Couldn’t find one so starting one. Please merge if there is.
So, recently I’ve decided to teach myself. I come from a fairly musical family. Father, brother and sister all play and have/are performing live on and off. For some reason it never stuck with me growing up. Always had my head in books and getting up to certain forms of no good (usually with people who were budding musos). I feel like I’ve got a bit of flair for it. Strumming technique comes fairly naturally. I’m at the stage of getting more familiar with barre chords which seems to be going alright. I suppose I’m wondering what songs people remember that made them feel like they took another step in proficiency. I’m not really at the point of mastering arpreggio yet or shredding or anything like that. Yes, I know Ramones do almost everything in barre chords and I like Ramones.
Also, what guitars do people own? What’s your favorite to play at the moment? I have an EJ-200 and an Epiphone SG. Want to get a Strat and a Tele. And a Les Paul. Probably only going to go with the lower shelf stuff as I can’t see myself needing anything over $1200. But, who knows… I’ve got an iRig which drives the family crazy because I tune out and can’t hear them. Ironically, it hasn’t solved the problem of being noisy and annoying people. I guess the people next door don’t know how lucky they are.
