    It sure has, it has helped me get intouch with myself and made me a better person overall. Also it gave me a purpose in life.

    it makes me frustrated because i have no one to jam with
  3. now that i think about it, ever since i started playing guitar i have changed. a change for the better that is.
  4. I'd say yes. Not so much in my actual personality, but the way I look at music is much different. I've also come up with some life-changing perspectives while tripping and playing the guitar, so ya.

    I have been into music and art for sixteen years (I was four at the time I started), and nothing has seemed to loosen me up and open me to creativity but the guitar. Because so many great musicians have played the guitar, I have learned from what they have done. This has given me ideas both musically and artistically (painting, drawing, ect.). I would not say that the guitar is the only factor that has helped change my outlook, but it is one of the most important.

    I agree with the statement "it gave me a purpose in life".... I have also noticed that I am able to be happy, no matter what, since I started playing seriously.

    If I'm stuck somewhere without a guitar for awhile I get real edgy.

    Playing guitar really takes me out of depression... I started doing it two or three years ago when everyone kept wanting to make me see a psychologist and I was fishing all the time, but I'm a vegetarian now...

    I play guitar. A beginner with a teacher and a boyfriend who motivates me. People say I have my own style. My father plays electric guitar, he was in a band at the age of 14. My grandmother used to take lessons with him until she got arthritis in her hand. It runs in the family, I see it everywhere.

    I don't know exactly what takes to me to the guitar. I personally think its healthy to have a musical instrument in your hobbies. A stress reliever can be the case. Replacing marijuana. The flexibility and soul-touching ability of the instrument is phenomonal. America's culture rests on this simple thing.

    I get addicted to the guitar. I feel connected and internally satisfied when I play. And its extra sweet to please others with the music. To pass and exchange music, to teach music. To learn music. Its not my life though. I guess because I'm not serious enough with it or I'm just with other important things.

    Me too... I start to feel sad if I go a few hours without playing.
