I think you'll be hard pressed to find any sizable group of people, with only one guitar player among them...

There are probably dozens of them here... I'm one of them. Why do you ask?

Yeah I guess you're right Tongue

no reason really, I would just like it if we could get a general discussion about it =) I don't really know anyone who share my interest in playing any instrument what so ever =/

So, have you played long? Smile I've been playing for almost 3 years now Tongue

Yep, me too, also drums.
Guitar wise, I tend to play lead, mostly rock sot of stuff, screaming solos, not so much a rythem person with the guitar as I get that thrill more from drumming, however am playing a fair bit of ska recently.

"for some reason it just doesn't agree with me :/"
If you can rub your belly and pat your head you should be fine, lots of people struggle to use all limbs seperatly, but it becomes natural after practice, like anything, play some broken 16ths and add what ever you like, always sounds good.

B1gfoot: Yeah I've heard that tip before, but even if I can get that part down, for some reason I just can't do anything right when it comes to the "real deal" :/

jovicakralj: that's a pretty nice one but I prefer acoustic guitars. although, I do occasionally play some electric guitar as well.

Actually played in a band back in High School and early 20's. Played some basic rhythm, bar cords and lead vocals for the most part. My cousin in California made it pretty big in a band called Motley Crue. Lived with him in Cali! This iis my Mother's,sister's son who was born in this hick town I live in now. Pretty amazing that he made it so big, but pure truth.

I started when I was about 15. I was a metalhead back then, but really only started to take it seriously when I went to university (lots of free time, I was playing 6 to 8 hours a day for years).

Taking my music more seriously also meant expanding my horizons, listening to all kinds of music. Soon coming to the conclusion that classical music was it for me. This however ultimately threw me into a crisis, guitar playing wise, because I don't care much for classical guitar.
Eventually this lead me to stop altogether. That lasted for a period of 10 years.

5 years ago I took it up again, which was a weird sensation, since it all came back to me rather quickly. It sort of felt like a boyhood fantasy, of picking up a guitar and playing like guitar hero straight away, without all the practice...

This is exactly what I wanted, getting a nice little discussion going, keep it up guys! Big Smile

I'm currently trying to learn CCRs Cotton Fields with the strumming pattern down, up, down, up, down, up and so on but it just doesn't sound good to me. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to play that song good? Smile

Yes this is true! Lived with him and his family for about a year in Cali before moving to Indiana. He's always provided backstage passes to the shows. I've got to meet some really cool people including Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Faster Pussycat, Poison and some other bands. Matter of fact they're on tour with KISS and I'll be seeing them in September. His real name is Bob Deal and maybe I'll scan and attach a couple photos.
I was at Tommy Lee and Heather Locklears wedding many years ago (2 decades). Mick is really dealing with major health issues at this time due to the bone marrow disease. I can't believe he made it so big. I was actually living in Washington back in 1983 when my Mother called and asked if I'd ever heard of the band Motley Crue. Of course I had, but I was arguing with her that there was no way that Bob played in this band. Hell, he had red hair, light complection with a lot of freckles and I didn't see anyone that fit that discription. Pretty amazing what dying your hair and cosmetics do to someone.

OK, first time iv ever heard it, and tried it your way, sounds odd.
Try dd uu du repeat. c f c g with capo on 1st. (guess you know that)
Actually quite easy, play it slow until you can build up to the speed you like, no real tempo for this.... that's when drumming comes in!
Then, add some echo and orange flange for a bit more fun, just play around find yourself a nice sound ohhh distortion and reverb always..yer.. that's why electric is better..

I liked Ozzy, especially in Black Sabbath. I think Steve Vai played in Whitesnake for a while. If we're talking guitar, his name should come up; that's just about the only hard rock I still listen to on occasion ("Passion and Warfare", and the two David Lee Roth albums he did). He's a very creative player...
