    Default I'm Not Worthy of this Purchase

    I've decided to try to learn to play guitar and today I bought this Alvarez guitar at a pawn shop for $130. It's so beautiful, it makes me cry. My first guitar and I'm going to fuck it up.

    Learning to play guitar is going to make your soft, lovely, manicured hands all blistered and callused, Yablo.

    I'm not sure this is true for all guitarists. I shook Gavin Rossdale's hand and it was smooth as silk.

    Or maybe he's not really playing his guitar?

    It's beautiful, Yabs. Are you gonna hug him and kiss him and call him George?

    Greg:

    Learn the chords for "Love Goes On" by the Go-Betweens. We can rock the preparty next year and play that song. With Stef. Afterwards we can eat pie and think about outer space.

    What song would you most like to learn to play, Yablo? I mean if you had to choose only one.

    By the way, guitars are even more beautiful when they're fucked up. It means you've played them and created with them. That's way cooler than a pristine guitar that sits in the corner. So don't be afraid to fuck it up. Also, be sure to practice windmills and rock star posturing.

    Your first guitar Yablo? That is a really nice guitar. Especially for $130 bucks.

    I just bought my girlfriend a guitar not to long ago. An acoustic Gretch for $175. I was happy with that buy.

    Oh, dont forget to post a video of you playing stairway the second you learn it!

    Playing guitar is one of the best things life has to offer. Once you get good. Hurry up and get good.

    I've gone through both. I started with Guitar, worked my way and became the GOD of Bass (at my school), then started looking into mixing.

    Will wine stain a guitar?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I've been trying to figure that out. I think my goal is to first learn to play "Learning the Game" by Buddy Holly. We'll see. Trying to teach an old dog some new tricks. I'm just hoping right now to figure out how to play two chords.

    Greg, I want you to do a complete Buddy Holly cover. Vocals, grooving, everything. You can even get glasses. Then you can become the next Youtube sensation.

    Pull back. Two chords. That's all I'm trying to accomplish right now. I was going to buy a chord book for beginners today, but I was too late getting to the music store and it had closed.

    It's all about Emaj and Amin and Emin and Gmaj and Cmaj when you first start out. Luckily there's a few songs that you can play with those 5 chords.

    GO SEYMOUR GO!!!!!

    EDIT: You're my hero, Yablo. You should go for it. I taught myself how to play the piano in my mid-twenties and all I started with was chords. It's never too late yo.

    at the risk of being accused (again) of trying to be yablo..

    I have a guitar that I don't know how to play. well I mean I can pick out Ode to Joy but changes? ha. no pain, no pain. good luck. remember Joni Mitchell can't play a C chord either.



    edit: in other words I fail.
