you think too much about negative things,relax lang bro....playing music is supposed to be fun.

You should be thankful that you have a talent like playing the guitar....don't treat it like a curse

Playing guitar isolates me from the rest of the world. Even if people are moving and walking around I just plug in my amp, roll-up the volume and Im suddenly in my OWN space and time. You can't even talk to me while Im lost in this place...

Although I've never done it professionally, but it just gives me a satisfying feeling that you can't get from alcohol, drugs or chicks :)

It's an expensive hobby though but it's all worth it...

When you dream, your mind comes up with anxieties. Maybe wanting something comes with a certain level of responsibility.

But then again this thread is one from those times that I have so much goin on in my mind.

Tagal na po nitong thread ah, wala pa ako  :-)

about the hardships of being a musician, all i can say is nothing beats being able to fulfill your musical purpose. being in a Christian band, i usually don't get paid for playing but after every single "gig," knowing that our band led the people in worshipping God and having a great time playing as well, it completely gives sense to all my sacrifices (lost time practicing, traffic, having to bring a 39 pound, 41" x 18" pedalboard and a guitar, early call times, etc.) :)

Anyway agree po ako dito sa sinabi ni sir poundcake last year, lumalaki na masels ko sa kakadala ng gears sa church pero non-stop pa rin kasi masaya ako sa pag tugtog ng gitara at may sense nga po ang mga sakripisyo na 'to. And I dont think of it as a job, hindi po ako pilit sa ginagawa ko, i love what i do, i love to play guitar lalo na for GOD's glory.  :-D peace

a moment with a (testing, playing, composing, tweaking, etc.) guitar is already priceless. what more if you're playing on stage? i think you should think about what's "on" at the moment rather than thinking too much on what and where it will bring you to. it's not about the hardships and [gooey brown stuff], but it's all about the experience and the things you're going through that count and make you a guitarist.

every situation we are in involves responsibilities, its just a matter of how you deal with them..if what you're dealing with is kind of complicated, simplify it...or take a break! then get back to it some time.


How we respond kung naiipit tayo defines who we are...

I'm just thankful that I know how to play the guitar because, as what every one said, relieves me of the stresses of everyday life. Kaya nakikita mo mga gitarista kahit anong hirap at kahit anong gastos sa gamit sige pa rin.

It's like therapy for us. It's like women, pero shopping nga lang ang therapy nila.

Take it easy bro

Extra-ordinary- kc bihra lang sa lahat ng tao ang mabigyan ng ganitong kapangyarihan   :-D

Try playing along with backing tracks and record your work. Somehow you'll realize you haven't perfected the passages yet, or it sounded incomplete so you can add in fillers. Helps with the boredom and the feeling of weariness. This is what Im trying to do lately...

Hey guys, sine most of yous got more experiences. Don't you think a good guitarist is a great man. I mean, its not only the time you spend practising. It is also the time of your life. How about the other opportunities you missed just to play and practise. How about the money you spend on your gear instead of being fun and hang ouit with your friends and spend some money doing that. How about ur frustrations and doubts if you can succeed and really become a better guitarist and if what your doing is right. How many of you find a difficulty in anything. Isn't it enough that you study your chords and scales. What are we missing. Should we listen to toe right kinds of music? Is there something within us that we cant overcome. How should we know if all of these will lead us to something we dont like. Dont you feel weird when choosing to play and practice rather than studying or doing something "at the right time". I mean, we all got tons of problems and frustrations other than our musicianship. How about the demands of being able to play gigs through sleepless and never ending nights just to take chances. How about the hardships of transportation when jamming every week. How about each and every hassle life may bring us?

Whatcha Think?

and How about that.........being a musician has its purpose inteded for him.... 8-)
