hey guys! so I want to learn how to play guitar and have no clue about them. But first, back story.
Ok, when I was around 5, I would go from happy to sad, hyper to down…so my doctor sent to do some testing. They thought I was either bi-polar or ADD. They weren’t sure, so they gave me a pill for ADD, and they told my mom to have someone with her because I would literally freak out and have a tantrum. And in the end, it was a fiasco. We found out I was bi-polar real quick…haha. So within a few weeks I was seeing a doctor to prescribe medicine. He also said I needed to find something artistic, like instruments or something. I started taking the pills,and in Christmas of '05, guess what I got!? A brand new B.C Rich black/white warlock electric guitar. I was amazed. But I soon found out, that you can’t just strum strings and this beautiful melody comes out. Within a year of trying, I gave up. I stuck to the medicine for around 3 or 4 years. I stopped because I found Christ. It was Awsome not taking pills everyday. But good things only last so long. And for the last few months this bi-polar thing has gotten worse. Back to the way it was. Luckily I still have Church, and yoyo’s:) I just need something more. This is where the guitar comes in.
My mom took the guitar to the local music shop and got it up and running again. From what I have seen theres quite a few guys who can play on YYE. I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a few pointers. What gear to use and what videos to watch. Please help me. I feel like it could really help me when I get in a mood.
