Hi all,
Name's Brian, I'm 25 and I am addicted to guitar.
Living in Northern Alberta, Canada.  Little town called High Level.  Flying Medivacs for a company up here.

Bought my first guitar, Samick D2N, in april.  Have a roommate whose played for a few years and showed me the basics.  Gotten alot of help from the guitar noise beginners songs.  Great site.
Always wanted to play the guitar and finally got the time to devote to it.  

Well, look forward to chatting with you guys.
Brian
I don't understand, I got the guitar, and the beer, the commercial said I'd be a rock star by now...

the reason we fall is so we can learn how to pick ourselves back up

Well about time I got up and did this...

H'llo all! I'm Alex (female, thanks, since there's much confusion on that topic) and I'm a 13-year-old songwriter. I don't deem myself a guitar player as of yet because, well, I haven't touched the thing in months (which I *swear* I'm going to change as soon as I get offline). But I write. Songs, poems, stories, fanfiction, everything.

I randomly use British slang, although I was born in New York and have never been anywhere in Europe. I'm the resident insanity between my friends, and usually am on a sugar high, so please excuse any random editing to take out something that mortified me five minutes later in a post.

I love music from 1990s and before, not to say I don't listen to current music (although I tend to watch VH1's music hours more that MTV's). Some of my favorite bands/singers are: Genisis, Letters to Cleo (never heard of 'em? Shame, they're amazing), Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Billy Joel, Pat Benetar, R.E.M., and... ah... *checks ever-growing list* Dashboard Confessional. I also have many songs I love by singers I've never heard many songs from (example- 'Numb' by Linkin Park, 'Hold On' by Good Charlotte, 'Perfect' by Simple Plan, ar... 'Even Angels Fall' by Jessica Riddle... these tend to be more current. What can I say, I love Insomniac Music Theater.)

If you can't tell yet, music and writing are my life, along with books.

I think I've rambled on enough. See you around the boards.

Alex

ADDED IN AN EDIT: I've actually been here a little while, but I kind of fell away for a bit time. I've rediscovered the place now, happily.

Welcome back. Welcome back. To the place you always laughed about.


ack! Attack of the Welcome Back Kotter theme song. I gotta get out more.


Seriously, glad you're back Alex.  ;D

Hello all and congratulations on a wonderful website.  I just picked up an acoustic guitar in November and am already learning a lot from all of you.  It's good to see all of you who have been playing for awhile share your knowledge.  I listen to just about everything but I like rock, blues and folk.

Hi everybody, ;D

I absolutely love this web site as I too am a newbie at playing the guitar and found more helfull informative information here than all other places combined so far.

I live in a small town North of Edmonton Alberta, Canada
I have had my guitar for about 7 years and only now picked it up figuring it was time to learn to play.

It's an acoutic guitar make is Seagul not sure if it is a good guitar or not but sounds fine to me.

Looking forward to learning and talking with you all.

That's the important part right there. If it sounds good and you enjoy it, then it is good.  ;D Welcome to our humble asylum.... ;D

Hi,  Kelsey.  Hello, Victor.  Hey, Twisted Fingers, it's cool you keep switching avatars.  Camp is really nice.  

Meine name ist Karl, oder Carlos en espagnol, ou Charles en francais et English.

I speak some other languges than English, I play guitar, bass, learning keyboards, and drums.  I am also trying to figure out how best to record a demo this coming year.  

Welcome all ye new folks!  Have fun and learn lots!
It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!

Hi All,
I've hung around GuitarNoise off and on for quite a while. I think the theory articles, song writing club and song lessons are the best on the 'net.

I've been playing guitar for the last couple of years. It's my first instrument and I had no background musical knowledge, so I've had a lot to learn. Thanks to this and other good sites, I've been able to learn a lot on my own.

I tend to be a little fickle, so I bounce around between trying to play electric blues licks, strum simple songs and play fingerstyle, so I'm not very good at any style!

This year I hope to have more "stick-to-it-iveness" and try to master songs before I move on to something else!

Happy New Year to all.
