  • Anyone play guitar, or learning, or just collect guitars because they look good?

    I have a few and a 1/2 decent Peavey Amp. I just play enough to get me into trouble, mostly Floyd stuff, some Hip and the odd AC/DC and Metallica riff

    Have an electrified acoustic, a Fender Squire Strat and a recently refurbished Vintage Hondo 1986 solid body Les Paul copy, man that one sounds good, twin hum buckers give an awesome sound.

    Anyone, any pics of your treasures? I will add a pic when I get home.

    Does air guitar count?

    I actually used to use an old walking stick. The crook handle would 'hook' into my pocket.

    Quote: I have a number and a number of amps

    Two Fender strats, two Gibson Les Pauls and a couple of acoustics.

    They are all on the walls in the basement, with the exception of an Epiphone Les Paul that I keep in my office for when I am bored.

    My main amp is a Fender Bassbreaker and I have more pedals than I know how to deal with.

    My credit card wobbles every time I go near my local guitar store.

    If you wish to improve, or simply learn how to play any number of songs, this guy is my go to man: https://www.justinguitar.com/

    I am at the office at the moment, so this is the only one I can provide a picture for. (Edit: site won't allow me to upload it)
    I know what you mean about buying stuffs, Resist !!

    I will look at that web page when I get home, looks good, I mostly use you tube and Tab from Ultimate Guitar dot com.

    Be sure to add some pics laters :@)

    Sacrilege. One can never have enough guitars.

    I have promised myself that, once I can play Nothing Else Matters, using a looper and performing all the parts (as best as one can with a looper) I will buy myself a Fender Telecaster (yellow). It's not that hard a song but I haven't got round to doing so yet. (worked out the intro and the solo but not the middle bit)

    Great to have a goal

    i like to play first half of Pink Floyd's brain-damage then follow by Us and them then I play the start of In the flesh, and follow on with the first part of The Wall, that works for me !! Also learning shit loads more but I forget the chord progressions the next day lol

    I def need most of my stuff written down that's for sure

    Currently learning Pigs three different ones, inspired by going to see Roger Waters

    Then i go to sleep and dream I am this good:

    I hate the way good guitar players make it look so effortless.

    I only play about an hour a day, which is nowhere near enough to get good. I wish I had started when I was a kid. All those hours with so little to do!

    Guitar mad, but only as a listener. Also bass mad and drum mad. The more I think about it, generally mad!
  • Re: Guitar Mad People
    Oh for a Gretsch White Falcon or an original solid body late '50s Burns Bison, the cherry red one. Oh happy days.

    I have a drum kit too.

    I have thought about buying a bass, a Uke and mandolin, but I wouldn't want my wife to have to consult with a local divorce lawyer.

    She needs to join the band!

    I have a Cort electric acoustic and a lovely Peavey semi-acoustic, with a small Vox amp. Totally rubbish but I enjoy making a racket.

    I've recently been trying to get the hang of open E tuning, trying the Keith Richards sounds... Honky Tonk Women is a great tune.

    I have a ukulele. Does that count? It is bright orange, if that helps...

    I'd love to learn guitar, but don't have the time to practise properly. The uke is easier to get to a point where you can accompany a campfire song, I reckoned. I also have a didgeridoo, which I am getting reasonably good at - had the circular-breathing thing licked a while ago, and can now do some of the more complicated rhythmic sounds and barks, as well as the drone.

    I don't think I'd get a drum kit past SWMBO, but have asked for a cajon for my next birthday, so we'll see what happens
  • Re: Guitar Mad People
    I think a Yuke is permissible for this Fred

    My amp is a Peavey, I really like it, has a few extras on it, reverb, gain, valve sound and a EQ

    I have some earplugs.....
