Who are your favorite bands?
AC/DC, Pink Floyd

What inspired you to start playing guitar?
Back in school my music teacher told me I had no musical talent at all - and I kind of believed him. After all that was a good excuse for me being too lazy to put any effort into learning an instrument - although I really liked the idea of playing the guitar - but without talent? Why bother? So it never happend.

Lately I came across the "talent is overrated"-discussion - it basically tells you to forget about talent, if you put enough effort in it and follow a good steady learning path you can learn just about everything. No excuses anymore. ;-)

Justin provides a very good learning path and I am willing put work into it - so here I am.

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
No.

Why do you play guitar?
I love the sound and the diversity of it.

In terms of learning you get instant feedback: if it sounds good, it is good ;-)

What are your goals for the future?
Play along/improvise to my favorite songs.

Habitat: Florida, USA

Which guitar(s) do you own?
Yamaha 120H

Which amp(s) do you own?
Just a 30W Marshall


How long have you been playing guitar?
13 days :)

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?
Mostly rock but quite a bit of everything. Marilyn Manson, Nirvana, Pat Benatar, Conway Twitty, Jefferson Airplane, Van Halen, and more. Like I said quite a bit of everything.

What inspired you to start playing guitar?
When I was a pre-teen I listened to the radio and always thought it would be fun to play guitar for myself and others. So, I just now got around to learning.

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
No plans to except with some buddies.

Why do you play guitar?
It's only been a few days but I'm addicted to the growth and learning! The right sound is the reward for playing well. Even playing a few bars right from a simple song just brings me such joy. I can only imagine how good it will feel to play the songs I love well. If I happen to make the people I care about smile and see them actually enjoy ME playing? As in creating a positive emotional response? Wow. It would be probably throw me off rhythm completely.

What are your goals for the future?
I think what I wrote just above covers it!
