band I was in (we never had a bassist)

But yeah, I love it now. A career in music would be fun, so it's hard to vote.
