    I've come to a point where I don't know what songs to learn anymore. I tend to flick through my iPod and use the guitar tabs app.

    Can you play "Through The Fire and Flames" on Guitar Hero III? That's the most important question.

    [QUOTE=ForestShadow;63622059]Why did you learn it? Just wanted a hobbie other than football and I'm a massive rock music fan

    Whats your favourite song to play? Plush - Stone Temple Pilots, the acoustic version.

    Who is your favourite guitarist? Between Santana and Hendrix

    Whats one thing most ppl dont know about guitars/being a guitarist?We don't all play to pick up girls and it takes time to learn.

    How many guitars do you have? (in total or atm) Got my Fender acoustic that I use the most, then my first electric guitar (a second hand Ibanez).

    Best aspect of playing the guitar? Learning a song fully and being able to play it the way you want.

    Worst aspect of playing the guitar? Fingers hurting from fingering... I mean playing too much. Hand hurts too with more complicated chords.

    See yourself with a carrer in it? teaching others maybe? Probably not a career, but I'm open to teaching definitely.

    Whyd you choose dodgy pirate btw? Pirates of the Caribbean? Was my old Xbox GT, and I like Pirate history and folklore!

    It takes time, patience and practise. Don't give up now.

    Marty Schwartz on YouTube helped me out a lot with picking, strumming and chords/tabs.

    Are you playing electric or acoustic?

    Best thing to do right now is learn the basic chords.

    I played in a talent show at school and that happened... the low E string. I kept playing. It was pretty embarrassing though as you can imagine.

    I haven't broken a leg yet, so I don't really know.

    Acoustic.

    Is electric more difficult?
