here might be some possible situations:

1. you're able to play one song
2. you're able to play the songs you wanted to play
3. you're able to play some songs people like

but in my opinion; let others do the judging, don't to it for them
= good music is good drinking =

It's not one or the other. It's both. Always. :)

I tend to be self deprecating and say 'meh, I'm trying to learn a bit'. If they think I'm awesome, then so much the better. ;)
...so ever since then, I always hang on to the buckle.

Clearly you've not heard Razbo on his guitar.

Neither have you! :p I am, in fact, quite awesome.

[QUOTE=RickBlacker]They're not.


My Mom thinks so.

Why you got to hate, man? Why you got to hate?

The key is to not worry about what other people think very early on. The more the cloud of worry and doubt hovers over you the harder it is to abandon it. Remember that if you never stop playing, you never stop learning. That being said, saying both things is more than adequate. Got get em! :cool:

I think I know where you're coming from here.

When I say I play guitar I feel that I should be able to back it up by delivering a searing riff that wows the “audience” at the very least. Or telling them how many bands I've been in :cool: Anything else is a big letdown surely!

In reality I'm happy to say I enjoy playing and improving and that one day I might be able to hold my head and say proudly "I play guitar" :D and in my heart I don't feel like I'm faking it!

Glad I stay in my dog house "Shed" so no one hears me play or wants to! Very few know I am playing again and I want to keep it that way until I am good. Check back with me in 5 years!

Yep, I hear you. My wife was saying the other day that she never gets to hear me play... Honey, that's by design! :p
