Hey, not that it matters or anything but I was just wondering how old you all are and how long you've been playing guitar?
08-19-2000, 07:32 PM
i'm 18 and i've been playing close to 2 years(20 months i think).
08-19-2000, 08:29 PM
I'm 16 and I've been playing for almost one year. (In about a week will be the one year anniversary since I first decided on a whim to pick up the old peice of junk in the basement and learn how to play, and also when I discarded my previous attraction to rap hip/hop which was "in style" and embraced my newfound passion for rock and roll).

17 and 2 1/2 years with my hunk of wood..

35. playing since 1980. I was inspired by a good friend who owned a Les Paul. He worked all summer to buy it (back then a Std. cost $750 new) so I got a cheap iumport copy that required a kung fu grip to play and a solid state Ampeg amp with a 8" speaker which, no joke, lasted about 40 min. after I got it home. We cranked out Neil Young tunes for a long time until his fater, a freaked out fundamentalist on a crusade against Satan, smashed his LP to pieces on the side of their brick house. Ouch.
It's been a long strage trip. ;-)

08-21-2000, 10:07 AM

08-21-2000, 10:09 AM
What brought you here in 99?
08-21-2000, 05:30 PM
Holiday. We( my family) spent some time in NYC, that was pretty cool, and then we flew to VB. There was, though, some musicians that played on the atlantic? boulevard. They seemed bored ( the played irish music) but they were good.
08-21-2000, 05:31 PM

I'm 47 and have been playing since 1959. My older brothers were taking guitar lessons (Ventures, etc.) and I bugged them until they showed me how to play what they learned. I have played off and on for all those years, but about 5 years ago I started playing regularly again.
09-09-2000, 02:14 AM
I'm 17 and have been playing for 2 years now. Never took lessons, I just used books & stuff and spent (still do) several hours a day playing. I'm actually left handed, but I play guitar right handed. I've always wondered if this would affect my playing since guitar takes both hands to play, does aybody know?

Well this is my first post. Anyways...
Im 21 and started to play a bit at 18 but just now actually "playing". I have no theory knowledge and im not that good. I can play songs of tab websites but I actually want to learn "how to play" as in theory. Any suggestions so im not stuck playing AC/DC tabs for the rest of my life.

whazza kung-fu grip guitar then? (i knew it was monkey grip, just thought you had a different name for it)
10-24-2000, 06:16 PM
i dunno. somebody on the first page of this thread said he had a kung fu grip guitar. i think he meant one where the action is really bad and you have to grip it real hard.
10-25-2000, 02:31 AM
I just turned 20 and I've been playing since fall of '99.
10-25-2000, 04:27 AM
