    Some pretty good feedback on my recent guitar riff idea. Even if the most recent one is something a former guitar teacher said of my approach to the guitar. Not that I'm offended, it's brought back that memory. 😂🤣

    How are you feeling?

    Pissed off. :mad: Really 🤬kin' pissed off. Gordon Ramsay levels of pissed off... The more people that I interact with, the more I realise that: most people are 🤬ts. Exceptions being, of course: my mother, the consultant surgeons that over saw both operations on my legs in my early teens and...

    Other people's comments that floor you

    Earlier this year I had my guitar playing skills compared to this legendary guitarist... twice! Even though I don't consider myself as being anywhere near Eddie's level as a guitarist. But then it generally floors me to get positive feedback and comments about my guitar playing. Mainly because...

    How are you feeling?

    Quite nervous and a wee bit intimidated about getting back into taking guitar lessons again. It's been 17 years since I last had a lesson. And my previous experiences with getting taught left me feel more frustrated and disillusioned than happy. Anyway, I've signed for monthly online guitar...

    Here's a couple more riff ideas that I came up with yesterday, but recorded today. Just variation on this melody and guitar riff that I came up with earlier this year.

    How are you feeling?

    Well... things don't seem to be getting any better. That's nearly month now. I'm at my wit's end with everything that's going on. My advice falls on deaf ears, as it always does. But then I don't know how yer supposed to help someone who refuses to help themselves. I also don't see the point in...

    How are you feeling?

    Depressed and really frustrated. Struggling to find the motivation to keep going. Wishing my life had turned out differently in many ways. Due to my mum's recent health issues, I've been completely neglecting myself, as far as my own well-being goes, just to make sure she's ok. And I'm...

    First my guitar, and now my audio interface goes and dies on me. 😟 So, I go back and buy an interface I'd bought and used previously from Amazon: the Behringer UMC404HD audio interface I got it the other day, arriving at the weekend there. Ah unbox it, getting hooked up to my computer, and...

    Really mad right now... Got my recording setup 99% done and it's currently useable. Ah got and plug my electric guitar in and find the input jack is knackered. Not keeping a signal, it keeps cutting out. 😔😡🤬

    How are you feeling?

    I don't know how am feeling... apprehensive? Nervous? Excited? Struggling with imposter syndrome a bit as far my musical abilities goes. In that I'm not as technically gifted as my guitar playing abilities make me out to be. On a positive note, my mum seems to be doing a lot better since that...
