YOU NEVER WORE A REAL COWBOY HAT OR PLAYED A GUITAR IN YOUR LIFE!
What the heck is going on here. This is a friendly forum and certainly no need for Nastiness.
6-Bender, Is there any need for this at all ?
Twostratsfornow, I appreciate your sarcastic reply, good man.
Thanks for sharing your journey and your goal. I wish you success!I’ve been playing the guitar on and off since I was 13. It was intensive for those first few years and then a background hobby up until the last year and a half where the pandemic pushed me back into exploring the instrument and modification. I was kinda unlucky at high school that I never struck a kinship with a group of musicians and so never really got to explore my music in a group. I’m even further isolated now with raising two young children and commuting in and out of the city for work.
I have one goal really set for myself, without a specific timeline, to start writing music. In a way I want to be able to collaborate with myself and explore my creativity by layering and building tracks. I believe my technique and craft will grow alongside and I’ll push myself to develop in areas once I realise where the problems are!
It’s been almost a year! The first set of 30 are ready for me to pick up Monday. View attachment 239748 I may take them to be cut or engraved with the trade name before letting any go…

I am also most of the way through Truefire’s “Street Theory for Guitarists”.
Anyone else still chipping away at goals?
We’re similar. Glad you’re enjoying your journey!My personal Journey is I finally picked up a guitar on my 60th Birthday. Next week I turn 63. I just get tickled every time I learn a new riff. No goals, just have fun. Last week, Stephen Colbert had James Taylor sitting in with the band. James admitted he still does not know how to read music. Sometimes I just have the most fun just noodling around. I wonder if that's how James did it.
Thanks!You resurrecting the thread lead me to re-read my original post...I haven't made a lot of direct progress, but I got to do music for a live play, which was a weird and fun project, and maybe in a roundabout way is getting me toward what I envision doing someday.
Glad you're making progress on your vibrato mod, amigo.
