My cousin sold his Xbox trying to change his life and whatnot. He said he was going to learn how to play guitar and become a social butterfly or whatever. A year later, he's barely learned "Smoke On The Water" and spends all day wistfully watching Lets Plays of games he wishes he could be playing.

Moral of The Story: Play your ******* xbox.

year ago was going to see a girl. tidy my house and move out, stop my pc gaming get more work drive get my guitar everything, year later house is still a **** tip, still stuck playing wow all day, almost went to see girl but didnt, so literally nothing changed in a year except losing like £1000 on failed prospects.

moral of the story, unless you actually are going to change something dont even attempt to otherwise you will just dick yourself.

In his defense, Let's plays are awesome.

I actually prefer watching someone else play a game than playing it myself.

Me too, I suck at online games. And don't have friends that enjoy the same games I play.

To be fair, one year playing guitar won't give you much more than that.

after 30 hours of guitar playing, you can search up just about every song and play the chords to it... if you wanna learn fast at least.

I started playing by myself and within in a month i knew all the basic acchords and I can easily learn many riffs

what the hell are you talking about?

when i started playing i could play smoke on the water after a month

There's a big difference between learning to play something, and actually being able to remember it a year later.

When i was playing guitar i learned to play Blackbird by Paul mccartney flawlessly. Now about 1.5 years after, i cant even play a single note of that song.

Learning to actually play guitar takes so much time.

actually playing the guitar means you can improvise really well and can learn songs by ear, but he said his cousin barely learned smoke on the water.... that's just one song with just a few note's.... that doesn't take you a year if you actually practise!

No no of course not
But it's really hard to not forget everything you learn on guitar. I never got to the point where i could progress without forgetting something i had already learned.

not that's true, hell i don't even know about any songs i learned only a half year ago

Well... I guess I started off reeeeaaally slowly.

I started with a classical guitar, and my teacher would only teach me nothing but major chords
User avatar #37 to #36 - atheistzilla (12/31/2013) [-]
well... i guess that makes sort of sence then

anyway, now it's been six years, I'm ******* desperate traying to save money for a decent guitar,

This squier bullet strat is a pain in the ass at this point
User avatar #39 to #38 - atheistzilla (12/31/2013) [-]
well whatever you are going to buy, my advice to you is not rush into buying a new guitar. i have bought an esp ltd EC401 fm a year ago for 750 euro and i didn't really like it and my main guitar now is a squier classic vibe telecaster which only costed 350, so try things out before you go buy it.

and after all my experience with guitars i'm now actually the bassist of a metal band, did not expect that would happen

Nah, I'm pretty sure what I'm looking for. It's about Epiphone Les Pauls.

I'm between an Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro, which has coil split (400€)
Epiphone Les Paul Junior (300€) Only P90s, no humbucker
And an Epiphone LEs Paul standard with pure humbuckers (I guess it's around 300€ too, but I'm not sure)

My suggestion is to make sure you actually get a chance to play the instrument before you buy it. Not all guitars are made equal, even in the same model line. You'd be surprised how many people will order a guitar online or something, then when they get it they realize that they hate the neck, or something else about the guitar sucks that they would have realized if they had played it before hand.

My two cents, but yeah, rant over haha
#114 to #77 - hairibar (01/01/2014) [-]
Yeah, I knew that, i even know where to buy it. It's just about getting the money
User avatar #52 to #50 - atheistzilla (12/31/2013) [-]
i actually played all those guitars once, i think i liked the plustop pro the most but it's all personal preference

they're all good guitars
#115 to #52 - hairibar (01/01/2014) [-]
That's also what I think I end up playing
