When did you start?
It funny, I started playing proabaly 10 months ago and in that time I've become better the people I know who've been playing for 5 years. But guitars the best thing that ever happend to me, before that I had to much free time an actaully saved my money, now me and my band rock out an I have no money, and you can guess where all my money goes to :wink:
be good at what you can do-
I took lessons for six months or so when I was 12. I was still playing stuff like Camptown Races, when a good friend of mine also started playing and in a couple weeks he was playing Status Quo and Hendrix songs (I'm sure it wasn't that good but compared to what I could do...). I figured I was meant to be a listener and not a player so I quit and didn't pick it up again until a year ago. (30 years later). Though I was many times tempted to try again over the intervening years I never had the time. What really kicked me into it was seeing my seven year old son's incredible love for music and knowing that before long he'd be playing so I figured the time was right to try again. I've learned way more than I thought I would have in one year, though of course I still stink. But I think in a couple years I might be OK. I can't imagine ever NOT playing now.
I started last year at age 43.
Blame it on the lies that killed us, blame it on the truth that ran us down.
Started late July this year, having just turned 26.
