    well...this question just struck me like a hammer one day....
    have i been too late in learning the guitar...
    i mean ..i see a lot of ppl on this forum have been playin since years...
    so i just wanted to ask all the pros here the answer to my query..
    is there something i might never gain even with loads n loads of practise.???

    this guitaring bug got to me when i saw the guitarist of the naval band produce monstorous applause and fame by just playing 'hotel california'.....
    i used to sing prior to this (i still do.)...i had just turned 17 then....
    i started some exactly 10 months ago....my parents refused to buy a guitar ..or even send me to a teacher..(fer i was preparing fer JEE)...
    so i have been learning frm the internet...with borrowed guitars ....
    there come blank periods during which i dont have a guitar..but i manage somehow...
    i took to rock..n death metal lately...due to this guitaring thing only...cuz fer ppl of jaipur ..these do not exist....
    so thats my story...in short i assume...
    plz do tell me what age u all started playin..or how long u been playin...n does it matter if i started late (other than the fact that i will be 20 by the time i really become a great guitarist..rather than 16 or 17)...

    hey man taxyse,ur story is exactly like me. :beer:
    i started at 16.been prep. for engg exams but i have an accoustic guitar.turned towards rock/metal due to guitar.people in my town think im an alien playin alien music.hey hey.
    been playin for 15 months.
    as to ur questions-there isnt anything tht u would not gain even by loads n loads of practice.u can leave behind :nw: satch i u want to!! :p: :p:
    n ur r never late wenever u take up the guitar.wat matters is tht how u play it after starting it.(this one's frm ananth's post)

    dude..age doesnt matter if u put in the necessary..
    if im not mistaken holdsworth started playin when he was in his 20s.

    and lol@ppl applausin the guitarist for the hotel california solo...aactually the solo is pretty cool and would have been pretty cool..if it wasnt covered by every other rock band.

    naah...i ****ed up my studies....tell u what....my teachers said until last year..i would make into top 50.....and then...all due to some 'bizzare' incidents (some personal...some not)...i got in a 'bad state'...dint enjoy studies...left my texts.....used to do just one thing...practise ptactise and practise on my guitar.....
    uh well...i dont know whats gonna happen now.....but i still dont feel like doin nethin....except u know what......n the worst part is....it has now been 2 months since i played a 6 string....man i feel like i am chokin....i pick up the mopper and try n move my fingers up and down as fast as possible........(ew...i must sound stupid.).........
