Right so Im going for a month in Kenya next year and i need to raise 6000 bucks and the only way to do this is to wash up in a ****ty pub when all of my mates are out having a laugh.

The worst part...I have to quit my guitar lessons to do this.

Everyones saying 'your too good for lessons' but thats crap and you can always learn something as you guys know. Plus i NEED to interact with people, i cant just look at dusty tabs and sit and learn them.

Anybody else had to sacrifice their guitar or playing for anything??

I got caught with weed and was grounded from guitar for like a year once. It was the worst thing ever. I had to re-learn everything.
#3
I'm more concerned as to why you're 1) going to Kenya and 2) why you are raising 6000 dollars by yourself
#4
Nope, Mine was the other way around.

I sacraficed a cat to Satan, and got a guitar.

Bastard tricked me!

I wanted a pineapple!

That's possibly the dumbest punishment I've ever heard. I did got in less trouble/ did fewer drugs in high school BECAUSE I spent so many hours playing guitar. I'd still smoke more pot if I didn't have music as a hobby. They didn't think that one through, I'd say.

I wouldn't ever allow that, Id go take it back from my parents when they weren't at home and play it, if they caught me so be it id still play anyways, sure theyd probably kick my ass after that but it wouldnt stop me.

its worth it.

yeah man...music keeps me outta that stuff aswel.

and for that other guy......he never said it worked.

I wouldn't let anyone ground me from playing guitar ever,
and if I were in your position, I would talk to them and tell them that you taking away my stuff has nothing to do with smoking.

now he's gonna be moreeeeee bored and wanna do it even more.

lol...makes no sense to me.....i dont mean to be a jerk...its just my opinion.

True.

If I was in a position like that, Down Shifter, I'd stop talking about playing and play!

All the time you spend on UG is valuable guitar time, no matter who you are.

not sure if this counts, but i broke my fretting arm last year, and because of the cast i couldn't fit my hand around the frets or even reach the lower ones. so i couldn't play right for like 3 or 4 months

Next time, offer it to the person who caught you.

Or don't get high around your parents...?
At least wait until they're gone, like a normal person.


As for the main question, guitar beats everything.

I sacrificed playing for all of two weeks, back when I had fake nails for my prom. They were so long that I couldn't play till they came off! That was the longest two weeks of my life.....

You don't just buy new strings for a BC Rich.

For a guitar that metal, you have to dissect a black cat alive at the full moon and stretch its guts into strings.

Yeah, but...free guitar. I'm not gay or bi either, that doesn't mean I've never made out with dudes. Besides...FREE GUITAR.

I tried to sell one of my basses to scrounge up money to go see my now ex-fiancee. Man...if that's not love, I don't know what is.

God, what a bitch.
#34
Yep, had my guitar taken off me for a couple of months cause I had exams coming. Stupid standard grades don't count for a goddamn thing anyway. I just went to my friend's place and played there

I`m selling my guitar to pay for rent. my amp's already gone.. to pay for a new guitar and better but cheaper amp

When you said sacrifice, I thougt you actually meant giving up guitar completely for something. Not just giving up lessons. I'd love o have lessons, but I can enver afford them. It's not exactly much of a sacrifice.

TO answer the question, no. I've enver needed to give up guitar. Dancing is my main hobby, that would be a real sacrifice to give up as dace classes not something that I can do whenever I want.

I haven't ever given it up and won't even if I'm living on a street corner with nothing but one hole filled pair of underwear and a guitar. I know it is a liveable situation because I know most people on UG live like that. hehehe. But really when we had like, 0 money, my dad pawned his Martin D-15
