Playing guitar through a really big amp when you're angry and frustrated is like evening the score with "the world" by punching it/them in the face, only nobody gets hurt and you won't have to go to jail. It's a good release.

[center]You all probably don't care, but here:<br><br><br>I started playing guitar about a year and 1 month ago. I learnt on an acoustic. I started playing it a fair amount as a hobby for about a month. Now i play it any chance i get. I started off playing for around 30min's a day, now I play around 7 hours a day. I wake up at 6:30, stumble out of bed, pick up my guitar. Get to school at 8am, allways 10 mins late  :-*. I get home at 1:30 pm, and usualy play untill about 12:00 midnight. Go to bed, repeat.[/center]

1.spiral-tap is not funny.<br>2.making any judgement on someone elses music WITHOUT HEARING IT is obscene :-/<br>3.i never wanted to be an asshole. a smart ass :P but not an asshole.<br>4.im a drummer fer christ-sake    what the hell am i doin on a guitar thread ;D<br>I realized what I wrote. How the fuck I could say that is beyond me tho. Any player of MUSIC deserves encouragement. I dont care if you just started or ya been doin it forever. Learn as much as you can. Do as much listening to bass parts instead of guitar lines. Practice with a purpose.<br> And who knows? <br>you might be looking for a gig like the rest of us musicians ;D ;D ;D<br>Lt.Citizen(ret.)asshole-and hung over(no excuse i no i no)

thank you bat. <br><br>I play bass mostly because that is what I am best at but if I am recording in the studio I play the guitar and whatever else instruments or get others to do the ones I can't but I am bass centered. Playing bass isn't what everyone thinks it is.(phrazed wrong)

I'm a rightie, but I know at least one leftie who's made a name for himself as well.  A little man known as Jimi Hendrix.  He just reversed the strings on a regular right-hand guitar, and companies make left handed guitars.  So, the only thing stopping a left handed guitarist is their thoughts that they can't.

I wish I had learnt to play on an acoustic guitar, I waited to buy some decent electric and a pedal and i'd been given an old amp.<br><br>There was a lot in the way of distractions there and if you have an acoustic you have enough resonance to keep you interested but no distractions.<br><br>Plus if you don't take to it you haven't wasted a load of money on an electric.<br><br>

[quote author=Underwoods_Son link=board=quotes;num=1032783644;start=30#43 date=07/09/04 at 06:07:18]Robert Fripp is actually left handed, but he plays right handed[/quote]<br><br>That actually makes a lot of sense to me. After all, your dominant hand should be the one doing all the hard work, not the one just going up-and-down. (Of course, for some people, the hand doing all the work is the one going up-and-down, but that's a completely different topic. ;D)<br>
