    i have an Alvarez Spanish guitar, I kinda suck but picking it up again....the fret is slightly larger than my hand, so it's difficult for me, and I finger pick, no plastic....
    I would love to one day play anything even remotely close to this guy..


    And I would love to one day sing and play this at an open mic...

    I wish I could play banjo like Steve Martin. The greats make it look so effortless.

    I play guitar and I play in an 80's band. I have Marshall half stacks, Mesa Boogie amps, strats, a jem and I still suck after nearly 40 years of playing. I will be like Ritchie Blackmore some day.

    I have played guitar for 30 years. I was inspired when my mother told me to watch 'A Hard Days Night' in 1985, and over the years, I have picked up various other stringed instruments. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, I wanted to be Eddie Van Halen; now, I just strive to have my own identity. If I had to describe my influences, I would say EVH, Lennon, Gilmour, Clapton and Steve Lukather.

    I play drums and guitar. If I could play like Mitch Mitchell or Bonzo it would be the cats ass but I dont have time to practice anymore.

    I play a little piano.

    I bought a bass a few years back just so I could play this song....

    I play guitar but haven't been playing much lately. I play classical guitar and electric guitar. I've been at it for 20 years and was a music major for a few years in college. Used to have a band and did original music, very blues, pop funk stuff.

    Go get yourself a 3/4 Acoustic. Much easier for smaller hands

    Don't laugh. I do aspire to make a career of this.
    This is a shot of me performing one of my original compositions - Full Moon Interlude. A slow number with a lot of bass.
    I have vast knowledge of muscle density, bone structure, diet, etc. All to find that perfect beat.
    Puerto Ricans lend themselves well to my ensemble I might add.

    Always wanted to play the guitar, just casually.
