I thought it was a sweet deal but don’t know too much about guitars yet so it’s possible I was overcharged although I have no complaints whatsoever. She’s beautiful! 1 person likes this April 29, 2018 at 11:05 pm #154966 supraja vadlamaniParticipant @dominik, that’s a pretty cool story 😀 1 person likes this April 29, 2018 at 11:07 pm #154968 supraja vadlamaniParticipant @Ids, wow those are two incredible outros. Any chance you have a recording for sidewinder that you don’t mind sharing? That spanish guitar always hits the sweet spot 0 likes April 29, 2018 at 11:09 pm #154970 supraja vadlamaniParticipant @Sayonil, it’s funny you say that because I grew up with guitars all around me and never once took the opportunity to learn it. The idea of learning it always seemed impenetrable to me until last year, when there was just this shift in thinking that I could actually learn it. 1 person likes this April 29, 2018 at 11:12 pm #154973 supraja vadlamaniParticipant @Ed, wow – that’s quite the story. Not just a story, but I’d like to call that a love affair with all of your guitars. Thank you for sharing that with us 🙂 0 likes April 29, 2018 at 11:15 pm #154975 supraja vadlamaniParticipant @Noah, thank you for sharing that! That’s a very meaningful story 🙂 0 likes April 29, 2018 at 11:31 pm #154987 Daniel BernardParticipant I got a 120$ CAD guitar from a local music store for my 12th or 13th birthday. I despise that guitar haha I actually smashed it last month just to know what it feels like 😛 It was a Behringer Strat. If you got a guitar thats playable, an amp and a stand for 140$ I think you really found a great deal! If it’s a clean amp you can always buy a cheap distortion pedal! 🙂 1 person likes this April 30, 2018 at 2:03 am #155134 Ben ThorpeParticipant birthday present m8 1 person likes this April 30, 2018 at 2:06 am #155140 Ids SchiereParticipant @supraya It’s been a while since I played them so I would kinda have to relearn them tbh. 1 person likes this April 30, 2018 at 6:43 am #155378 Calvin PhillipsParticipant Well you tend to wear in your first guitar. So I didn’t want to throw a bunch of cash at something i wasnt sure I’d really enjoy. Once I started playing every day 2-3 hours at a time, I was ready. The REvenger was only 800 I think, the guitar sounds so much more. I still beat up that guitar tho, needed to go in for repairs a couple times lol. I take much better care of it now. 1 person likes this April 30, 2018 at 12:08 pm #155386 Sayonil MitraParticipant @supraja….at least we are glad that that we, everyone picked up guitar and gathered in this forum. Let us know if you create some riff 1 person likes this April 30, 2018 at 12:13 pm #155388 Sayonil MitraParticipant saw your first one @supraja…..could not comment there so saying it here. It was clean playing. Liked it. keep on posting more stuff 1 person likes this April 30, 2018 at 12:39 pm #155393 supraja vadlamaniParticipant @daniel, haha I guess we both got decent deals then (even if you did end up smashing your guitar!) 0 likes April 30, 2018 at 12:41 pm #155394 supraja vadlamaniParticipant @calvin, that’s fair. I wasn’t sure how well I’d fare at it either, hence the second-hand craigslist guitar! 0 likes April 30, 2018 at 12:48 pm #155395 supraja vadlamaniParticipant @Sayonil, thanks so much man! I wonder why you were unable to comment on the video itself, but thanks for letting me know 🙂 0 likes Author Posts Viewing 15 posts - 16 through 30 (of 30 total) ← 1 2 You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
