New Here [21 Nov 2006|04:31am]

Hey everyone!

My name is Amber I'm 18 and live around Buffalo NY.
I've been playing guitar for almost 5 years now, I'm also pretty decent on drums and just started learning bass.
I took lessons for a year on guitar but I never really practiced that much.

Anyway, I don't really know what else to say except
I started an acoustic project a little while ago,
but at the time I was also playing in a ska band and didn't get a chance to write for it very much.
I've just recently started it up again and writing.

So if anyone is interested please give it a listen:


The recording quality isn't the greatest but meh oh well.

If anyone wants to talk feel free to add me on here,
talking to new people is always a good time. :D

hello everyone. i need your help.

i am planning on taking (hopefully) a beginners guitar class this fall and i need an acoustic guitar. i would like to stay under $250 since thats about all i can afford right now, and i would like a beginners acoustic guitar that will also be something great to play on later when i can play well. hmm....i dont know if thats too much to ask for. but anyway, heres the site of the place i will be getting my guitar from : http://www.guitarcenter.com/shop/guitar/navigation?N=100005+326250&page=1
you can narrow down the choices by price on the left of the screen. im not sure what to look at to determine whats good and whats not...my friend told me though that i need it to be cutaway or its going to be hard to play...i dont know...

advice please?

Does anybody have interesting bass parts that really excercise the fingers? I need to become more comfortable moving about the frets. Thanks.

I need ideas of good songs to sing! [06 Nov 2004|06:48pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Hey everyone! I have a gig coming up next week and I need 1- 4 good cover songs to perform. As far as style and genre goes I'm going along the lines of artists like Alanis Morissette, Sheryl Crow, Michelle Branch, Meredith Brooks, etc. You know, like acoustic/rock kinda stuff. Does anyone have any suggestions of songs or artists? I play guitar and I'm an alto/mezzo soprano as far as range goes. Although, I'm pretty sure I can probably transpose something to another key if needed. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated because right now I'm not coming up with anything too hot on my own.

Thanks!! :-)

[ mood | amused ]

Hey I'm new to this commumity and I'd like to introduce myself! My name is Amy and I'm 19 years old from Southern California. I took up guitar when I was eleven, but I didn't stick with it for long. Then about a month ago I decided to start learning it all over and now I love it and would NEVER quit again! My favorite song I can actually play so far is "First Cut Is The Deepest" by Sheryl Crow. I welcome any good tips for beginners that you all may have! I play a pretty good Harmony Acoustic so far, but I am eagerly waiting to buy a new guitar!!!

Hi, I just joined... [01 Aug 2004|06:27pm]

I live in southern England and I play guitar!

I've been playing acoustic guitar for about, ooh, seven or eight years now. I've never had lessons, but I think (though I say it myself) I'm not too bad. I'm considering getting some tuition, though, becaus eI just can't master barre chords!

I used to have an ancient nylon-strung jumbo classical guitar that was my uncle's. It has an incredibly wide fingerboard and was so old it pre-dated the current standard spacing for the machine heads (which caused trouble when I needed to get it fixed)! But for my last birthday, almost three months ago, my fantastic boyfriend bought me a new guitar! It's a steel-strung dreadnought-shape acoustic, with a nice manageable narrow fingerboard. It's made by J&D Brothers, who seem to be based in China or somewhere. It looks gorgeous - it's got a buttermilk-yellow top, and the sides and back are the same colour, rather than being darker as with most guitars. There's a nice brown-with-sparkly-flashes scratchplate, and an attractively decorated rosette. Ooooh, it's lovely! It wasn't the highest-priced guitar I tried, but it just sounded so delicious I had to have it.

Said boyfriend just bought himself a new acoustic this past weekend. He went for a Canadian Art & Lutherie dreadnought shape, with a wonderful satin finish. They're made out of Canadian fallen trees, so they're all eco-friendly and stuff. It looks and sounds very special - but I think I like mine better still :)

As for the music I play, it spans various genres. For example, I have just recently got myself obsessed with the song 'The Weakness In Me' which was originally sung by Joan Armatrading. However, I heard Melissa Etheridge cover it when she played in London the other week, and fell for it like anything. So I've nearly cracked that. I play lots of folk music - often Irish stuff - and weird songs from all sorts of artists. I confess to writing the odd filk, as the main venue for my performances is at live roleplaying games of various sorts - characters who play music always have something to do with their hands and a way to get people interested, and *actually playing the music* sometimes garners extra points for coolness value! :)

So, pleased to meet you all. What do you guys do?
