I have an old Acoustic guitar that has almost never been played because nobody plays guitar.

Eh.

I have a Jasmine Acoustic, I believe. I don't play it all that much, though.

Today I get my new guitar. We couldnt get it yesterday because it was too late and they had already shut off the computers. I'm gonna have to trade in my VooDoo SG to get it, but whatever.

I have a crappy Paul Stanley's Silvertone Apocalypse Special. "Special" is commonly used instead of "mentally retarded". I find this fitting, I hate my guitar.

One of my friends (whom I haven't seen for two months; most of our contact is at school and out with friends on trips that are arranged in school, as he lives far away) is a big guitar fanatic. He plays seriously well and has at least 4 guitars and an amp 4 times the size of mine.

He also has at least 20 magic sets and a spongebob costume. He is an entertainer dood. How rad.

I have a cheap little Johnson electric. It doesn't sound great, but I don't need perfect sound since I only use it to play around on. Someday if I ever do something with my skillz I need to get a new one.

I have 2 Yamahas: an acoustic, and a Strat copy which I got for my 17th birthday. I much prefer it to my acoustic.

Anyone want an acoustic guitar? I'm really thinking about selling it.

I'm bumping this because it has the potential to be an epic thread.

And because I talk about guitar too much in RT.

I'm in my second semester of classical guitar classes. Tis fun, tis fun. Today we learned about the circle of fives, so ideally I'll memorize that and be able to know what to do if I'm just doing some improv.

Oh well.

Also, I've had my eye on an Epiphone Thunderbird IV bass for a while. Yeah, I know it's just a Gibson copy, but I've tried it out, and it's a great bass. Also some new tabs, because I had nothing better to do.

I just played that. I dislike it.

I too have an Ibanez. I'm OK at the moment, trying to get better.

It's too...I dunno...chromatic? If you wanna write hooky bass lines, I'd suggest basing it around the pentatonic/blues scale. But I'm a guitar guy so you have every right to not listen to me.

Really? It sounded OK through my amp.

Tuning difference, perhaps? I'll agree that it can be a little flat-sounding at some parts, but I don't hate it.

Nah, you're probably right.

I've tweeked it a lot since I posted it, though. It's now at "Not suck" level.

I got a crappy stock Peavey and a tiny amp. I probably end up sticker slapping it.

If you could ever afford it, you should do it.

Also, if you were wondering (you probably weren't), here's what the tweaked tab looks like.

G|5-5-------------
D|---4--4---------
A|-------3-3-2-2/3
E|----------------

Don't you just love writing lame tabs when you're bored out of your very skull?

^It has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. It's four notes that don't seem to be in any key or anything.
