Does anyone play an axe here? How long have you been playing? How good are you? How often do you practice? What guitars do you own?

I play. Not good. basically I can strum chords and play some simple songs. I have an Ovation 1861 Standard Balladeer acoustic/electric.

Looks like this:

I just own an old acoustic guitar - and can play C F and G (or G7 on a good day)

Haven't played in a long time, but wanna get back to it.

My oldest brother (in Heaven since about 1974) played a 12 string, and he was every bit as good (IMOHBAO) as Chet Atkins -- that boy could PLAY!!!!

I learned how to play to impress a girl. Didn't work. :hehe:

Now my brother, he is 14 years younger than me. I took my guitar home (I had two electric guitars at the time) when he was still living at home as a 14 year old. He wanted to learn how to play, so I gave him one of mine. I came home a few months later and the kid was playing music off of the radio by ear. He liked Metallica and that type of music. He just picked it up. Natural talent. Started playing in bands with his friends. He is in his 40s now and still plays. I think he owns like a dozen guitars now, including bass.

I was lucky to learn how to play more than 4 chords. But I was at a disadvantage. I am left-handed and I couldn't find a left-handed guitar so I learned how to play right-handed. But later when I did get a left-handed guitar, it felt really weird and I couldn't make the chords with my right hand, so I just stuck with playing it right-handed.

My aforementioned brother left for the US Navy with no guitar experience whatsoever, a couple years later, came home on leave with a guitar and a girlfriend - and wow.... we sat for HOURS asking him to play various songs... he could play AND sing, and he was really good at it.

He was in ordnance on the USS Ranger (aircraft carrier) and when he wasn't loading missiles on airplanes, he was practicing and playing his guitar.

My baby brother much younger than I am (2 years) played very well. His fingers finally rebelled on him a few years ago and he had to give it up. I think that was as hard for him as giving up bees was for me.

I caught the pick you tossed into the crowd at the end.

That was by accident. I forgot to strap it down.

And how many times did :cp: and I warn you about how dangerous it was for you to keep doing that Pete Townshend "Windmill" move with a hook? :glare:

Spark should also be warned not to demolish his guitar Townshend style:

The fortunate thing is he can just attach strings to his leg and he'll be back in business!

Until he decided he wanted an electric his leg/guitar and hooked himself up to a car battery...

Let's just say even the clones at roguetech have more smarts than that. We all abandoned ship when Sparko pulled out the jumper cables and started attaching them... Well, forget about that (I wish I could). Here's a photo either the Annoying Orange or that singular naughty swine[1] took showing what happened from our perspective:

That guy's picking hands looks like it WANTS to be replaced with a hook.
