I play bass and drums. I was in a couple bands in high school: .

  • KPPX(the call letters of the radio station in the movie Airheads) on drums,
  • Greeting Card Ninjas on bass,
  • and a little acoustic project we called "String Beans"( the other two guys were mexican, and I often was mistaken for a Vato in school....hence the name Beans) on acoustic bass
Those were the days. Shotgunning Natural Ice then playing a 2 hour show where we played the same 5 songs over and over again.

Keep up the practicing. I found some "Backing Tracks" on the internet. It's like Karaoke for your guitar! If you don't have a band to play with, then try out your favorite songs with one of those. Google backing tracks guitar.

I've been playing a bit more after finding them, but soon hopefully I'll be expanding my repertoire once the carpet is laid and I got some free time again.

I've been playing on and off (mostly off) for the last 10-12 years. I currently have 5 Fenders...


Cheap Fender acoustic 6 string and 12 string (12 string never gets played, it was part of a package deal for another guitar)

American Telecaster with the bridge pickup replaced with a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails. This is my primary guitar, and the one I'm the most comfortable playing.

Crafted In Japan 72 Thinline Reissue from like '98. This one has a thicker neck and I haven't played it in at least 3 years. In fact, I just dropped it off this past weekend to be rewired since it got messed up when I moved (I was repairing it myself and it got damaged in the shuffle of the move).

American Stratocaster. Nothing much to say about this one, other than it's neck is even thinner than the American Tele

Fender Prosonic amp

If you're looking for a fun book/cd to play along with, look for John Gnapes' "Blues You Can Use"...

Yep, I've been acoustic guitar playing since early high school and love it. I haven't been playing as much recently (new baby, etc) but I'm trying to get back into it. Gonna start playing in our church soonish, so that should help!

I already have a guitar (belongs to my wife) and I plan on taking lessons some time in the future but any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.


911tabs.com is a good website for guitar tab...

Do you have something wrong with your brain, perhaps?

YouTube - Eddie Adcock plays banjo during brain surgery.

Obviously they decided to do brain surgery the moment he said he liked the banjo!

I need to get back into playing. My spare time seems to go to other hobbies first. I need less hobbies and then I need money so I can buy an Ibanez ES...
