What's your story?

i've been playing scence, late 2002 (age 11). the reason why is: i saw my friend play arpeggios from hell and i was trying to impress this girl at my school. so i played for like 13 hours a day for the first 2 years. thats all i really do, cuz its somthing i love. ohh me and that one chick, yea we're still going out. im sending my stuff to guitar player u know that mike varney's(shrapnel records) spotlight. so look out for me.(i play anything and everything, especially how i feel. i have a shit load of recordings but it wont let me post them.)
What's your story?

I had this real cheap acoustic guitar when i was 8 years old and started playing random things on it. A i got better i started to like it and learnt how to read tabs. when i was 10 years old i got my first electric guitar and started playing stuff on it. Since I was 11 i started playing death metal. Now i'm 18 1/2 years old and I still play death metal mainly. Only I got a lot better since

Started with acoustic at 12 in music class at school, nothing too serious just some basic chords and stuff and I got hooked and my dad got me an acoustic which I still have, after one year I thought I could try electric guitar and thats how its been til now, I'm soon 16 FYI.

I have listened to bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Slayer and Metallica...also alot of 80s punk... since I was born.
I was a surprise baby...unexpected, and have a sister 14 yrs older than me and she was 14 in 1985 so you can imagine the great stuff I grew up hearing.

As far back as I can remember I knew I was going to play guitar...and when the time came in my life where I was able to get my own...I started going into Pawn Shops and shortly before I turned 15 got my first axe.

Life has only gotten better and better.

I first started playing when i was 16, I'd always wanted to start playin since listening to hendrix and iommi when younger. However i never got around to it until i got introduced to bass by my bro. It was fun but i didnt find it challenging and i always wanted to play guiitar so i took it up and i ve never put it down since

Started in last December. Bought a Schecter C-1 Classic, a Line 6 Guitarport, and have been practicing religiously since. I recently auditioned for a band and made it. We are currently rehearsing to open for a Goatwhore show at the end of June. It'll be our first gig after one month of being together as a band.

I had nothing to do in the music class, so my teacher told me that i should go to this guitar class that she had. I did. It took like two weeks then i couldn't resist it and i started playing like hell. Then we had this concert, and i played Love hurts with my band. I played and sang so well that my mother started to cry. Then like one month after that concert i got my first electric guitar from my father. Then i got my hands on GP4 and I just kept learning more and more and soon after that i got more into metal. So i bought a new guitar and made up a real rig(sorta) and now we're having a concert in two days(on thursday). I'll be playing Paranoid and Enter Sandman(i'll be doing the solos in both of them).

I decided that i wanted to make some music, not just listen to it- so i started to play guitar. Been playing about 3 years now, trying to get a band together, want to play death/doom/black metal, but finding it difficult to find like-minded musicians

What's your story?


how can u love something that u only do to impress a chick, that sounds pretty stupid.

but to ur general question, i started playing guitar as soon as i heard metallica, pantera, and ozzy osbourne. they influenced me so much when i started. my first year playing i played fade to black in front of 500 kids at my school. now i listen to even heavier, faster shit which makes me wanna play even more than i already do. i hope to get a label from centry media someday.

Are you kidding? Guys are constantly doing stupid things to impress us.
And most are so counter productive...so I give a lil credit to a guy if jamming is the extreme he'll go to to impress a girl.
I mean fuck....do you know how many real life Jackass stunts I've witnessed all in the name of....
"Check me out ladies"
right before their self induced carnage begins...LOL

However...I love guys and their crazy antics!

well i had my first electric guitar when i was 15, and even though i was into metal i didnt really play it for quite a few years, that is untill when i was 18, and i got into a fight with my dad and stabbed him in the chest, i thought he was gonna die, so i got so upset that i wouldnt go out or anything so i just sat down for a couple of months and played guitar nearly all day long, he got better and i started going out again but i never really stopped playing guitar up untill i got my business running, then a year or so later i bought loads of eqquipment a new guitar and got back into it

Started playing when i was 16, im 17 now. My friend played the guitar and i thought it was real cool, he taught me a couple of songs on the acoustic, a tool song and 'by the rivers of babylon' i think it was lol. But yeah i loved it instantly. Had a little 3/4 acoustic at home which was alright for a while, then the bridge snapped off. Then i really got into it after learning to read tabs, got an electric and basically learnt tool, easy drop D stuff.
Then i became more fond of opeth when i was playing the guitar, you dont notice the talent in music unless you have tried it. So i started learning some opeth riffs, a bit of their acoustic. I was practicing a few hours every day (how ever long my wrists and fingers could handle.) I never really looked at it as practicing, you think of practise as something you have to do - i play because i love it.
Now a year later i just download a gp4 tab of anything i hear that sounds cool. Im learning a lot of Pink Floyd lately, building up speed, bends all that sorta stuff.

I still want to get lessons, be shown everything im doing wrong.
Well thats about it enough.
