What was your Guitar Ignition?

:D Hi Tom thats how we used to do it back in the day !

play the record then lift the needle & replay it until you got it. We used to hang around guitar shops so we could hear the guys trying out gear & if they played something that was more "right" than you had it you could then nick it !!  :D

Tape machines made life a bit easier.  :wink:

For you young`ns.......When people my age started playing the music industry hadn`t worked out yet that we all wanted to play Johnny`B`goode so they wouldn`t release the songs we actually wanted to play because of copy write law. So we all had to learn old blues based hymns & such.  :roll:

You lot with your Tab dont no your born !!  :wink:

 :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:


I know where your coming from Jt! Has he seen you play since school?

Support your local underdog!!

My father would not repeat not have anything to do with my interest in electric guitars what so ever! If I had asked for one for a birthday or xmas I would have run a risk of not getting anything at all! So I just played this old one my Grandad gave me, which was called a Cello guitar. It was acoustic and was used in dance bands in the 20's and before! I still have it but it's in a right state! Then I bought my electric and amp. My father used to burst into my room, even though i had the amp on as low as it would go, which wasn't loud and turn it off!
But I persevered!  :lol:

:D Had the same problem !

My dad was cool about me wanting to Rock`n`Roll but i had no money so i had to get everything on HP. My dad would sign for the stuff so i could have it BUT i could never practice in the house as it was to loud !!

Fortunatly i lived just up the road from a rehearsal studio. So i could wail there when i could afford it !

 :D  8)

Forgot to say as i got older Rush became another ignition point for me. I still love `em even to this day.

Although my dad doesnt like much rock music, he seems quite supportive and buys me gear for my birthdays if I do some chores for him and save up allowance to pay for half or whatever.. he just makes me close my window when I'm playing and says not to play after 9pm  :P

If only he understood tone, then he wouldnt question me wanting to get a Laney for rock/metal when clearly a Fender isnt suitable for metal :lol:

I used to be able to play the tapping part of eruption pretty much bang on. i've not tried for years as I stopped the tapping habit, but can still do it now and again. It became uncool! Well some said it was but i think it still is! (cool i mean!)

I can play a few Oasis songs as they go down well at house partys, well they used to anayway!  :lol:


Aye I can play most of eruption, but it doesn't really sound like eddie (apart from the tapping bit). I think I can play the riff to wonderwall too...  :?

Empathy! Great stuff Jt!  :lol: I did try the shed at one point with my mate who used his dads Hofner President Bass, but that bore the wrath of my Dad via the pissed of neighbours!

Rush is something i need to get more of! Based on what I've heard so far they are incredible!

You lot with your Tab dont no your born !!  :wink:

 :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:


hahah the majority of tabs on the internet seem to be cr@p anyway, I try to work out as much as I can with my ears but sometimes I just cant find the right note so use tabs for a bit of guidance. The other guy in the band I'm in relys on tabs for EVERYTHING. I had to work out and tab out the rhythm guitar bits for Mr Brownstone for him because he found it too hard   :roll:


Well that's how i do it too Tom and it's paying off for you as we have heard your clips!

I've got no idea what mine was!  I started playing when I was seven or eight years old.  I've just always wanted to play guitar!


7 or 8! You must be good then!  8)


I'm 31 now, and not as good as you'd think actually  :(

I'm more of a rhythm player than lead, and in that area I reckon I can hold my own against most people.  I'm really enjoying being Angus in YC/DC as it's forcing my lead playing to catch up!
