Hello Lord GB and welcome back!

I fully empathise with you there, I'm just now returning to guitar after a long hiatus. Rediscovering the joy, frustration and satisfaction of trying to learn and develop is giving me plenty of motivation to keep going  though, I hope you can find some of that joy also. I look forward to hearing (maybe seeing?) your music if you choose to put it out there  :D 8).

I found the joy (and frustrations) back allright.  :D
Big difference now is how i approach the whole thing.
I won't let myself get frustrated and brought down again.

I forgot what it was to play a guitar and actually enjoy it.
Too much vitriol and downright arrogance from other players (on other forums, mainly dutch speaking), towards other players, pushed me finally over the edge. Thinking "yeah, they're right, i'll never amount to anything."
Letting others tell me what i could and couldn't do.
Well, not anymore. I have silenced those voices and will avoid such people. (i've came across at least 2 irl in the past year Who knew players could be such a******s?).

So from now on, i'll accept criticism if it's founded on a solid basis. Not on the likes of: "oh, you can't play (fill in blank here)? I'd quit if i where you. Why do you even try?".

And that's where this community stands out among others i've visited over the years. I've shortened the list to one. This here.
Thanks for being there guys and gals. :D
I'll get it in the end. Just don't give up, that's the key....

Glad you've worked through this, Lord GB, and come back to playing.

Just beyond me why people would feel the need to make the kind of comments you've mentioned here. Really sad for them.

And if the only legitimate players were the world's greatest then there'd be almost no guitar players in the world, since there are only few that achieve the greatest levels of excellence and mastery.

Look forward to hearing you play when you are ready.

Unfortunately there are a lot of forum/sites like that. I’ve come off both a Martin owners and a Gibson owners Facebook pages. People would post things and be bombarded with ‘how can you possibly not know that, your guitar is cr%p, your playing is awful, you should be doing this not that. In other words there are so many people on other forums etc who think only their view/opinion is valid.
The internet can be a cruel place where cruel ignorant people can lurk in anonymity.

I agree. Everyone was a beginner at some point and I honestly don't understand why people would look down on their peers because of their playing ability (or the gear they use, the artists they like, etc.).

I think the nice thing about this forum is that it's a forum focused on learning and playing the guitar and it has a very high proportion of the membership who are beginners or intermediate players who know their limitations. I think that means people here are more grounded and less arrogant.

Cheers,

Keith

I think that a great deal of the quality and good nature of this forum is fostered by our two mods Richard and Lieven.  The excellence, vigilance, time and effort spent in keeping this mighty ship on course, is evident in so many ways.

Back to you now Lord G, sorry for this hijack.

Know you are in good company here and you will always be treated with kindness and respect.

Very well spoken batwoman.

This is a very nice place to hang out and it's members and mods make it into the nice place it is.
A huge thank you to everybody here, for keeping it this way.

Now it's back to practice, i've missed out on some nice things.

I'll get it in the end. Just don't give up, that's the key....

Small update:

i know now when i can enroll in the music school where i live. The date is marked in my calendar, the funds have been put aside. I can't wait to get started.
This will be a HUGE step forward for me. (so i hope).

Recording is up and running. I'm playing around with the position of the mic to get my voice and guitar somewhat on the same level.
I'm learning songs which i will record and post here. I'm even trying to sing along. I don't know if it'll do any good, but i'll see. Like CT says, "just let 'er rip".
And that's exactly what i'm going to do.

So, note to self: get going, get learning, get playing.
I'll get it in the end. Just don't give up, that's the key....

That sounds great, LG.

As you say "let rip" enjoy yourself, make some music. And we all keep learning as we go.

Great to see you so motivated LG.  I'm curious to know more about your course.

Good luck with enrollment, what sort of music school this is, just a normal guitar lessons or more of a dchool where you learn notations, theory and you have exams at the end?

Keep on rockin' my friends

It seems to have it all. Judging on the site, that is.

They teach theory, singing and playing. I've enrolled in the adult course and it features all three.
I'm not looking forward to the singing part, because i can't, but it's a group thing, so that's ok.
I won't stand out that much. (unless there's some cats coming in, wondering where that other one is.  :o)

Here's the site, with the course. It's in dutch, so i don't know how if this will translate well.
