I'm not sure why, it's just something that always seemed so cool to me.

I would watch concerts when I was younger and my eye was drawn to the guitarist and they always seemed so free. Just in the zone enjoying themselves and adding little embelishments or phrases wherever they could or wanted to that wasn't on the CD track.

I was never patient enough when I was younger to really learn though. Turns out guitar is hard haha.

Now that I am older I have picked up guitar again and really enjoy it. Just like the guitar tricks ads would say, learning from youtube was a nightmare trying to find the right things to play and lessons that would build off each other, so here I am. I have no ambition to really be a rock star or anything, I just want to learn how to play and have fun.

I'm loving guitar tricks and just wanted to say hello to everyone on the forum.

Best regards!

Funnily enough, I always used to think the same about keyboard players. I grew up in the 80s in the UK with a lot of the sort of New Wave electronic stuff and loved watching people on keyboard. But now I'm playing a little bit of guitar, I realise what a fantastic and interesting instrument it is!

I also had the same experience with YouTube, hence my membership here.

Good luck Voncraider,
