Hello Peak and welcome to the forum.

Being able to play without it sounding too awful is a pretty good goal I'd say.

Hi, I'm Martin


I came across Justin on Utube some time ago and purchased one of his beginners books, but time and work got in the way and I put the guitar back in loft.
 Moving on a couple of years and in my retirement year, and with a little more time on my hands, it's back down again. Time for a little catch up :)

Nickname: Rosewhisper
Real (full) name: Casey (I'd rather not give my surname sorry)
Age and birthday: I'm 31 (I'd rather not give my DOB sorry)
Habitat: UK

Which guitar(s) do you own?
I'm not really sure what it's called I'm afraid, I know it's a freedom, I literally purchased it from a supermarket in a starter set.
Which guitar do you currently play on?
The same one.
Which amp(s) do you own?
Freedom GFB-10, although I've never used it! I tend to play using rocksmith or I play it unplugged.
How long have you been playing guitar?
Just under 5 months so far. It's awesome!
Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?
Symphonic power metal.
Which genre do you play on your guitar often?
Uhh...maybe the rocksmith lessons, that's about it sadly :(
Who are your favorite bands?
Probably Nightwish
What inspired you to start playing guitar?
I've always wanted to do it but I've always had the thought that it would be impossible for me because I have a disability, but sometimes when you've wanted to do something for years and years eventually it just bubbles over doesn't it?
Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
No, too early for that I think. It doesn't help that I don't know anyone else who plays IRL at the moment.
Why do you play guitar?
I needed a creative outlet in life and I hoped that it would be one, what I wasn't expecting though is how incredibly fun it is and that feeling of accomplishment is addictive!
What are your goals for the future?
I really don't know how far I can take it, I expect I will hit a limit eventually but I haven't hit that yet, when I picked it up I didn't even think I'd be able to play a camp fire song so the fact that I'm starting to develop any skill at all has been overwhelming and I think that my goal will forever keep moving forward. I think a humble one could be maybe one day years from now I might be playing the 12 bar blues backing track but I'm not sure I'll ever get there, we can dream though can't we? :)

Started playing guitar as a teen (70's).  Stopped when I dislocated a finger on my left hand.  Picked it back up and played (never got good) into my twenties.  Eventually bought a brand new '84 Gibson Custom Les Paul.  Tried to keep playing but got married an had children.  Now I'm retired, want to pick up playing again and found this great site! After going thru all the beginner intro videos andsetting up my LP, I'm ready to start.  Wish me luck!  ;)

Nickname: Hank Ellis
Real (full) name: Hank Ellis
Age and birthday: 61 16 Feb 1958
Habitat: Louisiana, USA

Which guitar(s) do you own? Soon to be a Yamaha Pacifica 212.

Which guitar do you currently play on? A one string cigar box diddley bow.

Which amp(s) do you own? Blackstar Fly3. Soon to be a Fender Champion 20.

How long have you been playing guitar? 2 days

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)? 60s and 70s rock. Blues. Jazz. Roots music.

Which genre do you play on your guitar often? Since I have only the diddley bow, roots.

Who are your favorite bands? Led Zeppelin. Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Fleetwood Mac.

What inspired you to start playing guitar? Bucket list. I ain't getting younger and I want to learn an instrument.

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

Why do you play guitar? See inspiration.

What are your goals for the future? To get good enough to at least play along with the music I have on vinyl. Yeah, I'm old but I got to see all the good bands.

By the way Justin, we have a lot in common. I used to motorcycle drag race but gave that up when I saw too many of my friends having getoffs at speed. Took up skydiving instead. 2000 jumps and competed at a Nationals level. My main gig was doing the blots. Formations of 100 or more. Getting married and having responsibility cooled that off. However my bride and I scuba dive and go to Cozumel nearly every year. And yeah, I don't get to go as often as I like. Oh, and your obsession with chocolate? Get over it. Chocolate is one of the four major food groups. Don't deny yourself.

Nickname: Seki
Real name: Lennart
Age: 24
Habitat: Germany


Which guitar(s) do you own?
Lakewood Dreadnought, unfortunately broken and pretty old
Ibanez Les-Paul shaped, second hand

Which guitar do you currently play on?
The acoustic one, but mostly just for learning. It doesn't sound well, so its not really fun playing on it.
So I'm saving for a new one, right now. (Tailor Auditorium)

Which amp(s) do you own?
None, I used to have cheap ones, but they sounded terrible and eventually broke.

For how long have you been playing guitar?
About 7 years, but regularly stopped practicing.

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?
Classic rock from 60's-70's, Old metal (like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and the likes) and modern rock. Lately some Progressive Rock.

Which genre do you play on your guitar often?
Mostly Rock'n'Roll and Folk at the moment, because there are many easy songs for beginners

Who are your favorite bands?
Red Hot Chili Peppers is my absolute favourite. But also Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, Queen, Rainbow, Black Sabbath. I really love Bauhaus and Kraftwerk, although I usually don't hear the respective genres so much. Recently discovered Dot Hack.

What inspired you to start playing guitar?
John Frusciante looking awesome on stage and his music touching my heart. When I started I wanted to sound like him and through the years my love for music and playing guitar grew.

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

Why do you play guitar?
It really enjoy technical exercises like playing scales and stuff. Feels like playing video games with actual progress.
I also like to sing a lot, while playing guitar. I just want to make music that sounds well.

What are your goals for the future?
Get better equipment to get a good sound.
Become a better player, while having fun.
Find more bands and new music that I enjoy.
Eventually be part of a band, or at least jam occasionally with other people.

I still feel really shacky with some of my basics, which is why I'm re-learning guitar with Justin's Beginner Course. I'm currently in stage 7 and feel quite comfortable already, but I take my time, because I really want to get solid this time.

I've lurked here for about 2 years. Found the site after someone told me about rocksmith. I played for a few months then get distracted. Ive done that quite a few times but I'm trying my best to stick with it this time. With the expection of a little over a month break in Feb due to shoulder surgery, I've stuck with it for about 7 months now and I'm just starting to try to work big F into songs. Its slow going but I get better each time I pick up the guitar.

You guys don't know it but I've learned a lot from you all while lurking these forums. Thank you for that guys.

Badgerman you have a delightful sense of humour. This may be a great asset to you. As wise Mr Bumble notes, you're with friends who've been there. We hear you. I'd encourage you to post a recording. It will be a way of marking your progress and you'll get all sorts of excellent feedback and encouragement.
