Started pickin when I was 14 and haven't quit yet. Been all around this world toting a guitar. Served in the Marine Corps and played for the USO in Japan. Toured from Tallahassee, Florida to Elko, Nevada. Opened for Highway 101, Sammy Kershaw, Rodney Atkins, and Craig Morgan. Love pickin and singing. Slowed down in recent years so I can get more time in my tree stand. Still playing locally at home with some great musicians.

Word of advice for your little girl: Play through the pain for the first few months. The pain will stop and the fingers will get tough. It's all about the music after that.

Get her a few lessons for the basics and see if she really wants to follow thru on it.
Music is a great thing for the mind and the soul, something you can keep forever, if you choose. And a great way to make easy money if you have any talent too :)

I've been playing Bass guitar for about 6 years now - self taught. It's a great idea to go to a proper teacher - you can really improve at a faster rate that way. I play around 5 hours a week, give or take. Just stared archery earlier this year, so now I have two awesome hobbies!

I'm a bass player, or at least I've been faking it on stage for the last 27 years.

August 18th, 2010, 10:47 PM
25 years

I'm actually dumb enough to have a bachelors degree in guitar. In my defense, I went on scholarship and I was young... So yeah, I still play some. Not much, but I enjoy it when I do. Mainly just play at church now but only every now and again.

I've played about 14 years. Took 3 years off. I lead worship at the church. I hope she takes interest in it. I'm looking to start my kids with piano.

I've been working on Boston's Piece of Mind and More Than a Feeling, also Jim Croce I've Got a Name.

I started fooling with the guitar when I was around five. We had a stack of instruments in the house, and they were all fair game. I ended a professional musician as my prime income for 15 years, and I still do a handful of gigs every year. I play mandolin, Dobro, bass guitar and keyboards, too. And I write and sing. My kids are both professional musicians now, and they are having great careers. They make their daddy proud. There isn't a lot of money to be made as a musician, but it sure is fun!

I played for years before I lost my arm, I even learned classical guitar in college, that made me better than anything I'd ever done. I played electric & acoustic (acoustic was my favorite, esp classical), bass, mandolin, and sax, could also play a little drum kit. I'm now trying to learn how to play some stuff w/ a slide & the guitar laying flat on its back. Me and a buddy of mine made a slide that I can attach to a sleeve that fits on my stump, hopefully it works & I'll be playing again soon!!! I miss not being able to play music more than anything.

Been teaching myself on and off for about ten years. I can pick some tunes, but can't do anything really complex. I have a RH Yamaha Eterna EF-15 that I restrung LH, and was nothing but frustrated for a long time. About a year ago I had the bridge, and saddle replaced with LH pieces and it's made all the difference in the guitar. It plays so much easier now that the strings are properly set above the frets. I've been thinking of taking lessons from a friend who has played professionally his entire life. He's never had a "real job" and he is indeed a master.

Nothing special, but it sure has a nice sound.

Could really use a good guitar player for my boys band. They have played Kansas City and Lawerence. Won 2009 Metal Wars! Check them out!
