I finally did something worth sharing on FJ! May admin have mercy upon my sorry MS paint skills.

This thing took me about
a year to finish, and I
thought it was worth
sharing with you guys.
Details are the stern caps I
used for knobs, the strap
screws and the kickbox on
the strap. Thanks for your
...

I made my own tiny banjo. Didn't take a year, though. Only, like a week. And only one trip to the hospital.

Was using a wood saw early on and I sawed into two of my fingers.

solid mahogany body, swamp ash carve top, and padouk accents (the red stripes)
it sounds great and has WICKED resonance, i timed from one strum to when the string finally stopped at 3 minutes. but its extremely heavy and i cannot play well

Learn to play Hotel California over night and then come see me, you ignorant little twat.
User avatar #67 to #41 - kingnarnode (05/28/2012) [-]
lmao I play guitar, and no offense to the eagles because I love them, but if some one actually spent all night practicing they could probably learn the solo
User avatar #94 to #67 - conagheraxe (05/28/2012) [-]
It's true, the song is relatively easy. Although if someone had started playing guitar that day they probably wouldn't be able to play the song.

That's because most people probably could. Picking up a skill is easy. The thing that makes great musicians notable is their mental ability and capability to communicate emotion through strings. Tons of people play technically way better than me, but when you ask me to play how I feel, I'll blow everyone out of the water.

An Asian kid could learn hotel california in an hour. You give them a cord sheet and ask them to improv through the song, they wouldn't be able to do it.

hahaha, you cant stand not having the last word, sometimes being the last to respond doesnt make you be right buddy, for example.now i have cleared my statement that your story is ******** and that I believe you are infantile, I dont have nothing else to say, but youll reply me, because you wouldnt bear not to make clear you are the one right,but i wont reply back, thatll make my point

Dude guitar is not easy at all, well not proper guitar.
It's easy if you wanna play songs with the same three or four chord progression but you can't go around calling yourself a guitarist after that you need to be playing at least a year and a half to maybe two years of guitar whilst learning scales to at least call yourself an amateur musician. If you hear some metal bands a majority of their solo's are played by using variations of scales below the twelfth fret, not to mention finger tapping, hammer on's, pull off's and pinch harmonics. You also need to train your fingers to move that fast. So please stop saying this **** and stop and I repeat STOP saying guitar is easy because I don't want ******* morons buying guitars and thinking their the next Ed Sheerin or however you spell that cunts name. Good-day sir!

Being a guitar player is easy; being a guitarist is much harder.

It's not easy to learn if you're just beginning, idiot.

"YEAH!"

Guitar is easy if you want to play ******* wonderwall like every other asshole with a wool hat on who claims to be a musician. It is VERY difficult to actually play guitar well, understand the theory behind it, understand the scales and how to solo, how to play with any musician.

I think guitar is just one of those instruments that is really easy to pick up and start messing around with, but like anything else it's very difficult to actually get anything worthwhile out of it without putting the effort and time forth to learning it. Just my two cents.
User avatar #84 to #42 - daggget (05/28/2012) [-]
I would argue that bass is harder to play than guitar... as a good bassist you have a much high commitment to tying a rhythm section together with the drummer (just going off a standard 3-4 member band). I mean just look at John Paul Jones' work compared to Jimmy Page's with Led Zeppelin, I don't think you can say that Jones work was any less valuable because he played bass, in fact I would argue that in terms of the actual music being played (because Page's role in the band also extended beyond guitar work and very heavily into the production of the music) I find his work to be just as difficult, if not more so, to play than Page's work.

quit bitching, I'm sure you think that Herman Li and Sam Totman of Dragonforce, learned guitar overnight, how about Steve Vai, what about Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix and everyone else learned it overnight. learning guitar is the hardest thing i've done in my life. Now go home and play your ******* recorder
User avatar #86 to #85 - supermajinkidbuu (05/28/2012) [-]

Don't get cocky just because you have a high rank. You're acting like a dick. I can't play guitar for my life, but if you asked me to play Beethoven's ninth symphony on piano, I'd be all over it.

tl;dr You're the cunt

Really irritates me when people who can pretty much play Nirvana- come as you are claim to be some sort of magnificent guitarist. I've been playing the guitar for around a year now and i'm not especially great, but it is a very hard instrument to learn really, I am learning the scales and octaves blahblahblah at the moment, god damn its hard.
I mainly play Metallica and AC DC songs, oh yeah.

This is my air guitar proudly displayed on my sofa. I designed and crafted the entire thing myself.
