Hi,

See if you can add some more to this list:

Great Guitar Moments

 The first time you walk out of a music shop with a guitar (um, better make that every time you walk out of a music shop with a guitar)

 The first time you hit the strings and produce a sweet note (ah, better make that every time you hit a sweet note, as well..)

 First time you pull off a smooth chord change ( ah… you know the next bit…)

 When you realise that even thinking about playing puts a little smile on your face.

 The day someone stops, listens, and says “hey, you're getting pretty good on that..”

 The first time somebody claps and means it.

 When you sit in your favourite spot with the guitar, start daydreaming about something, and a half a minute or so later realise that your hands haven't bothered to wait for your brain to catch up but have just started noodling away on their own.

 When you first discover Guitarnoise

 When you put together your first original string of notes, chord progression or song.

 When you get to the Pearly Gates and St Peter looks up from fiddling with the settings on his amp and says “Hi, come on in, I'll let Stevie Ray and Jimi know you've arrived….”

 When you look at your bank account and see that there's just enough for another guitar. And by a lucky coincidence that's today – so I'm outta here. :D

The first time you play a gig, and it actually goes over well! I don't think there's any greater feeling then that.

Ah min's more modest.
The first time you record something that kind of sounds like music.

The first time jamming with my kid.

The first time jamming with friends.

And if you like me and going in the other direction...Bon Scott is the Ferryman and I can't afford to get across the River Styx because right before I died I emptied my account to buy a true Gibson LP!

?When you get your bank statement and you realize you are overdrawn due to GAS and your rent is due!

First time you heard a another guitar player and had "one of those moments". You know, when you want to explode out of your skin becuase of how absoelutely perfect their music is.

The meaning of life? I've never heard a simpler question! Music.

The first time someone asks you to play and they have actually heard you before

When you play three songs in a row that people recognize

When you play and the dog does not leave the room.

Hitting the first three notes to a song, and having the entire club shout, jump to their feet and start dancing.

Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

- When the Big Brown Truck arrives with your latest gear purchases

- First time your SO walks through the room and casually states "I know that song"

- When your kids see you having so much fun with guitar they want their own

- When you realize you have more gear than talent (oh wait, not what you meant)

When you can play your favorite solo (like Crazy Train) note for note.

And no, I can't play this solo. :D

But if I could, that would be a great guitar moment for me.

Something very simple. When you can change your guitar strings without busting a string, or taking more than an hour to complete the task.

When you bust a G string while fingering a minor and don't get arrested for it. :P

When you realize you're making the guitar sound good, instead of the other way 'round.

The first time someone says they wish they could play like you ... and you suspect they might actually mean it.
