      Hey imation what are your favorite styles and guitar players?

      I have also payed guitar for years.

      I have played in jazz bands, country bands and heavy metal; recently been getting into bluegrass music.

      Wow. Very nice. I could never play Bass, those strings just seemed to thick for me.

    I've played guitar for 35 years...OUCH...kind of wish I had just guessed instead of actually figuring it up....

    I took classical for awhile but mostly play acoustic sing along stuff now.

    I think playing the guitar and writing songs has saved my sanity many times.

    I used to be a guitar addict. Literally took my guitar with me everywhere I went. Unfortunately, I messed up my right index finger a few years ago in a work accident and that was the end of that.
    Maybe wasn't such a bad thing, though. If I were still playing, I wouldn't be able to focus on my other big love: IM.
    I do miss it though.

    I've been playing piano since '95, and have done a little professional songwriting. Also got my degree with a major in music. I can manage a few notes on a bass guitar, and I used to play flute, too.

    So I love music... but obviously it's not a great business to be in unless you can make it really fly with IM.

    I write lyrics and "sing".

    We were broken up for about 17 years, but we got back together through Facebook.

    If you want an idea of my lyrics or what I sound like, there are two songs in this thread...

    Rock on!

    "Ich bin en fuego!"

    Guitar, bass, and keyboards. Made my living at it for 15 years, and taught for 13 of those. Still play for fun today, and little by little acquired a nice project studio.

      I sing in the shower.

      Soap operas, mostly.


      But I do sing solo.

      Solo you can't hear me sometimes.

    I used to play the guitar and write songs. Haven't played in quite a few years, but have been thinking about taking it back up lately. I was never that good of a guitar player, but wrote some decent lyrics.

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

    Could've sworn there was one of these threads elsewhere. But anyway, I do rap/hip hop myself. Check me out here:

        I've been playing guitar and bass for a while, and "dabble" with a few other instruments. Went to audio engineering school back in 2002/2003... here's a couple songs I recorded from a band I was in at the time, shortly after learning bass. We used a drum machine for the first one, lol.

    I play guitar (just for pleasure). Electric and acoustic, and I usually finger-pick (i.e. no plectrum) on both in a sort of hybrid Travis-picking/claw-hammer style (similar to Mark Knopfler - hence my forum username ), unless I'm playing straight rhythm. Have played for about 9 years.

    I have 5 guitars (my two main electrics being a 1987 Gibson Les Paul in ebony, which I use for heavier stuff, and a customised Fender Stratocaster in sunburst with all single-coils, which I use for cleaner, chirpier stuff).

    Hoping to get a red MK signature strat, too, in the not-too-distant future, but there's more pressing stuff demanding of my money at the moment.

    And I have a couple of Irish tin whistles on order, too. Loves me some celtic music.
