I decided to take up a new hobby

Ive decided to learn how to play the guitar. No real formal lessons or anything, just gonna do some jammin' with a couple buddies in the house. Tonight I learned a few different notes and played an A and B over and over and then another guy went off on some solo while i kept a rythm goin... it was pretty sweet, plus the chicks love guitars. Hopefully in a year or so Ill be decent

Guitar is an awesome thing. I've been playing for over 10 years and its one thing that I would never give up. Keep practicing man and you'd be surprised the things you can do with a guitar.

sweet dude guitar is addicting, cause some nights youll just start wailing away and venting emotions and **** and look at the clock and 2 hours went by like 5 minutes. i started out with bass then moved on to guitar just to broaden my horizons, and never really went back to bass cause i realized i didnt like playing in the background, im more frontman kinda type.

What style do you play and also what kind of guitar do you play?

bass and drums > guitar

also... i know exactly what you mean.. ill wake up on a saturday with nothing to do and ill take a shower and maybe play some video games.. then i pick up the guitar.. next thing you know its dark out. thats how you get good though and how stuff is created. days like this i go to my band and im like hey i made an awesome bassline. a distortion pedal with 80 distortions helps too haha.. just playing around with that is a lot of fun. oh.. and lastly.. my pedal has drum beats on it too.. like.. 20+ on it. that way i can jam whenever...

If you need any help or pointers... let me know... I've been playing for 10 years

And yes... guitar players get more chicks

Guitar players and lead singers combined get even more

Good deal. BTW doesnt hurt to take lessons I took lessons for two years on bass and let me tell you best 20 bucks a session ever spent. Learned alot more and quicker with someone showing me then learning on my own.

What you do introduce yourself and then say hey look I play guitar

Cars are known for panty droppers remember that not guitar (well unless your in a rock band that works)

LOL, I remember trying to get calises on my fingers. but the fact is, you just need to get used to the fact that you'll have sore fingers until your fingers are strong enough to go through the amount of use you're putting on them.

I remember playing for 8 hours a day after school for about 8 months when I first got my guitar... first week, my fingers almost bled every night. after that, they didnt hurt anymore.

You mean you want callouses?

I play(ed) bass, and I had a massive one on the inside of my thumb from slappin the strings. People said Flea from RHCP used to pour super glue into the hole he'd get from playin so hard, so I didn't complain, haha.

Yeah, I would definitely suggest playing on your friend's guitar until you decide you really wanna play. Then pick up a guitar of your own, and learn tabs (really really easy). After a few months of tabs, then take some lessons. They'll multiply what you know by about 100x.
