Sinfesters have spoken. Here's the thread to talk and brag about your instruments, playing ability, rockstar perks, whatever. Respect those whose skills aren't as great; even baby Jimi had to start somewhere. Let the jam begin. On four! One! Two! One, Two, Three, Four!...

I'm starting to pick up blues guitar and the theory behind it. Practice is much needed though.

A guitar would be handy too, actually Sad Still need to buy strings for the guitar I'm borrowing from my brother.

www.webstrings.com

Supposedly they're just as good as regular old strings, but they're $3.00 a pack. If you make an order over $12.00 and don't live outside the US, you don't even have to pay for shipping.

I play mediocre acoustic guitar. I'm trying to make myself slow down and relax, and pick up some musical theory, but sometimes I'm far too lazy. I'd record myself playing, but the only microphone I've got makes my big ol' dreadnaught sound like a ukelele. I paid $60 for it, and aside from changing the strings and having a new nut installed, it plays and sounds great.

Waiter, that was great.

The combination of my lack of playing ability and having way too many friends who play guitar/bass really well has convinced me to never publicly post/discuss my playing. ^_^

Nice job. What did you use to record/master? And, I'm assuming that was you on both instruments...

I've always wanted to learn to play the guitar but have never actually tried.

After being surrounded by really good instrumentalists when I was in the music program, I decided I would never be able to play anything.

So I sing. Voice Performance was my major for 4 years, focusing on Opera, Musical Theatre, and Choral works.

I play the piano extremely poorly.

All these guitar and bass players... but where are my horn players? I can't be the only one.

I play Alto, Tenor, and Baritone sax. And like a lot of people I play piano... horribly. Yet I enjoy it so much. Ah well. At least I know it.

I've dabbled in bass and mandolin, but I always get drawn back to guitar. Mandolin and bass just really aren't all that fun to play solo.

When I was a kiddie, I was grade 8 violin and piano. I sang, I played drums, I played guitar and bass guitar, recorder, and had a bash at the oboe.

But now I just kinda tap along to the radio on my desk. Hoorah.

Yep, that's all me. Just a shitty computer mic to record, and mastered with AcidExpress, a free program. www.acidplanet.com although the site was having trouble earlier. It's not bad, does the trick.

Acoustic is an Art & Lutherie, pretty decent lower end acoustic. Electric is an Epiphone SG. It is oh so sexy, and does lead quite well. Has sort of a bluesey sound that I like, but still twangy/thin-sounding enough that it's quite audible over other instruments.
