    GuYs..!! what do u think is ur biggest Regret in the context of learning or playing GUITAR!!!

    lets share this what makes every1 fret and yowl about..what u should have done or shouldnt have done in ur guitaring??????

    :::::> my regret is that i started learning guitar way way way too late...and now im too bz wid other things also...i shud've ideally started in my schooling age or say abt 15-16 yrs. old...i feel at that age kids have more grasping power and by the time they cross their 20s..they have a gud expertise and become pros!!...unfortunately this couldnt materialize wid me :annoyed:

    ur turn guys! :p:

    hey vini, its the same thing with me, but i want to say one thing.
    Its the way u look at it, (i,e glass as half full or half empty)
    even though we have taken up guitar too late there is a reason for that and atleast we are makin an effort to learn guitar even at 20 and not just sittin and say "damm it i shld have done it when i was 14-15, now i cant/wont do it"
    Get up ur a^ss and work hard nothin is impossible

    Started some 3 yrs back...... Played it with intrest for first 3 months...... then totally left it..... after some 2yrs played it properly for another year........ Now agai9n losing intrest..... Atleast the time coz... when i get back from work its 10 and i leave at 8 in morning.....

    Guess i shouldn't have give those breaks ..... And bought a desent guitar ...... I started with my frnds guitar..... then borrowed guitars from 2 more ppl till they took it back...... Even now i have a borrowed guitar......

    Money was a great regret...... the rich buggers who wanted to show off and not learn had guitars ... I couldnt afford one.......

    I should have consulted someone while learning..... i guess i would have been much better..
    Another regret no access to personal system where i could learn things.......

    I literally fought with my parents for taking classses back in India... started picking up but then had to move to US for my masters....Damn just left my old guitar in India then never touched, practised guitar for two years. Then later on I saw IGT online which rekindled my interest in guitar. Late to start (in late teens) and then left it 2 years...Big Big mistake....i'll regret my whole life....

    No money when I had interest....now have the money but no time....I dont know when I could justify myself with guitar playing. I share the same story of any guy from middle class family.

    Major respect to you sir. I think the guitar is a waste of time too. I wanted to learn how to play sitar.

    ^^heh..now was that a sarcastic comment?

    well i still love playin guitar though..
    but ahh..the sax and violin tone is just awesome.
    i checked out steve smith(jazz drummer) and was completely blown away.
    so fluid and so trippy.
    awesome stuff.
