Topic: What inspired you to start playing guitar??
The title pretty much says it all... What inspired you to start playing guitar?? Love of music, family/friends, maybe to catch the eye of that girl or maybe it was a certain song or artist that inspired you?? just wondering what started you on this journey.
My story is nothing special... My parents bought me an old lawsuit Tak (d18 copy) back in '85 and signed me up for lessons. I hadn't asked or expressed any real interest in it at the time but went along with the lessons for about a year... I remember learning my first song "El Paso" by Marty Robbins After that first year (I was 13 at this point) I got really into freestyle bmx and skating and forgot all about the guitar... So for the next 20 years I hardly ever picked it up and forgot everything I had learned Then one day an employee of mine asked me for a pay advance so he could get his guitar out of lay-a-way at the local music store. So I say "Sure, I'll run you by there after work and take care of it" I watched him trying to learn on lunch breaks for about 3 weeks and decided I had to give it a go again myself. So my wife ordered me a Takamine G340 (my old tak had been stolen years before) for an anniversary present almost 4 years ago and the rest is history I'm pretty sure I got the guitar in on the 20th of November '06... I think it's cool that I'll get to spend my 4 year playing anniversary jamming with some fellow Chordians -Pix
