I have been in a bit of a lull as of late, and picking up guitar helped make time feel a bit better
Figure I'd ask if anyone here is into it, I am no professional, but I do like spending time stringing strings

Sure thing I'm into it, do you play on acoustic or electric, if what is your gear/effects/amp ?
I'd recommend Smashing Pumpkins, Fountains of Wayne as some inspirations.

I am working with a Classical guitar. It has a different name here and it's commonly said that if you know how to master it using a regular acoustic/electric guitar would be fairly easy.
Don't know how much of that is true but to be honest, electric guitars just seem a pain to set up.
>what is your gear/effects/amp ?
I use Rocksmith lul, hope that doesn't come off as an insult.
>I'd recommend Smashing Pumpkins, Fountains of Wayne as some inspirations.
I could check it out, sure

Albeit sometimes I feel like I need to learn something more. So far I already worked with pentatonic scales, have improved my tremolo picking, and barre chords are slowly getting better.
Chords are becoming more and more easy to remember, but I still feel that I can't really arrange something with what I know besides… uh… how do you call it when you just play one string on a fret? Chords are multiple strings, there's gotta be a term for that.

Anyhow, I just gotta keep practising, but I feel like I am not finding anything as of late.

I bought an acoustic for my birthday last month!
I've used my sister's guitar for a bit before that, but playing a right-handed guitar as a natural lefty was a very awkward experience.
Overall it's pretty fun so far. I'm improving much faster than I expected and every new little thing I learn or figure out feels really good.
I hope I can get good enough to start writing stuff on my own one day, but I still have a very long way to go.


I’ve been playing bass guitar. I have an audio interface and headphones and I just play to my heart’s content. I’ve mainly been playing classic rock and vocaloid songs. I used to be very serious about music when I was younger, but stopped. I’ve found that this instrument has been really good for my mental health and I’ve been sleeping more soundly? Not sure why but a nice unexpected benefit!

Playing guitar has been oddly therapeutic to me.
I think the main reason is because you can see/notice the result of your practise more easily. Drawing sometimes feels stressful because you could spend a good amount of time and it's not as inmediate. I guess that's why it's not my main hobby really despite trying to get into it once a while ago


I just started learning recently, and I'm surprised at how well it's going! I always had these intense overwhelming ideas about what a difficult journey it would be to play my first song on guitar, and it kept me from getting started. But really good punk rock songs can actually be really simple to play and I didn't realize, and now I'm a significant part of the way to competency on a three chord (part of a) song after less than 24 hours of cumulative practice. (I'm practicing Blitzkrieg Bop by the Ramones.) My speed increased in just the last couple hours of practice and I learned to strum way faster.

I'm really happy I decided to give it a shot. I'm sure I'll hit a slump in my practice eventually that'll take some time to progress past, but where I've gone so far makes me really excited to see where I'll be in a few months. :33

Full disclosure, I had some help getting started like with the finger placement and various advice, but I'm mostly practicing on my own at this point. It helps having a friend or partner who plays and can get you started.


That's wonderful to hear. The Ramones' catalogue is ridiculously easy to learn so it's a good starting point.
Personally I've been going around folk music as of late. Things like Simon and Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake. I quite like practicing this, but i feel I don't know many folk musicians to take inspiration from besides those

I've been playing guitar for around 2 years now, I wouldn't say I'm especially great at it, my strings still buzz due to bad fret placement and I can't pick too well, but I'd say I'm pretty alright when it comes to chord shapes and strumming in rhythm consistently. I mostly like doing Alt and J-rock, those are always really fun songs to get the rhythm and chords down on.
It's a very relaxing instrument for me and I often find myself pulling it out to play a song or just noodle around on some strings for a bit since I keep it next to my desk. I'm really just happy to have it at all since I've liked guitars for a long time but was never able to get one.
I do wish I were better at playing by ear though, I'm nearly tone deaf when it comes to figuring out how to play something myself.


The thing is, how you define someone as "good in guitar"? There are so many ways to play it, and so much of the music in the market is actually somewhat simple once you get down to it

I love my guitar, although I started out playing music with an ukulele.
Got me some really good friends in highschool thanks to it and I'm very grateful for the memories it helped me make. I don't play nearly as much as I used to but I still keep the same guitar it with me and I practice from time to time, I can't imagine myself buying a new one.
It's very exciting for me to hear that people are still picking up the instrument, I hope anyone new has as much fun with it as I did if not more!

>I use Rocksmith lul, hope that doesn't come off as an insult.
It's perfectly fine, it probably has way more accurate tabs than some tablature books, it has a mod community so you can also add additional songs which are not available through DLC and you can experiment with a variety of sounds without spending money on effect pedals and amps. I'm only familiar with the 2014 edition, I have no idea how different the new one is. I'd say Rocksmith is very good for a casual player.
>how do you call it when you just play one string on a fret?
Playing single notes?

Might sound a bit like a cop-out answer but I'd say that people are good guitarists if they can play the music they want to play.

I suppose that I don't consider myself good largely because I can't play some of the things I want to play since I don't match up to my own personal goals, that said though I was thinking about your post while practicing and found myself feeling happier about where I was so thank you for that.

What are your current goals by the way sushi?
A long term goal of mine is to learn Bistro Fada


>long term
What's your current skill? You could probably remember yourself the whole melody within a week by breaking it down into smaller sets of phrases and working on just one of those a day.

How do you determine certain skill levels?
>You could probably remember yourself the whole melody within a week by breaking it down into smaller sets of phrases and working on just one of those a day.
That's actually a fairly decent idea, it's just that even tiny bits are fairly difficult for me.
This song goes a lot through the fretboard and strings, and it doesn't feel like you're working with any scales whatsoever at certain points. You most certainly do but since it changes hand position so constantly it's not quite easy

Dear lord, this guitar is so cheap, the little circles that are common in guitars for guidance were made out of paper that I think my sister glued to the fretboard many years ago.
I was asking to myself "Why the fuck? Where's the 7th fret?"


I have nothing to play
Pls give recs


Waiting for October - Polaris
Sink to The Bottom - Fountains of Wayne


Aqua from the ARIA OST


>skill level
Personally I think it's about how much you're physically capable of combined with how much a mind you have to learn/make musical choices.
If you haven't heard this type of advice already, practice the piece at as slow a tempo as you can stand, and if you can, try and memorize the melody to the point of being able to hum phrases from it accurately with all the little fills and such.
It's jazz, so perhaps the melody is better analyzed by how it relates to the comp chords.
