Funny enough I had an acoustic for a long time, very long time, although never felt the want to pick it up and learn the guitar. No offence, but as a young lad it looked a bit boring to me, and didn't spark any real interest.
Been listening to rock & metal since the age of 10. More on and off around my 20's. But I've returned back to rock & metal and have done so for a good fews years. Absolutely love Def Lep and all the others I mentioned, so much so that I find the sound of the electric guitar fantastic! Only over the past couple of months of seeing a few guitar cover solos of various songs has it ignited a want to learn and play for myself.
The only thing I'm a bit scared of is the time to dedicate to playing.
I work full-time, and when I'm not working I'm either: weight training, tending to my birds, lol, I'm a keeper, breeder & exhibitor of a small type of Canary. I also have an interest in cigars (Cuban). I have a 7month old Son too. So, squeezing something extra in to my spare time - I'm a little scared that the time element might be an issue?
Also, learning the guitar, more often I'd imagine I'd have my headphones on. Something that the Mrs might find annoying after a while? These are just the only concerns?. lol
