Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players
I've owned one or two guitars for most of my life, but never really learned to play. Last Christmas my wife bought me the Gibson "Learn and Master Guitar" DVD lessons and I've been working on trying to learn to really play since the first of the year.
I enjoy lots of different types of music and will play just about anything I can find that fits my current skill level. That runs the gamut from War Pigs (mostly got it all down but the solo), to Cumbersome (7 Mary Three), to Knocking on Heaven's Door (Dylan style vs GNR) and a few other tunes.
My go-to guitar at present is my recently aquired Gibson Les Paul Studio (Silverburst w/Ebony fretboard and coil taps). Second is my Washburn acoustic.
I also have a Fender AmStd Strat (had for a decade+, but never fell in love with), and a couple of inexpensive electrics aquired over the years. I hang on to the Strat thinking some day I'll be skilled enough to make it sing the blues, but for now the Les Paul has my full attention.
