The first time your fingers blister from practicing too much and you don't really care or notice because you are having so much fun.

The moment you play the first song you are working on all the way through without screwing up a chord change (not there yet, but close).

The first time a musician you respect compliments your choice in guitars (espeically considering when you bought it you didn't know crap about them).

"Practice until you get a guitar welt on your chest...if it makes you
feel good, don't stop until you see the blood from your fingers.
Then you'll know you're on to something!"
- Ted Nugent

When you first played a barre chord without having any of the strings muted. Boy that was a victory!

The first time, you play a short slide solo perfectly first thing in the morning. Now if I could only do it at speed. :roll:

True! :D

I think I could also add:

When I realised that I could look at the letter F again without wincing... :wink:

Or uttering words that start with it :P

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- "WOW--What a Ride!"

lol Twisted

When you can think of the phrase you want to play in your head, and then play it. I love that feeling.

Hearing a note and knowing where it is.

Taso, that's probably the best answer yet.

It's only just beginning to happen for me, in very small ways, but when it does it's just a priceless feeling. :D

When you're fiddling with the 7,000 knobs on your amp, guitar and pedals when suddenly for no apparent reason you find the most amazing sound gushing out of the speaker and it makes you play for hoooours.

When you're playing in the house and your mom says "i was wondering what CD you were listening to then i realized it was you!"

and finally, when your girlfriend comments that a guitar in your hands makes her wanna........ :shock: ...yeah, or something...

The first time you play something someone recognises - without vocals.

The first time you think "Hey I've just answered a question on the beginner's forum instead of asking one...!!!"

The first time you record something that sounds good to you....

The first time you record one of your own songs and it sounds good to you...

The first time you use more than two tracks to record something...

The first time you play one of your own songs in the pub and someone says "that was good, where can I find a tab for it?"

The first time you play along with a song you don't know that well by following other people's chord changes by watching their fingers...

You play your first open mic, you don't forget the lyrics, and you get through the chord changes without any major mishaps...

Hmmmmm......all the above have happened to me in the last 18 months...

:D :D :D :D :D

For me it was the first time playing an eyes closed solo
and heard spontaneous applause from the crowd.

I know that's terribly self indulgent but it felt SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Good.
